Spanish Voice of Bugs Bunny Dies

MEXICO CITY – Mexican actor Jorge Arvizu, who for decades gave voice to cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Felix the Cat and Fred Flintstone, died Tuesday of heart failure. He was 81.

The press said the actor, known as “El Tata,” had recently been hospitalized.

Arvizu was called the man of a thousand voices thanks to his long career dubbing English-language series into Spanish.

Among the characters whose words he spoke were Uncle Fester of the Addams Family, Agent 86, Huckleberry Hound, as well as Benito Bodoque (Benny the Ball) and Cucho (Choo-Choo), both members of Top Cat’s gang.

In the 1970s, Arvizu won recognition for his character “El Tata,” in the comedy “La Criada Bien Criada,” and with that nickname, which he kept as long as he lived, he was cast in numerous programs on the Televisa network.

The actor was also a producer and scriptwriter for stage, television and movies.

Additionally, in different productions about the history of Mexico, Arvizu played Francisco I. Madero, who led the revolution that ousted Porfirio Diaz in 1911.
