He appeared in the Three Stooges feature movie the "Outlaws is Coming" along with other Kiddy show hosts playing the role of "Billy the Kid."  He was the rival of Johnny Miller on Johnny's Follies and Uncle Henry Dupre of Popeye and Pals as they fought for the hearts and minds of New Orleans youth of the era.   Mack was also one of the city's best known TV sportscasters and one of the hosts of the Midday show on Channel 6.
