Disney Voicematches from A to Z by Tom Antonellis - 46 Impressions

Enjoy as I pay homage to Disney voice artists from every Disney movie from 'Snow White' to 'Mulan'

I set upon myself the challenge of an impression of at least one character for every letter of the alphabet (P for Pumbaa, K for King Louie, C for Cruella de Vil, etc). 46 voices in all inside of 4 1/2 minutes!

The video also features a voicematch/parody of David Ogden Stier's opening narration from "Beauty and the Beast" -- this video is dedicated to his memory.


Created by Tom AntonellisThick Skin Creations -- stay tuned for my latest album due this year:  "Tom Antonellis:  First Impressions." Also visit Amazon.com for more of my work:  the comedy CDs, "Tom Antonellis:  Laugh at or With" (not safe for work) and "Abbott & Costello Meet Tom Antonellis...At Christmas" (clean as a whistle).

Special thanks:  Ryan McClure (Tuff Cut Sound), Nomi Abadi (opening piano performance), Judy Maggs (sound support).

Tom Antonellis stars in new WageSpot YouTube spot

This new, cool spot for the app for WageSpot was such a pleasure to work on.  The WageSpot app is very cool to use and helpful to gain perspective on wage: something about which people are always so guarded. It was a blast making art with such talented and funny people as Tara Emerson and Joaquin Garay III and to work with director Anatoly Vaisman. Check it out and leave your comments below!

Peanuts might need to get out of their "shell"

peanutize yourselfOk, right out the gate, I want to say:  I love "Peanuts."  My family loves them.  I love Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Pigpen.  I love 'em all.

I was skeptical when they were being adapted for a film.  I was worried.  As worried as I have been for many an ill-fated remake/ reboot/ relaunch/ reworking/ reimagining/ retread/ whateveryouwanttocallwhat'shappeninginHollywood.

From what I can tell, I'm seeing some faithful renderings and treatments in this one.  I'm lowering my guard.

Then this great promotion came out where you can peanutize yourself.  Love it.  It's a little limited.  I was thinking to myself, well I can't quite fully peanutize myself, I've got a beard and then, of course, I reminded myself that I'm a "Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wahhhhhhh" adult and there shouldn't be a beard choice for a bunch of kid characters.  To peanutize yourself, you've got to revert to childhood.  No problem.

this is moreso meCool thing is, I don't take things lying down.  I really wanted to see me more realistically peanutized.  No problem.  That's what "Paint" is for.  I threw that bad-boy up in Paint, whipped a few browns, light-browns, and yes -- realistically -- some grey in there.

Cool.  I'm peanutized.

Then I wanted to share it with someone special in my life and encourage her to peanutize herself.  But I thought twice.  She spends a great deal of time in a wheelchair or on canes to help her walk.  That's not a quick fix in Paint.  That's something missing from THE WEBSITE where you can peanutize yourself.  An absence of facial hair that you're unlikely to find on a Charlie-Brown-aged kid makes sense to me.  (Of course, Charlie was famously bald -- not always something you see either.)  But you don't have to look far to find kids in wheelchairs or using canes.  Charles Schultz to the best of my knowledge never created a character in a wheelchair and that's ok.  Really, people, it is.  But a website encouraging everyone to make themselves over in a Peanuts image is sorely missing the option.  

Now, please, I'm not angry.  I am a little unimpressed by the team who put this website together.  I'm not sure who the company is behind peanutizeme.com but the film is being made by Blue Sky Studios.  I am going to reach out to them.  It will not be in a vitriol-filled letter.  It WILL be an open letter.  Actually, it will be an open-postcard.  That's all the space I need.  It's a simple request and, I would imagine, a relatively simple (and quick turn-around fix) that I hope they act on.  We'll see.  Leave a comment below if you agree this should be implemented.

Headed out to mail it now.  Here's the postcard (on my Thick Skin Creations card stock):
