TBS has announced that it will run ten Seinfeld episodes featuring George Steinbrenner (played by Lee Bear and voiced by Larry David). This was one of the show’s best seasons, featuring George Costanza being the Traveling Secretary for the New York Yankees and him preparing for his wedding to Susan Biddle Ross. The recurring appearances of the fictional George Steinbrenner were extremely funny and I’m happy to see TBS re-airing these episodes.
