    1:33 I just thought of an idea! Why don’t Danny, at that moment, end the show by saying, “Why don’t we play it be ear, then that way when somebody walks in, they won’t know the difference!”

    somebody was wearing lifts there, because Desi was supposed to be 5’11″ and Danny looked almost shoulder to should with him.

    Actually, Danny was his own “boss”- his series was produced by his “Marterto Enterprises” (an amalgam of his kids’ names) company; Desilu was the facilities he filmed at [and he shared a long friendship with Desi Arnaz and Lucy as well]. This episode was a “sequel” to Danny and his cast’s December 1958 appearance on “THE WESTINGHOUSE LUCILLE BALL-DESI ARNAZ SHOW” {“THE LUCY-DESI COMEDY HOUR”} episode, as the “Ricardos” visit Danny and his family in New York- and Lucy screws things up again.
