Popeye Theater with Mister Mac

The Popeye Theater with Mister Mac was a local children's television show that aired on Cleveland's WKYC-TV from 1968 through 1971. The program was hosted by a character named Aloysius T. MacGillicuddy (or Mister Mac), played by Cleveland actor Leif Ancker. Mr. Mac lived in a tree and served as the "Commissioner of the Bureau of Elves, Leprechauns and Little People" in the "Department of Utter Confusion." Popeye cartoons were interspersed with comedy sketches featuring Mr. Mac and his upstairs neighbor, Clyde Moose. The program won a regional Emmy award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' Lower Great Lakes Chapter in 1971.
