Daws Butler

Charles Dawson Butler was an American voice actor. He worked for the Hanna-Barbera animation production company where he originated the voices of many familiar characters, including Loopy De Loop, Wally Gator, Yogi Bear, Hokey Wolf, Elroy Jetson, Quick Draw McGraw and Huckleberry Hound. Butler was born on November 16, 1916, in Toledo, the only child of Charles Allen Butler and Ruth Butler; the family moved from Ohio to Oak Park, where Butler became interested in impersonating people. In 1935, the future voice master started as an impressionist, entering multiple amateur contests and winning most of them, he had entered them, not with the intention of showing his talent, but as a personal challenge to overcome his shyness, with success. Nonetheless, Butler won professional engagements at vaudeville theaters, he teamed up with fellow performers Jack Lavin and Willard Ovitz to form the comedy trio The Three Short Waves. The team played in theaters, on radio, in nightclubs, generating positive reviews from regional critics and audiences.

They dissolved their act in 1941 when Daws Butler joined the U. S. Navy as America entered World War II; some time after, he met his wife Myrtis during a wartime function near Washington, D. C, his first voice work for an animated character came in the animated short Short Snorts on Sports, produced by Screen Gems. MGM, Tex Avery hired Butler to provide the voice of a British wolf on Little Rural Riding Hood and to narrate several of his cartoons. Throughout the late 1940s and mid-1950s, he had roles in many Avery-directed cartoons. Beginning with The Three Little Pups, Butler provided the voice for a nameless wolf that spoke in a Southern accent and whistled all the time; this character appeared in Sheep Wrecked, Billy Boy and many more cartoons. While at MGM, Avery wanted Butler to try to do the voice of Droopy, at a time when Bill Thompson had been unavailable due to radio engagements. Instead, Butler recommended Don Messick, another actor and Butler's lifelong friend, who could imitate Thompson.

Thus, Messick voiced Droopy in several shorts. In 1949, Butler landed a role in a televised puppet show created by former Warner Bros. cartoon director Bob Clampett called Time for Beany. Butler was teamed with Stan Freberg, together they did all the voices of the puppets. Butler voiced Captain Huffenpuff. Freberg voiced Dishonest John. An entire stable of recurring characters were seen; the show's writers were Charles Shows and Lloyd Turner, whose dependably funny dialog was still always at the mercy of Butler's and Freberg's ad libs. Time for Beany ran from 1949–54, won several Emmy Awards. Butler turned his attention to writing and voicing several TV commercials. In the 1950s, Stan Freberg asked him to help him write comedy skits for his Capitol Records albums, their first collaboration, "St. George and the Dragonet", was the first comedy record to sell over one million copies. Freberg was more of a satirist who did song parodies, but the bulk of his dialogue routines were co-written by and co-starred Butler.

Butler teamed again with Freberg and actress June Foray in a CBS radio series, The Stan Freberg Show, which ran from July to October 1957 as a summer replacement for Jack Benny's program. Freberg's box set, Tip of the Freberg, chronicles every aspect of Freberg's career except the cartoon voice-over work, it showcases his career with Daws Butler. In Mr. Magoo, the UPA theatrical animated short series for Columbia Pictures, Butler played Magoo's nephew Waldo. In Freberg's "Green Chri$tma$" in 1958, a scathing indictment of the over-commercialization of the holiday, Butler soberly hoped instead that we'd remember "Whose birthday we're celebrating". Butler provided the voices of many nameless Walter Lantz characters for theatrical shorts seen on the Woody Woodpecker program, his characters included his rival Smedley, a southern-speaking dog. In 1957, after MGM had closed their animation unit, producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera formed their own company, Daws Butler and Don Messick were on hand to provide voices.

The first, The Ruff and Reddy Show, with Butler voicing Reddy, set the formula for the rest of the series of cartoons that the two helmed until the mid-1960s. He played the title roles in The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Quick Draw McGraw Show, The Yogi Bear Show, as well as a variety of other characters; some of the characters with voices by Butler from 1948 to 1978 included: Butler voiced most of these characters for decades, in both TV shows and in some commercials. The breakfast cereal mascot Cap'n Crunch became an icon of sorts on Saturday morning TV through many commercials produced by Jay Ward. Butler played Cap'n from the 1960s to the 1980s, he based the voice on that of character actor Charles Butterworth. In 1961, while Mel Blanc was recovering from a road accident, Daws Butler substituted for him to voice Barney Rubble in five episodes of The Flintstones. Butler had voiced the characters of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble in the 90 second pilot for the series (when i
