    Yeah... I just think it's funny when male characters are portraied by females in foreign language Dubs. If anyone's interrested, I also found the Japanese dub voice actors for Cotterpin Doozer, Philo and Uncle Matt (it's the same person that does both voices), as well as Robbie Sinclair... I even found Coolio's Japanese Dub voice for a Muppets Tonight episode.

    It's not all that far fetched really. Half of the boy voices on The Simpsons are done by women. :smirk:

    Isn't Winnie the Pooh's voice done by a woman? or am I wrong?

    Heehee, that's funny stuff, good find, but that doesn't make Wembley a chick. I remember watching TMTM in German (don't ask why, that's what boredom does to ya) and Scooter's voice was dubbed with a woman's one. A lot of male characters are.

    Heehee, I know, I have this thing about watching shows in different languages. ;) I could actually understand a bit what they were saying in the German version.

    So is he voiced, by a woman, as a man? Or is he voiced as a woman?

    I know that in America one of the Bob the Builder characters is female, while that character is male in England. Is this similar?

    No wonder Japanese children are so confused...

    Muppets Take Manhattan has a few different language audio tracks. I can't remember which language it was but in one of them Janice is clearly played by a man. Yes I know, American Janice is played by a man too, but this foreign Janice was clearly not made to sound anything like a woman! Lol, I think someone got confused.

    Here's another interresting Japanese Voice dub fact...

    The same person who does the dub voice for Junior Gorg is the same dub voice for Homer Simpson!

    Great thread title. Definitely made me laugh out loud! These responses make me think I need to start watching my favorite shows/movies in foreign languages. My simpsons DVD got stuck on french once. That was interesting.

    Wrong... Sterling Holloway (think its spelled correctly) is a guy... TOdays is the same guy that does Tigger's voice...

    and Lets not all forget... Howie Mandel did Skeeter's voice in Muppet Babies.
