Wednesday Trivia Question

What actor/comedian voiced the character of Digit LeBoid on Cyberchase?

The PBS Kids series Cyberchase follows three Earth kids (Inez, Jackie and Matt) as they fight the evil Hacker in Cyberspace. Digit is a cybird who works for Motherboard, the ruler of Cyberspace, and who helps the Earthlies protect the digital realm. But who provides the voice of Digit?

It was Gilbert Gottfried, a man who’s not a stranger to voicing animated birds (he was Iago in Disney’s Aladdin). I didn’t think someone like Gottfried would have had much of a presence elsewhere on public broadcasting but I found a 2008 appearance on Sesame Street (as Denny the Distractor) and a couple of voices on Adventures From The Book Of Virtues.
