RE: (TV) Prof. Turtle & "Yonki Time"?

(I actually think I saw him referenced in another article as well, but I'll have to double check).

That last piece of info from you is particularly impressive to me------I'd go so far to say you're quite the detective!
I'll give my store-bought copy of "This Case is Closed" a listen tonight----I hardly ever listen to, it because of the lousy sound/recording quality (at least on my copy).
