Ted Knight (b. December 7, 1923 - d. August 26, 1986) was an actor known for his distinctive voice. He narrated a number of shows including Aquaman, The Adventures of Batman, and Super Friends.

He also voiced a number of characters including Commissioner Gordon, Penguin, Mister Freeze, Scarecrow, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and Simon the Pieman for the animated series The Adventures of Batman and Flash for the animated series Super Friends.

Whiled working at Filmation he shared the role of Perry White with Jackson Beck. Beck was credited with voicing the character from 1966 through early 1968 with Knight apparently taking over the role for the Superman segments produced for late 1968. Available sources are unclear if this was the case and if Knight covered for Back for some of the earlier episodes.[1][2][3][4]
