I Am the Greatest: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali

El Rey Network will pay tribute to the legendary heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali on Wednesday, June 8 beginning at 10:00pm ET with a marathon of all 13 half-hour episodes of the 1977 animated series I Am the Greatest: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali only on El Rey Network. I Am the Greatest: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali aired on Saturday mornings on NBC in 1977 with voices provided by Ali and his real life publicist Frank Bannister. The series featured The Champ and Bannister traveling around the country fighting crime and solving mysteries – both real and supernatural. This will be the first time the series has been seen ever on cable and perhaps the first time in the U.S. since its 1977 original airings on NBC.
