COOKIE BOWERS UPDATE

Several readers including Galen Fott pointed out the Cookie Bowers listing on IMDB. Mark Mayerson found a February 9th, 1940 listing for the Lyric Theatre in Time Square that had our Cookie featured in a live revue with Dick Powell. Cartoon voice expert Keith Scott wrote in to comment: “I knew about voice artist Cookie Bowers – I believe he was a mimic who did animal effects. Hadn’t seen a photo before this!” Ray Pointer concurs and sent us this: “Tom Kneitel informs me that “Cookie” Bowers was a nightclub performer in Manhattan who did funny animal sounds and dialects. He was a personal friend of Max Fleischer, and they were around the same age.”
