Daws Butler Quotes:

Elvis Buzzard: I did it, Pappy! I done plugged the rabbit critter!
Pappy Buzzard: Elvis, y'all didn't plug no rabbit critter. Y'all plugged your pappy. Now what'd ya do that *for*?
Elvis Buzzard: *Four*?
[Shoots again, hitting Pappy]

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!

[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.

Daws Butler Facts
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.

Sons Paul (in music), David (advertising), Don (mailman in Beverley Hills) and Charles/Chaz (doing odd jobs). Their mother Myrtis is 90.

Substituted for Mel Blanc as Barney Rubble on "The Flintstones" (1960) (while the former recovered from a serious car accident) in 5 episodes from 1961: "Droop Along Flintstone", "Fred Flintstone Woos Again", "The Hit Song Writers", "The Rock Quarry Story" and "The Little White Lie".
