Oh, what a wonderful man he was. Love his "Pledge of Allegiance," too.
Bought several of his acts on DVD.

Thanks for this. I realize how much I miss this kind of humor. I loved the Carol Burnett show also because the comedians laughed with us. Thanks.

That is true comedy. What passes for comedy today is an insult to our intelligence.

Thanks for the beautiful memories and laughs. He was such a wonderful man. Did you know that he was also quite the artist? I was in a casino in Nevada several years back. I decided to visit the shops and went into one that had a lot of artwork. They had pictures of all these really neat clowns. The proprietor informed me they were all done by Red Skeleton. These were reprints, of course, but they were all amazing pictures. I wish I'd had enough money at the time to purchase one.

He was a master at his art. I am afraid today he would be booed of the stage.

My dad went to school with Red in Vincennes, In. At one time there was a picture of patrol boys and both my dad and Red were in the picture. Due to my dads sister I never got the picture. Red was holding his patrol flag at a different angle than the others - to be funny.
I went up to Vincennes this year for the Red Skelton Day parade. It was advertised as 1000 clowns - I think they were short a few hundred short even if they counted everyone in the parade - but it was cute and the kids had a good time.

I loved Red too. I remember watching his acts on TVs of the hobo. Gave me a laugh all the time.

Yes, that sure brings back the memories. He was highly intelligent and a lovely man.
