Did You Know?


There was never an episode in this series in which Red portrayed as many different characters as this one, a spoof of around-the-world newsworthy events from throughout history. The redhead not only portrays Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Chinese, Turkish, English, and American newspapermen but also the subjects on which they report. As a Roman sportswriter, Red describes an arena confrontation between Cauliflower McPuggius and an ape; as Lancelot, Red covers a battle between the Black Knight and the Pink Pussycat (Red). The Tom Hansen Dancers perform a modern Greek version of 'Mississippi Mud' and a Turkish harem dance of 'Scheherezade.' The Silent Spot features Red as an amorous sheik in 'The Sexy Sultan.'
