Mini Tribute: Voice Actor Jack Mercer

Born January 13, 1910 Voice Actor Jack Mercer!

Jack Mercer began his career as an ‘inbetweener’ (apprentice animator) at Fleischer Studios. Soon afterwards he was ‘discovered’ by Fleischer, and most famously became the voice of Popeye the Sailor and Felix the Cat. Mercer also voiced the roles of Wimpy and Poopdeck Pappy (from Popeye) and The Professor and Genie (from Felix the Cat). Mercer also wrote scripts for many cartoons and cartoon series including The Deputy Dawg Show.
