Sure I like the mayor. He's the perfect replica of a typicle mayor or person in power. He's stupid and can't make decisions without somone talking in his ear. He isn't my favorite character though.

The Mayor worries way too much, and he's a bit of a whiner.

He can't make decisions by himself, and he seems to just go along with the crowd rather than put his foot down (as Anya stated in her post).

He takes so much --bleep-- from everybody and he doesn't really stand up for himself.

Even so...

The Mayor rocks!

You gotta read this interview of Glenn Shadix, the voiceactor for the Mayor. I have to love the paragrahp of how Glenn got the part.

Ditto darkragdoll. Mayor's cool...in his own quirky way.

Lol, nah the mayor's awesome ^_^ i like all the characters, Oogie's song was cool, but Jack's are better, err...anyway, the mayor has his own personality and is pretty bright for his age which makes him likable at times, loL!


Hmm, just what is Mayor's age anyways? I mean, how can you tell? He must be older than Jack at least. "Grab a hold my boy." Now 'my boy' would generally be a term that a person old enough to be your father would use.

What do you guys think?

Hmm. Good question!

I'd have to say, if he were a human, he'd be around his 40's or 50's. Maybe his late 40's, early 50's to be exact.

The mayor's a good character, and funny to boot! I just prefer Jack over him.

Actually, he is. Glenn Shadix even said he played the self-confident Mayor by using his good old Southern politician act. If you read in his interview on his website it should say this. But for some reason the site is down...hm. Just Google until you find it.

In fact Glenn even got his Equity card from the theatre dept. at Birmingham Southern in Alabama.

You're correct about that too. The self-confident side of Mayor is based off of Glenn's experience with Southern politician acting, the fearful, pessimistic side is based off of Karen Black in Airport 79.

On the interview, I loved how Glenn said he thought of Karen Black in her role as a flight stewardess and how she did her famous "cross-eyed grimace" while saying "I can't fly a plane!" So he gets into the pessimistic Mayor mode by repeating Black's line over and over.
