Burgess Meredith was the actor behind Penguin in 20 episodes of the Classic TV Series, more appearances than any other guest villain. Penguin was also the leader of the villains in the movie.

A non-smoker for several years at the time played the Penguin, the character's trademark smoking often caused Meredith to cough, so he developed the Penguin's distinctive "quack" sound to keep from ruining takes.

Later WorkEdit

Meredith later gained fame as "Mickey", the gravely voiced trainer in the Rocky movies.
