Video: Daws Butler

Back in July of 2003, ASIFA-Hollywood invited members to discover the many talents of a person who became an icon in animation and inspired an entire generation of voice actors: Daws Butler.

Hosted by Joe Bevilacqua, the event included special guests June Foray (Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Witch Hazel and Granny), Corey Burton (Justice League, Captain Hook, etc) and Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson, Rugrats). The entire panel shared their stories of Daws, and performed one of Daws’ workshop scripts live. Also at the event was the rare sound of Daws performing one of his own scripts was played.

At the end of the event, Corey Burton and Joe Bevilacqua signed copies of “Scenes for Actors and Voices” by Daws Butler.

This superb audio file was produced by Joe Bevilacqua for ASIFA-Hollywood.
