Von Johnson joined Turner Entertainment Co. as Vice President of Turner International Dubbing Productions for Turner Entertainment Distribution Services (aka: TEDS™) in 1995.  This was a period of significant international growth in network services for Turner through packaging and exporting international versions of TNT and the Cartoon Network in Europe, Asia and Latin America.  This activity created new markets for Turner’s vast library in various languages and cultures through television syndication sales.


Prior to the Time Warner acquisition in 1996, Ted Turner owned the MGM library, Hanna-Barbera (Flintstone's, Jonny Quest) the AIP library (Popeye and Betty Boop shorts), and the pre-1949 Warner Bros. library including dozens of classic Looney Toons.  Turner used these assets to create and grow the network services mentioned above.


The International Dubbing Productions Group set standards and managed the adaptation of the library products and new productions into multiple languages for worldwide distribution.  The process involved talent casting, international studio negotiations, technical and logistics management and financial control and contract administration.


Under Johnson's administration, the International Dubbing Group oversaw the creation of nearly 5000 half-hour versions of Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. cartoon product.  The Group cast the voices of Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd and many other classic Warner Bros. animated characters in Mandarin, Thai, French and Italian.  The Group cast the voices of Fred Flintstone, George Jetson, Jonny Quest and all of Hanna-Barbera’s characters in nearly every major language on earth.  The Group also pioneered the use of Internet-based audio technologies to assist in the casting and recording process.
