perhaps better as a series?

"I Know That Voice" is a documentary that just debuted on Netflix. While many of you may have little interest in documentaries, this one probably will interest you as it's all about the faces behind those familiar voices in cartoons, TV voiceovers and videogames. So, unless you hate these sorts of things (and who does?!), you'll likely be interested in meeting these people and seeing what they really look like. It's interesting that RARELY do any of them seem like their characters in the least. For example, many voices of male characters are voiced by women and my favorite recent cartoon characters look amazingly unlike the people who provide their voices (especially the guys who provide the voices for Wacko from "Animaniacs" as well as "Johnny Bravo") . Additionally, these people have some wonderful behind the scenes stories, personal experiences and discuss how they got into this craft--and all of it is very interesting. And, there are also some wonderful surprises (such as Tom Hanks' lookalike brother who occasionally ALSO provides the voice for "Woody" from the Toy Story franchise).

Now the film is not perfect. There is one HUGE problem and that is that the film tries to do way too much. Squeezing so many different voice actors into one picture is tough, as many of them only get to say a tiny bit and many of these voice actors most famous characters aren't even mentioned. I would have either preferred they interview less voice actors and gave them more time to talk or, if possible, make a mini-series about them. I could easily see them make this much, much longer...and I would have really appreciated that. However, considering I thought it was too little...that is an indication that I really enjoyed what I saw.
