Daws Butler Quotes:

[whislting and searching about frantically]
Country Cousin: Howdy do, cousin! Glad to meet ya! Say, where is that Red Riding Hood, huh? Where is she? Hey, Red! Where is that good-lookin' babe? I wanna love her and hug her and kiss her and hug her and...
[City Wolf bangs him on the head with a baseball bat]
City Wolf: Control yourself, cousin. Ms. Riding Hood is not here. You shall meet her this evening at the club. But remember, here in the city we do not shout and whistle at the ladies. Come now. It's top hat and tails, you know.

[first lines]
Narrator: Good evening, kiddies. Once upon a time, Little Red Riding Hood was skipping through the woods. She was going to her grandmother's house to take grandma a basket of nice goodies. But waiting in the woods was a mean old wolf ready to pounce upon poor Little Red Riding Hood.
Wolf: Oh, stop it! "Waiting in the woods was the mean old wolf ready to pounce on poor Red Riding Hood." I'm fed up with that sissy stuff. It's the same old story over and over. If you can't do this thing a new way, Bud, I quit!

Elmer Fudd as King of the Elves: A manufacturer who sticks to old equipment cannot compete, and must fail. To survive, he must persuade people to risk savings in his business. He can then buy new equipment, increase production, and show a profit.
Shoemaker: And he keeps the profit?
Elmer Fudd as King of the Elves: Oh no, that's what a lot of people think. But he doesn't. Out of profit, he must pay dividends to investors. Profit must be put back into the business to fund newer and better machinery.
Shoemaker: Spend his profit on machinery? When does it all end?
Elmer Fudd as King of the Elves: It never ends! Constant replacement with the latest machinery makes the industry more efficient, thus enabling it to pay higher wages and still make a profit. This efficient operation also results in more goods, a better quality, and produces them at a lower cost to everyone!
Shoemaker: By thunder, if that's the way it's done, I'll do it!

Daws Butler Facts
His attempts to overcome shyness actually predated the amateur contests that he entered. When he was a junior in high school, he took Public Speaking. That was his first step. He claimed that he made a gag routine out of every speech that he gave (and in the process, antagonized his Public Speaking teacher).

His very first cartoon character was a kind of "smug" British character, as he termed it. He recorded that voice sometime in the 1940s. This came about after he tried to break into cartoon voices at Warner Brothers. Everyone asked, "Why do you bother? Mel Blanc does everything." Warners did not use him initially, although it later would use him (without on-screen credit) in several of its cartoons in the late 1950s -- most notably as the voices of Ralph Krumden and Ned Morton in "The Honeymousers". Warner also referred him to Johnny Burton and Tex Avery, who helped him get that very first voice credit.

Following his five-year run on puppet show "Time for Beany" (1949), Daws did struggle for a while. Many producers and directors refused to believe that he could still do cartoon voices. They told him, "We're not doing anything with puppets anymore!" So Daws sent out letters to 100-200 Hollywood producers, telling them that he had talent to do voices and he could also write comic material. The remarkable thing was that he did not use a mimeograph or photocopier (the latter technology being unavailable at the time). Daws actually wrote out each and every one of those 100+ letters individually.
