"I'll clip ya, Bergen... so help me, I'll mow you down!" Charlie cheerfully threatens, insults, and otherwise needles the elegant Edgar through 16 digitally remastered episodes - all of them from the 1950s, and seven of them never before available to the public. The aging, man-crazy mannequin Effie Clinker bends your ear (and her elbow); and modest Mortimer Snerd gives new meaning to the phrase "ventriloquist's dummy". Meanwhile, music and performing legends Rosemary Clooney, Fred MacMurray, Jo Stafford, Peggy Lee, Liberace, David Niven, and Gordon MacRae, bring their melodies and their mischief to the program. Of course, The Mellow Men are on hand, and even Bergen sings!
