The Magic of Art Metrano

In my interview with legendary actress Francine York we discussed The Chicago Teddy Bears (she guest starred on an episode) and how fun it was to work with Art Metrano.

Metrano is best known as Cmdt. Mauser in Police Academy 2 and Police Academy 3 but his 1971 sitcom was a real hoot, taking place in the prohibition era starring Disney leading man Dean Jones and John Banner (Hogan's Heroes). It lasted only 13 weeks.

Art Metrano had a killer comedy act that he performed on late night shows that plenty of other comics stole. You'll recognize the tune he's humming, now you know where THAT came from!
