|Plot Synopsis||by Hal Erickson|
Canary-voiced Tiny Tim joins Audrey Meadows, Mickey and Jackie Coogan in this priceless February 24, 1970 edition of The Red Skelton Hour. In an elaborate "Three Musketeers" sketch, Red, Mickey and Jackie go to rescue the Queen (Audrey Meadows)-but bring back Tiny Tim instead! Musical highlights: "A Bird in a Gilded Cage" (Tiny Tim); "March of the Musketeers" (Red, Mickey, Tim); "One of Those Songs" (Jimmy Joyce Singers, Tom Hansen Dancers). In the Silent Spot, Red recreates his characterization of a persnickety street cleaner.
