Mel Blanc is perhaps best known as the voice of Bugs Bunny. However, he also provided the voice for many other cartoon characters including Woody Woodpecker, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Speedy Gonzalez, Pepe Le Pew, the Tasmanian Devil, Foghorn Leghorn, and Yosemite Sam. Mel Blanc passed away in 1989.
In 1997, Bugs Bunny was honored with his own postage stamp. As of 2005, this stamp ranked seventh in the list of All-Time Most Popular Commemorative Stamps, with 45.3 Million Bugs Bunny stamps purchased but never used (presumably, this means they are being hoarded by collectors).
