Ted Baxter is a Villian

Everybody knows Ted Knight for his indelible role on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" as Ted Baxter, and as Judge Smails in "Caddyshack" (1980,) but most people don't know that before that, in the 60's...while he was starving as just another actor, he was paying the bills doing voice work for Filmation Studios.

Ted Knight was the JOKER on Filmation's "New Adventures of Batman" (1968)!! He was also the Riddler, Penguin, Commisioner Gordon and the announcer. (..who would always say, "..meanwhile, back in Gotham City!")

Knight did several voices for many Filmation titles such as, "Superfriends", "The Superman/Batman Hour", and was even Aquaman on..."Aquaman".
Knight's real name was Tadeus Wladyslaw Knopka.
