Trivia

The sketch opens in Red's bedroom where Red and his butler, Reggie, discover the way to rid LA of its famous smog. The city's Smog Czar has offered a $10,000,000 prize to anyone who can provide the way to dispatch the smog. Gangster Muggsy Lasagna (George Raft) learns that Red has solved the problem, has him kidnapped, and orders his moll (Viki Raaf) to seduce Red into giving up the formula. The plot is successful but Red holds back on one of the ingredients, so when Lasagna presents the plan to the Smog Czar, it fails to work. Red has escaped from Lasagna's apartment and appears before the Smog Czar with the correct formula. Red successfully proves that his secret works, but in the process of eliminating the smog, swarms of mosquitoes suddenly appear and attack all citizens. Thus, Red must return home and figure out how to return the smog again to chase the mosquitoes away. The dancing Redettes perform an anti-smog production number. See more »
