When watching cartoons, it's hard to figure out who the voice actors behind all the characters are. We're so invested in the storyline that we don't even realize a famous celebrity is behind one of our favorite cartoon voices.

It's fairly obvious that Eddie Murphy voices Donkey in Shrek and Ellen DeGeneres voices Dory in Finding Nemo, but not all cartoon voices sound just like the voice actor.

Here are 12 well-known celebrities who were behind some of the most famous cartoon voices, and you didn't even know it!  

1. Fergie - Sally Brown in The Peanuts

I couldn't have guessed this in a million years. The world first heard the American pop singer's voice when she starred as Sally Brown in The Peanuts. But if you watch the video below of Stacey Ferguson as a kid singing, it won't be so much of a surprise.

2. Oprah Winfrey - Eudora in The Princess and the Frog

The talk show host is no stranger to acting, but no one could have guessed that the character of Eudora, Tiana's mom, was played by the billionaire herself! In hindsight, who would have been better to play that role? Oprah's name is now on the list of the first voice actors to be a part of a Disney African-American princess movie.

3. Whoopi Goldberg - Shenzi in The Lion King

Whoopi's voice is quite distinct, but if you're fully engrossed in the movie, you may not connect Shenzi's voice to the actress.

4. Vin Diesel - The Iron Giant

Before Vin Diesel became one of the most recognizable faces on The Fast and the Furious, he voiced the robot in The Iron Giant. He was great at producing all those guttural sounds, which probably prepared him to take on the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.

5. Robin Williams - Genie in Aladdin

You'd have to watch this movie again to hear Robin Williams's familiar voice. It's not that he doesn't sound like himself, but when you watch this movie as a kid, you're just completely mesmerized by the Genie that you don't even put two and two together.

6. Bruce Willis - Spike in The Rugrats Movie

You're telling me that the man who starred in The Sixth Sense, Die Hard, and The Fifth Element voiced Spike?! The goofy dog only barked in the TV series, but in the The Rugrats Movie and Rugrats Go Wild, Spike had a lot to say, and thanks to Bruce, his character got a little more interesting.

If you thought these last six weren't obvious, you're going to be seriously confused by these next ones!

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm?

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
