Satirical commentary of I Love Lucy every Friday! Here are this week’s WTFacts.
This Week’s Episode:
“The Marriage License”
Original Air Date:
April 7, 1952
This Week’s WTFacts:
- I absolutely love the Willoughby couple at the inn. They are some of my favorites from the whole show. And they’ll be back! As Ethel’s father, and as neighbor/babysitter Mrs. Trumbull.
- Ricky’s name on the license reads “Bicardi.” And in fact, Desi’s grandfather was one of the founders of Bacardi rum.
- This was the first TV episode ever to be viewed by 10 million people.
- Lucy and Ricky go back to the Byram River Beagle Club in Greenwich, CT. That’s where Lucy and Desi actually got married by a justice of the peace and, just like on the show, they married twice.
See you Friday!
