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 8:30 p.m. ET through the summer of 1950.
- The second series airing on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET consisted of filmed TV pilots of unsold series, and was a last-minute replacement for the quiz show Dotto, which ended August 12, 1958 due to accusations that it was rigged. Colgate Theatre served as a filler for the sponsor until The George Burns Show premiered on October 14, 1958. Bill Goodwin was host for the 1958 series.
