My Favorite Ventriloquist Figures (and their "Offspring")

After seeing the blog post about the Bob Isaacson Charlie McCarthy that is now in the Ventriloquist Central Collection (click here to see that blog), John Robinson sent me this email with pictures of his favorite ventriloquist figures:

Hi Dan, really appreciated the recent blog and pics of your Charlie; I am also a great fan of Bergen/Charlie (notice in pics who occupies “center stage” of the big three). What a fabulous Charlie figure you have – maybe we should trade? :o)

Thought you might enjoy these pics of my favorite figures and their “offspring” ha. You’ll note that Mack sits alone; yea, he’s kinda the bigshot in our house.

Thanks again for your great website and the service you render to vents. God bless, John R. in VA P.S. hope your dear wife is getting used to Charlie watching TV with you guys





As you can tell, John has some nice ventriloquist figures. Thanks, John for sharing with us.
