Red Skelton - Classic Commercials! Among America's great comedians, Red Skelton is certainly the most beloved, along with his gallery of characters, including Clem Kadiddlehopper, San Fernando Red, and of course, Freddie the Freeloader. Red Skelton entertained us with his charm, wit and warmth for decades, on stage, on radio, in the movies, and on his hit television program. Movie and television stars lined up to appear on his television show, week after week, year after year, entertaining us and themselves in funny skits with Red.

The video quality of Red Skelton Bloopers, Blunders & Ad-Libs is consistent with the early 60's and late 50's when they were filmed or maybe a bit better. I suspect these may have had some digital "cleaning-up" but you can only do so much... If you are younger than 50 and watching the quality may be distracting. I suggest you take it as proof of its authenticity.
This is one of the best blooper-reels I've seen of 1950's/1960's TV. The content is funnier, better paced, and visually better with some (suspected) digital enhancement. The video quality is consistent with the times so don't expect anything close to modern quality! It's one of the best of its kind so I'm giving it 5 stars. If you remember the Red Skelton show fondly this will likely be a worthwhile hour and 5 minutes. It had me laughing out loud.
This is old film footage so a lot less of quality than a 1080p HD blue ray disc of today. Some of the footage is rough but it does not take away from one of the funiest men that ever lived. I love live comedy and have been to many shows in my life and i must say i have so much love and respect for this very talented man. The show is excellent Red Skelton work, characters are great and watching his view on the American Pledge of Allegiance is even more applicable today than it was when he performed it. This is a statement from a true performer that loved his trade, his people and the contry that gave him the freedom to practice his comedy without the fear of recourse. Lets make it simple, the CLASS ACT OF COMEDY.
