Happy Birthday and RIP Daws Butler!

Along with Don Messick and John Stephenson, Daws Butler was one of the Hanna-Barbera voice acting greats.

Yogi Bear was by far the most iconic role of his and one of his funniest. A runner up for close second would have to be Elroy Jetson who really does sound convincing as a little boy, a trait that's not very easy to find in grown adult male voice actors especially since Daws was in his mid 40's when he first started voicing Elroy and continued to be able to pull him off even in his older age and up until his death.

I also loved his performances as Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, Wally Gator, Funky Phantom, Henry Orbit, W.C. Cogswell and it's kind of amusing that he at one point once voiced Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.

Possibly the only grown man who can sound convincingly like a child!! His range alone was impressive.
