Wooden people who were stars.

Charley was the wooden ventriloquists dummy on the radio no less. Charlie McCarthy and his human partner Edgar Bergen (father of Candice) were a hit for many years. I always thought the insult throwing wooden person was about as funny as they got.

Doody was a wooden star of another era. Howdy was his first name and he was a star in the era of early television. He and his human partners Buffalo Bob and Clarabelle the clown held sway over a stable of other wooden friends including Mr Bluster and the lovable but stupid Dilly Dally. I should also mention Princess Summerfall Winterspring just because of her all seasons name.
