His ability to remember his favorite programs verbatim and impersonate the voices of his favorite characters made Mike very popular with his classmates, if not his teachers. Once told by a grade school principal that "no one ever made a career out of watching television," Mike Toomey set out to prove the principal wrong. He continues to this day on his lifelong mission to prove her wrong. To make a career out of watching TV...to boldly go where no man has gone before!
