Red Skelton Show Tidbits

The Red Skelton Show began on radio in 1941 and was a success but television was the medium which best showcased the huge talents of Red Skelton. Radio didn't allow for Skelton to demonstrate his gift for pantomine and sight gags.

The show always featured a guest star and some skits. Musical guests performed and one of the first TV appearances of the Rolling Stones was on Red Skelton.

But it was for the wonderful characters Skelton created that people tuned in. Among those characters:
Clem Kadiddlehopper
Freddy Freeloader
The Mean Widdle Kid
Sheriff Deadeye
Willy Lump Lump
Cauliflower McPugg
Bolivar Shagnasty
San Fernando Red


Skelton always closed his show with "God Bless."

Passings

Red Skelton died in 1997 of pneumonia.
