For the majority of the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts, Mel Blanc (and other voice actors, eventually) would be listed under Voice Characterizations. Lately I've realized that the WB shorts are the only ones to refer to voice actors as "Voice Characterizations". Other things might just list voice actors under "voices" or "voice cast", or maybe "featuring the voices of....", or they might not even use the word "voices" to refer to their actors. But outside of the classic WB shorts, was "Voice Characterizations" ever used? Is the term trademarked (I think that it shouldn't be, but you never know)?

I think WB was the only one who used the term. And in some post-Blanc Ford/Lennon specials, Jeff Bergman was credited as "classic voice recreations".

As for Disney, their term was "With the Talents of..."

The phrase by "Disney" could be used in crediting any person for any type of talent.

The narrator of the Casper Noveltoon trilogy got credit in all 3 films.

In the Famous Studios Screen Song "The Ski's the Limit" Jackson Beck got a screen credit for narration.

Frank Gallup got narration credit for the first 3 Caspers at Famous Studios.

Some of the Screen Songs at Famous credit narration to Charles Irving.

As to the term, "Voice Characterizations", I believe Mel Blanc had that in his contract with Warners.

Rankin/Bass had that credit in their very last, post "Paul Coker and co." look when thye did Comic Strip, Thundercats, etc. For the 1959-1966 "Loopy De Loops" and 1963-67 "Magilla Gorillas and "Peter Potamsues", Hanna-Barbera ALSO used the term (BUT./.Mel Blanc had then become one of their voices.)

Stan Freberg's "Three Little Bops" had "Vocal: Stan Freberg"

The Jack Benny cast, including a below-ranking Mel Blanc, for "Mouse that Jack Built".had
CAST
JACK JACK BENNY
MARY MARY LIVINGSTONE
ROCHESTER ROCHESTER*
DON DON WILSON
MAXWELL MEL BLANC**


*Though, of course, EDDIE ANDERSON, technically really should have been the credited name..Rochester was just the character.
**On screen, that is the actual way the credits are given. I'd seen Three Little Bops, and on afterschool TV (meaning I'd see Stan Freberg's credit, seeing that he';d been a celeb by now,1957) DECADES before I finally saw Mouse that Jack Built (1959)..in 1991, and on Nickelodeon, so of course the credits were there.
