Yes I noticed that too. Edits were very minimal. They edited out Lucy devouring the mini cakes by a few bites.

They also ended some scenes a few second early, including Lucy saying, “This is your old chum, Lucy” to Carolyn on the telephone. 

The edits on this episode were pretty seamless.

Another Wondaful special. Love the colors and I agree this is the best colorization yet. Wish CBS would put this on every week...or maybe a limited series like "Lucy In Connecticut."  My only beef, I don't like that announcing at the beginning..........but IF you insist on an announcer where is "also seen tonight Frank Nelson....etc etc. etc. and of course  "I Love Lucy is a Desilu Production"?

Ethel was wearing the same outfit on the second day of Dickie Davis' show, or was that on purpose? I also noticed a few times that the inside of their mouths were still gray but that probably wasn't easy to colorize. Never knew Lucy's blue and red striped dress was actually seen in a color publicity photo! I thought they had to wear mostly gray and drab so it would show up better on film. Forgot that Ricky's pajamas were red checkered. Was Lucy's flowered (pink and gray) dress in Bonus Bucks really that color? I always thought it was red. 

The edits on this episode were seamless and nothing major seemed to be missing, only thing I noticed was a bit of Lucy counting the jars, and part of Ricky trying to hide the dollar and they just cut out when he pretended to come home. Also, was there more dialogue when he was trying to explain to the laundry foreman about their predicament? They could've just asked someone to get the blue bag for them but then we wouldn't have seen the end result!

Yes that was the actual color.

I was so bummed not to be able to see this live due to Easter travels, but having got home last night at 2 am I devoured it immediately. Stunning work that just gets better every time. And I too was struck by the contrast with the colour television and b/w picture. 😍
