The Quiz Show Winner, Willy Lump Lump

Willie Lump Lump can’t stop being the quiz show winner! And he has nowhere to keep all his winnings! He’s even afraid to answer the phone … Also Deadeye rolls a cigarette, and a televised surgery?

Quiz Show Winner – The Red Skelton Show season 2, originally aired March 29, 1953


Red does a short sketch at a magazine rack, where he buys a newspaper. But then he finds out it’s yesterday’s newspaper! So he’s shaking the machine upside down — and a police officer comes by!

Texas Deadeye

The first Skelton Scrapbook skit is “Texas Deadeye”. Cowgirl Lucy Knoch tries to teach Deadeye how a “real” Texan would roll his own cigarette. She even borrows him a tobacco pouch and some cigarette papers — what a nice lady. But then, Deadeye demonstrates that it’s not as easy as it looks! A very funny routine.

Dr. Homer Hemoglobin

Making fun of TV shows about hospitals and surgery, “Dr. Homer Hemoglobin” has Red portraying the very successful surgeon performing a televised operation. And, of course Tide saves day.
