When a bear gets in the Camp Waterlogg chicken coop, young Squeaky Lkie dreams that it’s Yogi Bear.
Joe Bevilacqua, protégé of renowned voice-actor Daws Butler, uncovered rare recordings of Butler as Yogi Bear and, along with his wife, Lorie Kellogg, improvised this hour-long story. This special edition of Bevilacqua’s Comedy-O-Rama Hour has aired on Sirius-XM, NPR stations, and podcasts throughout the world.
“If there was an award for best husband and wife narrating team, I think the clear winners would be Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg. Come to think of it, why isn’t there an award for best husband and wife narrating team? Somebody needs to look into that. Anyway, individually, Joe and Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special.”
Steven Brandt, Audiobook-Heaven
