Happy birthday and R.I.P. Jack Mercer.

I loved his work as the Professor, he made him so hilarious and FRUSTRATED, FRUSTRATED, FRUSTRATED, FRUSTRATED, FRUSTRATEEEEED! And although I'm not too big on the high pitched Mickey Mouse-styled voice for Felix the Cat, he did that well and really proved that he had a lot of range.

Happy birthday and RIP Jack Mercer!!!

He was just awesome as Popeye, always sounding like an adventurous sailor while also ad-libbing under-the-breath mutterings like a boss.

He was also great as Wimpy, Popeye's nephews and I also liked his roles in the Superman shorts

You listen to the very early Popeye shorts, he's definitely improvising - which explains why Popeye's mouth doesn't move all the time when he speaks.

And Mercer improvised things that wouldn't get by the censors now - "Think I'd make a good model? Take me home for a dollar ninety-eight!"

It's interesting how the first ever Superman villain (Mad Scientist 1) is voiced by the same voice actor for Popeye!
