In July 2003 the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, invited members to
discover the many talents of a person who became an icon in animation and
inspired an entire generation of voice actors: Daws Butler.
Hosted by Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua (a.k.a. Joe
Bev), the event included special guests June Foray (Rocky the Flying Squirrel,
Witch Hazel, and Granny), Corey Burton (Justice
League, Captain Hook), and Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson, Rugrats). The entire panel shared their
stories of Daws and performed several of Daws’ workshop scripts live.
Also played at the event was the rare sound of Daws
performing one of his own scripts. At the end, Corey Burton and Joe Bevilacqua
signed copies of Scenes for Actors and
Voices by Daws Butler.
