Throwback Thursday Geritol and Red Skelton

Geritol and Red Skelton!

This is from The Red Skelton Show – February 1954

Watch the Geritol commercial…then the Show.

Remember “Geritol”?  A fix-all tonic widely advertised on TV and radio.

Then and Now Photos of Geritol!  I guess it is still around in some form.

    My grandfather was Matty Rosenhaus. He owned Pharmaceuticals Inc., later- the J.B. Williams Company.. They were the manufacturers of Geritol.

    Geritol, in case you don’t know- was no more than ethyl alcohol, caramel coloring and flavorings.
    My mom used to give me Geritol Jr. with my vitamins in the morning.
    It had something like 12% alcohol.
    Regular Geritol was no more than cheap whiskey!
