Creator: Daws Butler

Daws Butler (1916–1988) was one of the most prolific—and beloved—voice actors from the early days of television animation. Besides his work for Hanna-Barbera (where he was the equivalent of Mel Blanc), he did character voices during The Golden Age of Animation for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Jay Ward Productions, Warner Bros. , Walter Lantz and De Patie Freleng Enterprises. Signature characters include Wally Gator, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, and Elroy Jetson. The earlier part of Butler's career found him working as an impressionist on radio, stage, and the last days of vaudeville, and included several collaborations with Stan Freberg (including handling puppeteering duties with him in Time For Beany, the live-action predecessor of Beany And Cecil, and featuring in and co-writing The Stan Freberg Show).

In his later years he trained numerous voice actors out of his home in Beverly Hills (which you can see some of here)...nobody special, but there were some names you might have heard of:
