* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has played this straight in "The Great Money Caper" (Grampa Simpson, voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta, disguises himself by means of a latex mask as a judge, and speaks in a Judge Snyder-esque voice by HarryShearer) and "The Frying Game" (the old lady Homer thought he killed, Mrs. Bellamy, was voiced by Frances Sternhagen, until she [[spoiler:revealed herself to be Carmen Electra in a FullBodyDisguise]]). Given the range of several of the actors they also avert this a few times, such as when Otto disguised himself as the State Comptroller in "Lisa Gets an 'A'", Harry Shearer (Otto's regular voice actor) still supplied the fake State Comptroller's voice, but it sounded radically different from Otto, meaning you likely wouldn't guess it's the same actor unless told.
