Part Two deals with Conried's return to the United States following the war, the birth of his first child, the decline of radio and his first television performances, and his involvement with such productions as The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T, The Twonky, Peter Pan, Can-Can, and numerous others. Part Three details his work with Jack Paar (as a television personality on the early Tonight Show), his summer stock theater work, his guest spots on various programs and his work providing voices for cartoon characters.
