Mel Blanc Facts
Epitaph on headstone at his burial site in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood reads, "That's All, Folks!".

His license plate read "KMIT." A representative at the California Department of Motor Vehicles asked him if it stood for a radio station, since it is illegal to advertise on a plate. He replied, "No, that's actually an old Jewish expression, 'know me in truth.'" What it actually stood for was "kish mir im tuchis," a Yiddish phrase meaning "Kiss my ass.".
