We’re back with another assortment of spots that may actually help to improve life in your town, maybe even the world. (I’m sorry, but we are legally obliged to devote a certain amount of our blog space to community service. Next week we’ll get back to the soda and candy and beer and like that, I promise.)
From UPA circa 1950. Starring the voices of Jerry Hausner and Marvin Miller.
From Era Productions. Animated by Ed Aardal.
Featuring the voice of Jim Backus. This is probably from Pelican Films.
Starring our favorite red-headed Woodpecker. Wally Walrus has been studying elocution here. From Walter Lantz Productions circa 1965. Animation by Art Davis, Les Kline, and Ray Abrams. Voices by Grace Stafford and Daws Butler. I suspect that Butler may have written this spot as well.
Cruelty to Autos
Kenny Delmar speaks. Senator Automobilehorn, maybe?
In an earlier post we featured a Hanna-Barbera anti-smoking ad from the late 60’s starring Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Fast forward about ten or twelve years, and we have another one from H&B, and an odd little commercial it is at that. Directed and animated by Gerard Baldwin, and starring Daws Butler and Don Messick. Yogi seems to have traded his pik-a-nik baskets in on a ukulele.
