Freddie's Shipwreck - with Sebastian Cabot,Red Skelton as Freddie the Freeloader - The Red Skelton Show season 10

The Red Skelton Show season 10 is somewhat unusual. Red Skelton was out for part of the season, recovering from back surgery. And so, several of his friends filled in to guest host. These include: Jackie Gleason, Ed Sullivan, Desi Arnaz, Arthur Godfrey, and others. In addition, Red started off the season with a special pantomime performance taped at the United Nations. Enjoy!
