Joe Alaskey was an American actor, voice artist and comedian. He was one of the modern voice actors for Looney Tunes characters originally played by Mel Blanc, including Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety, Bugs Bunny and Marvin the Martian. He was also the voice of Plucky Duck, among others, in Tiny Toon Adventures.
His other voiceover roles include Grandpa Lou Pickles from Rugrats (succeeding the late David Doyle), Stinkie from the 1995 film Casper and its animated spin-off, Baby Huey in the second season of The Baby Huey Show (succeeding Sid Raymond), Thomas Timber Wolf from Timber Wolf, Sourpuss from Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, Droopy in recent Tom and Jerry films, Richard Nixon in Forrest Gump, Peter Potamus in Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, and some of the characters from The Haunted World of El Superbeasto. He often dubbed for- and even impersonated- Jackie Gleason, most notably on "lost" episodes of The Honeymooners. One of his latest voiceover roles was narrating Murder Comes to Town.
On camera, he portrayed Beano Froelich in Out of This World and Ron Douglas in Lucky Stiff. He was also a panelist in The New Hollywood Squares and the early 1990s version of Match Game, as well as the first announcer for Couch Potatoes.
