c19300's Charlie McCarthy clockwork 8" toy that wobbles from side to side and his mouth moves up and down. He was the creation of Edgar Bergen.
Bergen developed a skill for ventriloquism as a child and created Charlie while in school. Back in the early 1930's Bergen toured the nightclubs. Edgar Bergen and McCarthy made their radio debut in 1936 and were a success. He was given his own show which was one of radios highest rated shows, this continued until the final show in 1956. There is play wear and scratches but he is great.
