Daws Butler was one of the powerhouses of cartoon voices and has worked on scores of short and feature-length animated shows for both television and movies. Butler came to Hollywood in the mid-40s and got his start as part of "The Three Short Waves," a nightclub act that made fun of famous radio actors. He then earned national recognition when he imitated Dragnet co-star Ben Alexander on Stan Freberg's classic comedy record "St. George and the Dragonette." Butler starred in one of West Coast television's first puppet shows, Time for Beany (1949). He began working as a voice artist for the Hanna-Barbera animation studios in 1957, and during his long association with them provided the voices of at least 42 regular characters, including Yogi Bear --whose voice is a loose imitation of Art Carney-- Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss --based on comedian Burt Lahr-- and Wally Gator. Butler also voiced characters on Jay Ward's "Fractured Fairy Tales" and "Aesop and Son."
