The Lyrics

V.O.= voice over. Selected by Matthias for the 2nd Amiright Parody Challenge competition.
We’re gonna do this next parody with a topic that I don’t think has been done before.

(Matthias:) Yeah, the notorious C.I.A.!

Heck no, this is a tribute for an underrated group that really has one comin’!

(Matthias:) Yeah, tool box makers!

Nah dude, I’m talking about cartoon V.O.s, ya nit!

(Matthias:) Huh? ‘V.O.’?

Who does those cartoon voices?
Who does those cartoon voices?
Who does those cartoon voices?
Who does those cartoon voices?

Watch on TV or DVDs
The new cartoons or just the oldies
There’s folks who give these drawings personalities
Won’t you sit down please hear some testimonies
Bout the folks on the tables who do a faceless theater
Stand at the mike and talk and go home three hours later
Reruns of Simpsons are what’s happening
Cartoon Network and on Nickelodeon
It started with our mousey name of Mickey
To Barney Rubble and up through Spidey
It surprises me which actors have done ‘em
Like the strange occurrence of Shaggy done by Casey Kasem
They do the voices, these folks are the best
Whether playing Bart or Goofy, they all really impress
But here’s an outrage, now here’s the bomb
No Oscar or Emmy nom!

Spinach ain’t refused when the fight is on
Popeye got aplomb when Jack Mercer sang his song
Buggin’ out was Mel Blanc’s eyes
Did the Looney Tunes, boy I wish he was alive
Walt Disney gave us Mickey, what a thrill
Slimer or Decepticon, Frank Welker kills
And sweet Mae Questel joins the group
Flirt around through town as sexy Betty Boop!

Voice tracks, they did it
And some did get well paid for it
Voice tracks, they did it
Don’t treat them like scum
Voice tracks, they do it
And don’t you dare forget it
Voice tracks, they do it
Let me show you some

Daws Butler you know I just can’t underrate
Invented many voices on Hanna-Barbera’s plate
Ludwig Von Drake in another predicament
Amazing voice Paul Frees had, wasn’t it?
Arthur Bryan was who they were calling
Elmer Fudd’s voice when he went a-hunting
Need a Granny today? Get Ms. June Foray
She was Rocky Squirrel that you knew back in the day
Speak of Bullwinkle (Bill Scott the star)
Paul Frees as Boris had yet another part
Our man Clarence Nash as Donald, quite Ducky
There was Jon Kricfalusi, was the Ren to the Stimpy
Made many Nickelodeon shows, and it was sublime
But when they complained it wasn’t fam-ly time
They sent Jon K out and relied on Billy West
On Futurama, did the rest

All the Warner sibs got a riot on
Jess Harnell, Tress MacNeille and Rob Paulson
Don Adams not with Get Smart spies?
Tennessee Tuxedo, Inspector Gadget thrives
Mike Judge heads the family, King Of The Hill
Kathy Najimy as wife Peggy still
Then there’s Grace Stafford, in the ‘hood
She gave us a Woody as a Woodpecker would!

Voice tracks, they did it
And some did get well paid for it
Voice tracks, they did it
Don’t treat them like scum
Voice tracks, they do it
And don’t you dare forget it
Voice tracks, they do it
Let me show you some

Daws Butler’s Huckleberry singin’ out with the drums!
(Huckleberry Hound: “Dum de dum de dum!”)…(4x)

(Scatman Crothers, 1910–1986, the voice of Hong Kong Phooey:)
Ho, ho, ho, ho! How it be goin’, whippersnappers?

Hey kids, here comes Scatman! Hey Scatman, what’s up?

(Scatman:) Hoo-ee! Workin’ on “The Shining” with Jack! What a showcase!

Hey Scatman, you’re so rad! Give us some kung-phooey, man!

(Scatman builds up…:) Allright! Hiiiiiii—YAAAH! FANRIFIC!

(“Hong-Kong Phooey” theme sampled in the 4-count breakdown)

Spongebob’s on the loose—Tom Kenny is on
Who’s Winnie The Pooh? Sterling Holloway, gone
Doing it now, dude, Jim Cumming tries
Better as Darkwing Duck and creepy Disney bad guys
Now Ms. Nancy Cartwright, hey now here’s a whirl
Truth is now out, Bart Simpson’s a girl!
Scooby Doo’s Don Messick, re rink he’s real rood!
These are the faceless actors out in Hollywood!

Voice tracks, they did it
And some did get well paid for it
Voice tracks, they did it
Don’t treat them like scum
Voice tracks, they do it
And don’t you dare forget it
Voice tracks, they do it
And we’re almost done

(Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson:)
Dan C. doin’ Homie!
Dan C. doin’ Homie!
Dan C. doin’ Homie!
Dan C. doin’ Homie!...

Nice work Aggy. 555

A very insightful parody at some of our favorite cartoons! I swear you and me Aggy, we have a toon fetish or something, but I can honestly say I haven't done.... Flintstones, Spongebob, Jetsons, or even The Simpsons or Family Guy yet, but there's still more parodies to write.

Awesome job! Loved all the mentions, and you forgot John DiMaggio and Simpsons and Family Guy. But yeah at least every cartoon anyone watched as a kid had the people mentioned in this in it.

Th-th-th-that's great, folk. :-)
I'd love to have done a voice-off vs. Bill Scott with my locally--well, extended-familially, anyway--(in)famous Bullwinkle-voiced rendition of Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods On a Snowy Eve." Tho' also widely known to be amusingly singable to the tune of "Hernano's Hideaway," a it sounds in ihs voice as if it were specifically written for the moose. Try it. :-)

having worked as an editor in a pubs dept. off the record, my voice became known for personel- training videos; the Video guys had some fun making these wacky videos . . .

Matthias - March 31, 2008 - Report this comment
Like I said before this was very intresting... It wasn't LOL funny, but it was very good nonetheless, and I'm also glad of the variety of cartoon characters you did from Mickey Mouse to Futurama... Very good selection.

Wow...I can just imagine how much research and effort went into this one. If I had been given this one in the comp, I might have slit my wrists. It was really clever and cool. Great job !!!!

(Challenge) I agree with Matty here, Ag....while not super-funny, an incredible well-written, clever and epic piece. 555

Holy hell! That was freakin' epic! Loved how you worked in Scatman Crothers - he was the original voice of Jazz, yay! 555 for you!
Matthias - June 26, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with what I originally said, not super hilarious (But with the original song being super hilarious it's hard to beat). Still it's very entertaining, and educational nonetheless.

Interesting that a V.O. would be a parody because in a sense the parody is actually a V.O. to an OS. I like the idea here and the execution is spot on

(ABC) This is such an epic tribute to cartoon voice actors. . .having already read it, you know what I think.
Invisible Boy - July 09, 2008 - Report this comment
I'm still very impressed with this Agri. I'm a very big fan of "research" parodies because I know how much work it takes to write one. So, again I say...Great Job !!!

(ABC) Holy Wikipedia, batman - that's all I ever need to know about cartoon voiceovers in one sublime hit - so Casey Kasem did Shaggy? - I'll always remember I learnt that snippet here, Ag - impressive work

"She gave us a Woody as a Woodpecker would!" was a great line. This must have taken a LOT of research and effort, and it shows. Very Outstanding, Aggy. 555.
