Storyline

For generations, Mel Blanc was one of the most famous Hollywood voice actors with his myriad of voices for classic animated characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and scores of others. However, animation was only one of the fields where Blanc shone through in his long career. This film covers the life of this amazingly talented and big hearted actor, comedian and musician as he became one of the performing greats from the golden ages of American animation and radio through to the 1980s.

Worthy - Mel Blanc's documentary: meaningful to our lives
28 July 2012 | by (Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area) – See all my reviews

Bill and I will enjoy reviewing Mel Blanc... again and again. It was nice enough feeling the smiles spread as we encountered Bugs Bunny again. That was just the beginning--oh not really the beginning The actual beginning was real footage re the crash you think killed him. Almost too much, and did break every bone in the precious man's body, but didn't get him! No, it was great seeing Bugs, but then seeing how all the different cartoon peeps came about, and seeing Mel Blanc truly being them was pure joy. To say it holds your attention's superfluous you could say. In this documentary we have the pleasure of almost "chatting" with him live time and again. His son tells us he did this with all the kids and other people who came to him, every day. But, see for yourself.
