I Love Lucy “The Fur Coat”

In this clip, from “The Fur Coat” ( Season 1, Episode 10, aired 12/10/1951), Ricky returns home with a 00 mink coat that he has rented for an act at the club. Lucy immediately jumps to the conclusion that it’s her anniversary present. Lucy is so delighted with her “present” that she eats, sleeps, and even does the dishes wearing the mink. Ricky decides to get the coat back by having Fred dress up as a thief and “steal” it, but before he does, a REAL burglar almost makes off with the coat! When Lucy learns from Ethel of his plan, she decides to teach her hubby a lesson. Buying a cheap imitation mink, she decides to “restyle” it (with a pair of scissors) in full view of Ricky.

    For a look at a color model of the I Love Lucy set, Google “I Love Lucy Charles Brogdon” and hit the I’m feeling Lucky button.

    some trivia

    at 0:36 Ricky says “ill get her a couple of minks and let her raise her own coat” the word coat was dubbed in……you can actually see him mouth the word “fur”

    I’ve always found Desi funnier than Lucy, and Abbott funnier than Costello. Desi really gets a chance to shine here, he’s outrageously funny. It doesn’t even matter that nothing makes sense here… if he wanted to stop Lucy from cutting the coat, he could have, instead of going nuts. Speaking of nothing making sense, Fred’s looking pretty dapper in suit and tie.

    @JoeB0y16 They obviously didn’t extend the set out far enough for the camera shot. I’ve seen worse on sitcoms.

    I love when Ricky says “Don cut it no more”

  16. rippingtons60 says:

    It was good but too quick, she should have done it slowly cutting little pieces at at a time, Thats what I would have done.

  17. MariaPereyra says:

    At least he had the cutoff mink to break the fall!
