Noel Blanc

Today on my KMOX show, I talked with Noel Blanc about his father, Mel Blanc, the voice of so many classic cartoon characters -- Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Barney Rubble, Sylvester & Tweety, etc.

Mel taught Noel how do to some of those voices, but the son never went into the father's profession fulltime. We talked about what it was like growing up with his Dad and his alter egos, and various aspects of Mel's career. We also discussed Noel's current role as a spokesman for Great American Ink, which sells animation cels from classic Warner Brothers and Disney cartoons.

Listen.
