  • Mel Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice actor and comedian. Although he began his nearly six-decade-long career performing in radio commercials, Blanc is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. during the "Golden Age of American animation" (and later for Hanna-Barbera television productions) as the voice of such well-known characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote, Woody Woodpecker, Barney Rubble, Mr. Spacely, Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman, Heathcliff, and hundreds of others. 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.
  • In 1961, he was in a near-fatal car accident. During his recuperation, Mel performed his lines for The Flintstones from his bed (though Daws Butler substituted for him in a few episodes). Mel once commented that he never heard one person say a bad word about Joe Barbera. One of Mel's last roles was in Jetsons: The Movie, where he reprised the character of Mr. Spacely from the TV show. The movie was released in the summer of 1990, a year after his death.

  • Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice artist, actor, radio comedian, and recording artist. Although he began his over 60-year career performing in radio, he is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. as the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and many of the other characters from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical short films, during the Golden Age of Animation. His career with Warner Bros. began in 1937 with the short Picador Porky (in which he voiced a drunken bull).

His wide range of work gave him the cool nickname, "The Man of a Thousand Voices", hence he is the Trope Namer. (It should be noted that this is an exaggeration; he admitted in his autobiography that he's "only" done around 850 voices).

  • Mel Blanc, właśc. Melvin Jerome Blanc (ur. 30 maja 1908 w San Francisco, zm. 10 lipca 1989 w Los Angeles) – amerykański aktor, znany jako głos bohaterów filmów animowanych wytwórni Warner Bros. Udzielał głosu popularnym bohaterom kreskówek, m.in. Królikowi Bugsowi, Kaczorowi Daffy'emu, Śwince Porky, ptaszkowi Tweety, kotu Sylwestrowi i wielu innym; nazywany „Człowiekiem o 1000 głosach”. Mimo że nikt właściwie nie wiedział jak wygląda, kilka pokoleń dzieci natychmiast rozpoznawało jego głos – począwszy od złotej ery Zwariowanych melodii (Merrie Melodies) wytwórni Warner Bros. Do najsłynniejszych „kreskówkowych” kwestii na świecie można zaliczyć wykonywane przez Blanca Eh, what's up, Doc? Królika Bugsa, I tawt I taw a putty cat Tweety'ego, Beep, beep Strusia Pędziwiatra, Thufferin' thuccotash Sylwestra, charakterystyczny śmiech Woody Woodpeckera Hee, hee, heh, ho. Hee, hee, heh, ho czy jąkanie świnki Porky Th-th-th-th-that's all f-f-f-folks. Mel Blanc rozpoczynał karierę jako muzyk i radiowiec w 1927, występując w radiowym show The Hoot Owls w Portland. Pierwszą postacią, którą „zagrał” dla wytwórni Warner Bros był pijany byk w filmiku Picador Porky z serii Looney Tunes w 1937. Legenda głosi, że aktor użyczający wówczas głosu Śwince Porky rzeczywiście się jąkał. Kilka miesięcy później Mel Blanc przejął rolę Porky'ego w kreskówce Porky's Duck Hunt. W tym samym czasie stworzył Kaczora Duffy, a wkrótce poszedł za ciosem wymyślając głosy innych doskonale znanych bohaterów kreskówek takich, jak Speedy Gonzales, Pepe Le Pew (w polskiej wersji Pepe Le Swąd), Diabła Tasmańskiego, Foghorna Leghorna (czyli cwanego koguta), kota Heathcliffa czy Yosemite Sama. Poza tym użyczał głosu postaciom w kreskówek wytwórni Hanna-Barbera (najsłynniejsza rola aktora to Barneyowi Rubble z kreskówki Flintstonowie). Jego ostatni udział w filmie animowanym to Kto wrobił Królika Rogera z 1988 (w którym podkładał głosy Daffy'ego, Tweety'ego, Bugsa i Sylwestra) oraz Daffy Duck & Quackbusters, gdzie użyczał głosu postaciom Looney Tunes w interludiach między kolejnymi krótkometrażówkami. Ponadto trenował swojego syna Noela Blanca (też aktora) naśladowanie głosu postaci, których on kiedyś podkładał głosu. Zmarł w 1989 roku na serce w Los Angeles.

