You Know The Voice: Gary Owens on the Gong Show (1976)

In addition to voicing the Blue Falcon, Dynomutt's owner-partner, Gary Owens returned to on-camera work in 1976, hired by Chuck Barris to host the nighttime version of Barris' monster hit, The Gong Show. Owens lasted just 1 year on Gong before Barris dismissed him in favor of taking over the show himself, adding to his duties as host-producer on the daytime edition, airing on NBC.

A more comprehensive review appears on my other blog, The Land of Whatever. Now, scope a promo for the 1st nighttime Gong, which has Gary recalling his Laugh-In days........
