One episode took place on a nuclear submarine and the producer wanted the sound of a sub humming in the background. Sound effects editor Robert V. Greene called the Navy who told him that nuclear submarines don't make any noise. Undeterred, he placed a microphone inside an old IBM electric typewriter and recorded the "whir and clicks" it made. The next day the producers loved it and asked where he got it. He told them that some Navy guys in San Diego had sent him a tape. See more »
Muahmmad Ali is certainly the most well known athlete of the twentieth century and the most popular boxer of all time. This show came on the air when he was still champion before he lost his crown to Leon Spinks. Ali was probably the first athlete to have a cartoon series and he provided his own voice. He was a wonderful cartoon hero, solving mysteries and saving people. Ali was so wonderful with children. He was a good role model for them. He didn't go around raping beauty pagent contestants and biting his opponents ears! I remember at the end of every episode they would have a tape of the real Ali talking to kids and teaching them a lesson for the week. It would be sad watching this show again today and contrasting it with how sick he is.
