R.I.P.: Joe Alaskey, Voice Of 'Bugs Bunny' And 'Daffy Duck', Dead At 63

  • by: Jeremy Smith

Another great talent has been taken from us: Emmy-winning Voice Actor Joe Alaskey died earlier this evening. He was 63 and the cause was cancer.

Joe was an on-camera impressionist and comic actor but he achieved his greatest fame doing voices for animated cartoons, including the role of Grandpa Lou Pickles on Rugrats, and many of the major Warner Brothers characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety and Sylvester the Cat. Joe won his Emmy in 2004 for his portrayal of Daffy on the series, Duck Dodgers.

Alaskey's family members announced the news of the NY native's death Wednesday night.
