Yes, today, January 9th, for one day only, it's David Butler's birthday. David was one of the greatest of all of Chiat/Day's copywriters. (He's retired now and living happily in sunny, batty Austin, Texas, with his wife, Margie.
I had known this at one time, but had forgotten that Dave is the son of one of the great cartoon voice artists of all times: Daws Butler. From his profile on Internet Movie Database. (And notice the resemblance.)
Daws Butler spent the greater part of his career as one of the premier voice-over actors in Hollywood- providing the voices for such well- known characters as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick-Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss, Jinks the cat, Dixie the mouse, Augie Doggie, Peter Potamus, Wally Gator, Hokey Wolf, Super Snooper, Blabber Mouse, Cogswell Cogs, Elroy Jetson and many others.
