Cartoon Voiceovers

One thing Joe thoroughly enjoyed was doing cartoon voiceover work. It introduced him to an entire new generation of fans. His most popular character, which was tailor made for him, was Babu, the apprentice genie, on Hanna-Barbera's Saturday morning animated series, Jeannie (1973). The series also gave Joe the opportunity to work opposite a young actor, Mark Hamill, who in just four years would be cast as Luke Skywalker in Star WarsIn all, Joe voiced more than 120 Saturday morning cartoon episodes from 1972-1979. 

(A complete listing of Joe's cartoon voiceover work may be found in his updated and enlarged autobiography, Once a Stooge, Always a Stooge, published by Moonwater Press).
