He was also heard in shows such as The Smurfs, Pac-Man, DuckTales, Tom and Jerry Kids, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures and Justice League Unlimited.

It should be pointed out that Johnson reprised his Laugh-In role of Tyrone (with Ruth Buzzi reprising her role of Gladys) in the late 1970s animated series Baggy Pants and the Nitwits, where Tyrone and Gladys inexplicably wound up getting superpowers (and Tyrone having the ability to fly with his cane) and fighting criminals.
Arte's DFE career goes all the way back to The Super Six, well before Laugh-In. RIP.

While Spiderman Into The SpiderVerse made a significant profit, and is not a financial flop by any means, it's also the lowest grossing Spiderman movie.
