The Voice Actor Connection Again
Sometimes the IMDB just plain breaks my brain. Going from one thing to another tonight, I landed on "Puff the Magic Dragon and the Incredible Mr. Nobody," which I remembered from a tape of things my Dad taped back in 1985 (including Pound Puppies, Star Fairies, and Huggabunch), and so I decided to see what else Robert Ridgely (the titular Mr. Nobody) had done. So it starts out pretty normal, the Hollywood Showcase Annoucer from That Thing You Do, a couple of episodes of Dexter's Laboratory, so on and so forth. Until I got down to the 80's. Turns out this guy was the original Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak! (Yatatatata yatatata!) And I never ever made that connection before. Don't really know why, either, since he's done a ton of stuff, especially in the 80's. So it just goes to show you, I suppose.
