  • Trivia

    • This episode first reran on October 20, 1952. As he planned out the second season, Jess Oppenheimer knew Lucille could not film enough episodes in advance to use during her maternity leave. Finally realizing that the shows were on film, allowing for rebroadcast, he reran several of the first season episodes to use throughout Lucille's pregnancy. It was from this show that the idea of television show reruns originated.
