Fact of the Day: Blanc Coma

Mel Blanc was a famous voice actor known for a vast number of memorable characters including Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Toons characters. He was in a car accident in 1961 that left him in a coma. He woke up when a doctor asked him “How are you feeling today, Bugs Bunny?” and he said (weakly) “Eh... just fine, Doc. How are you?” to him.

  2. A man of great talents and sadly lost to the entertainment world.
    I vaguely remember him in AMEX commercials in the 70's.
