Horace A. Morgan aka Kewpie Morgan, "Old King Cole" from "Babes in Toyland" or as I know it"March of the Wooden Soldiers"

His role as Old King Cole in Babes in Toyland (1934) called for him to laugh continuously. After two days of filming, he ruptured muscles in his stomach.

Before Morgan became an actor he was a "juicer" (electrician) for a Hollywood studio.

Weighed 350 pounds when he appeared in Three Ages (1923) with 125 pound Buster Keaton.
