Red Skelton, the legendary comedian/ funny man/ clown, was a giant entertainment figure for over half a century. His name and his legend live on after his passing in 1997. Forever known as one of the ultimate family entertainers, Red performed many legendary characters that left his viewers in stitches over his zany, unexpected and classically hilarious skits. This Red Skelton Holiday Collection will brighten your holiday season with laughter.
This Red Skelton Christmas special features the hilarious skit "The Cop and The Anthem." Red plays the unforgettable bum "Freddie the Freeloader" who, in his own comedic fashion, finds himself searching for a warm place to spend Christmas.
This holiday special begins with an entertaining song and dance routine honoring Thanksgiving. This classic program then sends the audience into hysterics as Red plays a wacky pilgrim who wreaks havoc at the inaugural Thanksgiving feast.
A celebration of the life and accomplishments of Red Skelton, this "Hall Of Fame" episode honors the "King of the Clowns." This classic biography features short clips of old skit's and specials with great guests like the legendary John Wayne."
DVD has poor VHS EP quality of CLASSIC prime live TV comedy.

"The comedy is classic and live, Red has fun adlibbing with his guests. The shows are fun to watch, but you better use a small screen TV. The image is no better than a second generation VHS tape at EP recording speed. It's DVD quality like this that makes one cautious about what labels to purchase from. It is too bad that Brentwood didn't get the original film kinescopes to master this classic material from. Hopefully this material will re-appear under another company DVD for better enjoyment."
