Learn to Draw Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Marvin the Martian – Interview with Voice Actor Eric Bauza

What better way to celebrate Space Jam: A New Legacy than with an interview with the voice actor and talented animator, Eric Bauza. Bauza voices Bugs Bunny (not in this movie), Daffy Duck, Marvin the Martian, Porky Pig, Foghorn Leghorn, and Elmer Fudd. He sat down to teach us how to draw Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Marvin the Martian!

 

When you’re recording voices, do you go through the script, do each voice or do you go through and do one character at a time so that they can cut them together?

Eric Bauza – That’s a pretty good question. Sometimes I like to talk to myself, especially in traffic. It wouldn’t be hard for me to talk to myself in three different points.
But sometimes, for accuracy, they do like to go down the line and do one character at a time. But I am more than capable of making silly voices, and I encourage you all to do the same thing.

What was your favorite character that you have ever made?

EB – I mean, I’ve been blessed with the luck of working with a ton of characters that we all know. But Looney Tunes will always be my favorite. And I have to say it’s a 50/50 battle right now between Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. I mean, who doesn’t like a rabbit with these cute little whiskers and this little tiny nose in the big ears?
Yeah, and Daffy Duck too. He’s so funny. He gets so angry at the drop of a dime. And he gets himself into these funny situations. I just think he’s one of the funniest characters ever made. I’m not as much of a loudmouth as Daffy, but I love playing him in the booth. I get to play like this funny character. And especially in this movie coming out, I hope you guys really do get a chance to see “Space Jam: A New Legacy” because it’s been a long time since the Looney Tunes have been on the big screen. The filmmakers really did a good job with it.

What Looney Tunes character is most like you and why?

EB – There are so many different personalities in Looney Tunes. It’s hard to pick just one. I think generally Bugs Bunny because he doesn’t bug anybody. He kind of just stays in his rabbit hole. He’s pretty chill. But if you bug him, then he’ll bug you back. At lunchtime, I’m like Taz. I like to eat everything without chewing. And again, Daffy Duck. He’s just so funny. It’s funny to see like, that comedic kind of like greedy, he’s a bit of a jerk. He’s kind of like a frenemy. I think we all have frenemies, but again, he’s very redeemable. Sometimes he’ll definitely have a change of heart. And I think that’s why we like these characters because they’re not always perfect. They always have their little faults, but they always learn their lesson. They always kind of come back, and they kind of help us, and they teach us lessons. I think I’m a lot like all of these characters because they make me laugh and I like to make people laugh.
