Mel Blanc signs a card with two pennies.
Card signed: "And another [two pennies] for a 'Town Car'/Mel Blanc", 5½x3½ folded. Printed message on front reads: "because you are very special to me, a ford or chevy won't do - so with my warmest wishes, here's a lincoln for you." In 1937, Mel Blanc (1908-1989) was hired to provide the voice for a drunken bull in the Warner Bros. Looney Tune, Picador Porky. He also did the voice of Porky ("Th-th-th-that's all, Folks") Pig, previously voiced by a genuine stammerer who knew nothing about comic timing. Before long, Blanc created the voice of Daffy Duck, whose lisping cadence was inspired by Warner Bros. cartoon boss Leon Schlesinger. In 1940, Blanc created the insouciant, carrot-chopping Bugs Bunny. Ironically, Blanc was allergic to carrots. He freelanced with MGM and Walter Lantz animation firms, creating the Woody Woodpecker's laugh for Lantz. Blanc signed to work exclusively at Warners in the early 1940s. Voices he created include Sylvester, Tweety Pie, Foghorn Leghorn, Speedy Gonzales, Pepe Le Pew and Yosemite Sam. Fine condition.
