Videos of the Week    

(above):  Mel Blanc was probably one of the most popular voice artists of all time.  He began on radio with the Jack Benny Show but he would spread his talent to to other radio productions from Fibber McGee and Molly to the Judy Canova Show and others. 

He provided voices for most of the Warner Brothers cartoon characters from the 30s through the 1950s, and Hanna Barbera cartoons from the 1960s.  He brought the characters of Sylvester, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Yosemite Sam, Speedy Gonzales, the Martian and many more.  He also provided the voices of Barney Rubble in the Flintstones, Mr. Spacely from the Jetsons and even Twiki from Buck Rogers TV series from 1978.

Here is audio from a Mel Blanc record from 1953 just in time for Christmas here is ...."Christmas Tree."  Enjoy....
