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:
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.
