The Spongebob community is in mourning for ERnest Borgnine, who died today at the age of 95.  To Spongebob fans, he was best known as the voice of "Mermaid Man", the aged superhero who was brought out of retirment by Spongebob and Patrick.  He will be missed.  

In recognition of this man's contribution to the Spongebob franchise, we will be holding a "group tribute" to him.  Draw a picture featuring Mermaid Man (an original or a drawing from a still on the show), and mention in the drawing "Ernest "Mermaid Man" Borgnine 1917-2012."  Certain drawings will be added to the "Featured" folder at the admin's discretion.

First thing I remember him in was a Disney movie called the Black Hole. I think my family and I were the only ones in the theater. I never really understood why we were alone… It was a good movie, after all.

He was also in a television series or movie (can't remember which one it was) that I liked a lot. My memory is hazy on it, what I think it was called Airwolf. It was about some sort of super advanced helicopter, and Earnest played either the mechanic or the owner of the hangar.
