He also, voice directed several cartoons during the 70's and 80's. In contrast to most directors, Burr was regularly insistent on prolonging recording sessions out to the eight-hour maximum defined by the Screen Actor's Guild. That habit of his, it is said, was a major contributing factor to the 1987 animation voice artist strike; one of the striking actors' primary demands was the reduction of the maximum session length to four hours.

  • He was the dialogue director for the 1st season (1973) of the Super Friends for 16 episodes.
  • He was the recording director for the 2nd season (1977) of the Super Friends for 15 episodes.
  • He was the voice director for the original Transformers cartoon (1984 to 1987).[1]
