It's worth noting that his Control Voice from The Outer Limits is the inspiration for Corey Burton's Brainiac.

@Autovolt Actually Corey Burton's Brainiac voice was intended to be an Emulation of Douglas Rain's HAL 9000 Voice.

Happy birthday and RIP Vic Perrin!!!

I really loved his guest roles in the Gunsmoke radio show as well as in the CBS Radio Workshop.

My favorite animation role from him is the Silver Surfer. His voice was perfect for the Herald of Galactus, making him sound loyal to his master, yet also adding a lot of nobility and warmth. Honestly, whenever I read the old Galactus trilogy, I imagine Vic as the Surfer.

I also enjoyed him as the Control Voice from the Outer Limits, the Red Ghost, Professor Gamma, Hawkman, Thor and he was a pretty solid first voice for Sinestro in the earlier episodes of Challenge of the SuperFriends.
