in Penguins of Madagascar. Zapp Brannigan
of Futurama. Even Mr Peterman
of Seinfeld. You know the voice. Sounds like a B list fifties movie star or something. But that's the question- Who did it first?

Kirk Douglas, even John Wayne (sort of) come to mind, but I'm wondering if you have any other suggestions. (And if it was done straight originally, who first made it an intentional joke?) Thanks in advance.
