Say What?

Mel Blanc in 1976

I like voices, accents, and have a bit of a interest in how people sound. Cartoon characters and their crazy voices really perked my interest even further. I remember growing up and seeing an American Express commercial with Mel Blanc. He was doing all my favorite Looney Tunes characters, and it just blew my mind when I finally realized he was responsible for giving life and voice to each and every one of the Looney Tune characters. Add the fact that call center work and my own voice has been my bread and butter for 18 years now I finally took the hint at being told the umpteenth time that I have a “radio voice” and have tried (emphasis on tried) my hand at doing some voice over acting.

I found this interesting video that dramatizes what people speaking English sound like to those who don’t. Being a amateur comedian I have done my share of “Fake accents” and somewhat convincing southern, British, French?, and assorted other accents and voices. I also have included “Crazy Commercials” voiced, and produced by me. (aka Midnight Pizza Productions) All the voices in “Crazy Commercials” are done by me. I hope you enjoy you blogging bloggers.. have a great day and don’t forget to leave a comment. 🙂

    1. Thanks.. Arnold, Bill Clinton (technically my Bill Clinton impression is my impression of SNL alumni Darrell Hammond doing a Bill Clinton Impression), Jim From Taxi, Groucho Marx, Edward G Robinson, are my only celebrity/TV personality impressions the rest curiously seem to be more Cartoon or animated character based: Bullwinkle, Yoda, Marvin The Martian, Pete The Puma, Boris, Natasha, rocky the flying squirrel, The Tasmanian Devil, Daffy Duck, and various other Looney Tune characters. I Think Warner Brothers and Mel Blanc had more of a impact than I could ever fully realize. Thanks for listening
