Imagine Bugs Bunny saying, “What’s up, Spock?”
Looney Tunes cartoons are full of glib violence and gore galore. How many times have you seen Elmer Fudd wielding a shotgun? Enough said? Violence aside, the Looney Tunes cartoon catalog features a serious depth of creative production from animation art to acting all aimed at eliciting laughter. Humor comes in many forms. Mel Blanc’s voice brought many animated forms to life. Looney Tunes cartoons aren’t quite my cup of humor tea–but they do tickle the funny bones of many people. So, with much appreciation to Berit for sharing this documentary with me, I offer Mel Blanc: The Man of a Thousand Voices, uploaded to YouTube by Chris Glidden, for your mental health uplift. This video also offers a certain history of the art of animation, radio and the entertainment media industry via Blanc’s story.
Enjoy the best medicine, laughter.
“Love what you do.” Mel Blanc
