The Red Skelton Show season 1

The Red Skelton Show season 1

The Red Skelton Show season 1 – the very first season of Red Skelton‘s long-running television show. It’s interesting how many things became recurring items … and what didn’t. For example, at the end of each episode, Red is knocked over and dragged backwards through the curtain!