  • Jerome Melvin Blanc, a.k.a Mel Blanc, a.k.a "The Man of a Thousand Voices" was perhaps one of the most prolific voice actors of all time, as well as one of the best. Originally working in commercials and radio shows, Blanc was hired by Warner Bros. in the late 1930s to do voices for cartoons. And the rest, frankly, is history. Blanc is most notable for voicing most of the cast of Looney Tunes (among other cartoons), often bringing up cases of Talking to Himself. What's amazing is that most people probably wouldn't be able to tell that, most, if not all of the characters in each Looney Tunes short were being done by the same guy. (Leonard Maltin once put his talent into perspective by marveling that Tweety Bird and Yosemite Sam were the same man.) He was that good. It even got to the point that his knack for doing many voices was lampshaded in the Porky Pig short "Curtain Razor". He was also one of the only voice actors in his day to ever get a credit for his work in any theatrical shorts (which led to a variant of Misattributed Song when voices done by Daws Butler, Stan Freberg, or Arthur Q. Bryan were also assumed to be Mel). His wide range of work gave him the cool nickname, "The Man of a Thousand Voices", hence he is the Trope Namer. (It should be noted that this is an exaggeration; he admitted in his autobiography that he's "only" done around 850 voices). Oh, yeah, this is his tombstone. The "Speechless" lithograph was also made following his death Needless to say, Mel Blanc is a legend among voice actors -- his voice-work is considered the 'milestone' that marks the Golden Age of animated comedy, and his characters' catch-phrases are still remembered nearly a half-century later. Mel Blanc died in 1989, and, to this date, it seems not many voice actors, if any at all, can really match his wide range of voices. Warner Bros. now has a whole staff of voice-actors to cover what was once done by a single man. Some of his roles include... * Bugs Bunny - He even chewed raw carrots to get the sound right... and immediately spat them back out, because he couldn't swallow them fast enough since he hated the taste of them. He admits in his autobiography, That's Not All, Folks. that they tried a myriad of other vegetables for him to crunch, but unfortunately nothing else sounds like a carrot. * According to That Other Wiki, he had a case of "I Am Spock" after a near-fatal car accident which left him in a coma for three weeks. After many attempts to wake him up from his coma, a doctor thought of saying, "How are you today, Bugs Bunny?" at which point he replied (obviously, in Bugs Bunny's voice). * Daffy Duck - Basically, this was just his voice for Sylvester the Cat sped up. * Porky Pig - his first major role, as well as one of his last. Originated by Joe Dougherty (who actually had a stutter which was hard to control); Blanc replaced him in 1937. * Pepe Le Pew - based on French actor, Charles Boyer (though thanks to Blanc's take on Boyer for Pepe Le Pew, many generations wouldn't know that). * Sylvester the Cat - The character who sounds the closest to Blanc in Real Life. It was slightly exaggerated and a lisp was added. You can hear him speak his appearance on the Johnny Carson show. * Tweety Bird * Foghorn Leghorn - based off of Kenny Delmar's Senator Claghorn character from radio (and, much like Pepe Le Pew, has succumbed to the Weird Al Effect). * The Tasmanian Devil * Speedy Gonzales * Marvin the Martian * Yosemite Sam - The only of his classic characters he didn't portray in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? because his voice was too weak to handle Sam's gruffness. * Elmer Fudd - Blanc only voiced Fudd in a few cartoons following the death of Fudd's real voice actor, Arthur Q. Bryan. * Woody Woodpecker: Only for the first three shorts, though. * Barney Rubble (Daws Butler voiced Barney Rubble when Blanc was in the hospital. One episode even had Barney's voice change from Daws Butler's to Blanc's right in the middle of the episode). * Dino * Mr. Spacely - also very close to his real voice (and sounds similar to Yosemite Sam's when he gets angry). His final performance before his death was as Spacely. * Gregg Berger has a lovely story about how Blanc fell asleep during one of the recording sessions for The Jetsons with a lit cigarette in his hand. When awoken on the studio headphones, he awoke with a start and immediately cried out - in Mr. Spacely's voice - the catchphrase "Jet-SON!". * Secret Squirrel * The Bully Brothers, Chugaboom and Yak-Yak * Speed Buggy * Captain Caveman * Heathcliff - his last "new" character, first assumed in 1980 (more than four decades after his debut as a voice actor). * Mr. Postman from the George Burns and Gracie Allen radio show * A number of minor characters on The Jack Benny Program, including Jack's parrot, Jack's polar bear, and Jack's car. * Also Benny's violin teacher, Professor LeBlanc; the little Mexican guy that always triggered the "Si, Sy, Sue" routine; the put-upon store clerk that Benny always drove to insanity (sometimes, even suicide!) in the annual Christmas show; and the train station announcer who always intoned the "Anaheim, Azusa, and Cuc.... amonga!" schtick and its variations. * There's a story that he took over doing the car when, during an early rehearsal, he noticed that the tape recorder with the prerecorded tape of a failing car was unplugged. Not wanting to miss the cue, he stepped up to the microphone and quickly "stepped in" for the car, which was such a hit with those present that it was decided to give up on the tape and permanently appoint him car-in-chief. * And as an "English Horse" * Occasionally appeared as "himself" as an out-of-work actor, trying to get Jack Benny to let him do his Al Jolson imitation on his show. * A sometimes-mentioned running gag on the Jack Benny Show was that all of the various characters, animals and objects played by Mel Blanc bore a striking resemblance to each other... * Private Snafu * Twiki on Buck Rogers in The 25th Century * Alfred E. Neuman on the comedy song "What, Me Worry?" * And a whole lot more, including a number of secondary and one-time characters. Many have tried to make a complete list and failed. Even That Other Wiki admits that its list of Blanc's roles is incomplete.

Beginning in the 1950s, Blanc reprised many of his Benny characters on television, where he also worked extensively for Hanna-Barbera, playing Barney Rubble and Dino on The Flintstones. In 1975, he appeared on-camera in an American Express ad, commenting on his unique combination of celebrity, for his characters, and anononymity, as himself. A similar spot was filmed with Jim Henson. Mel Blanc's voice was heard in an episode of Sam and Friends where his recording of Stan Freberg's "Money" was lip-synched to. In 1982, he reprised his cartoon roles of Sylvester and Tweety on The Ronald McDonald All-Star Party album, which also featured the Sesame Street characters. Though Blanc died in 1989, archival recordings of his vocal effects as Dino were used in the Creature Shop productions The Flintstones and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.
