Mel Blanc: The Man With 1000 Voices

Post by Kitty » Tue May 30, 2017 4:33 pm

I love Mel Blanc, as I know most people do! He voiced so many characters. I think the only living voice actor that could match him is Billy West.
I thought this was a pretty cool picture. What memories do you have of some of the characters that he has voiced?

Great thread idea! :D Mel Blanc is a national treasure. I love all his characters, but I guess I'd have to say Bugs is my favorite. My second favorite voice is probably Elmer Fudd's, but actually that's one of the very few that he did not do, I believe.

Have you seen the hour long documentary on him? I watched it on YouTube back a couple of years ago and it was very good. I remember his saying at one point that Yosemite Sam was the most difficult voice he did because he had to shout in such a way that it hurt his throat.

Classic Jack Benny / Mel Blanc routine.
