Doozy

Doozy

Children from the 1960s and 1970s will be familiar with the Hanna-Barbera cartoons such as Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo. Many will remember the studio’s iconic style. What fascinates filmmaker Richard Squire is the voice behind the many villains: that of actor/comedian Paul Lynde. Doozy uses his often hysterically laughing and campy bad guys to examine the relationship between sexual ambiguity and crime, the importance and meaning of voices and laughter in cartoon series, as well as the often uncomfortable symbiosis between a character and its voice.
