Editor’s note: Even though February’s Charm School has come and gone, I still find myself coming across lovely gems like this one. If you might indulge me, I will share a few throughout the year as a bit of Charm School Extra Credit.
I Love Lucy: The Charm School
Season 3, Episode 14, Aired 1/25/54
After allegedly being ignored by their husbands in favor of “pretty girls” at a party, Lucy and Ethel enroll in a charm school taught by actress Natalie Schafer (you may recognize her as Lovey Howell from Gilligan’s Island) in an effort to become “well-groomed and charming and attractive.” Of course, classic Lucy hijinks ensue.
When they present their glammed-up new and improved selves to Ricky and Fred, the men have a bit of a laugh before reminding the ladies that they love them just the way they are — a bit like our very last Charm School lesson, Day 29: The Icing, no?
