Muppeteers who voiced cartoon characters

    I remember hearing some of the Muppeteers voice some cartoon characters.

    In some of the Sesame Street cartoons.....

    There was a cartoon called Flossie and Splat. And it sounded like Kevin Clash did the voice of the short purple monster called Splat. And in the cartoon, find the animals on the monkey's jungle T-shirt, it sounded like Kevin was doing an elephant.

    In the cartoon, Tall Tall Texan, I could hear Jerry Nelson voicing the Short Short Texan. Also in the cartoon, Lucky 13, Jerry was doing the singing western rat.

    And Baby Bear's cartoon, Hero Guy, that character was also voiced by David Rudman.

    Jim Martin also lent his voice in a few SS cartoons. Like a chalk drawing bird in 12 birds and a movie director in a 12 cartoon. And a few cartoon characters in The Puzzle Place.

    Victor Yerrid who is not only a puppeteer, he also seems to do voices for shows like Robot Chicken and Drawn Together.

    In Monsters Inc. Frank Oz did the voice of Fungus, the red monster with glasses and lots of eyes.

    Sheep in the Big City had a lot of Sesame Street Muppeteers doing voices. Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Joey Mazzarino, Fran Brill, and one time, Jerry Nelson.

    Do I count? I was only a Muppeteer in one film, but I've also done cartoon voices.

    I was in Disney's "The Rescuers". I voiced the French delegate in the mouse U.N. and also the singing voice of the Dutch lady who hits a clinker and everyone looks over at her.

    I was on a few episodes of Hanna-Barbera's animated version of "The Little Rascals" and I did a voice in H-B's "What A Cartoon" series on a cartoon called "Yucky Duck". I also did a voice on the internet cartoon "The Kellys", which appears on Nascar.com.

    Wow, I remember watching Yucky Duck a few times and I'll have to rent The Rescuers to watch that scene with your characters in it. And I'll check out Nascar.com soon.

    I'm a big fan of cartoon voice artists and I'm honored I got to talk to one right now.

    And yes, I can count you as a puppeteer who did a cartoon voice.

    Peace 2 U! :)

    Wow, that's pretty darn cool! As a child, I loved The Rescuers. I used to sing the Rescue Aid Society song all the time. ;)

    OH! I almost forgot... Fran Brill guest starred in two episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog. She played "The Fishonary" in episode number 36 "Fishy Business"/"Angry Nasty Business", and the "Stitch Sisters" in episode 38 "The Quilt Club"/"Swindlin' Wind".

    The "Zathura" robot, though not a cartoon character, is voiced by Frank Oz.

    Bill Baretta's the man. Retrospectively, you could say Frank Welker voiced a cartoon character who was a puppet! :)

    I just found out that Karen Prell once did the voice of a baby unicorn named Unico in two anime movies. The Fantastic Adventures of Unico and Unico on the Isle of Magic.

    So Fran's got her own website? Cool. Not much IMHO, but it's cool to listen to some of her work outside of the Muppets.

    I guess I'm just the opposite... I've done voice-overs mostly for video games and industrial/educational videos, but I want to be a Muppeteer!!

    I just found out that puppeteers, Drew Massey and Dan Milano did voices on Robot Chicken.

    Leslie Carrara voices Wendy White on Poochini as well as Mrs. Takamine on Zatch Bell.

    Julianne Buescher also voices characters on Zatch Bell, the characters Zabas and Alm. As well as Bebe Cahill on the Weekenders and lots of other animated movies.

    And on a cartoon called Tigersharks, I believe Camille Bonora voiced the characters Octavia, Angel, Hydra, and Soulmate.
