This is the first episode sponsored by Westinghouse. Ford Motor Company only sponsored the first 5 episodes. A Westinghouse special was filmed with the cast, where Lucy Arnaz, (the only time she is ever called by Arnaz on television) acts like the Lucy Ricardo character, wanting to buy Westinghouse products for her dressing room, while Desi tells her not to spend a lot of money. Vivian Vance and William Frawley portray themselves, though they act like the Mertzes. As usual, Lucy overspends her budget behind Desi's back, only to later get caught.
Additionally, beginning this season, Desilu and Westinghouse would sponsor the Westinghouse Desilu playhouse, which aired during the many weeks that the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was not on, in the same time slot.
