Morgan White (July 25, 1924 – September 2, 2010)[1] was an American actor.

Best known to a generation of Hawaii viewers as "Pogo Poge" in the locally-produced Checkers & Pogo show, White also wrote and produced several episodes of the show. Checkers & Pogo, which ran from 1967 to 1982 and produced by KGMB/Honolulu, is considered the longest-running, most successful children's show in Hawaii. White was the only original member of the series, outlasting the three actors who played Checkers during its run.[2]

In addition to the Checkers & Pogo show, White had a minor role as the attorney general in six Hawaii Five-O episodes. In addition to his television career, White was also a popular radio DJ in Denver prior to being hired by KGMB.[2]

After the show ended, White retired to farm in Sevier, Utah. He died in Utah at the age of 86 on September 2, 2010.[2]
