RARE Effanbee Charlie McCarthy Label

eddie bergen


I have been an avid collector of the Effanbee Charlie McCarthy dolls and have a wide selection of them. They came in a white box with a label on one end.

To find one in the original box is rather hard and the label usually reads Edgar Bergen’s Charlie McCarthy but when they were first released they did in fact make a printing error and marked them Eddie Bergen’s Charlie McCarthy.

It was caught very quickly and corrected but I thought you would like to see that error.



Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com
