Remembering Mel Blanc

On May 30, 1908, Mel Blanc came into the world. He brought with him Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Barney Rubble, Jack Benny's Maxwell automobile—The list is seemingly endless.

There are plenty of videos out there celebrating Blanc or unreeling his characters, but this one was one of the most detailed and one of the longest. The recording quality isn't great, but the content makes up for it. What amazes me is how quickly Blanc can go completely into voice character. We know he can do all those voices, but look how effortless it seems.

Happy birthday, Mel!
