In space no one can hear you read.
But they can in the library!

What effects does the moon have on Earth? It influences it’s atmosphere, it tides, it’s people! Charlie Williams is a fine example.

Of course there will be Star Wars noises.


The phases and faces of the moon, by a gibbous baboon.

Nuff said. These are Lunar Toons with sound, comics and comedy.

This is a educational and hilarious show. BLAST OFF!

Lesson plan: How to draw, design, develop a concept or gag as dexterity in a laboratory.

Charlie wrote and illustrated a daily cartoon strip, Big Butte Junction for the Daily Times and Star Tribune, in 1995-1998 in Wyoming. It was about life in the rural west.


How to keep journals, write gags, make comedic lists and recording your thoughts. All elements of your personal style. Dreamin’ I like dreamin’.

My current strip is called Funny in the Head and can be found here!

When I was in 5th grade I used to deface magazines and newspapers. (with Mom’s permission of course!) It’s a good way to critique content and the ridiculousness of your realm. It’s not heckling, it’s postulating.

turkey talk 2


Journals of doodles, people sketches, funny ideas.

Don Martin was my inspiration and I practiced defacing magazine ads and newspaper stories. I was a budding heckler as early as the 2nd grade. A sense of humor is our strongest shield in today’s world.

Readin’ at the Speed of Sound!

Charlie Williams speaks fluent onomatopoeia and coaches young readers to use a more meaningful form of expression when reading outloud. We will exercise our throats and minds when building this story show. Your voice is an instrument and adds character, action and special effects to your stories. Exercises include: Intensive mimic clinic, imitation projection, shot POITS, word lifts, tongue laps, and most of all ….timing… (when and WHERE to practice being noisy!)


During each show we’ll review several fairy tales & picture books, various onomatopoetry and cacofunnies, using small motor skill doodles each patron can build their own personal library. (state funding not included 🙂

Sound safari tours and vocal expo.

We’ll do a speed reading triathlon. Verb vaulting. Tongue Twisters. Vocal gymnastics and a sound effect slalom.

The Noisy Adventures of MIGHTY MOUTH!

Listen! Out in the library! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Mighty Mouth!

Yes, Mighty Mouth! Incredible sound-effect generator and imitator! His secret identity is Charlie Williams, mild mannered library contractor. But when there are stories to be fabricated and soundtracks to be forged, he transforms into that marvelous wielder of onomatopoeia… MIGHTY MOUTH!
(a Quinn Martin Production)

Charlie’s amazing journey began when he was touring a Nuclear Powered Aviary back in the 1970’s. Bitten by a radioactive African Grey Parrot, he soon discovered strange new powers! He could eat with his feet, he really, Really, REALLY liked crackers and he could imitate any sound he heard! Watch and share in the fun as you also discover how “great power comes with great responsibility.”
(Cliche Productions Ltd.)

Warning: Rowdy with underlying sarcasm. Not for the auditorially squeamish. You will be asked to make some noise and be very silly. A sense of humor is advised.
