I Am The Greatest! (1977) – RIP Ali

In honor of the late, great Muhammad Ali, today’s featured short-lived series is I Am the Greatest!: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali. This cartoon ran Saturday mornings on NBC in the fall of 1977 but only lasted for 13 episodes.
Ali did his own voice work for the series and can be heard saying many of his famous lines.

I didn’t even know this cartoon existed until today. I was wondering if he ever had a TV show of his own of some sort and, sure enough, I came across this.

Here’s the opening:

Sad to see another legend go.
