Mel Blanc is the greatest voice artist to ever live. His sobriquet, "The Man of 1000 Voices", was not an exaggeration. A viewer could sit and watch Warner Bros. cartoons for an entire Saturday morning and not hear any other voice performers than Mel Blanc. Out of his many performances, which do you think was the most interesting characterization?

I am a fan too. I made this related poll on 02/09/16: Most Prolific Actor Hollywood Has Ever Seen.
Your poll suggestion asks a different question and has a different answer pool.

Thanks Dan. My pick is Foghorn Leghorn - I say, I say, I say...

I don't know why The Maxwell suddenly doesn't have a photo. It had one before... :(

Mel Blanc has been and always will be my all-time favorite voice actor.  And no matter how often the "Powers That Be" try to improve on his legacy, there will never another person who can make Bugs Bunny go, "Eh, What's Up, Doc?", or make Porky Pig say, "Th-Th-Th-That's All, Folks!", the way that Mel did.  And speaking of which, I had looked at the "Live Poll" list on all the characters that he leant his voice to, and it looks like Bugs Bunny is winning by a landslide so far, and as usual, Daffy Duck is playing "Second Banana" to Bugs.  Of course, there's no way to tell how long that will last.  As for though, I was going to vote, but there was so many great characters to choose from, that I just couldn't make up my mind.  And besides, seeing as how Bugs is in the lead anyways, there doesn't seem to be any point, does it?

Hi Ryan,

Voting in the poll for Bugs or some other Mel Blanc voice character is not only a vote for that character but your endorsement that this is a good poll. In general, it is also shows your support of the IMDb polls.

Hold on a minute... I am pretty sure Elmer Fudd was actually voiced by Arthur Q. Bryan
