Neighbors – a short commentary Red Skelton made at the end of “The Eyes Have it” about neighbors, and destructive gossip

Neighbors – a short statement that Red Skelton made at the end of The Eyes Have ItThe Red Skelton Show season 2

“[I] would like to say one little thing with a note of seriousness. Our country is a pretty great country, and our neighbors, so long as we stay neighbors, we can be a happy country. And just remember one thing: when you talk about your neighbor, it causes a little unhappiness along the way. And remember that a word is like a seed. It grows from a seed into a sentence, and from a sentence to a paragraph, from a paragraph to a fabulous story. And there’s enough dirt in some peoples minds to make things grow.”
