I'm going to take a wild guess and say they were voiced by the same person.

However I have no idea who that would be.

Anyone else got something?

OK add to the mix Dennis the Menace when he was briefly on TV in an animated cartoon.

Trying to gin up a little angst. :)

Tell you tomorrow sometime.

Ready?

All of these male characters were voiced by women. You might know that Bart Simpson is famously voiced by Nancy Cartwright. But did you know that obnoxious goofy laugh of Woody Woodpecker was voiced by a woman? (Grace Stafford)

Charlie Brown stands out from the pack. Charles Schultz insisted the characters in his TV specials be voiced by actual children. And they were. Each cartoon featured a different set of talent, as they were produced several years apart and of course the kids would grow up.

Well, sort of. Woody was originally voiced by Mel Blanc, then for eight years by various males, and only after his first ten years by a woman. Two women at different times, actually.

And there ain't no T in Charles M. Schulz. But we love you anyway.

Can you imagine taking a gal to a party and she lets out a laugh like Woody?

Of course it's all an act, but still....

Carl, are you fact checking me? :rolleyes:

Wade, Carl fact checks everyone, he hasn't singled you out LOL.

I do indeed fact-check just about everyone. Especially, I fact check-myself. Sometimes, fact-checking myself is a bit embarrassing.

Example: for decades I knew, absolutely, that a pint of water weighs exactly one pound. There's an old saying, A pint's a pound the world around. Once a friend (W4DSW, Don) claimed he knew that was wrong, that it was more than a pound. I disagreed somewhat pompously and obnoxiously. Then, I fact-checked myself, finding to my surprise that he was right. Don still ribs me about it.

Wednesday I'm having cataract surgery on left eye, then two weeks later on right eye. Don will transport me to and from, both times. I'm sure to take a little ribbing.

A US pint is about 1.04 US pounds, and an Imperial (British) pint is about 1-1/4 Imperial pounds.

All my life I've been an amateur student of military history, and for example thought I knew something about the Gallipoli operation in WW1, in which the British sought (unsuccessfully) to take Constantinople by amphibious assault. It was a fiasco, with the Brits committing many classic errors. I've studied it for fifty years at least. Last month I found out I've been pronouncing Gallipoli wrong my whole life long.

Live and learn.

Good luck on the eye surgery. DW had both eyes done (not at the same time) a couple years ago. Putting drops in the eyes for the couple weeks after is kind of a PITA, but all was successful.

After it's all done you will have a better outlook on life LOL.

Perhaps the pound means currency and not weight? :2cents: How much does a pint cost? A pint of really good ale, what ever that might be. :beer:

No; the reference is definitely to weight and volume, of water specifically.

Since engineers are famous for estimating, I would have said. " close enough to a pound". It's only 4% off.

Close enough for mixing kooolaid and iced tea.

However, if it involves a really critical life safety issue, then estimates are not appropriate.

I am with Carl, I though a pint was a pound also.

PS- good luck on your surgery, hope everything goes well.

good luck on your surgery, hope everything goes well.

Did the left eye two days ago; today I was able to drive around a little, in light traffic, in daylight. Since I have always (since age 7) worn thick glasses, but won't need them after both eyes are done, the two eyes are very different right now. I can get around with the bare left eye, or with my old thick glasses on the right, but can't use both eyes simultaneously until after surgery on the right eye, 01 March. So on the way to lunch with a bunch of hams (we lunch together every Friday) I stopped at the bank for cash, then at a drugstore to buy an eye patch (like Moshe Dayan or Sammy Davis Jr). Driving with only my left eye turned out to be very fatiguing. Ain't gonna drive at night for a while.

The surgery went well. I've known for about four years that I needed to do it. During those four years I asked every doctor I saw about my ophthalmologist's reputation; all said he's the best there is, and no one clammed up or got evasive. Then an old friend (my first Judo instructor in College in 1963), who recently retired after forty-plus years as a pharmacist, asked me whom I expected to do my surgery. I told him, "Tony Weaver". He said he had filled prescriptions for every doctor in North Florida for years and years, and could tell who was having problems, from the prescriptions he filled. Tony Weaver's patients, he said, never have problems. He's the best.

So I'm pretty sure the guy cutting on my eyes is the best around. That's very reassuring.

That's always a good sign.

My son had lasik surgery when he was 20, he was incredibly near sighted. Things worked out fine, he doesn't use glasses today.
Just wish he didn't jump out of airplanes so much (Army paratrooper).

I'm looking at cataract surgery sometime, dr stays I have a few years left before I need it.

I'm sure you are looking forward to having both eyes completed.
