Charlie the Cuckoo Clock Bird - Wisecracking raven with a quip for any situation featured on the sitcom THE MUNSTERS/CBS/1964-66

Charlie the Raven - THE MUNSTERS

Raven lives in the cuckoo clock in the Munsters' living room. When he popped out he cried, "Nevermore, nevermore!" a refrain inspired by a mysterious raven in the classic Edgar Allen Poe poem "The Raven."

Both Mel Blanc (and later Bob Hastings) supplied the raven's voice which resembled the wisecracking parrot used on THE JACK BENNY SHOW (voiced by Mel Blanc for many years). The parrot often cried "Raaaahh! Benny's a cheapskate. Benny's a cheapskate! Raaahh!"
