Voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck Dies

Joe Alaskey, who voiced Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck among other legendary cartoon characters, died on Wednesday of cancer, at the age of 63.
Alaskey replaced Mel Blanc as the voice of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck after his death in 1989, assuming the Warner Bros. characters during the 2000s, including in the film ‘Looney Tunes: Back in Action’, Variety reported.
He has also given voice to other Looney Tunes animated heroes, including Tweety and Sylvester the Cat.
He served as the primary voice for Plucky Duck on ‘Tiny Toon Adventures’ and Yosemite Sam on ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’
Alaskey won a Daytime Emmy Award for voicing Daffy the Duck on Cartoon Network’s ‘Duck Dodgers’. He also provided the voice-overs for Marvin the Martian, Foghorn Leghorn, Grandpa Lou Pickles on ‘Rugrats’, Droopy the Dog on ‘Tom and Jerry’ and the ghost Stinkie from ‘Casper’. He even lent his talents to ‘Forrest Gump’ as the voice of Richard Nixon.
Alaskey was also a writer, penning a memoir, ‘That’s Still Not All Folks!’, in 2009 and recently publishing a horror novel, ‘Frater Dementis’, and a collection of short stories, ‘Queasy Street: Volume One - Eleven Tales of Fantasy’.
