Mel Blanc Facts
Blanc legally changed his last name from Blank to Blanc because of a nasty school teacher who used to make fun of it.

Originally, the sound of the Maxwell car on Jack Benny's radio show was a pre-recorded sound effect on a phonograph record. During a live broadcast, however, Blanc noticed that the record player wasn't turned on for the crucial moment when the effect was supposed to play. He quickly grabbed the microphone and improvised the sounds himself, to the utter delight of the studio audience. Benny made it part of the program from then on and gave Blanc much larger parts to play in the show.

Only got his start at Warner Brothers after one of their voice actors died.
