    Pellett has been working in radio since 1980. During his time at Bloomberg radio, the MTA asked voice artists at the station to record announcements for the trains.

    Kearin and Lawlor were the first two to create Simlish for The Sims, and they also provided the voices for The Sims 2. Most Simlish isn't a word-for-word translation, but instead an improvisation of sounds based on an emotion the voice actor is trying to convey.

    You know that voice that tells you to take small children by the hand when you step on a moving walkway or makes the announcements that start with "the local time is..."? That's Carolyn. She's the voice of the PA in over 200 airports worldwide, as well as the voice in some subway stations and emergency weather bulletins.

    14. Tony the Tiger β€” Thurl Ravenscroft

    Marvelous Auto Classics /, Kellogg's

    In addition to voicing Tony the Tiger, Ravenscroft is a Haunted Mansion alum. You can see him as one of the singing busts on the attraction (the one detached and falling over). You've probably also heard him during the Christmas season, because he's the original singer of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch."

    15. Kool-Aid Man β€” Frank Simms

    Great Big Story / Via, Kool-Aid / Commercial Ads /
