Notes

Not to be confused with the animator of the same name who worked on "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist".

"During Mr. Snyder's recent appearance on 'Late Show,' Mr. Letterman reminisced fondly about watching 'Tomorrow' after leaving his weatherman job in Indianapolis each night."

"'I'd come home, turn on the TV, and suddenly NBC has this wonderful new show,' he said to Mr. Snyder. 'It was you sitting low in your chair, darkly lit, smoke rolling out of your nose. The image and feeling of intimacy was overwhelming."--From "Tom Snyder Reconsidered: Everyman at 57" by Andy Meisler, THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 8, 1994.

"By the beginning of 1982, 'Tomorrow' was canceled, and within a year or two what most Americans generally remembered most about Mr. Snyder was the needle-sharp impression of him Dan Aykroyd had been doing for years on 'Saturday Night Live'"

"'I was flattered,' says Mr. Snyder of that impersonation. 'It wasn't a spiteful parody at all. And it was hilarious. What Aykroyd did was very loving. What I did mind was later, when Joe Piscopo did me. Piscopo did me. Piscopo showed me as a failed broadcaster living in a skid row hotel, interviewing the doorman as a guest on my television show. That to me was hurtful, I did better than that.'"--From "Tom Snyder Reconsidered: Everyman at 57" by Andy Meisler, THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 8, 1994.
