We could close our eyes and be able to tell you exactly which Nickelodeon cartoon character's voice it belongs to. But do you know the actors who are using their incredible talents to voice our beloved characters?

I'll admit it: I definitely don't. Below is a list of actors we can thank for bringing out favorite cartoon characters to life with their voices.

1. Elizabeth Daily as Tommy Pickles

Nickelodeon Show: The Rugrats

Fact: This talented lady also voice Buttercup in The Powerpuff Girls, which was one of my favorite cartoons growing up.

2. Charlie Adler as Bev Bighead

Nickelodeon Show: Rocko's Modern Life

Fact: Adler actually provided the voices for a myriad of characters in Rocko's Modern Life, including Ed Bighead, George Wolfe, Grandpa Wolfe, Gladys, Mr. Icck, Mr. Fathead, Mrs. Fathead, Tough Truck, Bosko, Skunk, Jaime, Dealer, Mr. Dupette. What a talent!

3. Tom Kenny as Dog

4. Toran Caudell as Arnold

Nickelodeon Show: Hey Arnold!

Fact: Caudell is also into the music scene, and even created the theme song for MTV's My Super Sweet 16. Did we mention how hot he is?

5. Nick Bakay as Norbert Beaver

Nickelodeon Show: Angry Beavers

Fact: Bakay is very close to Bill Fagerbakke, as they were roommates in college. In case you didn't know, Fagerbakke is the voice behind Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants.

6. Flea as Donnie Thornberry

Nickelodeon Show: The Wild Thornberrys

Fact: Flea is the legendary bassist for the ever-popular band Red Hot Chili Peppers. Give it away, give it away now!

7. Ray Bumatai as Tito Makani

Nickelodeon Show: Rocket Power

Fact: Bumatai is the older brother of comedian Andy Bumatai, and is also an accomplished guitar player and vocalist.

8. Debi Derryberry as Jimmy Neutron

Nickelodeon Show: Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Fact: This "brain blast" of an actress is also in a country band known as Honey Pig.

I don't know why I thought these actors would look more like their characters, but it's so refreshing to get to know the actor behind these incredibly famous voices.

But then again, there can't be too many people out in the world with actual "football heads."
