Sexual innuendo in I Love Lucy


Recommended Posts

Well, everytime I see Ricky put Lucy over his knee and spank her bottom, this is the look on my face -- :lucycoy: .

 

Then there's that episode where they're talking about "zorches," the one where Lucy is faking being sick. I've always heard that a "zorch" is another term for the female anatomy, and the things they're saying about zorches and "gobloots" makes me go :lucywow: . HAHA

"Ohhh...I'm gonna need more than 15 minutes for THAT!" :peachonthebeach:

 

"Fred was trying to bury his bone in my tulip bed!" :lucyhorror:

 

"My flint is skinnier than his??"

 

"You thought that we??....that I ???...WELL!!" :P:viv1:

 

lolz I never knew how many things had a hidden meaning for sex, especially "burying his bone in my tulip bed." I wonder if that would actually be considered one.

Loving it. :D

 

The big Ones:

 

 

"Ethel:You know he's got himself trained so he can do anything in less than a minute" (the crowd get this one even!

"Ricky and Fred are TV Fans"

 

"Lucy: Hellen Ann Mary Cynitha Alice Theaodore....THEADORE" the biggest one of them all lolol I thought this was soooo risqué' for 1951 TV

"Lucy Think Ricky Is Trying To Kill Her"

 

"I'm a lousy business man, but I like the way you sing babalu so I'll take it...Adios!"

"Redecorating"

 

"I woke you up after the first trip but you said you and your friend wanted to sleep...Oh Boy, you must have really tied one on"

"Staten Island Ferry"

 

THE ENTIRE BEDROOM SCENE IN "HANDCUFFS" ALWAYS MAKES ME FEEL a lil..odd LOLOL but its only my inner vulgarity

 

"Gosh this is the first time i've ever had my arms around a woman, now I know what all the falls are talkin about"

"The Young Fans

Theres an episode (I believe somewhere in season one) where Lucy and Ricky stumble out of the bedroom, into the living room with Lucy all but hanging on Ricky and they both look tremendously happy. I believe as they come into the living room Lucy says something to the tune of "do you have to go to rehearsal?" I have always thought they looked like they just had sex.

Well, she just thought he certainly did not need to REHEARSE anything in THERE! The shocking thing was seeing Fred and Ethel come out next, their first wife swapping session.

You know what absolutely amazes me. That in the 1950's it was so "taboo" for a woman to appear on national television pregnant, but it was just fine for a man to put his wife over his knee, and spank her, on a family sit-com.

Not sure if anyone has ever brought this up before, but I just caught a very funny and very edgey (for the 1950s) innuendo in the episode "Ricky & Fred are TV Fans".

 

When Lucy and Ethel are sitting in the kitchen near the beginning of the episode, Ethel comments, "You know [Fred] has got himself trained so he can do anything in less than a minute?"

 

Anything? Haha.

 

And the best part is the laughter from the audience. It's not as spontaneous as their laughter at more innocuous jokes ... they kinda start laughing, as if they're hesitant, and then it grows.

 

Just thought that was very, very funny.

Very few references to Fred and Ethel being sexual---except for "2nd Honeymoon", but how could they in that canoe bed?

Then there's "Drafted" where Fred thinks Ethel might be having a "blessed event".

 

Ethel: "It certainly wasn't a blessed event that caused it!"

Oh I forgot about those few!

And of course the Lucy and Ricky references!

"Oh I'm gonna need more than 15 minutes for that!"

andddd the infamous "Camping Trip" reference!

Saw it just a few weeks ago and got the innuendo and laughed, LOL!

I don't know if anyone noticed, but the Comedy Hour Episode "Lucy's Summer Vacation" displays a rather sexually-frustrated Lucy (and guest star Ida Lupino). It's hilarious to see Lucy and Ida throw themselves at (and on) their husbands to no avail. It was like Lucy wanted to jump Ricky's bones at any given opportunity...too bad Ricky wasn't trying to give her any play lol. He could've used some viagra!

True, considering Desi Arnaz probably owns the patent on Viagra. I saw the one referred to earlier about FRED HAS TIMED IT SO HE CAN DO EVERYTHING IN ONE MINUTE one a few nights ago and the audience does seem to laugh atthe sexual innuendo rather than just the funny line, LOL!

I dunno if I counted these:

 

Talking about Syliva Collins dress when they are playing cards:

 

How do you suppose she kept it up

 

Lucy: Two diamonds (her two titas) lol The TV audience passes right through it, but the radio audience in MFH busts up! lol

 

****

 

I always thought Freddy was doing something extra with Ethel on that S.S. Constitution, or whatever boat they sailed on and had the second honeymoon with.

 

****

 

When Mr Henderson pulls her coat lol I LOVED Lucys look!

 

*****

 

The guy who offered the girls to come to his room since Eddy wouldnt let them into his. lolol

The part is so small, but so funny, it always surprises me lolol
