voice actor DICK BEALS died this weekend at the age of 85….
okay…be honest…you don’t know the name, do you? i didn’t either…but i sure knew the voices he did…
DICK BEALS was the voice of “GUMBY.”
he also was the voice of “SPEEDY” the boy from the ALKA-SELTZER commercials….
but probably my favorite, DICK BEALS was the voice of “DAVEY” on the cartoon show “DAVEY AND GOLIATH.” we never missed that show in our home…..
what a talented man….he also acted on radio dramas like “THE LONE RANGER” “THE GREEN HORNET”, “DRAGNET”, and “GUNSMOKE.” radio shows only….not the tv ones….(radio shows were better anyway….”theater of the mind.”)
it kind of makes me sad to see such talented guys never get their just rewards…..oh well, i’m sure he’s getting them now!!
