    yea, i think we all knew that already.

    the 80's cartoons all basically had the same 18 actors/actresses.

    Yeah, not that hard to believe. After all, Casey Kasem and Don Messick did an assload of voice acting, and Frank Welker has been a VA in basically every cartoon ever made, so there's bound to be some overlap between any two shows from that era.

    The number increases even more if you count people who've worked on single episodes or scooby doo specials.

    It was a very small crowd of voice actors back then. Hell, look at all the different shows they all worked on.

    I'm not gonna lie. There's a G1 episode (can't remember which one) where Ratchet laughs his ass off at the tail end, which resulted in me laughing my ass off. I was floored and thought "Oh cool, one of my favorite cartoon characters voicing a 'Bot? Awesome!". :D

    Indeed. Look at Peter Cullen OP and Ironhide in Transformers, the original voiceof Eeyore and the narrator King Alfor and Coran in Voltron, and Commander Hawkins and againthe narrator in Vehicle Voltron, and Venger from Dungeons and dragons and lot more.

    Yeah, Frank Welker is in everything and Casey Kasem's voice acting credits is a long list in his own right.

    I'd be more surprised if they DIDN'T have voice actors in common.

    I had the same reaction at the end of the episode "Traitor" with Cliffjumper laughing like Shaggy, lol. Is that the one you mean?

    Cullen was not the original voice of Eeyore. He did his for the TV shows.

    Optimus Prime was not only Venger but was also on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends as Red-Skull (i watched that show on reruns in it's 88 weekday afternoon run), the Admirel on Ducktales, one of the 2 brothers from Filmation's Ghostbusters, on Bravestarr, Monty on Rescue Rangers and so many more.

    Thanks to this thread I looked up Casey Kasem's resume of voice acting and realized that "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo" came out in 1988.

    So thank you for indirectly making me feel incredibly old.

    Frank Welker is like the Ron Jeremy of voice actors.
