Gregory Lewis Burson (June 29, 1949 July 22, 2008) was an American voice actor, best known for officially voicing a number of classic ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and Creator/HannaBarbera characters during TheNineties and the early [[TurnOfTheMillennium Noughties]].

Personally trained by Creator/DawsButler, Burson took over many his signature roles after his passing. He was also a replacement for the late Creator/MelBlanc, alternating with Creator/JoeAlaskey, Creator/JeffBergman, Creator/BobBergen, or Creator/BillyWest.

In his personal life, Burson struggled with [[TheAlcoholic alcoholism]]. This culminated in 2004, when an armed and inebriated Burson was arrested after barricading himself inside his home for six hours. The incident [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor killed his career]], which unfortunately [[YankTheDogsChain only drove him further into depression]].

Burson passed away on July 22, 2008, after four years of being separated from the recording booth. He was 59.
