Happy Birthday to the Late Daws Butler!
Daws Butler provided the voice of Yogi Bear, Snagglepuss, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Chilly Willy, Elroy Jetson, and his greatest work, Hair Bear from “Help! It’s The Hair Bear Bunch”!
For those of you who are a little rusty on your 1971 cartoons, the Hair Bear Bunch were three bears who were always breaking out of the zoo, even though they could turn their normal-looking den into a SWINGING BACHELOR PAD at the flip of a switch!
The leader of the bunch was Hair Bear himself…who was immortalized for his huge afro, his vest and ascot and the fact that he wore a belt with no pants!
Here, Daws gives a tour of his home studio:
