The CB Bears were Hustle (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating Phil Silvers), Boogie (voiced by Chuck McCann) and Bump (voiced by Henry Corden). The trio were detectives disguised as trash collectors and travelled around in a garbage truck.

A sultry-voiced female named Charlie (voiced by Susan Davis) contacted the bears on the truck’s CB radio to give them their assignments. The show was inspired by the hit series Charlie’s Angels. Bump even had a blonde hairstyle similar to Farrah Fawcett.
