Plot Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Songstress Keely Smith performs "One for the Road", "Where Is Love", "At Long Last Love" and "The End of a Love Affair", and joins Red Skelton in the comedy sketch "A Midsummer Nut's Dream." The premise: hillbilly Clem Kadiddlehopper (Red) becomes a singing sensation, while his sweetheart Daisy June (Keely) pines away back on the farm. In the Silent Spot, Red performs a "Willie Lump Lump" routine with Doris Singleton as his wife; he's cold sober when she's in the room, drunk as a skunk when she isn't. This episode aired May 7, 1963.
