Hiya Mr. Higley!
You knew some of the great cartoon voice performers.
Any stories come to mind?

I really don't have time to tell the BEST one. But it involved my friend Clarance Nash (Donald Duck) and the show I produced with Walt Disney Studios at Caesars Tahoe to honor him. It's a long story difficult to make short.
It was the biggest thrill of a lifetime and if I get the time this week, I'll try and encapsulate what went down that Sunday in 1981. Lets's just say it involved Ronald reagan, Roy Rogers, Box car Willy, Norm Crosby, Daws Butler, R2D2...yeah...it was KILLER! But it's the details leading up to it that make it a story. Smile

Daws Butler (the MANY voices of hanna Barbera...Yogi Bear, Elroy Jetson, Beany etc) was a pal and we would spend some very funny phone calls doing voices and playing characters. A really sweet man (as was Clarance) and a monumental talent unsurpassed in the voice industry (except may e by Mel Blanc...but I didn't know him Smile )

I was fortunate to voice a few characters for LIVE shows at theme parks (recorded voices) for Bullwinkle, Under Dog, Snidely Whiplash etc. That was great fun. And I did many commercials replicating Mel's and Daws voices in local and regional commercials (un-authorized of course.)
Some of my NON=faamous original voices can be heard in a demo at http://lionpoint.com

Thanks Eddie!

I think allot of guys miss how much sound plays in a show.

I am allways shocked at how few performers have mics, PA,s etc of any quality.

I gotta know, do you do a good Geppetto ?
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
