I was at Dollar Tree the other day and found a vhs video called, "The Best of the Ed Sullivan Show - Ed's Outrageous Moments".

I was pleased to find a segment of Al Flosso doing the Miser's Dream with Ed playing the part of the boy. I had never seen that particular clip before.

In addition, there were several other very fun acts, including a really cool performance by some contortionists, incorporating "The Lean". There were also a couple of spoof magic/mentalism bits, too.

The video was produced by Goodtimes Entertainment, but I believe they have gone out of business (or changed their name). I could not locate them.

Nice find for a buck!

Ah, Michael, some guys have all the luck!

I did find some information about GoodTimes Entertainment, click HERE to view. It's not clear whether they're still in business.

If my memory serves me right, they issued a number of the Our Gang/Little Rascals comedies on DVD, and also had a colorized (but pretty good) version of the 1934 feature film, "Babes in Toyland," with Laurel and Hardy. SETH

Hi Seth,

Thanks for finding that info. I think there was a second copy of the video at the store, so I may go by there tomorrow and see.

Thanks for the lead Michael, I'll try to find that video. Flosso is one of my all time favorites, loved his style.
