Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy's First TV Special

Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy were major stars on radio and in films so naturally 'they' turned their attention to television in the 1950s. While they remained popular guest stars on other performer's shows until the end, Bergen's attempts at a weekly television series never really caught on.

Now watch the opening of the first Edgar Bergen TV Special.
