Arthur Treacher"Look sharp now, here's the dear boy himself, MERR-V-I-N!" - A typical opening on THE MERV GRIFFIN SHOW/CBS/1962-72/SYN/1972-86 as announced by the delightful yet droll Arthur Treacher.

Merv's British sidekick worked as the show's announcer until his death on December 14, 1975. Afterwards, Merv worked solo.

Arthur Treacher is also remembered for his role as the English valet Jeeves in  the films Thank You, Jeeves (1935) and Step Lively, Jeeves (1936) based on the P.G. Wodehouse's character; a memorable tap dance number with Shirley Temple in the 1935 film Curly Top; and a fish and chips fast food restaurant popular in the 1970s which bears his name.
