Either Crazy Guggenheim, or less likely, Freddie the Freeloader.
Red Skelton characters, the both. Comedy for the ages.
Whether I'm right or wrong in my supposition about the image matters not. It only matters that it evoked those recollections, and piqued my curiosity as to his having donned that image.

Ah Mel, stay away from the Crazy Russian broads. They'll do their wicked female wiles on you quicker than liquor.

Crazy Guggenheim +1!

Crazy Guggenheim was a character on the old Jackie Gleason show, in the Joe the Bartender skits. Jackie was the Bartender. Frank Fontaine portrayed Crazy Guggenheim.
