Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 31, 2016) was an American voice actor, radio personality, and comedian.

Although he began his over 60-year career performing in radio, he is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. as the voice 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 American Animation. In a deal with Leon Schlesinger, Mel became the first voice actor to receive on-screen credit for his work.

Having earned the nickname “The Man of 1,000 Voices,” Mel is regarded as one of the most influential people in the voice-acting industry. Over the span of his career, he was in over 5,000 cartoons and did over 400 different voices for them.[1]

On July 31, 2016, Blanc died of heart disease and emphysema in Los Angeles, California at age 81.
