Rest in peace Joe Alaskey

Voiceactor Joe Alaskey has sadly passed away. Fans here might remember him for his role as Yosemite Sam in the scene where Eddie visits the Acme factory. Sam's regular voiceactor; Mel Blanc was unable to do it due to his age so Alaskey took over. He would later go on to voice more Looney Tunes characters in other films and series.
Cause of death was cancer. He was 63 years old. Thanks to Screenrant for the info.
