Mel Blanc, the voice of legendary cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, celebrated his 80th birthday and says he has a successor in mind - his son, Noel. "He's like me," Blanc said. "He doesn't like to copy anybody. But he is the only one who sounds exactly like me." The senior Blanc celebrated Wednesday with a party at Warner Bros. studios. As longtime friends like Kirk Douglas and Cornell Wilde paid their respects and he was presented with a 1957 Edsel, Blanc talked about his 50-plus-year career, saying that Bugs Bunny is his favorite character. "Bugs will keep going forever - his voice will, anyway," he said. "He's a real stinker. People would like to be like him, but they don't have enough crust to do it."
