Happy Birthday Mel Blanc

Mel Blanc was born on May 30, 1908. Even if you don’t know his name (you should) you probably know many of the voices he provided for countless classic animated characters. Just look at a partial list: 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, Road Runner, and the Tasmanian Devil. He was a huge part of my childhood. He died in 1989 at the age of 81.

This one is before my time but he was a regular on the Jack Benny show.

Grace and peace.
