I am the Randy in this Teleplay
16 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My uncle is the writer of the show, Sidney Michaels. Evidently when I was little, I did indeed have an imaginary friend by the name of Tippy Top. I don't remember "Tippy" unfortunately, but do remember when the show was being filmed with Red Buttons and Ron(nie) Howard playing me. I remember Frank Aletter played Bob, my father. We were staying with my uncle in LA that summer and he would talk about the day's shoot and how amazing it was to work with Ron Howard, and how he captured the spirit of having the "friend" that I once had.

Then to see the show on GE Theater later on, and see the listing in TV Guide... that was a wow of unforgettable proportions.

Today I get pleasure in saying that Ron Howard played me, and that a future president was the host who introduced my imaginary friend to the world way back when.
