Billy West, only man that didn't voice Daffy Duck out of the Bunch. After Space Jam, his role was passed onto Elmer Fudd.

Mel Blanc will and always be number one in my book.This man who voiced so many beloved characters no wonder he's names The Man of A thousand Voices.

Mel Blanc- Okay, I don't usually care who is the original voice, I only go by sound, because that's what voice compare is, but Mel Blanc NAILED the creation of this character.

Joe Alaskey- This is the worst sound clip ever. Joe's voice is actually really good for Bugs Bunny!!! Watch Looney Tunes Back in Action! He puts a nice twist on it.

Jeff Bergman- Just like Galactic_Cyrus said: Frighteningly accurate!

Greg Burson- Good! But a bit too deep for Bugs.

Billy West- Too High! Easily Recognisable!!!

I didn't include Noel Blanc because I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION!!!

Mel Blanc, easily.
Second place - Jeff Bergman (Frighteningly accurate!)
Third place - Joe Alaskey (Very solid take)
Fourth place - Greg Burson (Decent, had potential)
Fifth place - Billy West (Way too recognizably him!)
Sixth place - Noel Blanc (Just 'cause you're Mel's son doesn't mean you can pull off Bugs' voice!)

Jeff is the best in the LooneyToons show so i'm going with him though Mel is good as 2nd.

Billy did not bad as did Greg & Joe.

Noel doesn't suit Bugs.

I also read another comment about Sam Vincent as Bugs. I'm wondering when he voiced him.

@HienFan I used to watch the show when I was younger & I remember sounding similar but thought it might have been 2 different guys. Guess I wasn't into voice actors at that young age.
HienFan

@Ross123 You should hear Greg Burson in Carrotblanca some day it's much deeper and more awkward sounding than the one in Tiny Toons
Ross123
said at 10:15 AM on Tue Jul 1 2014
@HienFan Sure, I'll check Carrotblanca out when I get the chance. But still Greg did a decent job even with the clip provided, at least to me.
HienFan
said at 4:17 AM on Wed Jul 2 2014
@Ross123 Yeah he actually sounds okay here I'm not sure what happened the final time he voiced Bugs(though I think that may be why he stopped voicing Bugs after Carrotblanca)

Ordered from best to worst:
1. Mel Blanc
2. Joe Alaskey
3. Jeff Bergman
4. Tie between Billy West, Greg Burson, and Noel Blanc
5. Sam Vincent, who isn't here

Mel Banc-Perfect in every way, after all, he is a man of 1000 voices.
Noel Blanc-The son of Mel Blanc, and a perfect successor.
Jeff Bergman-Gives Bugs personality, feeling, and a voice that sounds really natural.
Greg Burson-sounds older, but still sounds very natural.
Billy West-Jolly and light hearted, like the cartoon icon he is
Joe Alaskey-Sounds like Porky trying to sound like Bugs with no studders. He sounds okay though.
They aren't all bad, but they each have a special charm to them.
HienFan
said at 8:10 AM on Thu Jul 18 2013
I'm one of the few who prefer some of the replacement over Bugs(Billy West and Jeff Bergman)
On the list of replacements
1 Billy West-Then again the first post Mel Blanc stuff I have seen back then were all voiced by Billy West(the Lost in time games, the racing game on the PS1)
2 Jeff Bergman(mainly his earlier voicing)
3 Noel Blanc
4 Joe Alasky(the first thing I thought when playing the Looney Tunes Back in action is man his voice is awkward and the movie version is not much better
5 Greg Burson- And this one sounds even worse pity he died though

Beside Mel Blanc, Here my rank;
1. Jeff Bergman(90's)
2. Joe Alaskey
3. Billy West
4. Greg Burson
5. Noel Blanc(To be fair though, he only had few lines. If he had more material I would rank him Third.)
6. Jeff Bergman(The Looney Tunes Show)

Maybe there should be a poll for who was the best voice *besides* Mel Blanc. Let the other 5 actors for Bugs duel it out.

