Most Easily Recognizable American Voice Actors

While watching television or doing something in any form of media, you may have an itch in your ears and in the back of your brain after hearing a certain voice that will have you wracking your brain wondering where exactly you have listened to it before. Voice actors and actresses are what makes up our animated shows and games; they are what brings the characters to life; so taking note of their voices is as easy as taking note of actors themselves.

Although some voice actors and actresses may be more noticeable than other's; some have such a big range of their voice that you would have never guessed the same person did them.

Here are some of the most interesting and noticeable voice actors in American media, enjoy:

Frank Welker:


Frank Welker's natural voice sounds the most similar to a well-known teen and dog from the years of ghost hunting; aka, Fred from Scooby-Doo. Although his roles for Fred, Megatron from Transformers, Dr. Claw from the Inspector Gadget Cartoon, and later on Scooby-Doo himself are more notable; his most omnipresent talent is used when it comes to much smaller voices. He voices creatures and various animals alike, all characters in a range of almost sounding either babyish, petlike, or just like gibberish.

Abu, Raja, and the Cave of Wonders from Aladdin and Max the dog from The Little Mermaid are good examples of this. But, more than likely if you have seen a noisy dog, cat, or another kind of creature on a cartoon, more than likely you are listening to Welker in action. A good example of this is Slimer from the Ghostbusters cartoon.

He's also played Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in the video game Epic Mickey 2: Power of Two.
