NOTE: Some of the video clips above come from poor-quality reproductions on DVD or VHS.  Unfortunately, there have been no efforts to restore such classic TV episodes.  However, Tribute to Ventriloquism has decided to include such clips anyway so that viewers can see the extent and versatility of Winchell's great talent.  We are sorry that the quality cannot be better!
