Music, Comedy 1940s
Pull those monkeys out and squeeze in with the rest of us, because Barrel of Fun really lives up to its name! This music and comedy show stars Charlie Ruggles, the versatile comedian who quips such smart smacks as, "I'll never forget when we had to put down a native uprising. Some trader fed them yeast". Ruggles is known for his rubber face and even more stretchable voice, playing infants to old men with slick ease. Years after Barrel of Fun became a fantastic hit, Ruggles' voice was heard on Rocky and Bullwinkle. He also played Mrs. Drysdale's father on The Beverly Hillbillies. So dig the mums out of your barrel planters to make room for Mr. Ruggles, because this is one hilarious show!
