The man behind the Cute creatures..

Saturday, July 25, 2009


Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc was born on May 30, 1908 at San Francisco, California, U.S. He is an American voice actor and comedian. However he is best known for his work with Warner Bros. He is known with his nickname “The Man of a Thousand Voices”.Hi is the voice behind the voice of such well-known characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Beaky Buzzard, Tweety Bird, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote, Barney Rubble, Mr. Spacely, and hundreds of others. Among the many lines he repeatedly uttered that rguably rival those of Shakespeare in terms of familiarity, if not intellectual depth: "Eh . . . what's up, Doc?" through the lips of the wiseacre hare, Bugs Bunny; "I tawt I taw a putty tat," from the tart-tongued canary Tweety, and "SSSSSsssuffering SSSSSuccotash," courtesy of Sylvester the sloppy cat. Not to mention Woody Woodpecker's signature laugh ("Hee, hee, heh, hah, ho. Hee, hee, heh, hah, ho"); both the laconic train conductor ("Anaheim, Azusa and Cuc-a-monga") and sputtering Maxwell auto of Jack Benny radio and TV show fame, and, of course, the stutter-strewn meanderings of Porky the wistful pig.
He was 81 and had been hospitalized since May 19 suffering from heart disease and related medical problems, said hospital spokesman Ron Wise. With Blanc when he died at 2:30 p.m. were his wife Estelle and son Noel, who now does most of his father's voices.
Blanc died on July 10, 1989 at the age of 81. This is the year when I was born. Just imagine if he did not leave I will be able to enjoy the Amazing Warner Bros. Characters.
