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
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....
