1 Response to Beck, Jackson


I liked Jackson Beck whenever he used his satanic, menacing "Bluto" voice in some episodes. Beck did the voice of Popeye's nemesis in Popeye cartoons that were released to theaters from 1943-1957. He also did the voice of Brutus in the syndicated TV Popeyes that were originally broadcast from 1959-1962.
