Noel Barton Blanc (born October 19, 1939) is an American voice actor, the son of late voice acting legend, Mel Blanc. Throughout Noel's childhood and early adulthood, he worked with his father on the Looney Tunes voices so that when the time came, he could take over for his father.[2] Following his father's death, Blanc made a number of appearances performing the voices of Looney Tunes characters. Other voice artists such as Billy West, Bob Bergen, and Joe Alaskey have also provided the character voices for Looney Tunes. Noel has voiced the characters of the Tasmanian Devil and Porky Pig on Tiny Toon Adventures and Elmer Fudd on the Family Guy Direct-to-video film 'Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.

Noel also had a knack of working behind the scenes, directing and producing.

Noel is CEO of Warner-Blanc, a joint venture of Warner Bros. and Blanc Communications Corp. He carries on his father's legacy of personal appearances, notably in the booth as a celebrity guest for the 2002 and 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 400 NASCAR Races featuring the Looney Tunes characters in themed paint schemes for Chevrolet drivers, where he performed Looney Tunes character voices before crowds of 200,000. Noel continues to be a regular featured guest on radio shows throughout the United States and Canada.
