"Quick Draw McGraw - The Treasure Of Sarah's Mattress" (COLPIX Records CP 211)

Here we have one of the most hard to find of all of the COLPIX Hanna-Barbera LPs. The only one harder to find is the very first one "Ruff And Reddy". "Treasure Of Sarah's Mattress" is a story written by Daws Butler, and Don Messick. All of my online searching tells me that this never was an actual Quick Draw McGraw episode. And that the "Original TV Soundtrack" graphic is missing from the front of this LP that can be seen on most of the other COLPIX Records. It only says "Original TV Voices".

The LP liner notes say that.."Butler and Messick decided it would be fun to write a story which would bring all the leading characters together, rather than have them heard in separate segments, as in their own cartoon episodes". The third voice actor listed is Doug Young who was not only the voice of "Doggie Daddy", but also "Ding-a-ling" from the Hokey Wolf cartoon.

And years later almost of these characters would be paired together in Yogi's Space Race, Yogi's Gang, Yogi's Treasure Hunt and Yo Yogi!

Yes and another one I saw on Boomerang this past weekend - "The Good, The Bad And Huckleberry Hound".

I actually owned this record! My parents bought it for me at E.J. Korvettes in Falls Church, Virginia in late 1966 I think.

My mother tried to explain to me the play on words between my record and "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" but I never got it until I got older.

I loved it because the sound quality of the character's voices was so clear and strong. Back then, TV sound came through a small 2" speaker that had (barely) AM quality sound. It was amazing to hear all my favorite cartoon characters in hi-fidelity.

Thanks for bringing back a very fond memory.

I must be one of the blessed because my brother and I grew up listening to this record. The blessed part is that we still have it to this day. It is a little scratched in places and skips, but with a little luck and a lot of ingenuity, my brother cleaned up about 99% of the audio. It still brings me back to those days listening to it for the first time.
