The following article contains heavy spoilers for the first seven episodes of WandaVision. If you haven’t seen them yet, and want to avoid being spoiled, come back once you’ve gotten past episode 7. If you’ve already seen up to that point, or simply don’t mind spoilers, then feel free to enjoy the article.
It’s been quite a ride, but today WandaVision comes to an end. While we may be sad to see such an incredible show end, now is the perfect time to look back at it and recap one of its greatest additions – opening intros. Each of WandaVision’s six intros – and one bonus song – are all based on iconic sitcoms throughout the decades.
Below, we’ve taken the time to break down the inspirations behind each of them and give a little explanation of their significance. Keep in mind that episode 4 and episode 8 do not have an intro, so there is nothing noteworthy to mention about each.
Now, with all that said, let’s recap all six openings intros in WandaVision.
Episode 1 – Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience
The first episode, titled “Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience,” is based on the iconic black and white sitcom, I Love Lucy.
I Love Lucy follows the story of husband and wife, Ricky and Lucy Ricardo, showing their day-to-day exploits and interactions as a couple. To this day, they are remembered as one of the most iconic duos in all of television.
It should come as no surprise that a woman trying to cope with the loss of her partner would choose to harken back to a show all about a happy couple. Lucy and Ricky also often found themselves getting into some crazy antics, not unlike Wanda and Vision.
The lyrics don’t reveal too much of the WandaVision’s deeper plots, but is still quite fun!
