    The book is a British book, so perhaps that's a British term for voiceover artist? I googled it and didn't get too many good results.

    Ah OK, thank you that does probably explain it. I've read British books about the media and they do use different terms. I was just caught up in being annoyed with the things the book did get wrong, heh.

    Well, remember during the olden days of cartoons? Usually, during the credits at the beginning, the voice actors were credited as "Voice Characterizations By".

    Like take old Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, you'd see: "Voice Characterizations By Mel Blanc". Likewise, other cartoons that were released theatrically, who credited their voice actors (I don't believe the classic Walt Disney shorts ever credited the voice actors), did similar things, such as DePatie-Freleng cartoons.

    When I watched behind the Looney Tunes section of behind the scenes, Mel Blanc wanted a raise, but instead they gave him credit to the screen that says, "Voice Characterizations by Mel Blanc."

    I remember seeing/hearing on an interview with Frank Oz on A&E's Sesame Street documentary that when people say "Hey you're the voice of Grover/Cookie Monster/Bert/etc," Frank responds "I created more than just a voice, I created a character." That should prove those who call Muppeteers "Voice Actors" wrong!

    Steve Fitmore is a great Kermit the Frog. See if you can find the mistake.

    How do you spell Kermit wrong? Seriously? Everyone knows it starts with a "C".

    But yeah, maybe they heard Steve's name once, and just sort of forgot how to say it. Or got it mixed up with another last name.

    When people call Oscarfan "Shawn".

    He IS a Muppet, right? It's so hard to tell... :o

    Someone just sent me the weirdest message on YouTube I don't even know where to start about misnaming Muppets. :confused:
  13. Mo Frackle

    Mo Frackle Well-Known Member

    I want to see! I want to see! But if it's too personal, you don't have to show us.

    I already deleted it it was so stupid beyond words. It was just bascially asking me really pointless questions. I'm sorry but when you send me a question about "Does Cermat the Frog do you have the song "it's so easy being green" or "how come Jason Spielberg isn't gonna be in the new Muppets movie" I'm pretty much just gonna not take you seriously.
  15. Mo Frackle

    Mo Frackle Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I wouldn't. Kind of makes me wonder if somebody reading this thread sent that. Hmmm....:confused:

    Well I have Muppet slideshows that I make on my account so I think that's why I get the questions. I even got one asking "why does Piggy go out of her way to make Kermit jealous." I'm just like *face palm*

    "It's So Easy Being Green" is a classic! Along with "Not Movin' Right Along", "Mahna Mahna - Don't don't don't don't don't", and "The Rainbow Disconnection".

    Or "The First Time You Know It Happens" followed by "Couldn't we Walk?"
