Happy Days  was a variety/comedy hour that ran on CBS in 1970. The theme of the show was "radio days", and it was full of songs, sketches and stars of that of the 1930's and 40's era. 

 

The show was hosted by Louie Nye, and had a talented group of variety show singers, dancers and big bands - and featured Edgar Bergin & Charlie McCarthy, Bob & Ray and many others who got their start on radio.

 

Chuck was a regular in the cast and did many of the characters from his NY shows, as well as Laurel & Hardy sketches with Jim MacGeorge.

 

During the newspaper strike in NYC, Chuck would read the comics as their characters on his show "Lets Have Fun". These characters all became staples in his repertoire for a long time, as they were fan favorites!

 

On Happy Days, Chuck performed these characters again (Lone Ranger, Little Orphan Annie, Superman and Dick Tracy) as being interviewed.
