Lawrence Shapiro reveals the voices behind some of the more famous cartoon characters of the past 20 years in his documentary I Know That Voice. The actors he talks to span the media gamut, from animated series and commercials to movies and trailer reels.
Interviews include Futurama stars Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg) and John DiMaggio (Bender), Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) and old school voice actors like June Foray (Rocky from Rocky and Bullwinkle). The documentary spans from the greats like Mel Blanc to today’s voice acting world.
We were disappointed to not see Tress MacNeille anywhere in the trailer but here’s to hoping that she shows up. If you didn’t know, MacNeille was involved in tons of animated fare that we grew up on in the 1990s, from the Rugrats and DuckTales to Gargoyles and Animaniacs. You might also recognize her as a number of voices from The Simpsons.
At the moment there is no release date for I Know That Voice but i’s expected to come out sometime in 2013.
