The voice of Looney Tunes woke up from a coma, responding as everyone’s favorite characters!
Looney Tunes is a lot of things for a lot of people.
For some it's a faint childhood memory filled with characters they'd probably be able to pick out. For others it's the basis of nostalgia, dominating their Saturday mornings for years.
For the voice of nearly every character, Mel Blanc, it may have saved his life.
Mel Blanc suffered a horrible car accident in 1961 on Dead Man's Curve in San Francisco and was almost killed. Instead, he slipped into a coma, going weeks without any sign of recovery or response.
14 days after the accident, the neurologist tried something new: he asked Blanc “Bugs Bunny, how are you doing today?”
A weak voice responded after a few tense moments,”Myeeeeh, What's up doc?”
The doctor continued asking if other Looney Tunes characters were present, including Tweety, as Blanc responded in the iconic voices. He made a full recovery after many months of rehabilitation.
