The most recent voice of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Plucky Duck of Tiny Toons passed away last week.

"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain

Voice actors such as Alaskey and Mel Blanc give life to cartoon characters and make them instantly recognizable. Bugs Bunny's "What's up, Doc?", Elmer Fudd's "Wascally wabbit", the Roadrunner's "Meep meep", Fred Flintstone's "Wiiiiilmaaaa!", and even Spongebob's chattering laugh--these little sound bites have become cultural memes, thanks to Alaskey, Blanc, Tom Kenny, and others like them.
