At the end of "720 Bunifa: Making It Through Customs", the logo with the sunset and trees w/the words "News At 6" (same one from beginning of #402). Andrew Daly is reporting. Here's the transcript:

Announcer: This is a FOX News Special Report

Andrew Daly: Good Evening. The Los Angeles airport was shut down today after a woman wielding a sword attempted to board a plane. Attorney Johnny Cochran is said to be looking into the incident and plans to file charges against the airline later today. More on this at eleven.

Along w/adding this info to the thread can someone also post a pic of the logo?

MysterE, can you (or anyone else) tell me if the sketch summary is accurate? I've only seen that one once, and it was a really long time ago

This doesn't make sense to me. It wasn't a "News at 6" sketch because none of the original characters were in it. Where I come from, the news is on at 6 O'Clock, and is often called "News at Six" or "The Six O'Clock News". Either way, it doesn't belong in the character thread even if you want to acknowledge it in some way.

Here's another one I found then...

629 Crackhouse Eyewitness (Andrew- Carl Thunderstand, Aries- Walter, Mo- Amber)

Again, in the beginning of the sketch, the words "NEWS AT 6" appear in the red and white blocks just as they do in the new picture above, but w/o the sunset background w/the trees this time.

Because of the aforesaid and because 720 had this (from #402 and others) same exact picture at the beginning, I'm adding Andrew as "Carl Thunderstand" (verified spelling from 629) as a recurring character. I really think we should put it under the current News at 6 multicharacter, but I'll let you guys decide.

Does your Six O'Clock News have that same exact picture TOO Kurt? I thought I was the only one.

Also, the 2nd News at 6 sketch was actually the Swan #2 sketch from 304.

Anybody else notice that the voice that Alex did for her character in this is the same one she uses for Asian report Trisha Takanowa on Family Guy!
