Animated Birthdays

Happy birthday to Trey Parker, one of the co-creators of the hit show South Park. Can you believe that the first South Park sketch “The Spirit of Christmas” was created in 1994 when Parker was twenty-two years old? The show ended up debuting in 1997 on Comedy Central. Parker is 36 today.

Today would have been Mel Blanc’s 99th birthday. Blanc was a voice actor known as the “Man of a Thousand Voices.” He is responsible for the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig and Barney Rubble, among others. Blanc passed away in 1989, and his tombstone reads, “That’s all, folks,” as dictated in his will.

I know you’re dying to know whose birthdays I missed between last Saturday and yesterday… You’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
