Other Things that the Actors have Done

Post

The Odyssey Actors have worked on many different shows and movies, so I thought would be interesting to make a list of the different movies/tv shows they have been part of.

To kick things off with tv shows, Alan Young, Hal Smith and Will Ryan were in the original Ducktales, as well as Mickey's Christmas carol. Alan of course played Scoorge (now done by David Tennant) and Hal played Flintheart Glomgold and Gyro Gearloose, Will Ryan played many of the one off characters. Jess Harnell has done voice over work for America's funniest home videos, and Pamela Hayden has been working on the Simpsons since it started (main roles is Milhouse, but has voiced about 50 'background' characters). Kimmy Robertson also appeared in one episode of The Simpsons as Milhouse's love interest. Will Ryan has also voiced Goofy, when the actor wasn't available.

Jess Harnell has played Wakko Warner on Animaniacs, Katie Leigh has been on Darkwing Duck as Goslayn's BFF, and JEss Harnel also plays Stuffy in DocMcStuffins. And Atticus Shafer plays Ono in the Lion Guard and the frog in Pete the Cat. That's all I know.

This is a fun thread!

Corey Burton voiced Count Dooku, Cad Bane, and *so* many others in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He plays basically every other one-shot character and I love it. Also Jason Spisak (Raymond Rydell & random characters) played Lux Bontari in The Clone Wars.

Earl Born voiced Mr. Bleakman on Clifford the Big Red Dog. Jess Harnell voiced Jorge in its spin-off, Clifford's Puppy Days. Additionally, Jess Harnell was in Wreck-It Ralph, voicing one of the game characters in Fix-It Felix. He has one line: "He'll wreck the party!" I think he has a few other couple-line roles in other Disney animated movies but I'd have to check to be sure.

In addition to Atticus Shaffer being on The Lion Guard, Justin Felbinger had a recurring role as a small elephant named Mtoto. Although I have only seen a few clips, Atticus Shaffer played Brick on The Middle.

I also noticed Hal Smith was credited as Philipe (the horse) in Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast.

Andre Stojka voices the King in Cinderella II and III. He does such an entertaining job lol. I also really enjoy his more emotional moments in the third film.

Those are the other roles aio actors have done off the top of my head, although I'm certain there are more.

I watched an episode of Talespin earlier today where Townsend Coleman played a radio announcer. It was only a line or two but it was definitely him.

I love Tmnt, so you can imagine how much I flipped when I found out he played Mikee in the 1983 version.

I've been watching more Talespin lately and it turns out that a lot more Odyssey actors played minor characters in the show.
Jerry Houser (Jellyfish)
Kenneth Mars (Fredrick Holstein)
Pete Reneday (Logan Smiler, Owen Birch)
Joan Gerber (Mrs. Rossini, Mrs. Hooper)
Phil Crowley (Mr. Burnette -Eugene's foster dad)
Hal Smith (Whit)
Alan Young (Jack)
Susan Silo (Agnes Riley)
Corey Burton (Cryin Brian Dern)
Brian Cummings (The Chairman, Columbus)
Pat Fraley (St. Valentine, Karno Wescott)
Whit Hertford (Jay)
and Jim Cummings who voiced the king in Darien's Rise plays a lot of characters in it too.
Talespin's a great show and it's fun finding a lot of voices I recognize. A few of these voices I never would have guessed came from Odyssey actors, but I recognized the names from Odyssey credits. Whit Hertford's character was before his voice changed and Pat Fraley's character sounds nothing like St Valentine.

Hal Smith appeared in at least 2 episodes of Hogan's Heroes. once as a scientist the Germans want to build a nuclear bomb, and once as the boss of a factory making cannons.
