Red Skelton

King Putt has his hands full when he meets Cleopatra. She thinks he's rich and he thinks she's rich but both don't even have a piece of mummy cloth between them.

Sketch from the popular "Red Skelton Show", an American variety show that was a television staple for almost two decades, from the early 1950s through the early 1970s. Skelton opened with a monologue and this was often followed by a guest-star performance by a singer in combination with comedy sketches. These were usually built around one of Red's many regular characters. See also the sketch "Of Mouth and Men" from 1963.
