The first Apollo moon landing was not televised live. Instead a seventeen

It has long been rumoured that the voice of Neil Armstrong was replaced
by the voice of an actor — possibly Mel Blanc. What did Astronaut
Armstrong say and why was it necessary to suppress his words?
When I was five my parents gave me a puppy. I grew up with it and was
very sad when he suddenly died the day after my eleventh birthday. I was
sure it was because I fed him too much cake. So I dedicate these first
small steps to Sparky. I am sure that I can look down to earth and pinpoint
the exact spot of his grave, somewhere in our backyard. I can imagine
Sparky up here now, in a little doggy space suit and I wish we had brought
along a frisbee.
