Mel Blanc sings the little red monkey and the pussycat parade

Melvin Jerome “Mel” Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice actor and comic actor. Although he began his sixty-plus-year career performing in radio, Blanc is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. as the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E. Coyote, the Tasmanian Devil and many of the other characters from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoon short films, produced during the golden age of American animation.

He later worked for Hanna-Barbera’s television cartoons, most notably as the voices of Barney Rubble in The Flintstones and Mr. Spacely in The Jetsons. Blanc was also a regular performer on The Jack Benny Program in both its radio and television formats (among various other radio and TV programs), and was the original voice of Woody Woodpecker for Universal Pictures.

Having earned the nickname “The Man of a Thousand Voices”, Blanc is regarded as one of the most influential people in the voice acting industry.
