Randall and the Sidekicks

April 2, 2018

Thanks to Randall Munson for adopting two iconic dummies at last year's convention: Mortimer Snerd and Knucklehead Smiff. Both of these dummies are nonworking replicas of the dummies used by Edgar Bergen and Paul Winchell, respectively.

 

Although Charlie McCarthy was Edgar Bergen's primary character, Mortimer Snerd's sweet bumpkin personality won him his own fan base.  Snerd was in several of Bergen's films, including Stage Door Canteen and Fun and Fancy Free.  One of the performances that shows the sweet simplicity and charm of Mortimer's character is from The Tonight Show in 1977, which you can see here.
