I don’t know that I would call these bizarre facts. Interesting maybe, if you are a child of the 80s and 90s, but not bizarre.

Nancy Cartwright had a book: "My Life As A 10 Year Old Boy". Funny how Johnny Bravo was fought for by women as he seemed mysoginistic, as far as would be gone in a cartoon context. Disney was said to be a Massive Nazi sympathiser.

Bugs Bunny. There's an urban legend that Mel Blanc was allergic to the carrots he munched on while recording for Bugs Bunny cartoons. Mel Blanc repeatedly stated that he was not allergic to the orange vegetable. He did, however, spit out chewed carrots into a bucket in between takes.

Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny only appeared together in one Looney Tunes cartoon, "Corny Concerto". Also, whether or not Sylvester could speak varied depending on who was his owner, Granny or Porky Pig.

Tim Curry. Too scary to voice the Joker, and yet ended up voicing Nigel Thornberry, on a more child friendly cartoon. Pennywise was part of children's Saturday mornings for years on The Kid's Network.

OK, first, how is it 'sad' that Magneto wasn't played by some obscure voice actor instead of motherfucking Sir Ian McKellan? Dude. Think first, then speak. Second, his name is not Peter Lore. it's Lorre, like the British word lorry.
The 90's was a confusing time for cartoons 😂😂

The Winnie the pooh characters are based on mental illnesses:depression, mania, narssism, anxiety, gluttony. Christopher Robin was schizophrenic, he saw anthropomorphic animals and they talked to him.

The Simpsons was the first adult orientated cartoon show, that was initially commissioned to be aired around the commercial breaks, during The Tracey Ullman Show, 17 December,1989. Critics of the show have often complained that some of the themes are not suitable for children- forgetting this is not Tom & Jerry and nor is it meant for broadcast on the children’s network.
Dee Degon (9 months ago)
Ren and Stimpy, Simpson's, Beavis and Butthead, and Archer.
Ray Chang (9 months ago)
I loved a Japanese cartoon called G-Force (Kagaku Ninta-Tai Gatchaman) or sometimes just Gatchaman. The US-branded voiced-over show was called Battle of The Planets. The character Mark was voiced by Kasey Kasem, as my sister pointed out. I didn't even know it was originally Japanese until my Dad pointed that out reading the credits at the end. I also loved another show Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato). The voice actor (Eddie Allen) for the enemy leader (Leader Desslok) had no idea that the show was even being watched/loved. Many years later he attended a reunion of some sort to a nearly teary-eyed bunch of fans. It's amazing how something like that can stay with you for nearly your whole life. Great video, guys!

I thought Batman would be on this list. The other characters you mentioned is interesting.
How can people not know that Bart is voiced by a woman? Children in series are always voiced by women. That knowledge is so basic - that's as if you just said "most people don't know that potatoes grow underground"

From what I can recall, the reason GI Joe’s death was changed to a coma was due to the reaction of the death of Optimus Prime in the 1986 Transformers movie.

Not your best list honestly. These facts werent exactly "bizarre". Oh wow, Bart Simpson and Chuckie Finster were both voiced by women! Everyone knows that. Hell you didn't even mention that Christine Cavanaugh is dead! She was a childhood icon behind the scenes and her death barely made a blip on the evening news. A damn shame if you ask me

Here's another fun fact about the Warner sister Dot. The creator of the Warner Brothers actually does not have a daughter and the third sibling was originally going to be a boy similar in design to Wakko's with a somewhat more down to earth personality closer to that of Yakko's. However it was decided that having three male main characters pretty much left out the female demographic as well as would have left a lot of untapped comedy potential. Thus the Warner sister was created instead.

I knew about Paul winchell...he was also a.famous ventriloquist. I think he did Mortimer snerd. It's not Charlie McCarthy because that's Edgar Bergen. 25 is obvious if you watched reruns of Andy Griffith and. 3's company...edit Jerry Mahoney and knucklehead smiff(not Smith) pop pop used to call me that.
My favorite cartoon character comes from a little known Canadian show called Kevin Spencer, his name is Allen The Magic Goose, the title character's imaginary best friend and trouble-maker. Another character I like from that show is Kevin's dad Percy Spencer's superhero alter ego Drunken Welfare Man. The show's for adults as there's shit-tons of drugs, booze, sex, swearin' and excessive violence, the title character Kevin is a 16 year old chain smokin', alcoholic sociopath and his mum's a drunken whore.

*Kenny from South Park is based on a real childhood friend of 1 of the animators either Stone or the other1 I don’t remember he dies a lot in the show because the actual Kenny whose name is actually Kenny used 2 skip school a lot & every1 in school would say Kenny died he was also poor *In the Disney Comics Donald Duck is the sole air 2 Scrooge McDucks fortune he even stole his Uncles fortune by the help of his Cousin Gladstone after he got on a fight with his Uncle over ruining his peanut 🥜 selling business Gladstone agreed 2 help after having an agreement with Donald that he would leave Daisy 4 ever it was altered in the next issue that he only agreed 2 leave her for 1 year he then felt sorry & gave Scrooge his money back💰 *The Simpsons has 1 of the highest sound cast death rates in an animated series if not the highest they also have a policy of not recasting voice actors so if a voice actor dies his characters die/retire with him *Though Flintheart Glumgold the rival of Scrooge McDuck is a fellow Scot in the cartoon show Duck Tales in the comics he's a Borbin South African but because the cartoon was shown in the 90s with racial tence in South Africa between Blacks & Whites they didn't want 2 show Glumgold as a rich White South African so they made him Scottish
