They Grew Silent Once More...

Almost thirty years ago we lost Mel Blanc.  He died in 1989.  A few years later I was in a Warner Bros store at the local mall.  There I saw an amazing print for sale.  I wanted to pick it up but it was a tad out of my price range.  On the print was a lone microphone in a spotlight.  Off to the left were the major characters of the Looney Tunes, heads bowed in silence. It is called "SPEECHLESS."

On February 3rd, some of those characters grew silent once again.  Joe Alasky, the man who took over the voice of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck among others, has passed.  I mentioned on Facebook yesterday that no one could replace Mel Blanc, not really.  But Joe came damn close.  It was his voice that kept Bugs, Daffy, Tweety, and Sylvester alive.  All the while helping create new classic characters like Plucky Duck.  2016 has been a hard year so far when it comes to celebrity death.  So much so that I feared this one may slip away without mention.  The above image has been coopted many times to memorialize various people over the years.  Warner Bros themselves revisited the concept at the passing of Friz Freleng in 1995.  So I don't think anyone will mind...

Here's to you Joe.  Thank you for keeping my childhood alive for so many years...
