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.
