A Very Long Guide to Famous Film-star Voices in Cartoon Movies



This is a guide to every major animated feature to feature famous
movie-star voices, and thus it’s also in effect a list of practically every
major animated feature since the 1980’s. In the old days big name actors
rarely went near cartoons, and there were voice artists who specialised in
bringing to life cartoon characters; people like Sterling Holloway, who
played Mr. Stork in Dumbo (1941), Kaa in The Jungle Book (1967) and
Winnie the Pooh in several films, or Phil Harris, who played J. Thomas
O'Malley in The Aristocats (1970) and Baloo in The Jungle Book (1967).
These days, however,  it’s almost taken for granted that any animated
features will be crammed with voices we all recognise. Here’s a guide
to who’s been in what. Films are listed by year and then alphabetically.
