|The voice of Bart Simpson-Nancy Cartwright|
Another suitable answer would be Nancy Cartwright. She's the voice of Bart Simpson. When the series first became a hit, many were surprised that Bart's voice was being done by a woman.
Years ago, Nancy took a big chance, packed up her beat up car in Dayton, Ohio, and headed to California. She was lucky enough to study under the legendary Daws Butler, a master of animation voices. He originated the voices of many famous cartoon characters, including Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound. What an education she got from Mr. Butler. Not to mention landing the gig of a lifetime. Her book, "My Life as a Ten Year Old Boy" is a fun and informative read.
Thanks for bringing the book to our attention, John. I didn't realize Nancy had one out. I'll have to check it out.ReplyDelete
I still remember many years ago, just as the Simpsons were gaining popularity, that a friend of mine who is a Christian singer, had some voiceovers in a part of one of his songs... and Nancy was one of them... sounded like Bart Simpson on this Christian CD. :)
Most welcome Dave! Very interesting about the Christian CD.ReplyDelete
I did not know that - interesting!ReplyDelete
Now when I hear George and Gracie, I'll know the backstory. Thx, John!
I just recently discovered that the BART voices actually have names Dave.ReplyDelete
