Episode Watch Party S01 E11: “Drafted”

Satirical commentary of I Love Lucy every Friday! Here’s the info to watch ahead, plus all the WTFacts for this week. 

This Week’s Episode:


Original Air Date:

December 24, 1951

This Week’s WTFacts:

  • Yes, you read that right. This episode aired on Christmas Eve. It is not Christmas themed. At the very end, they add a seasonal “surprise,” and things get weird.
  • When Ricky hums a lullaby near the end, it’s from a song Desi co-wrote in 1951, called “There’s a Brand New Baby in Our House.” That title sounds like a brand new parent wrote it in a sleepless attempt at creativity. 
  • The party guests were named after Lucy and Desi’s real friends. Because unlike in the show, the couple had more friends than just the owners of their building.

See you Friday!
