26 years ago today 1,000 voices (over 400 characters by his count) were silenced with the loss of the great MEL BLANC (1908 - 1989)
He gave voice to so many of the cartoon characters we love: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety and Sylvester, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn . . . and Barney Rubble on "The Flintstones" to name a few.
Mel is gone,
