The Best Voice Talent in the Business
24 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember "Off To See The Wizard" - not because of ANY of the stories in ANY of the episodes - but because of the voice talent in the animated segments. After all, Daws Butler was in EVERY "Fractured Fairy Tale" that was part of "Rocky And His Friends" and "The Bullwinkle Show", and even "Cap'n Crunch" for Jay Ward Productions. And Daws played everyone from Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, Super Snooper and Blabber Mouse the detectives, to the ever-popular Snagglepuss for Hanna-Barbera Productions. The forever wonderful June Foray was the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel" himself on "Rocky And His Friends" and was in all but one of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" for Jay Ward, and Tweety's "Granny" and many others for Warner's, and "Witch Hazel" for BOTH Warner Brothers AND Walt Disney Productions! Anything those two were in would forever stick in my memory, regardless of whatever else was around what they did in any particular program.
