Funny Comedians Turned Into Cartoon Stars

Comedians in Animated Films - Do you ever watch a cartoon and wonder who’s the funny voice behind it? We have compiled a list of the most popular cartoons that also happen to be some funny comedians. Sometimes it’s shocking to find out who the voice behind the carton really is.

One of my favorite comedians who plays a voice in a animated film is Jack Black. He is the voice of Po in the movie Kung Foo Panda. Po is a young, clumsy, overweight panda, and a kung fu fanatic who idolizes the Furious Five. This popular movie opened in 4,114 theaters, grossing $20.3 million on its opening day and $60.2 million on its opening weekend.

Next in line of famous comedians who put their talents to the test in a cartoon film is Robin Williams. He was the voice of the class cartoon called Aladdin. Aladdin is a Disney film which came out in 1992 and became a box office success, earning over $217 million in revenue in the United States, and over $504 million worldwide.

Other popular animated films that have famous comedians as voice overs are:
Adam Sandler – 8 Crazy Nights
David Spade – Emperor’s New Groove
Sarah Vowell – The Incredibles
George Lopez – Rio
Jerry Seinfeld – Bee Movie
Woody Allen – Antz
Eddie Murphy – Shrek
Ellen DeGeneres – Finding Nemo

There are many other notable cartoons with successful comedians. These were just some of the highest box office success.
