This week we're featuring animation voice artists, like Clarence "Ducky" Nash, in the Connection Finder.

Featured alongside him are other voice artists:

Who are you most closely connected to? If you're one of the 22,678,000 of us who are connected to each other on our big tree you can check with the Connection Finder.

You can check for shared ancestors with the Relationship Finder. Are you a cousin to any of them? Your Relationship Finder Quick Links page (see your profile pull-down menu under "Relationships") has quick links for several notable groups.

Let us know below! If you want to share your connection on social media with cousins and friends, click the "get shareable image" below the results, e.g. Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe. Then just upload it along with the URL of your direct connection. (Please refrain from sharing your connection on the featured profiles, though. It clutters conversations on research and collaboration. Thanks!)

P.S. Help us choose and improve profiles for next week's feature: Slapstick Comedians!

We moved you closer, so Sterling is tied with Pinto Colvig now.
Thanks Karen. I see that I am now closer on three of the profiles.

I'll see your 26, and raise you to Pinto Colvig at 24. smiley

I'm not really close to anyone - 35 degrees to Clarence Nash is my closest. However, last week I was working on connecting Andrea Caselotti and my (38 degrees) connection goes through the branch of our tree I was able to link up (Frances Chard) which is very, very satisfying.
by David Smith G2G6 Mach 2 (21.4k points)

Ooh, I added a bunch of sources to the George Cooper you linked to Frances Chard. It is really satisfying to make a new link. You're still pretty far away though! We'll have to see what we can find to pull you in.

I do love connecting but can't find many connections for myself. sad A few of my ancestors are on WikiTree, but only the first I found was connected. By joining them up to my branch of the tree, they usually get their connection.

You're much closer to the last three now, but still not closer than Dick Jones. It was neat to see all the work David did on his bio.
Thanks Karen!

I'm 18 degrees from Dickie Jones and not related to anyone on the list.  My daughter was hoping we'd be related or most closely connected to the voice of Minnie Mouse who is one of her favorite characters. smiley

by Beth Gonzalez G2G Crew (720 points)
I wonder if we could learn about Russi Taylor's parents? It would be fun to get you and your daughter connected to her more closely. Hopefully you at least got a little closer with the changes to Wayne Allwine / Mickey Mouse's Bandle family.

Clarence Nash was my Uncle.  My mother's sister was married to him for many, many years.  We had wonderful times together at family gatherings.  Although when we were young, we were a bit scared of the large Donald puppet he would bring out to entertain us!
by Cynthia Rhine G2G Crew (740 points)
Amazing! That's pretty funny that the giant Donald Duck was scary rather than amusing.

How could you Leave OUT the voice of the great MEL BLANC? Mel Blanc, who acted the voice of Bugs Bunny and over four hundred other characters, appeared in three thousand cartoons and animated film shorts. From Yosemite Sam and Daffy Duck to Mister Magoo and George Jetson, he made an enduring contribution to the art of voice animation.

by Anonymous Spencer G2G1 (1.9k points)

Mr. Magoo was voiced by Jim Backus.

Agree about Mel Blanc. But he needed a proper bio written.

Aw... several of us worked hard to find connections for Mel, so you can still look and see how you're connected to him. But we did overlook his bio - I'll put him on my list to improve that.
We have had support anchors with NO bio.
Thanks for all your efforts!! : )

Oh, and, we could have also featured Mel Blanc, and one other, but we went from the more recent ten profiles featured, back to the old eight profiles featured.

It's no surprise that I am closely connected to Clarence Nash (22 degrees) through my husband.

Fun fact: My husband can also create the voice of Donald Duck.

Update as of 06/13/2021: I'm 22 degrees from Sterling Holloway via my paternal side.

You know it's gonna be a sad day when Rob Paulsen passes away. The guy has voiced:

Raphael and Donatello from two iterations of the Ninja Turtles.

Pinky and Yakko Warner from Animaniacs.

And so much more.

 And let's not forget about Frank "Megatron" Welker, Tara Strong and Peter "Optimus Prime" Cullen and other voice actors from my childhood. But, did you know radio host Casey Kasem voiced two Autobots in Transformers? It's true!

Now then, who am I closely connected to? Adriana, the voice of Snow White! She was uncredited in her role. Wow....
