Milton Berle (born Milton Berlinger, July 12, 1908 – March 27, 2002) was an American comedian and actor. As the host of NBC's Texaco Star Theater (1948–55), he was the first major American television star and was known to millions of viewers as "Uncle Miltie" and "Mr. Television" during TV's golden age.
Milton Berle was inducted into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame in May of 2003, as that year's "May Queen" (because of his willingness to dress in drag).
