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. However, before he became known for his voice, Alaskey did sitcoms: in the mid 1980s, he appeared on an episode each of "Night Court" and "Head of the Class" before landing a key supporting role on "Out of This World", a live family comedy which starred Burt Reynolds as an alien and Maureen Flannigan as his half-alien daughter--Alaskey played Beano Froelich for 63 episodes over all four seasons. Along the way, he began to establish himself as a cartoon director's go-to voice-man, doing Sourpuss on TV's "Mighty Mouse", in addition to both Yosemite Sam and Foghorn Leghorn on the live action/animation hybrid film-noir, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", both in 1988. 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 the voice of Stinkie for the 1995 movie version) and as Grandpa Lou Pickles on Nickelodeon's "Rugrats", both on TV and in three consecutive movies over the late '90s and early '00s.
