The Harlem Globetrotters on What’s My Line (1956)

The Globetrotter lineup in when this aired on December 30, 1956 was impressive (when is it not). You had Andy Johnson, Roman Turman, Charles Hoxie, Clarence Wilson, Woody Sauldsberry, Carl Green, Leon Hillard, Willie Garner and of course the esteemed Meadowlark Lemon. It is very cool to see this lineup on TV back in the 1950s and very interesting to see how they handle a squad with the standard What’s My Line format.

The real bonus comes out the end when Hillard, fully attired demonstrates his amazing dribbling ability.
