The 1959–60 television season was the height of success for the animated cartoon creative team of Messrs. Hanna-Barbera and one Daws Butler. Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, Mr. Jinks, Quick Draw McGraw, and Baba Looey were household names with young and old alike. Huckleberry Hound fan clubs sprouted around the country.

In this fourth volume of rarities, Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua has once again uncovered recordings of the legendary voice genius that were thought lost and remastered them for this collection. Among the audio treasures, Daws Butler’s son Chas plays straight man to Yogi Bear and Mr. Jinks in several original comedy sketches, which Butler wrote and which eventually led to his Uncle Dunkle and Donnie fractured fables.

About the Author

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.

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.

Bob Barker is best known as the epitome of game show hosts, having recently retired after fifty years on television and thirty-five years of hosting The Price Is Right—the longest running game show in television history. Prior to The Price Is Right he hosted Truth or Consequences for nearly twenty years and had his own radio show, The Bob Barker Show. Born in Darrington, Washington, on December 12, 1923, he currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
