"A long-forgotten 1966 summer replacement series for "The Red Skelton Show" makes its way to DVD via Timeless Media Group. "Hippodrome" was a variety show combining performances by great musical acts of the day along with some of Europe's top circus acts.
If you are expecting complete shows, don't look to this DVD set. As always, the legal nightmare of music and performance clearances has resulted in these shows being heavily edited. All the great musical guests have been removed, leaving each show with an average running time of 24 minutes (from the original 51 minutes).
Timeless Media does get credit for even considering the release of such an obscure item from television's past, but the removal of such critical content makes it hardly worth the effort."
