I have a total fantasy to voice a rad cartoon character. How awesome would that be? I can't believe people are lucky enough to have a career doing that for not just one, but tons of cartoon characters. I'm especially envious of this lady, Ms. Tara Strong:
The only thing more ample than her cleavage is the roster of rad characters she voices! (I can say that because I'm a girl, right?) Here' a look at 10 of them!
Seriously? Don't we all want to be a Powerpuff Girl? And Bubbles is the perfect combo of sassy and sweet, plus I think we all know she's the cutest. I would love to play her, just to give Octi one long animated hug.
So we go from the sweet-voiced Blossom to the very abrasive Truffles. That's some range! The executive producer of Chowder has said that he based this character on his mother. When Truffles screen time was recently cut he said that the reason for the cut was that 'a little Truffle goes a long way'. I guess that's why he doesn't call as much anymore, mom!
Ben Tennyson- Ben 10
Ben Tennyson is voiced by a chick? WHA?? Ben found the Omnitrix which allows him to turn into ten different aliens. Has Tara Strong found something that has allowed her to turn into a kabillion different convincing cartoon voices? Very interesting thought...
Terrence-Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
Okay another dude? This girl is good! But Terrence is not. He is very, very bad. How do you bully Mac? I'd rather be covered in acne and sporting a mullet than do that. I guess Terrence prefers doing both!
Timmy Turner-The Fairly Oddparents
Okay here's the freaky thing...not only does Tara voice Timmy, she also voices the much-hated Poof. So she kind of jumped the shark on her own show or something like that.
If I took one of those teen quizzes 'Which Teen Titan character are you?' I would totally get Raven. I would in fact answer every question in a way that would guarantee I got Raven. I know how those teen quizzes work! Plus she's super connected to Robin, who I have a wee animated crush on. I know, I'm not proud of that fact.
I know Britina isn't a major character on Kim Possible, but she is definitely a memorable one. Facing animated jail time is still probably super scary! I bet Tara put the Kim Possible episode 'Trading Faces' on her Emmy reel.
What??? Another majorly annoying and useless baby character? (Suck it, Dil lovers! :P) That is not a good genre to excel in! Although I realize now that I have an unreasonable hatred for a lot of baby characters. I must have a hostile womb.
Mary Jane Watson--Ultimate Spider-Man
Probably the best part of playing animated MJ is that animated Peter Parker is played by Drake Bell. I would need to do a lot retakes on those makeout sounds. My Drake crush is less creepy now that he's been an adult for many years. Right? RIGHT?
Twilight Sparkle- My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
This is the only Twilight Sparkle that I approve of. Eww, I just got a chill thinking about an animated Twilight series. If that should happen, please don't add Renessme to your resume of annoying offspring characters, Tara. Thanks so much for listening.
