"Hot Lips Hannigan" is the second episode of Season 1. Original Airdate:October 7, 1960


Believing he has made Wilma and Betty disappear through magic, Fred capitalizes on his newfound freedom by taking Barney to a nightclub, the Rockland, where an old friend, trumpeter Hot Lips Hannigan, is performing. Fred even sings a song (the Saints). The jazz is cool until the wives show up, disguised as "hep chicks", to teach their wayward husbands a lesson.



  • This is one of two episodes in which Fred has ability to sing. After the start of season two, Fred no longer has such abilities.
