Trivia

Red open the show with several Gertrude and Heathcliffe gags, then performs a British Lord Beaverhead sketch as the Englishman reads the news. The weather forecaster is called in and it turns out to be none other than Jackie Gleason as Reginald Van Gleason III, complete with his "Shangri-La" theme music. The Barry Sisters entertain with a song. The second sketch, titled "Accidents Will Happen", features Freddie the Freeloader who has been hit by a truck and ends up creating havoc in City Hospital.
