Butler and Messick in “Blooper’s Soap Revisited”

Everyone who loves the classic cartoon vocalizations of Daws Butler, Don Messick and June Foray is in for a real treat. Animator Mike Kazaleh found this rare recording in his collection and gave us the okay to post it online.

Mike says, “This is actually a sequel to another record. The first record took place at a recording studio as an animation director (played by Herschel Bernardi) is attempting to record a line of ad copy with actor “Morey Ziduals” (played by Shepard Menkin) while advertising man “Miltown Jag” (played by Daws Butler) is present. In this, the follow up, Daws Butler reprises his role as Miltown Jag with Don Messick as copywriter “Herb.” Doug Young and June Foray join in the fun.”

Blooper’s Soap Revisited is a 7″ record playing at 33 1/3 rpm. Note the wonderful Tee Hee caricature on the label. Was this released publicly – or (as I suspect) was this meant to be a voice demo for advertising work? It contains too many inside references to be something the general public would appreciate. All I know is, I certainly appreciate hearing this rare recording from the golden era of TV animation. Click the audio player embed after the jump to hear it.
