In an interview with host Mr. Frank Hope, he was delighted to know that both Underdog and Ms. Muldowney were receiving the attention and recognition they so rightly deserve. Quote Mr. Hope "We first got to know of Suzanne from her appearances at the at the Creation Science Fiction Conventions and have long since considered her to be one of the finest performers In the Beyond Vaudeville family. Her dedication and her professionalism is unparalleled."
Mr. Hope was also kind enough to share all of Ms. Muldowney's T. V. appearances with us (including her appearances on the live shows). Thanks Frank!
