Once described as the Artemus Gordon of voice actors, Michael Bell has enjoyed a prolific career in film and TV animation that has spanned more than four decades. Michael’s career as a voice actor began in the early 1970s, providing voices for The Houndcats, Speed Buggy, The Saturday Superstar Movie, and other Saturday morning cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera. He was also the voice of Plastic Man and Baby Plas on The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show; Zan and Gleek on SuperFriends; the Riddler on Challenge of the SuperFriends; and a host of other characters on such shows as The Smurfs, The Transformers, The Transformers: The Movie, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, G.I. Joe: The Movie, and Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
If you’re not a connoisseur of animation, you’ll probably recognize Michael as the voice of the Parkay tub “(“Butter!”) on the Parkay margarine commercials. He also has a long list on-screen acting credits, including a recurring role as Les Crowley, Bobby Ewing’s banker on Dallas, plus appearances on The Rockford Files, The FBI, Ironside, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and other popular shows. Michael Bell will join us in our second hour.
Also this week: With the holidays upon us, we will play Part 2 of Greg Ehrbar’s interview with singer, director, and teacher Roberta Levitow, co-founder of Theatre Without Borders. Roberta’s father, Abe Levitow, directed Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol (NBC, 1962); Roberta’s album, Lost in the Stars, features Roberta’s renditions of songs from some of the animated musicals that her father directed, including Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol. Roberta Levitow will join us in our first hour.
This week’s program will also include tributes to some of the many TV icons who have passed away in recent weeks, including Shelley Morrison, Caroll Spinney, and Perry Mason producer/director Arthur Marks. Plus: We’ll tell you about an important two-day event coming up in San Francisco concerning innovations in healthcare that we’d like to bring to your attention.
