Useless Clippy quirk

This weekend I had a chance to see Hollywood Squares (sans Paul Lynde) on The Game Show Network. At the end of the show, contestants answer a series of quick true or false statements about participating celebrities. Gilbert Gottfried was one of the squares and his question had to do with .... Microsoft Office's Clippy. Did you know that he was the voice of Clippy? Quite honestly, I did not recall Clippy having a voice, but found this on the Internet Movie Database:
"When Microsoft came out with XP and decided to discontinue Clippy, the paperclip office assistant, they did a series of online clips about Clippy's reaction to this. Gilbert provided Clippy's voice." (IMB, Biography for Gilbert Gottfried)
The things you learn.
