** In 1961, Blanc had a case of "[[IAmNotSpock I Am Spock]]" after a near-fatal car accident which left him in a coma for three weeks. After many attempts to wake him up from his coma, a doctor thought of saying, "How are you today, Bugs Bunny?" at which point he replied (obviously, in WesternAnimation/BugsBunny's voice).

'''Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc''' (May 30, 1908 -- July 10, 1989), a.k.a. "The ManOfAThousandVoices" was one of the most prolific voice actors of all time, as well as one of the best. Originally working in commercials and radio shows, Blanc was hired by Creator/WarnerBros in the late [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1930s]] to do voices for cartoons. And the rest is history.

* WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker: He briefly voiced the character in his first three cartoons, but was immediately forced to step down from the role once he gained an exclusive contract for the Looney Tunes series--but the famous Rat-A-Tat laugh that he gave Woody would be recycled well up into the 1950's, even after Woody found other actors. His voice for Woody landed somewhere between a mix of his voices for PorkyPig and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck (but obviously sped up), with his laugh being derived from a rejected laugh he used for the rabbit in "Porky's Hare Hunt".

* [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Foghorn Leghorn]] - based off of Kenny Delmar's Senator Claghorn character from radio (and, much like PepeLePew, has succumbed to the WeirdAlEffect).

* Characters/BugsBunny - He even chewed raw carrots to get the sound right... [[DoingitForTheArt and immediately spat them back out, because he couldn't swallow them fast enough since he hated the taste of them]]. He admits in his autobiography, ''That's Not All, Folks.'' that they tried a myriad of other vegetables for him to crunch, but unfortunately nothing else sounds like a carrot. There is a popular urban legend that he was allergic to carrots, but [[http://www.snopes.com/movies/actors/melblanc.asp this is false.]]

* PrivateSnafu: Basically the same voice he uses for BugsBunny (who happens to cameo in a short [[ActingForTwo alongside the bumbling solider]]).

* [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Elmer Fudd]] - The voice actor who made Elmer famous was Arthur Q. Bryan, but Blanc voiced Fudd in a few cartoons after Bryan's death (mostly in the 1970s and 1980s). He reluctantly did Elmer's one line in "WesternAnimation/TheScarletPumpernickel" though, as it was easier than bringing in Bryan for so little work. Blanc admittedly couldn't do Elmer's voice to his satisfaction, and this is why Elmer is not included in the "Speechless" lithograph.

** Most curiously, Woody's very first line in "Knock Knock" is Mel Blanc's normal speaking voice, which is not sped up at all.
