Carroll's performance in The Little Mermaid made Ursula the Sea Witch one of the great Disney villains.

She had a few Broadway credits, but her big theater successes were an off-Broadway one-woman show in which she played Gertrude Stein, and appearances at the Folger Shakespeare in Washington DC; among her roles there was Falstaff.
She was on the first season, but It doesn't look like she was on the first episode of Pyramid-

Of course, her most well-known role of all is Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid.

You can have Jordan and LeBron, I'll take Bill Russell as the greatest basketball player ever.

No argument here. When asked what he thought of the Bulls' three-peat, he said "not much".

That reminds me of when Uday and Qusay Hussein were killed; The Daily Show report on the strike had an onscreen graphic with the heading "The Smothered Brothers." (Sorry for off-topic post)

Vin Scully age 94

When the weather was clear I used to be able to listen to Vin Scully call night games on radio out of a Nevada feed. He was great on TV and amazing on radio.

Although I lived in L.A. for sixteen years, I was never a Dodgers fan. But Vin Scully was the best I ever heard call a game.

I'll bet you didn't know Vin Scully hosted a daytime variety show on CBS in 1973. They pulled the plug after 7 weeks and replaced him with $10000 Pyramid. That was the same year Alex Trebek made his 🇺🇸 debut hosting The Wizard of Odds on NBC.

Earlier, Vin hosted a game show called It Takes Two.

Coincidentally, Vin's broadcast partner when he broadcast NBC's MLB Game of the Week from 1983-88, Joe Garagiola, also had quite a good game show resume (Vin would be partnered with Tom Seaver in his last season, 1989).

Vin and Joe, who had such awesome chemistry together, are together again.
