Interesting post! I often thought about how the voices were familiar, but I never really thought to look them up! The only one I was really familiar with was Cheech!

I knew a few like Cheech, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, but none of the others. It was fun researching it and finding out who they all were. Thanks for the comment. :)
