. . . Noel Blanc . . .

Blanc was born on October 19, 1938 in Los Angeles, California. He is the son of voice actor Mel Blanc, and throughout Noel’s childhood and early adulthood, he worked with his father on the Looney Tunes voices so that when Mel Blanc eventually retired or died, Noel could take over for his father.[1] In 1961, Noel performed some of Mel’s voices, uncredited, when Mel was injured in a car accident.[2] Following his father’s death, Noel voiced Elmer Fudd (a character that was originally Arthur Q. Bryan‘s role that Mel inherited after Bryan’s death and occasionally during Bryan’s lifetime), The Tasmanian Devil, Porky Pig and other characters in Tiny Toon Adventures; he was one of several successors to his father in the immediate aftermath of Mel’s death, others including Jeff Bergman, Joe Alaskey, and Greg Burson. Warner Bros. had been splitting up the various voice-acting roles to prevent any one of them from being a singular successor.[3] He later contributed voice work to Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.

On January 29, 1962, Noel and his father Mel formed Blanc Communications Corporation,[4][5] a media company which remains in operation.[6] Together, they produced over 5000 public service announcements and commercials, appearing with Kirk Douglas, Lucille Ball, Vincent Price, Phyllis Diller, Liberace, and The Who. Kirk Douglas’ son, Joel Douglas, was one of the executives at Blanc Communications Corporation and helped to develop and produce commercials.[7]

Blanc has been married three times; he first married Larraine Zax in 1967, they divorced in 1972. Blanc then married actress Martha Smith in 1977, the marriage lasted for nine years until they divorced in 1986. In 1998, Blanc married his third wife Katherine Hushaw at the Warner Bros. Studios on June 3, 1998.[8][9]
