Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Joe Alaskey is a voice actor and one of the most prominent practitioners of the Warner Brothers cartoon character catalog--including his own versions of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Sylvester and Tweety--as first created by the legendary voice maestro Mel Blanc.

In 1990, he joined the voice cast of "Tiny Toon Adventures" as Plucky Duck, a friend of Daffy's, who Alaskey also voiced (in various incarnations) from 2003 to 2005. Away from the Warner Brothers canon, Alaskey's most prominent gigs have been the Gorey Narrator on "Casper" (in addition to...
