Is this the same Danny Hutton of Three Dog Night fame?
The one and only Snakeboy!

Bill Hanna & Joe Barbera personally signed him to HBR records in 1965 to create music for their 50-odd Children's albums featuring The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, & Huckelberry Hound. Hutton's songs & vocals usually wound up on the albums as "extra bonus" songs alongside the featured H-B character's story albums, usually adoptions of famous fairy tales, & sometimes the occasional original story-line album. "Monster Shindig" originally appeared on a "Snooper & Blabber" Lp about monsters at a go-go party, & appeared as the flip side of his biggest hit "Rainbows & Roses"(#52 on the Billboard Charts), which was also on a "Flintstones" episode & Record album. Hutton's association with HBR continued until early 1967,with the demise of HBR Records, & his teaming up with Cory Wells & Chuck Negron of The Enemys (formely on MGM Records)& changed their named to Redwood. After failing to audition for Dennis Wilson over at Brother Records. (The other Beach Boys apparantly didn't approve of their recording of the original rendition of "Darlin", which the Beach Boys re-recorded for themselves.)Defeated, but not discouraged, the trio tried one more shot at stardom by changing the name again to The 3 Dog Night, & finally hit the jackpot on ABC-Dunhill Records & the hits "Try A Little Tenderness" & "One" in 1969.
