"THE 7D": The Voice Actors, Part 4

Here's Kevin Michael Ricardson (the voice of Happy) with The 7D series' casting director, Abigail (Abbie) D'Andrea.

Among other casting coups for the show, Abbie booked Jimmy Weldon, the voice of "Yakky Doodle" from The Yogi Bear Show (1961), to voice the role of Whoopty Doopty Schmoodily Duck in the upcoming 7D episode entitled "Bing Bong Beans."   Jimmy, pictured below, turned 90 last December and is going stronger than ever!


Abbie also brought in two of our very favorite voice stars to perform in various 7D episodes:  Tress MacNeille (Duck Tales, The Simpsons, Tiny Toons, Animaniacs) and Rob Paulsen (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain).  

These are just a few of the great casting choices made by Abbie during the first season of  The 7D.

"THE 7D": The Voice Actors, Part 3

And now, the bad guys of Jollywood...the comic villains in The 7D:
Jess Harnell (Grim Gloom) and Kelly Osbourne (Hildy Gloom)

Calamities in Jollywood are created by The Glooms, a pair of witch and warlock hipster newlyweds who spend their days and nights hatching and executing plots to overthrow the queen, take over the kingdom, defeat the 7D, and steal all the magic jewels in the 7D's mine.   

Dim-but-doting husband Grim Gloom is played by the always-rocking Jess Harnell.   Wakko Warner on Animaniacs is just one of his previous standout roles.  

And Grim's fiery and spirited bride is played by the fiery and spirited star of Fashion Police herself, Kelly Osbourne, in her first animated role.   (She nails it.)

A new pair of Disney villains are born!

Look out, 7D -- these two are trouble.  (And they're funny, too!)
