Has this topic ever been discussed? It's about cartoon characters, puppets, or video game characters you thought was voiced by one voice actor but was actually voiced by someone else. I'll give a few examples:

When I was younger, I thought that Charlie Adler instead of John Kassir was the voice of the Crypt Keeper in "Tales from the Crypt" (both the live action and animated versions). In one episode of "Tiny Toons" which parodies "Tales From the Crypt", Buster Bunny does a dead-on impression of the Crypt Keeper. More ironic was that Kassir took over the role of Buster during the last few episodes (and the two specials that came afterwards) after Adler left the show in protest of not getting a role in "Animaniacs."

For some strange reason, I thought that Tom Kenny instead of Eddie Deezen voiced Mandark in "Dexter's Lab".

Also, I always thought that June Foray voiced Smurfette instead of Lucille Bliss in the 80s Smurfs cartoon.

In the Quick Draw McGraw cartoons in the early 60s, I thought Mel Blanc voiced Baba Looie (McGraw's sidekick) instead of Daws Butler.

Any other examples?

I have two examples:

1. I originally thought that Larry Moss (a one shot character on Vampirina) was voiced by Jim Cummings given how he sounded similar to Ray the firefly from The Princess And The Frog. In actuality, he was voiced by Bill Farmer. Listening closer, he does sound similar to Hop Pop from Amphibia, a character he voiced.

2. In Barbie: Big City, Big Dreams, I thought that Emmy's dad (credited only as Mr. Miller) was voiced by Steve Blum. He had that smug confidence that was reminiscent of some of Steve's roles (like Makucha from The Lion Guard or Amon from Legend Of Korra). In actuality, he was voiced by someone I hadn't heard of (Joshua Tomar).

And I thought Jim Cummings was Santa on The Class of 3000 Christmas Special, when it was actually Lil John.

Whenever I hear Uncle Grandpa’s voice, it has me thinking he was performed by Bill Fagerbakke, who voices Patrick on SpongeBob, turns out it’s actually Pete Browngardt, the shows creator, that does the voice.

1. Originally, I thought that Rob Paulsen voiced Johnny Bravo as opposed to Jeff Bennett.
2. I also thought that Kurtwood Smith voiced Hannibal Roy Bean in Xiaolin Showdown as opposed to Tom Kenny.

In Persona 5, I thought Morgana was voiced by Colleen O'Shaughnessy because it sounded like her Tails voice. In actuality, it was Cassandra Lee Morris.

At one point, I thought the Futurama character Zapp Brannigan was voiced by Phil Hartman before discovering that he was killed by his wife months prior to the series premiere and that Billy West voiced him instead by emulating Hartman's voice, which is interesting as the character was written for the late actor.

I always thought Zoidberg was voice by Maurice La Marche. I was surprised when I got the DVDs learning it was Billy West.

1. I thought the character of Pandora from Barbie: It Takes Two was voiced by Kari Wahlgren. She sounded like a mix of two characters she voiced before, Emma Frost from Wolverine And The X Men and Mrs. Carmichael (Leni's boss) on The Loud House. She was instead by Sarah H. Fairbrook (who doesn't have a lot of acting credits).

2. I once thought Phil Donut from Action Pack was voiced by John DiMaggio given how he basically sounded like Aquaman if he were a baker instead of a superhero. He was instead voiced by Jason Hightower.

This is a pretty sad time to be a WB and CN fan right now.
I don't entirely trust streaming platforms. Paying a monthly fee to watch some shows or listen to music that may one day disappear from the service for no reason, possibly to turn up on another service you have to subscribe to, all while they jack up the prices every few months or so.

It's just going to encourage people to watch stuff on pirate sites.
It's a good thing that Peanuts aren't owned by any major American company, and still has Schulz Family involvement. WildBrian and Sony Music Entertainment Japan have so far been good majority owners. (Hope this post doesn't turn sour in the future) Saying this after seeing the newest specials that have been done pretty well, whilst taking a risk of not just doing stories from the strips.
All of today's news about HBOMax and the whole purge remind me that CN used to be "the place to be" for me.

I'm old.
I'm just worrying about what shows CN will make under Zaslav lead
