I don’t care if it’s a late Christmas Present or a New Year’s gift, I’ll take it! Animation author and expert Jerry Beck over at CartoonBrew.com got permission to post a terrific little promotional record made by some of my early voice-actor idols: Daws Butler, Don Messick, June Foray, and Doug Young. And it still holds some true insight into the trials and travails of advertising copywriters (and even those of us who have to put up with client VO Wannabees!).
The post even has a picture of the record label, with caricatures by Disney artist/director Tee Hee (his real name). It’s a lot of fun…at least it was for me: a guy who grew up with Daws, Don, and the rest bouncing around my imagination during those early years of Hanna-Barbera cartoons like Yogi Bear and Huckleberry Hound, and the classic Stan Freberg spoofs which often included Daws Butler and June Foray in digs at the advertising industry.
