*Also heard in Walter Lantz's largely Avery-directed (till P.J.Smith took over later) 1950S-1960S CHILLY WILLY series as Smedley the beag (or dog), at Warner Bros.in A WAGILY TALE (1958,Freleng) as a dog (end lines lonly) owsned by a little boy also voiced by Daws Butler, and in Hanna-barbera before they borrowed the voice, in RUFF AND REDDY where Daws voiced the first Hb series,voicing the dog Reddy who today in retrospect just like all the others BUtler characters disccused, sounds almost like Huck. Ruff, either as female or male, also marked in voice Don Messick's debut.
**Perhaps inspire dby then-already retired Kay Kyser,a "poor man's" variaiton perhaps of comicbandleader Spike Jones (kyser,like the Daws characters mentioned) hailed from North Carolina.Incidentally many of his were upbeat novelties heard in Warner cartoons like Bob Clampett's WWII era WE THE ANIAMLS SQUEAK (the mice singing OH LITTLE PLAYMATE)(and for the post-World War II WOODY WOODPECKER theme, bringing us back to Lantz and thus Butler terroity.Kyser was caricatured with a Bing Crosby voice--two homespun yet uptempo big band era legends,in Warner's 1938 KATNIP KOLLEGE dir.by Cal Dalton and Cal Howard,but that has no other connection than the professor-and music related ones.
