Red Skelton performs as Willie Lump-Lump.
Did You Know?
Red's opening monologue contains many jokes about the beach, such as demonstrating the different types of different people you run into at the beach. The musical interlude is provided by a group of dancing children named the Covan Kiddies. The first sketch finds Willie Lump Lump on the golf course with his boss and the boss's wife. During the skit, a couple (Eleana Verdugo and Marvin Kaplan from the "Meet Millie" series) requests permission to play though. Red announces he is returning the favor by appearing on "Meet Millie." The main sketch, titled "Mississippi Showboat" features Red as Colonel Hamhock, an early version of con man San Fernando Red, romancing a Southern belle, cheating at cards at the poker table, and challenging another passenger to a duel.
