From Marty to McHale to… Mermaidman. Ernie Borgnine was one of my favorite actors, whether playing super-hero or super-villain.

Borgnine died today at age 95 in Los Angeles. In addition to his semi-regular role on Spongebob Squarepants, in animation Borgnine lent his unique vocal talents to characters in All Dogs Go To Heaven (#2 and the TV series), Pinky and The Brain, The Simpsons (as himself), and in Joe Dante’s Small Soldiers. He made so many people happy with his many many on-camera performances. He was one of the best. Rest In Peace, sir.
