More televisual anniversary celebrations!

Twenty years ago yesterday, Slappy Squirrel was introduced to America as "the crankiest of creatures in the whole wide world". The next day, however, another contender entered the race: Marty Crane! That's right, today marks the twentieth anniversary of the d├ębut of another excellent television programme, Frasier! This day twenty years ago, a Thursday, NBC donated an extra minute of airtime to their new programme, a decidedly generous move to help the teams at Grub Street and Paramount avoid a last-minute rewrite!

There'll be no drawing today, but my mind's eye is currently trying to show me Slappy Squirrel in Marty Crane's chair, something which I might commit to paper by Friday...
