William "Billy" Costello (February 2, 1898 – October 9, 1971), a.k.a. "Red Pepper Sam", was an American live and voice actor, and the original voice of Popeye the Sailor in animated cartoons.
Costello had worked with the Fleischer Studio as the voice of Gus the Gorilla on the Betty Boop radio show and they felt that the raspy voice he had used for that character would work for the new Popeye character they were planning. He was cast to provide the voice for the first Popeye cartoon, 1933's Popeye the Sailor. Costello appeared in the next 24 Popeye shorts until he was fired by the Fleischers, allegedly over "bad behavior," and was replaced with Jack Mercer. Costello's final appearance was in You Gotta Be A Football Hero (1935).
Costello died in San Jose, California, on October 9, 1971. He was buried in Mariposa, California

"Bad behavior" sounds more like a glowing character reference for Popeye actor, but who knows.

pss: I'd love to know more about this "bad behavior". There is a moment in one of those original 25 Popeyes, when Popeye and Bluto get into one of those fights where they disappear into a cloud of dust with random arms and legs popping out flailing, w/ lots of percussive sound effects and the two voice actors ad-libbing, when you can clearly hear Costello as Popeye calling Bluto "son of a bitch" if you know when to listen. Costello was apparently a Belushi-ish character in his day

They want you to join the club to access those archives, I think among other things it helps get them around copyright issues if their "service" is for members of their non-profit "historical" society

I do not, would have mentioned it in my post. I have a freind in LA who VCR'd it right off the air from a local station, he turned me on to it, so I have heard it myself, it's not hearsay

Happy to NOT be hearing about football. Hooray for lunk-head rock'n'roll!

(Maybe?) worth noting also that the voice of Jack Mercer (Costello's replacement as Popeye) is all over the Fleischers' "Gulliver" animated feature and their Superman cartoons, so Costello blew a lot of potential work with his "bad behavior"

The best way to die is to sit under a tree, eats lots of bologna and salami, drink a case of beer and blow up.
