BearManor Media publishes Cartoon Scripts by Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear

2009-10-08 17:01:22 - "Uncle Dunkle and Donnie" was edited, co-written and illustrated by Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua (of NAPANOCH, NY), who has also recorded the audio "cartoon" book. Available at: http://bearmanormedia.bizland.com/id244.html

A seal who can't balance? An elephant who always forgets? A green cow who walks on her front feet? These are just some of the wacky characters from the unique mind of Daws Butler, the man who voiced most of the classic Hanna-Barbera characters--Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw and Snagglepuss, to name a few.

Uncle Dunkle and Donnie is a collection of imaginative, never-before-released cartoon scripts by Butler, who also worked on the classic 1960s Jay Ward "Fractured Fairy Tales" and "Aesop and Sons" animated cartoons.

The book was edited, co-written and illustrated (in retro Hanna-Barbera style) by Joe Bevilacqua, who has also recorded an audio "cartoon" book of UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE, doing all the voices himself!

As the protege of cartoon voice legend Daws Butler (Yogi Bear), Bevilacqua, a veteran award-winning broadcaster (NPR, XM Radio), is no stranger to the cartoon world. Joe Bev even co-authored his mentor's
authorized biography, "Daws Butler, Characters Actor", available at http:/www.BearManorMedia.Com">http:/www.BearManorMedia.Com

Uncle Uncle and Donnie is available at:
http://bearmanormedia.bizland.com/id244.html, for Just $19.95 plus postage.

What the animation industry is saying about UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE:

"It all started with Daws Butler--actor, writer, teacher--writing UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE children's stories with exquisite sophisticated humor but always resonating with gentle and subtle lessons in morality. Then came Joe Bevilacqua--also actor, writer and producer--vocally bringing to life all of the charming characters in the Daws Butler book. Reading and listening to UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE is a delightful experience that you and your family can and will enjoy!"

- June Foray, legendary voice actress (Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Witch
Hazel, Granny)

"Any cartoon fan can recognize Daws Butler's multitude of voices, but few know of his writing. Butler, a purveyor of witty wordplay and twisty tales, will surprise and amuse readers. These stories now come to life as told by the hilarious Joe Bevilacqua, man of 97 voices!"

- Linda Simensky (Senior Director of Programming for PBS Kids)

"Those of us who loved (and still love) Daws are grateful to Joe for all his endeavors that keep the name alive. This fine collection of the works of Butler and Bevilacqua is yet another in a long list."

Mark Evanier, Writer-Historian

GEO IS ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL!!!!


We are so happy for our friend Geo Beach.

His new show starts on the History channel...

THURSDAY
MAY 8th !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Geo Beach hosts History's new American Originals series Tougher In Alaska with Geo Beach


In October 2006 I began work on a non-fiction documentary television project that has become a window onto America's dream of itself, Alaska. In two and a half weeks, Tougher In Alaska with Geo Beach premieres nationally. I collected some terrific stories canvassing Alaska from Panhandle to North Slope, limning the western coast, and stomping a lot of ground in between. Some of those stories are perfect for television. Many more are more intimate secrets that best live in the imaginative space of radio. I hope you'll be able to watch some of the episodes -- and share the stories with your listeners.

Review of 'A Mathematical Valentine'

Review of 'A Mathematical Valentine' by Joe Bevilacqua
Reviewed by Joel Brussell

Earnest, Edgy

I like the feel of this piece particularly the idea that a math teacher is making an effort to console us in the world of endless emotion.

Definitely timely and a breath of fresh air for the upcoming Valentines Day.
