The Faces Behind Some of TV’s Best Cartoon Characters

Published by at 11:45 am under Television

Cartoon Voices

There’s a big part of me that didn’t even want to share these pictures.  And I’ll give you two reasons why.  The first one is a question.  Ever see an athlete on TV and you’ve never heard them speak before and then when you do you’re like “I never thought he’d have that voice?”  You’re shocked and in fact disappointed when you see them again (this is the reverse reason).

The second is when you hear a song and have never seen what the band or singer looks like.  Inevitably they’re weird looking and from that point on you have to picture their ugly mugs when you hear their music.  (P.S. the same applies to phone sex).

Well the same goes for cartoons.  Some of the results are less than par.  Although some are OK.

Here are the faces behind some of TV’s best cartoon characters

    homer is irritating me^^

    can you do this for germans as well?

  2. IcemanDon 17 Nov 2009 at 12:29 pm

    The best parts of Family Guy are always when Stewie and Brian are talking to each other. I always found it hilarious knowing it’s just Seth MacFarlane in a room talking to himself.

    Also, Bitch Stewie in this weeks episode was pure gold.

  3. Madisonon 17 Nov 2009 at 12:36 pm

    @ IcemanD

    Yeah, Family Guy is always funnier for me when I envision Seth McFarlane in a sound booth doing his voices.

  4. Cherylon 17 Nov 2009 at 1:06 pm

    Seth Mcfarlane’s everyday voice is Brian yes? I have some of the seasons on DVD and when you see him doing the live readings and such he doesn’t seem to have to contort his face and stuff when he’s voicing Brian

    I also love that Jennifer Tilly is the voice of Joe’s wife Bonnie.

    where is kevin conroy?

  6. IcemanDon 17 Nov 2009 at 1:27 pm

    @ Cheryl: Yeah, Seth MacFarlane’s real voice is VERY close to what he does for Brian.

  7. Zeroon 17 Nov 2009 at 1:51 pm

    yeah, family guy’s pretty awesome, but i am tired of their musical numbers on the show.

    American Dad on the other hand, has improved quit a bit over the years. It’s like futurama vs the simpsons.

    I never realized that chick from Californication did the voice for Bobby Hill!

  9. Cusswordon 17 Nov 2009 at 3:22 pm

    Uncle Phil was Shredder? Wow…

  10. losttyon 17 Nov 2009 at 5:23 pm

    bobby hill definitely through me off, I actually had no idea it was a girl at all

  11. Ed Penanoon 17 Nov 2009 at 7:24 pm

    I find it amusing and wonderful that the voices of Meg were/are done by 3 Haute women! Yowza! Aiyaiyaiyaiyaiyai! ;D

    And Bobby Hill was way unexpected

    I too am incredulous at the revelation that Shredder was Uncle Phil. Mindboggling.

    Stephen Colbert (Ace and Gary – the Ambiguously Gay Duo, Reducto and Phil Ken Sebben – Harvey Birdman) deserves mention.

    Max – I thought I had read that the other voice (either Ace or Gary, not sure who did which one) was Steve Carrell.

    that is so cool on so many levels.

  25. Bazingaon 27 Nov 2009 at 2:54 pm

    You forgot about Katey Segal as Leela on Futurama and my favorite, Hank Azaria who does the voices of Moe and Chief Wiggum on The Simpsons. Oh and Jason Alexander as Duckman!

  26. raynre1on 29 Nov 2009 at 6:00 pm

    nice list but there’s this website that is the exact same thing as this but it has like a gazillion more actors and characters!!

    adam west is old.

  29. jakeon 16 Dec 2009 at 3:57 am

    Yes, Adam West is old…but at least he is still alive and finding work. You can’t say much for the other 60′s icons.

  30. Ericaon 31 Dec 2009 at 1:48 pm

    I had no idea the dad from Fresh Prince was SHREDDER! That’s just crazy!

  31. Random Stumbleron 03 Jan 2010 at 2:33 am

    LOL, I cant believe Uncle Phil from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air was the voice of Shredder on TMNT.
    Also cant believe that the voice for Tommy Pickles from Rugrats is such a hot lady lol, that show was the best & still remains a classic today.

  32. PFC11111on 06 Jan 2010 at 5:25 pm

    How about Julie Kavner (Marge Simpson) or Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson)?

  33. Bazingaon 11 Jan 2010 at 12:28 am

    Oh Yah, What about the many voices of Maggie Simpson:
    Elizabeth Taylor
    James Earl Jones
    Jodie Foster
    Just to name a few.
    Happy 20th Simpsons!

    Trey Parker and Matt Stone (or should that be Matt Stone and Trey Parker?) are the most talented of the group because they cover such a wide range of voices. Anyone who watches South Park knows this to be true.

    Some of the others have really nice voices that work well in cartoons too.

    Nice collection of pictures!

  41. Coupon Freakson 01 Feb 2010 at 8:07 pm

    Great list! I didnt know half of these women play men :O
