    Red’s comedic genius was one of a kind! He is sorely missed!!

    @MadsNoble The first few shows started broadcasting color in late 1964. In 1965, they started making all the new shows in color. If you’ve seen re-runs of “Bewitched”, you will notice just the first year (1964) was in black & white.

  5. MadsNoble says:

    I am just wondering, what year did color tv start?

    @JohnnyContagious Run along little troll.

    It is inconceivable how anybody found this talentless fuck even remotely amusing. I’m sure the morons at Republican fundraisers fell about laughing at Red’s ‘hilarious’ antics. I’d rather stick needles in my eyes than listen to any more of this utter, utter drivel.

    @tuxguys, Great description. My father turned me on to Vaudeville and the comedians and famous actors from their day. Physical humor like this or Dick Van Dyke, or many of the Vaudeville acts involved this. Thanks!

    This may be Skelton’s signature piece, and it’s a masterpiece. Even Carson would cite it on occasion (‘Smooooooooooooooth!”), and assume that everyone, or at least the very hip, would get the reference.

    WTF? You have assbergers for cinema history or somthing? Lol.

  16. RayDiTutto66 says:

  17. imolderthanu2 says:

    in the forties, not everyone had Television and thus, a lot of shows were also broad-casted on radios.

  18. twinstarace420 says:

    And Jeff Dunham’s Peanut character just whizzed his hand over his head…

  20. tkhering says:

    Notice the Blooper at the beginning? This is introduced as a Television show, but Red immediately tells Mama to come close to the “radio.”

  21. KillerKabel says:

    Physical humor?

    Non-violent, physical humor?

    Holy shit!

    Epic hat flip.

    In addition, the “Garter” poem was rehashed by Benny Hill in his March 5, 1980 “Court Jester” sketch, with the second line changed a bit to “They cost me one-and-ten,” and the last modified to “I shan’ t see them again!”

  24. MyREDTAIL says:
