The Red Skelton Hour with guests The Rolling Stones (1964)

What's with that ABC logo in front of this clip? Skelton was on CBS during this period and NBC before and after but never on ABC. Later in the clip, we even see the CBD "eye." Was the ABC logo just appended for some reason by the uploader? Weird.

I always enjoy these generation gap pairings. This one went better than the infamous Dean Martin presentation of The Rolling Stones on Hollywood Palace.

But seeing ole Red desperately trying to seem relevant to teenagers puts me in mind of the lyrics to "The Times They Are A-Changin'" by Bob Dylan.
