Mel Blanc Facts
1925: Was initiated into DeMolay at the Sunnyside Chapter in Portland, OR.

Jack Benny once said of him, "There are only five real people in Hollywood. Everybody else is Mel Blanc.".

1/24/61: Was in a near-fatal car accident while many of the shows that required his services, most importantly "The Flintstones" (1960), were still in production. He did the voices of his characters in both his home bed and his hospital bed, in a full body cast and with all his "Flintstones" co-stars and recording equipment crowded into the same room.
