The Sun you might have noticed was voiced by Daws Butler, better known as Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss, Huckleberry Hound, Elroy Jetson, Quisp, and Scooby-Dum to name just a very few of his classic animated voice roles. This commercial by the way was taken from a 16MM ad print which would explain the beautiful presentation, you can visit Brian Durham’s FromFilm.Com to learn more about the project.
