Skelton was known as a TV clown who portrayed many comical characters
such as Clem Kadiddlehopper and Freddie the Freeloader. He was a long-
time national radio and television star for 34 years. Following the death of
his father, Red first started work at the age of seven as a newspaper boy
and later auditioned at the age of 10 for a role in a medicine show.
