Daws Butler Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Nov 16, 1916
  • Died: May 18, 1988
  • Birth Name: Charles Dawson Butler

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, [[Feature~V50027~Time for Beany~timeforbeany[tvseries]]] (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." ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
