On February 3rd, 2016 -  the voice actor Joe Alaskey passed away at the age of 63. While he was known for voicing the many lovable characters in the Warner Bros Animation Studios such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Sylvester the Cat, Foghorn Leghorn and Marvin the Martian- he also voiced Grandpa Pickles on Rugrats.

Thank you Mr. Alaskey for bringing life to these lovable characters (whom I consider my heroes) and playing a part in my passion. Rest in peace.

Joe Alaskey, voice talent

We grew up with his voice… Some saying he was the successor to Mel Blanc, with the continued voice for Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester and Tweety and boy was he fantastic. My most cherished memory of his voice is in Plucky Duck alone in the Tiny Toons series.

I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Alaskey the first time during a Comic Con panel with him and a few other voice talents I looked up to. He read off a Fractured Fairy Tale in the impression of Edward Everett Horton.

Then again I met him while working on Loonatics Unleashed where he did the voice of Sylth Vester and Prince Tweetums, from what I remember of him, he was a very soft spoken person but the voices that came from him, a slew of memories just came back in your mind.
