Happy week late birthday Greg, he was a good replacement for many a WB and HB replacements, it's too bad about what happened with his life and what could have happened had he did something to help himself

Happy birthday and RIP Greg!

He really feels like the underdog of Mel Blanc replacements, doing top notch voices for Elmer Fudd and Pepe le Pew imo. He also channeled Daws Butler perfectly, short after his death. Mr. DNA and Boss Nass were also pleasant roles of his, too.

It's a ****ing shame he had his demons. Getting blacklisted after alcohol problems and his meltdown in the mid-00's, makes me wonder what roles he would take if he helped himself. A really underrated talent.

@Ghosty404 He would've given anime a try, since they took in just about anybody at that time. Plus, it would've been interesting to hear Bugs' voice coming out of an anime character.

I remember seeing his meltdown being mentioned in the New York Post a few weeks before I graduated high school. Anybody know what he did in between 2004-2008? Was he at least trying to sober up?

@A-Log I dunno man. He didn't seem like he was trying to save himself during that period, going by some of the people that commented on him after his death.

He sure had an awful life, it's sad he didn't get the help he needed when he was alive

RIP Greg

The only major Looney Tune he didn't voice is Sylvester. That's impressive.
