Chuck McCann (born September 2, 1934) is a film actor, television actor, stage actor, and a voice actor from Brooklyn, New York. McCann was a comedy giant to a generation of children who grew up watching his children's shows in the New York metropolitan area during the 1960s, having worked his way up to regional star status by apprenticing on a number of other children's shows like Captain Kangaroo and Rootie Kazootie (the show on which he met his one-time puppeteer and sidekick, Paul Ashley). On Palm Sunday, 1965, Chuck McCann's cousins were telling their friends that their cousin was Chuck McCann. They didn't believe them so their mother called him and told him that people were calling her children mean things about 'lying'. Chuck McCann said immediately to come over. They did and were put on his show, showing McCann's good character and family relations. To around 1967, the tall, portly, moon-faced McCann hosted comedy/variety TV puppet shows in the New York area. McCann (with Ashley) did The Puppet Hotel for WNTA-TV, Channel 13; then Laurel & Hardy & Chuck, Let's Have Fun and The Chuck McCann Show for WPIX, Channel 11; and finally, The Chuck McCann Show, The Great Bombo's Magic
