In 1981, Charles Rocket and producer Jean Doumanian were fired from Saturday Night Live, after Rocket dropped an "f-bomb" during a sketch.


His 1967 high school yearbook lists him as the class wit, voted the most talkative.


IMDb doesn't list the most recent of Charles Rocket's acting credits. His voice appears can be heard briefly during the first minute or so of the animated film Fly Me To the Moon, 2008. His name appears in the end credits as Charlie Rocket. He voiced the character credited as Mission Control 1961. After the title, "Cape Canaveral, 1961," appears onscreen, he says, "Weather looks good today. On schedule for liftoff. T minus 30 minutes and counting."


Since there was no mention of his voice role in Fly Me To the Moon (2008), I submitted Charlie's final acting credit to IMDb, and they added the Mission Control 1961 role. Yay!


For some reason, Charles Rocket's birthdate is frequently cited as August 24, 1949, but it's actually August 28, 1949.

Charles Rocket was an accomplished accordion player. He played on the 1982 B-52s EP Mesopotamia, which was produced by fellow RISD alum David Byrne.


Charles Rocket became an ordained minister. He performed the wedding of Nancy Sheppard and Joe Pantoliano in 1994.


Why the name Rocket? In People Magazine in 1981, Charles Rocket was quoted as saying, "Someone gave me the name during the space-age days of the '60s, and it stuck."
