    Here is a description I found on another website that I pasted below. It sounds like this set is the Red Skelton Unreleased series with bonus unreleased episodes – only available at greater prices, plus compilations previously seen on PBS. I would buy it but this company keeps re-releasing estate authorized episodes under a multitude of different packages. But, I would say its a great buy for someone new to Red’s humor. I’m holding out for the bio dvd to be released separately…

    Among America’s great comedians, Red Skelton is certainly the most beloved, along with his gallery of characters, including Clem Kadiddlehopper, San Fernando Red, and of course, Freddie the Freeloader. Red Skelton entertained us with his charm, wit and warmth for decades, on stage, on radio, in the movies, and on his hit television program. Movie and television stars lined up to appear on his television show, week after week, year after year, entertaining us and themselves in funny skits with Red. This 18 DVD boxed set brings you over 33 hours of Red’s unique brand of comedy, including: “Red Skelton Unreleased” – 40 rare, classic shows from the black and white version of “The Red Skelton Show”, with special guest stars Danny Thomas, Sebastian Cabot, Amanda Blake, Jackie Gleason, Peter Lorre, and many, many more; “Red Skelton In Color” – “The Red Skelton Show” in color. 23 color shows featuring guest stars, Michael Landon, Telly Savalas, Jill St. John, Jerry Lewis, Mike Connors and more!; “The Best Of Red Skelton” – A one hour selection of Red’s skits in color; “Pantomimes” – The best of Red’s wordless, priceless pantomimes; “Red Skelton: America’s Clown” – An intimate biography of Red Skelton; “Getting Personal” – A very special interview with Red Skelton; “Live In Sparks Nevada” – Red’s unedited night club performance at the Nuggett Hotel; and “The Pledge Of Allegiance” – As only Red, a unique American patriot, could recite it.

    It was great being able to watch Red Skelton after so many years. Every Tuesday when I was a child was spent in front of the old black and white TV watching this comic who was as truthful with his jokes as any satirist just funnier. It was and is a pleasure to show this old show with other deceased stars to my kids and their kids.He was one of a kind. Good night and may God bless.

    I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend who has loved Red Skelton since childhood. He had no other DVD’s of him. This covered everything this very talented man did..all his impersonations, plus there is a bonus concert that is really funny. Well worth it!!!!!!!
