Familiar Voices – Eeyore Prime? Bethany Boop?2 min read

You ever hear a voice on T.V. or in a movie and think it sounds familiar?

I was sitting here working on the laptop just now, and my daughter was watching Winnie the Pooh. I swore that I kept hearing the voice of Optimus Prime (from The Transformers movies).

Finally, I started paying attention and realized that Eeyore and Optimus Prime sounded almost exactly alike. I went to Google and did a search for “Transformers Optimus Prime Eeyore” and quickly discovered that my ears were spot on – the voice actor, Peter Cullen is the voice of both characters! Pretty cool.

Upon browsing his IMDB page I discovered he was also the voice of KARR, the evil twin of KITT of the Knight Rider T.V. series, of which I have always been a huge fan.

Just how much of a fan am I?  My bio on this blog is “A young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law”. That’s from the opening narration of Knight Rider. 😉

(Note: Don’t be confused – the narrator of the SHOW is not Peter Cullen, it was Richard Basehart)

Then, as I am looking around for images and clips for this blog, I discovered that there may be a reboot of the show! That would be cool!

Bethany Boop:

Several years ago, while watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (one of my favorite movies) I noticed Aunt Bethany’s voice sounded familiar, but couldn’t place it.

I did a search and discovered Mae Questel was also one of the voices of Betty Boop!

What voices have you spotted?
