My dumbest question ever.
On the same SNL show in '86 when Shatner did the famous “Get A Life” Trekkie skit, he also did a T. J. Hooker skit revolving around the fact that Hooker was always jumping onto the hoods of cars and holding on while the villains did u-turns, etc. to throw him off. In the skit, he rode on the hood of the car forever, going through sunny weather, rain, snow, day and night, etc. He even pulled out a notebook and wrote his parents a letter, and Shatner did a (pre-taped) voice-over as he wrote. He “signed” it: “Your loving son, Toby.”
So was his first name on the show “Toby”?
Thanks for not laughing too hard, and for not telling me to get a life. I know that, already.
