POP QUIZ: THE (CARTOON) VOICES IN MY HEAD
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
I got paid for doing voice work once. I appeared on an episode of the cop show “Flashpoint”, and after shooting, they decided they wanted to change one of my lines. I had to go into a studio, record the new line as audio, and they edited the film so you couldn’t see my lips when those few words were being spoken. My recording session lasted maybe fifteen minutes.
My favourite part? Because it was a brand new line, it was considered a ‘new performance’ and I got a full day’s pay for that fifteen minutes. Good times, good times.
The folks in this quiz, I’m sure, are sitting back and raking in that sweet voice acting money all the time.
Each of the images below shows a character from a popular TV cartoon. There are three points available for each image: The character, the show on which the regularly appear, and (the hard bit) the actor who does their voice.
So that’s a score out of 30. Lots of points available. Remember, you can get twenty of them without knowing a single voice actor!
