“Who Is It” by Carlton the Doorman


Carlton the Doorman from Rhoda is one of the great unseen TV characters. Although we did hear him in almost every episode—and he sounded a heck of a lot like Garfield (both were voiced by Lorenzo Music, of course). The character was so popular that in 1975, this novelty single featuring Music, in character as Carlton the Doorman was released.
