During his fifty year career, Daws Butler provided the voices for such beloved animated characters as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Chilly Willy, Elroy Jetson, and dozens of others. Interwoven throughout this interview with Butler are samples of his distinctive voice characterizations in cartoons, radio and television programs, commercials, and comedy records. The hour, based on the 1987 Arnold Kunert video documentary, includes a reunion between Daws Butler and Stan Freberg.

About the Narrators

Daws Butler was the master of voice. His was the voice behind most of the classic Hanna-Barbera characters: Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quickdraw McGraw, Elroy Jetson, and a hundred others. He also originated the vocal character of Cap’n Crunch and other famous Jay Ward cartoon characters. His significant work with Stan Freberg in the 1950s on The Stan Freberg Show and multimillion-selling records such as “St. George and the Dragonet” are still held in reverence today. He also ran a voice acting workshop for many years. Among his many successful students are Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, and Corey Burton, from Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind.

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua’s personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
