A couple of things, as a matter of fact. . . .

1. As it turns out, Jeff Bennett was actually the Centipede's singing voice in JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH . . . now that I hear it, I can't unhear it!

2. Apparently one of the reasons why Doug Walker decided to have Nostalgia Critic review less nostalgic movies and more modern, recent, and contemporary movies when he revived the character was because apparently reviewing nostalgic movies was something of a torch that had been passed on to Lindsey Ellis, aka Nostalgia Chick, and apparently Doug (and maybe Channel Awesome to an extent) felt there was no sense in having more than one producer reviewing the same kind of content (in this case, nostalgic movies and such).

I had no idea Jeff was doing the singing voice! But I do hear it now actually.

And now you will never unhear it! :stick_out_tongue: Now it makes me wonder if Disney had turned the movie into a TV series, since they obviously wouldn't have been able to get Richard Dreyfuss to reprise the role, would it instead have gone to Jeff entirely. It could work.

Terence Trent D'Arby legally changed his name to Sananda Maitreya, and considers the former to have been a phony persona that has since died.
