Colgate Theatre is a 30-minute dramatic television anthology series telecast on NBC during 1949 and 1958 for a total of 50 episodes in two different formats.

  • The first edition, a live television anthology, was telecast on Sunday nights at 8:30pm ET through the summer of 1950.
  • The second series airing on Tuesdays at 9:30pm ET consisted of filmed TV pilots of unsold series, and was a last-minute replacement for the game series Dotto, which ended during August 1958, due to accusations that it was rigged. This latter program served as a filler for the sponsor until The George Burns Show premiered on October 14, 1958.
