Joseph Francis "Joe" Alaskey III (April 17, 1952 – February 3, 2016) was an American actor, voice artist, and comedian, credited as one of the successors of Mel Blanc in impersonating the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety, and other characters from Warner Bros. cartoons, such as Plucky Duck on Tiny Toon Adventures from 1990-1995.

Other workEdit

Alaskey had also done voices for non-Warner Bros. characters. He had voiced Lou Pickles on Rugrats (inheriting the role after David Doyle's death in 1997). He voiced Lou again in All Grown Up!. He also created the voice of Thomas Timberwolf for TimberWolf, created by Chuck Jones. Alaskey was heard briefly as the announcer for the Toon Disney channel (and sometimes Dcom extras on Disney Channel). He was the voice of Curt Connors in the Spider-Man 2 video game and Dr. Octopus in Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.

Alaskey has been seen occasionally on screen impersonating Jackie Gleason, with whom he shared a physical resemblance. In the 1980s, Gleason personally chose Alaskey to re-record selected dialogue from the "lost episodes" of The Honeymooners found in Gleason's private collection.

He also provided a vocal Gleason impersonation in the "Mighty's Wedlock Whimsy" episode of Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures in 1988 and a Cary Grant impersonation in "The Bride of Mighty Mouse" episode from the same season. Alaskey was in The Legend of Sasquatch and voiced Mermaid Man in SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, Pants! and SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab. Alaskey also voiced Stinkie in Casper, as well as The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper. He did additional voices for Beauty and the Beast (1991).

Alaskey is known for playing the role of Beano Froelich in Out of This World. Alaskey left the series early in its final season, but made appearances in a few episodes.

In 1989, Alaskey worked as the original announcer on Couch Potatoes, hosted by Marc Summers. Alaskey would make on-screen appearances, portraying the series' "next door neighbor." For the series' final weeks, he was replaced by Jim McKrell and the "next door neighbor" concept was dropped.

In 1994, he voiced McKluck and the Sneetches in Storybook Weaver and later in 2004, deluxe version in Storybook Weaver Deluxe.

In 2008, he participated in a unique interview conducted by Logan Leistikow and released by TheYellowMic.com. He answered questions and told his story, then went out onto Hollywood Boulevard and talked to people on the street who wanted to hear his famous voices. This was the first time Alaskey had performed in public in this manner.

In 2011, Alaskey voiced the Butch the Cat, Droopy, Professor Marvel, and third title character in Tom and Jerry and the Wizard of Oz.

DeathEdit

On February 3, 2016, Alaskey died in Green Island, New York of cancer at age 63.