I'd have to say my favorite replacement for the great Mel Blanc is Joe Alaskey. Jeff Bergman is a good sound-alike, but he doesn't give enough heart into it. Greg Burson and Billy West are both great too. My least favorite is Noel Blanc. Even if that's not him in that clip, I've heard him before, and he's not too good
MatthewC17

1. Mel Blanc - Classic/Memorable
2. Jeff Bergman - Quite an improvement for The Looney Tunes Show
3. Greg Burson - Sounds like a mix of both Mel and Jeff
4. Joe Alaskey - Seems accurate for the most part, but I find him too high sounding
5. Billy West - Given that the voice clip sounds like Fry, he's improved in recent performances
6. Noel Blanc - I find him too nasally for Bugs

1. Mel Blanc- Blanc is the definitive voice for Bugs
2. Joe Alaskey- this is much close to bugs regular tone and Alaskey does a great job at it
3. Jeff Bergman- Its very close to sounding like Blanc but not my favorite
4. Billy West- It sounds a little too high for bugs but its still a great impression
5. Noel Blanc- While I think he has too few lines he does sound good as bugs
6- Greg Burson- I don't know what it is, it just sounds kind of flat for bugs
pete

@skeletonking1234 Sounds very high pitched really close to Tweety so maybe that's it. Hear him in Carrotblanca? That was just weird.

Is the Noel Blanc clip actually Noel Blanc? Bugs' one line in the Tiny Toons Christmas special is sometimes attributed to Noel, but Greg Burson did other voices in that, and it sounds to me like Burson doing Bugs there too.

said at 9:51 AM on Tue Dec 24 2013
@TServo2049 I actually saw the Tiny Toons Christmas special recently and I noticed in the end credits of it that nobody was credited as the voice of Bugs for that single line he says at the end.

Of course Mel Blanc nails it, but I'd say the best imitator is Joe Alaskey. He not only captures Bugs' voice, but his personality as well! Jeff Bergman is decent, but he doesn't really capture Bugs' personality as well.

I don't know why people don't think Billy's version was good. Most of the others (exculding the legend himself Mel Blnac) sound like their forcing it while Billy's comes naturally

Jeff Bergman sounds the closest to Mel Blanc out of all of them.

Between Mel, Jeff, and Billy, I will be the minority and just spit it out: Jeff Bergman is the true successor to the legendary Mel Blanc... Not to say that Billy West was bad since I've seen Space Jam in my childhood (I rarely knew voice differences since I had, like, a cranium with hardly much intellect), but he seems much better in other roles (say, for example, Frylock in Futurama or Doug Funnie from Doug)

Obviously, Mel's the best, but I honestly think Joe's second best. He's certainly the best modern Daffy, and his Bugs is equally good. Jeff's OK, but kind of bland.

I won't compare Mel to the others, I'll only compare the succesours! Noel Blanc is halfway decent, Billy West is average at best but has done better on other projects, Greg Burson, (R.I.P.), was pretty darn close and it's sad he's left us, Joe Alaskey is fairly good but he sounds too laid back and relaxed, Jeff Bergman is by far the best here as he sounds nearly just like Blanc, for that he gets my vote for best Post-Blanc Bugs! :)

said at 10:40 PM on Tue Dec 7 2010
Sorry for the typos. Let me rewrite that...

"I listened to the clips again. Joe Alaskey's Bugs sounds too similar to Billy West's version. And that's not good to me.

Jeff Bergman is perfect. I'm so glad Warner Bros. decided to rehire him as Bug's (and Daffy's) new voice actor."
AnthonyT (Guest)
said at 10:27 PM on Tue Dec 7 2010
Jeff Bergman is perfect. His Bugs and Daffy voices are indistinguishable from Mel's. Watch "Box Office Bunny", "Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers", and "Blooper Bunny".

Billy West is ok, but his impression isn't "nasely" enough.

Joe Alaskey is good, but he's slightly off. His Sylvester is perfect though.

Noel Blanc is meh, he clearly didn't inherit his fathers voice talent.

Overall, I pick Jeff Bergman and Joe Alaskey. After 20 years, Jeff is once again doing Bugs and Daffy for the new Looney Tunes Show (Cartoon Network, 2011).
johnhunt (Guest)

Well, I'd say a poll for the "best replacement" would be more to the point. Of course Blanc is the best Bugs voice ever!

It would look pretty foolish not to have him included though lmao
johnhunt (Guest)

Also want to add that it's ridiculous to include Blanc in the "Who's the best Bugs voice" poll. Everyone else is merely trying to imitate HIM!
johnhunt (Guest)
said at 9:15 AM on Tue Nov 23 2010
They should have stuck with Bergman. His Bugs is really the least successful of his Blanc voices. But his Daffy in Box Office Bunny is virtually indistinguishable from Blanc, MILES better than Alaskey ever has been. (And his Elmer is even spot on!) It would be nice if these great characters had ONE replacement voice artist, so we'd know what they were going to sound like, and that person should be Bergman.

All I can say is that all of them do a great job capturing Bugs' essence. I think Billy West and Joe Alaskey were the best substitutes. But in this case... you just can't deny the legendary Mel Blanc.
