An obit might not be the place for a correction...
But with all due and very sincere respect...
It was in fact Mel Blanc, that created and voiced the iconic Warners cartoon characters that have become indelibly imprinted on our collective consciousness. Since Mel’s passing, everyone else has just been mimicking his genius. As any honest voice artist will attest.

Heard this news about voice actor Joe Alaskey passing. He had very big shoes to fill after the passing of Mel Blanc. Very sad to hear.
Cheer if you love Steptoe & Son!
