Greg Burson

Description   [from Freebase]

Gregory Lewis "Greg" Burson (June 29, 1949 – July 22, 2008) was an American voice actor. Greg Burson was given the responsibility of voicing Bugs Bunny in the 1995 Carrotblanca, a well-received 8-minute Looney Tunes cartoon originally shown in cinemas alongside The Amazing Panda Adventure (US) and The Pebble and the Penguin (non-US). It has since been released on video, packaged with older Looney Tunes cartoons, and was even included in the special edition DVD release of Casablanca, of which it is both a parody and a homage. Burson also voiced Bugs in the 1996 short From Hare to Eternity, which is notable for being dedicated to the memory of the then-recently deceased Friz Freleng, and for being the final Looney Tunes cartoon that Chuck Jones directed. Greg Burson also provided Bugs' voice in The Bugs and Daffy Show, which ran on Cartoon Network from 1996 to 2003. He also voiced Yogi Bear on The New Yogi Bear Show (after the death of Daws Butler in 1988) and many other characters in Hanna-Barbera-related shows. Greg Burson died on July 22, 2008 at the age of 59 from complications due to diabetes and arteriosclerosis.
