Remembering Red Skelton

Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, I witnessed many special moments on television.  I can still remember the transition from black and white televisions to color.  Shows were only available on the “big three” networks as cable offerings wouldn’t arrive for several years.

One of my family’s favorite shows was “The Red Skelton Show.”  The show will always remain a classic with the honest and genuine humor (nothing ever offended the viewers).  Red Skelton was the consummate professional, and his authentic enthusiasm for entertaining America was present in every show.

At the end of each show, Skelton paid honor and appreciation to his television audience with the simple words, “Goodnight and may God Bless.”

A recent posting of a YouTube video reminded me of the deep patriotism of Red Skelton.  I cannot remember seeing this segment so it was a treasure to view.  Enjoy Skelton’s serious and throughtful interpretation of the “Pledge of Allegiance” from one of his shows back in 1969.  The man clearly loved and cared about America.
