Joe Alaskey Passed Away!

Joe Alaskey, the voice of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck passed away today.

Joe Alaskey, the voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety and Sylvester and numerous characters in Warner Bros. animation passed away. Alaskey was one of the greatest successors post-Mel Blanc.

Alaskey also voiced Tiny Toons character Plucky Duck during the 1990s cartoon. Plucky. the spunky best friend of Buster and Babs Bunny, Plucky idolized Daffy Duck. 

Alaskey also voiced Grandpa Lou Pickles on Rugrats (inheriting the role after David Doyle's death in 1997). He voiced Lou again in the Rugrats spin-off series, All Grown Up!. and all three films. He also voiced Stinkie in Casper as well as that film's 1996 animated spin-off, The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper.

That's All Folks..... The famed words of Porky Pig, the iconic character from Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies.

May he rest in peace. Hopefully his legacy will go unnoticed. Alaskey was part of your childhood throughout the 1990s. Those were the days when Saturday Morning Cartoons were good.

It's been over a year since they were eliminated from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW.

World News Today send our condolences to the family of Joe Alaskey.
