One of our all-time favorite actresses starred as a pampered pup named Chloe who gets separated from her human (Piper Perabo) while vacationing in Mexico in 2008's "Beverly Hills Chihuahua." Can you remember who she is?
Drew Barrymore voiced Chloe in 2008's "Beverly Hills Chihuahua." The former child star, who has a distinctive lisp, is a seasoned pro when it comes to voice acting. She voiced characters in 2006's "Curious George," 2000's "Titan A.E." and 1999's "Olive, the Other Reindeer" and portrayed Brian's off-and-on girlfriend Jillian on "Family Guy" from 2006 to 2013.
The 1981 animated tearjerker "The Fox and the Hound" centers around the unlikely friendship between a hunting dog named Copper and an orphaned fox pup named Tod. Hollywood icon Mickey Rooney voiced Tod, but can you remember which A-lister voiced Copper? Here's a hint: In real life, his color isn't copper — it's gold(ie).
Goldie Hawn's longtime partner Kurt Russell voiced Copper in the 1981 Disney cartoon "The Fox and the Hound." It's the first and only time the Emmy nominee has done voice work.
If you were a kid in the '90s, chances are you were obsessed with "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey." The 1993 animal adventure centers around three pets — dignified Golden Retriever Shadow, the appropriately named Himalayan cat Sassy and the newcomer to the family, immature American Bulldog Chance — who face incredible odds while traveling a great distance to be reunited with their humans. Oscar winner Don Ameche voiced Shadow, while Sally Field was the voice of Sassy. But do you remember which former teen idol voiced Chance?
Michael J. Fox voiced Chance in 1993's "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey." The five-time Emmy winner went on to voice title character in 1999's "Stuart Little," as well as the young hero Milo in 2001's "Atlantis: The Lost Empire."
Two well-known comedians have voiced Max in the animated "The Secret Life of Pets" franchise. Louis C.K. voiced the high-strung Jack Russell Terrier in the 2016 cartoon but got the boot from the 2019 sequel following a late 2017 scandal. Can you remember who took over the part?
Patton Oswalt substituted for Louis C.K. in the role of Max in 2019's "The Secret Life of Pets 2." The stand-up comedian is no stranger to voice acting, having voiced Remy in 2007's "Ratatouille" and Atom in 2018's "Teen Titans Go! To the Movies," as well as major characters on "Kim Possible," "Archer," "BoJack Horseman" and more.
The 2019 animal adventure film "A Dog's Way Home" centers around a young pup named Bella who travels hundreds of miles to reunite with her family. Do you remember which redheaded actress brought Bella to the big screen?
Bryce Dallas Howard voiced Bella in "A Dog's Way Home." It was the first time the "Jurassic World" star — who's voiced characters on TV and in video games — worked as a voice actress in a major feature film.
A two-time Oscar nominee voiced the title character in the 2008 Disney cartoon "Bolt." The animated comedy centers around the titular White Shepherd, an animal actor who mistakenly believes he has superpowers because of the role he plays on TV. Who voiced Bolt?
John Travolta voiced the titular pooch in 2008's "Bolt." He hasn't done any voice work since!
One of our all-time favorite rappers starred as police dog Max — a Rottweiler who teams up with Will Arnett's on-screen alter ego and goes undercover at a dog show — in 2018's "Show Dogs." Sadly, the buddy-cop comedy wasn't a huge "Money Maker" at the box office…
Ludacris voiced Max in 2018's "Show Dogs." It was the first time the "Fast & Furious" franchise star has worked as a voice actor — aside from a 2007 episode of "The Simpsons" on which he played himself.
]The 1995 animated adventure "Balto" is based on the true story of a Siberian Husky of the same name who worked as a sled dog on the Great Race of Mercy — a 1925 relay across Alaska to deliver the diphtheria vaccine to Nome, saving the lives of thousand from an incredibly contagious epidemic. Which A-lister brought the hero dog to life?
Kevin Bacon voiced the titular sled dog in 1995's "Balto." The "Footloose" rarely does voice work — aside from "Balto," he's only voiced characters in a small handful of video shorts and TV shows.
The actor who voiced Bailey — the loyal companion of Dennis Quaid's on-screen alter ego — in 2017's "A Dog's Purpose" (and its 2019 sequel, "A Dog's Journey") is a former Broadway star who shot into the spotlight after voicing a certain snowman in a widely beloved Disney cartoon…
Josh Gad voiced Bailey — in all his various iterations — in 2017's "A Dog's Purpose" and its sequel, 2019's "A Dog's Journey." The Broadway star scored a major breakthrough when he voiced Olaf in 2013's "Frozen."
Most '80s babies know and love the 1989 animated film "All Dogs Go to Heaven," which follows bad-dog Charlie B. Barkin as he escapes Heaven, returns to Earth, befriends an orphan and exploits her ability to communicate with animals to cheat at gambling. Do you know which iconic actor voiced Charlie?
The late great Burt Reynolds voiced Charlie B. Barkin in 1989's "All Dogs Go to Heaven." In fact, the cartoon German Shepherd was designed specifically with him in mind. The film's animators reportedly mimicked the iconic actor's mannerisms when designing the dog.
