Episode Summary

EDIT
5/15/1956
AIRED:

The Milton Berle Show This color telecast from California features guests Mickey Rooney and Peggy King.
Miltie's psychiatrist suggests he hire an understudy to relieve the pressure of carrying the show alone. Mickey Rooney takes the job, sending Miltie back to the doctor because Rooney's too good. Berle and King star in a production number saluting New York; Rooney has a tiny part, but weasels his way into the lead. Peggy sings "I Could Have Danced All Night." Rooney steals the scene in a dramatic boxing sketch; Berle recasts it so that he plays the boxer himself.
