Radio/TV voiceover legend Gary Owens passed away on
Thursday (2/12) at his home in Encino, California reports
Variety. Owens was 80.
Owens, best known as the announcer on NBC’s Rowan and

than 3,000 cartoons, providing the voice of “Space Ghost”
as well as Blue Falcon, Roger Ramjet, Powdered Toast Man
and Batman. He was animated as himself in “Garfield and
Friends,” “The Fantastic Four,” “Eek the Cat” and “Bobby’s
World.” Owens came up with the term, "beautiful
downtown Burbank," which later became a nightly catch-
phrase on Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
