Douglas "Doug" Young is an American voice actor who has worked on radio programs and in animated cartoons.


Early in his career, Young appeared in classic radio shows including The Cisco Kid, The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Red Ryder, and The Whistler. He was also the announcer on the syndicated radio comedy The Anderson Family which starred fellow cartoon voice artist Walter Tetley, and aired from 1946 to 1948.

Young later went to work for Hanna-Barbera; a master of accent and dialect, he often based his voices on those of famous performers, such as Jimmy Durante and Buddy Hackett. His credits include:

He used a Jimmy Durante imitation for Doggie Daddy's voice, but the role was later taken over by John Stephenson. Young is also well known as the "Grand Poobah" of The Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes in The Flintstones series.

As of March 2003, Young has been doing freelance voice work in Seattle, Washington.
