American king of the voiceover and provider of voices for 3,000 cartoons with nearly 400 characters as well as a dazzling array of sound effects. From the time he was a kid, he had an endless curiosity about voices and sounds. Attending school in Portland, OR, he took up musical instruments.

Blanc married Estelle Rosenbaum in 1933 and the two worked in radio together; they had one son. When the company could not afford additional actors, Mel did the voices. When they moved to Los Angeles, he joined a cartoon workshop that led to Looney Tunes where his first character was Porky Pig, followed by Bugs Bunny.

Mel was admitted to the hospital on 5/19/1989 with heart disease and emphysema and died on 7/10/1989.
