Louise is portrayed by Irene Vernon in thirteen episodes over the show's first two seasons (1964-1966). After Vernon's departure, Kasey Rogers played the part of Louise in thirty-three episodes for the remainder of the series (1966-1972).


  1. In "Bewitched, Bothered and Infuriated", which takes place in 1967, it is stated ten years have elapsed since Larry and Louise's first honeymoon, which may lead some to assume they were married sometime around 1957. However, in Season One, episode twelve "...And Something Makes Three" (which takes place in 1964), Louise states that she is finally pregnant after sixteen years, so it is possible their first honeymoon took place some years after they were married.
