About the Author

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.

About the Narrators

Nancy Cartwright has been the voice of Bart Simpson since 1987. She lives in the Los Angeles area.

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.

Lorie Kellogg is a busy graphic and voice-over artist as well as a skilled improv comedian. She studied painting, printmaking, and video and film at the Kansas City Art Institute and the California Institute of the Arts.

Corey Burton, a prolific voice actor, is best known as the current voice of Captain Hook for numerous Disney projects. He is also the voice of Brainiac in the DC animated universe; Count Dooku for numerous Star Wars projects; and Spike Witwicky in the Transformers universe. A former student of voice legend Daws Butler, he has worked for Cartoon Network and the Walt Disney company for more than forty years.
