You Know The Voice: Daws Butler (1960)

Well, howdy there! Didja know that one of Huckleberry Hound's biggest fans was comedy legend Groucho Marx?

Aw, shucks! Ya didn't? Gawrsh! We found all this out when Daws Butler, the voice of Huck, Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, and others, was a contestant on You Bet Your Life in 1960. If you've ever wanted to know or see what Butler looked like, well, here y'are, podnuh.......

Former Milwaukee Braves manager Fred Haney, who was starting a broadcasting career that year, was also on the show, but who'd ever believe the incomparable Groucho was a fan of good ol' Huck Hound? I may have to do some research to see if Butler made any other appearances in front of the camera.
