RED SKELTON HOUR IN COLOR REVIEWED
“The Red Skelton Hour in Color” shows America a comedian that their grandparents love. While the jokes play broad, it’s nothing worse than your standard classic Looney Tunes cartoon. Three discs are presented here with a ton of guest stars. I love that Time Life is dedicated to saving these slices of American TV history. I just wish they were done in a way that made them far more approachable to the under 80 crowd. But, I guess that would take another DVD release to pull off. If you don’t know who Red Skelton is, then venture over to Wikipedia and brush up. I know you’re not going over there, hence why I didn’t link you.
