Michael Ansara is probably the first person ever to be inducted into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame as two different characters in the same year.  (Adam West being inducted as both his live-action and cartoon self doesn't count.)

There would have been a third, but I decided to hold back on the choice

For December, I decided his vocal interpretation of the 'Batman' villain Mr. Freeze seemed an appropriate choice for the first of the wintry months.  (It's not the first time a Batman villain has been inducted into the Hall in December.  The Penguin became a member in December of 2005.)

Other actors have played the role for the Tooniverse, and they are also counted among his credits for entry into the TVXOHOF.  But it's Mr. Freeze as played by Ansara who will be the official voice of the character for the Tooniverse.

So here are the credits for Mr. Freeze, as voiced by Michael Ansara:
  • "Sub-Zero"
  • "Batman Beyond: The Movie"
  • 'Batman Beyond'
  • 'The New Batman Adventures'
  • 'Batman'
  • 'The Batman/Superman Hour'
And here are the other credits which qualify him for entry:
  • 'Batman: The Brave And The Bold'
  • 'Young Justice'
  • 'The Batman'
  • 'Tarzan And The Super 7'
  • 'The New Adventures Of Batman'
  • 'The Batman/Superman Hour'

So in honor of the late Michael Ansara, we welcome Mr. Freeze into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.
