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.

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.
