Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice actor and comedian. Although he began his nearly six-decade-long career performing in radio commercials, Blanc is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. during the "Golden Age of American animation" as the original voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety, Yosemite Sam, the Tasmanian Devil, and numerous other Looney Tunes characters. Having earned the nickname "The Man of a Thousand Voices", Blanc is regarded as one of the most influential people in the voice-acting industry.
