When I was purchasing Charlie from Bob Isaacson,
I asked him about Mortimer and he told me that he did like the idea
of Mortimer coming to the Ventriloquist Central Collection but one
of his sons really loved Mortimer and wanted to have him. I had no
argument which I could give to Bob to change his mind because family
ALWAYS comes first. I did tell Bob to let his son know that if at
any time he wanted to part with Mort, I was his buyer.
Bob thought about this for a few months and then one day while we
were chatting he told me that he decided that this wood carved
Mortimer did belong with the Charlie and so Mort was going to come
to the Ventriloquist Central Collection. Bob decided to build
another Mortimer for his son which his son agreed to knowing the
original was coming here.
Well Mr Isaacson worked diligently at creating another figure of
Mort for his son and then let me know the original Mortimer was
ready to come to his new place of abode.
So it is with great pleasure that I now show you the fantastic, wood
carved, Mortimer Snerd figure which Bob used in the performances he
did at the Museum of Radio Broadcasting in Chicago.
