Here a little story, I'd like to tell, about three...er, where was I?

Matt and Trey wanted to use the actual narrator from the original "Superfriends" series for last night's episode (#504 "The Super Best Friends"), but that person turned out to be Ted Knight (of "Mary Tyler Moore," "Caddy Shack" and "Too Close For Comfort" fame), who passed away several years ago.

I still can't believe the narrator ("Meanwhile, at the...") was Mr. "Cosmic Cow" Rush, but Knight apparently did a fair amount of voice-over work in the late 70's/early 80's. A lot of people on staff were surprised by that little piece of information. They usually know all kinds of random stuff like that.
