Maurice LaMarche, sometimes credited as Maurice La Marche, is a Canadian voice actor and comedian. His roles for Hanna-Barbera (H-B) include Popeye and Pasha Peddler. He took the daunting task of providing a plethora of classic HB characters in a post-Hanna-Barbera world with the satirical Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, and also brought back the late Vincent Price when called on to do Price's character and inspiration, Vincent Van Ghoul.
