5.0 out of 5 stars
Clip-filled tribute to a master character actor, November 2, 2011

Yabba Dabba Doo!: The Alan Reed Story
A lively tribute to the life of character actor and cartoon voice Alan Reed, spiced by background music and audio clips of radio/TV shows and movies. Most of it is narrated by Alan Reed Jr. (whose father had died in 1977) but there are some bits spoken by Reed himself from 1970s interviews. Joe Barbera is heard commenting on Alan's work with The Flintstones (as Fred) and the creation of the series. Bill Marx narrates some letters Fred Allen wrote to Reed.

Teddy Bergman, later to become Alan Reed, was determined to be a stage actor, including a job in Oklahoma City and a dramatic academy. He found his way into what we now call old time radio (comedy/drama) and there are many clips of hilarious or dramatic moments from Baby Snooks, The Shadow, Fred Allen (where he did the Falstaff character), The Mel Blanc Show (an early partnership, years before they played Fred and Barney). Movie clips, too, and it's amazing to hear all the parts Alan played over the years. Joe Bevilacqua, who turns up doing some narration, puts in backing music and various clips which make this a nostalgia trip into the Golden Age of Radio. I really enjoyed all the clips, the inside info, and the journey into the life of a skillful character actor--the man who decided the best way to express

Fred Flintstone's exuberance at life was to shout out, "Yabba Dabba Doo!"

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist.

Joe Bev
In 1971, Bevilacqua's father bought him a cassette recorder, on which is created his first audio story: Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of 12.

In 1975, Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Joe Bev's personal mentor, after hearing 120 minute cassette of Bev's Willoughby improvisations.

Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced any award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius XM Radio and others.

In 2012, Bevilacqua signed an exclusive distribution deal with Blackstone Audio, for his more than 40 years of audio work. He is currently releasing hundreds of hours of audio documentaries, comedies, dramas, autobiographies and more.

Joe Bev can do hundreds of voices, dialects and impressions. For the upcoming movie "The Fly Room," he not only portrayed the on screen character of Uncle Dwight, he was personally commissioned by the director Alexis Gambis, to act as vocal coach to the cast during the entire shoot and wrote, produced and voiced a number of audio sound beds in the style of old time radio for use in the film.

Joe Bevilacqua also acts on stage, playing Martin Dysart in "Equus", roles in "Bedroom Farce," "Applause," "Black Comedy" and others. He is currently touring as Bud Abbott to Bob Greenberg's Lou Costello in "A Tribute to Bud & Lou", and will be portraying Jimmy Durante in the October 2013 production of "Coney Island Criminals" being performed the month of October 2013 at Coney Island.
