MorphWorld: Mike Mayock's voice into Daffy Duck's

Oijlijiljk

After a weekend listening to the draft guru opine on the NFL Network at the Combine in Indianapolis, I've grown to kind of like his lisp and mildly spluttery delivery, evocative of how Daffy Duck (above) might sound if he'd had speech therapy.

When you see Mayock (below)

on TV it's hard to think of him as other than your typical dweeb-become-football-guru, but the truth is that he was a defensive back for the New York Giants.

FunFact: Daffy Duck's voice was modeled after that of Warner Brothers producer Leon Schlesinger, who had a tendency to lisp.

One of Schlesinger's colleagues at Warner Brothers said he never realized what they'd done.

"One of Schlesinger's colleagues at Warner Brothers said he never realized what they'd done."

Schlesinger was not alone. In an interview after the release of Frankenstein Boris Karloff was asked if his lisp had caused difficulty in getting stage roles such as his acclaimed Hamlet. His reply? "Lithp? What lithp?"
