02/03/1970 - [TV ep. 19.19] Mike Connors, Danny Davis and the Nashville Brass
by Hal Erickson
The recent spate of airline hijackings provided comedy material for the February 3, 1970 edition of The Red Skelton Hour. Red and Mike Connors play pilots torn between two hijackers with two entirely different destinations. In another sketch, Mike plays a plastic surgeon, trying to perform miracles on the battered countenance of boxer Cauliflower McPugg (Red). Danny Davis and the Nashville Brass perform "Wabash Cannonball", then the Brass goes it alone on "Lonely Street". In the Silent Spot, Charlie the Swinger encounters difficulty trying to pick up his date for the evening.
