One Last Hooray

Even at the very end Mel Blanc was still cracking jokes. It's hard to weep, reading his tombstone inscription: That's all folks! NOTE: Mel Blanc did the voices for all the Looney Tune characters.

Manel... nice to see you back! I'm not sure if Looney Tunes was popular in India, but it was a smash hit in America. You might have to be more familiar with the cartoons to understand what i'm getting at...

I still remember the art cell done of the Looney Tunes characters in front of his gravestone reflecting. It was such a powerful piece of art. This piece made me smile. Great job!
