PostSubject: 20 years ago; Remembering Mel Blanc   Sun Jul 26, 2009 12:04 pm

Hey guys, and now, we pay tribute to a man whom we lost 20 years ago this month:

Melvin Jerome Blanc better known as The Man of 1000 Voices

Mel Blanc has been doing radio for nearly 6 decades, but he became most famous for providing many cartoon voices

He did voices for many Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Characters

The likes of Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Pepe Le Pew, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Henery Hawk, Barnyard Dog, Charlie Dog, Sylvester the Cat, Sylvester, Jr., Tweety Bird, Speedy Gonzales, Slowpoke Rodriguez, Wile E. Coyote, Ralph the Wolf and Sam the Sheepdog, Beaky Buzzard, The Tasmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian and most famously Bugs Bunny

He has also done voice for many Hanna-Barbera and Ruby-Spears Characters:

The likes of Barney Rubble, Dino the Dinosaur, Secret Squirrel, Mr. Spacely, Speed Buggy and Captain Caveman

He also did the voice of Heathcliff for Ruby-Spears and DiC Entertainment

Sadly, Mel Blanc died on July 10, 1989 of Heart Disease @ the age of 81

But the memories still lives on syn. and Cable TV
