Paul Julian

From Loonipedia

Paul Hull Husted (June 25th, 1914 - September 5th, 1995), better known as "Paul Julian," was an American artist and designer, best known for voicing The Road-Runner for director Chuck Jones and drawing backgrounds (often suburban ones) for Friz Freleng's Tweety & Sylvester Cat series.

He first did the "beep, beep" noise in the Warner Bros. parking-lot as a polite means of telling people to get out of his way; Paul recorded several versions of this, and sound-engineer Treg Brown sped some of them up and looped them together. These recordings were ultimately used for the Wile E. Coyote & Roadrunner cartoons. However, Paul was uncredited for his work, as Mel Blanc's contract with WB ascertained that he was the only credited Looney Tunes voice-actor.

Paul died on September 5th, 1995 in Van Huys, California.
