Speaking Out Loud

Mel Blanc is a hero, of sorts, to me. His broad abilities and vast talent contributed to my love of animation and voice acting. Mark Evanier recently posted on his website at News From ME a video clip his friend, Bob "Porky Pig" Bergen
had pointed out to him. This clip shows a side of Blanc few have ever seen:

his larynx, or more specifically, his vocal cords.

Bob Bergen has been kind enough to publicly share some personal audio of Mel Blanc and others here.

Warning: The Private Snafu cartoons were written during a time of war and intended for military personnel and not for public distribution. They may be considered propaganda and racist. Please view them from an historical perspective.

Go here for a complete list of Private Snafu shorts. By the way, the more polite, less crass representaion of the acronym S.N.A.F.U. (i.e. politically correct) is Situation Normal, All Fouled Up. However, Fouled represents another word.
