Almost five hours of family entertainment! A seal who can't balance? An elephant who always forgets? A green cow who walks on her front feet? These are just some of the wacky characters from the unique mind of Daws Butler, the man who voiced most of the classic Hanna-Barbera characters: Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and Snagglepuss, to name a few. Uncle Dunkle and Donnie is a collection of imaginative, never-before-released cartoon scripts by Butler, who also worked on Jay Ward's classic 1960s Fractured Fairy Tales and Aesop and Sons animated cartoons. Daws Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua performs 97 different characters in this production!
Uncle Dunkle and Donnie was written by Daws Butler and Joe Bevilacqua, and fully produced with sound effects and performed by Joe Bevilacqua, with music written by Joe Bevilsvqua, performed by the Paul Salomone Trio, Julian Baker and Joe Gatto.

"Any cartoon fan can recognize Daws Butler's multitude of voices, but few know of his writing. Butler, a purveyor of witty wordplay and twisty tales, will surprise and amuse readers. These stories now come to life as told by the hilarious Joe Bevilacqua, man of 97 voices!" (Linda Simensky, Senior Director of Programming for PBS Kids)
It all started with Daws Butler - actor, writer, teacher - writing Uncle Dunkle and Donnie children's stories with exquisite, sophisticated humor but always resonating with gentle and subtle lessons in morality. Then came Joe Bevilacqua - also and actor, writer and producer - vocally bringing to life all of the charming characters in the Daws Butler book. Reading and listening to Uncle Dunkle and Donnie is a delightful experience that you and your family can and will enjoy!" (June Foray, legendary voice actress whose characters include Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Witch Hazel, and Granny)
"In Uncle Dunkle and Donnie, Joe Bevilacqua conducts an absolute clinic on the art of voice acting. Bevilacqua voices all 97 of the characters in these 35 episodes. His voices are unique and are delivered flawlessly. And he also writes stories and music! This is quite a talented guy. As with Joe Bev’s other Waterlogg Productions, the music and sound effects are well done, and the sound quality is very good. Hey, do yourself a favor, and take a break from the murder mysteries and vampire stories for a while. Sit back and let the old pros entertain you. This is 5 hours of listening pleasure that you won’t regret." (audiobook-heaven.com)
