The Five: TV people and the cartoons they remind me of

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 17th 2006 9:00AM

teevee setSometimes I make weird associations in my head. That's really the only introduction I can think of that would explain why I've been amassing a list in my brain of all the TV stars who remind me of cartoon characters. This is the result of my research:


Ray Romano sounds almost exactly like Marvin the Martian. Despite this, he never once threatened to blow up the Earth simply because it was obstructing his view of Venus. Perhaps if he did I might have actually watched his show.

Larry David, if you add a moustache and catch him in the morning right after he wakes up, kind of looks like The Professor from Felix the Cat.

Jamie Hynerman of Mythbusters bears more than a passing resemblance to the little janitor who ends the "Peabody's Improbable History" segment on the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon.

Speaking of Peabody and Sherman, if you combine the DNA of the learned dog with that of his faithful pet boy Sherman, you get Stephen Colbert. Don't argue, this is science, people.

Lastly, we have Conan O'Brien, who is clearly Beany from Beany and Cecil all grown up.

If you think of others, throw 'em down in the comments.

Wilfred Brimley is the personification of Yosemite Sam, in light of the amount of ads he does i suppose he qualifies as TV People

I don't know if this counts because the character is a Muppet but have you ever looked at Sam Donaldson(the reporter) and Sam the Eagle (from the Muppets) they bear more similarity than the eyebrows.
