FAQ: Ernest T / Howard Morris

Ernest T Bass (Howard Morris) must do cartoon voices because I sure thought I heard him talking on some cartoon I was flipping past. I forget what cartoon it was, but it was that his voice?

He's done lots and lots of characters' voices of the years, including the McDonald's Hamburglar, Wade the Duck (from Garfield and Friends), the Quantas Airlines koala, and Gopher (in the early Winnie the Pooh films.) He's also done voices of minor characters and many Hanna-Barbera cartoons like the Flintstones, Beetle Bailey and many others. --Paul Mulik

There was a little trivial triviality that was a blooper in the episode "Family Visit" dialogue by Andy, do you know what it was?

In the middle of the episode, the radio announcer (voice over by Howard Morris, BTW) declares that three prisoners have escaped. Later, Andy gets a call informing him that "both of them" had been caught. --Paul Mulik
