Twenty years after The Red Skelton Show first aired on NBC in 1951, the extraordinary Red Skelton, America's Clown Prince, appeared on NBC in his last regular season comedy show. Red brought all his wonderful characters to life once again and for the last time on network television: Clem Kadiddlehopper, Sheriff Deadeye, Freddie the Freeloader, George Appleby and San Fernando Red. Joining Red were a host of guest stars, including Jerry Lewis, Vincent Price, Robert Wagner, Mickey Rooney, Jill St. John, Phyllis Diller and many more.
Timeless Media Group is proud to present Red Skelton's final season, approved by the Red Skelton Estate. The box set includes 23 shows in all, on three faithfully reproduced DVD's, with all of Red's guests and his unforgettable characters, the original music of David Rose and his Orchestra, and The Burgundy Street Singers. Shot in beautiful color, these shows stand the test of time, from the opening monologues, a Skelton trademark, to the hilarious skits and talented guest stars. Each side-splitting show also includes a silent skit with Red and his guests performing in pantomime (watch for Merv Griffin's surprise cameo performance with Red and Van Johnson!)
Whether you have been a long-time fan, or are just discovering America's Clown Prince, this special 3 DVD disc set is a must-have collection of Red Skelton's unique comedy genius.
