Now THIS is how you entertain folks (Grandpa Jones clip)

I stumbled across this clip from 1961 while I was searching for something totally unrelated. I only know Grandpa Jones from vague memories of Hee Haw, but this performance struck me as very entertaining:

That Good Old Mountain Dew

Okay, that wins “Most Energetic Thing by a Person named ‘Grandpa’.”

I think he was about 48 years old in 1961.
But he was just as lively 30 years later.

That totally fucking rocked!

I couldn’t stop smiling the whole way through–that was really fun!

Thanks, I have always loved Granpa Jones.


Louis Jones started using the Grandpa persona when he was still in his twenties.
