A clown with a heart of gold, Red Skelton's mission in life was to make people laugh. A first-class comedian, Skelton won the world over with his legendary alter-egos including Junior the Mean Widdle Kid (famous for the expression, "I dood it"); country bumpkin Clem Kadiddlehopper; clown hobo Freddie the Freeloader; con man San Fernando Red; henpecked husband George Appleby; drunkard Willie Lump Lump; boxer Cauliflower McPugg; and the not-so-honest lawman, Sheriff Deadeye. These characters and more made appearances on his popular television series The Red Skelton Show-the second longest running TV show in history at twenty years of broadcasting. For the duration of this time, Skelton's series maintained top ten and top twenty ratings and won several awards. Packed with celebrity guests, pratfalls, pranks, and silly sketches, The Red Skelton Show continues to delight audiences time and time again, proving that Red Skelton is indeed "America's favorite funnyman."
