It can be baffling enough when you see the voice behind one of your favorite cartoons! For instance, I don't know, finding out that Mila Kunis voices dumpy Meg on Family Guy? That was a real kicker! But it can be even more mind-blowing when you realize that two very different characters are voiced by the same person. It can destroy the illusion and I hate when illusions are destroyed. Oh well, as long as Ryan Gosling is still my boyfriend, I guess I can survive anything! Here's a look at some pairs of cartoon characters, surprisingly voiced by the same person.
Bender and Jake
It says a lot about voice actor John DiMaggio that he can play the alcoholic sociopath Bender just as convincingly as he can the laid back canine Jake. A little Bender must have seeped into Jake that time he wanted to squish all the cute people.
Fuzzy Lumpkins/ Cat
Redneck rageaholic and politely cunning cat? Is there anything voice actor Jim Cummings can't do? These two are even more of an odd couple than cat and dog! But they would be way creepier attached to each other. Don't get any ideas Dr. Josef Heiter!
Vicky the Babysitter and Azula
Looks like Grey DiLisle has the monopoly on malicious chick villains! Although I have mad respect for Azula and I just want to kick Vicki's ass. I have no desire to get my ass kicked by Azula.
Moe and Venom
I think we all know that Hank Azaria does like a zillion comic cartoon voices. That's the official tally, A ZILLION. I checked on IMDB. But you may not know he also voiced Venom on Spiderman-The Animated Series, which was not at all comical. Unlike the casting of Topher Grace as Venom in Spider-Man 3. That was a joke, right?
Ma-Ti and Robin
Scott Menville must feel pretty lucky that he went from playing cornball heart-healer Ma-Ti to playing badass hero and leader of the Teen Titans, Robin. I love the planet and all, but Captain Planet and the Planeteers was corny as hell, y'all! Can we all just admit this fact now?
Princess Peach and Cortana
I mean clearly Jen Taylor has a niche: totally kickass video game vixens. But Princess Peach and Cortana couldn't be more different. For instance, Cortana sexy fan fiction is way more understandable than Princess Peach sexy fan fiction. FACT.
Eeyore and Optimus Prime
Congratulations Peter Cullen. You have won the 'Most WTF character pairing on the list' award. I'm making you the trophy right now. It looks like a pot of honey but it turns into big rig with flamethrowers attached to the sides. You're welcome!
Raphael and Pinky
I guess it kind of makes sense that Rob Paulson played Pinky and Raphael. I mean Pinky is totally compatible with jerks and Raphael is generally considered the jerkiest TMNT. I mean that in a good way. I'd rather be a d*ck than be boring. I'm looking at you Donatello!
Green Lantern and Wilt
I kind of wanna see these two star together in buddy comedy/action flick! Actor Phil Lamarr will have to double-duty I guess. On a side note, Wilt is my favorite imaginary friend and I don't even like sports! I am however a huge fan of fashionable wrist sweatbands.
Tommy Pickles and Buttercup
I am so jealous of E.G. Daily!! She gets to be the voice of a Powerpuff Girl and a Rugrat!? I didn't think I could be anymore jealous of her and then I found out she was Pee Wee Herman's love interest in Pee Wee's Big Adventure! Pre-fapping scandal Pee Wee was so adorable...amirite?
