* {{Tobuscus}} is a man of many voices and accents, as evidenced throughout his work. Too bad he seems incapable of remaining in them for very long. He has also been told by genuine Aussies and Brits that his [[FakeBrit imitations of their accents]] are awful.

* The English dub of ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' features Creator/AnnaPaquin as Sheeta, and her accent varies between American and New Zealand for much of the movie.
** Her Mancunian accent in ''Anime/{{Steamboy}}'' slips from time to time.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Disney Dub of ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', Sheeta's accent seems to wander between Canadian, British, and Kiwi. The only thing consistent is that she sounds different from everyone else, who just use American accents.

* In ''King Lear'' Edgar adopts a variety of personae to keep an eye on his brother’s plotting, and later to protect his blinded father Gloucester. At one point he switches from “West-Country Peasant,” and Gloucester <i>notices</i>:
Methinks thy voice is altered, and thou speak’st
In better phrase and matter than thou didst.

* In a Carnegie Hall performance from 1962, Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett sing a cowboy-themed duet called "Big D (Dallas)"; Julie's attempt to sing with a Texas draaaaawl is arguably just as embarrassing as the fake-Cockney that Dick Van Dyke would do a year later in ''Mary Poppins.''

* In the Donmar Warehouse production of ''{{Cabaret}}'' (as seen in the 1993 TV movie), Adam Godley is a very American Cliff Bradshaw. Until he gets upset. Then he's a very Irish Cliff Bradshaw. Made even stranger by the fact that Adam Godley isn't even Irish to begin with.

* Olivia in ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective" has several different accents at once. English? Scottish? American? Who can tell? (Olivia's voice actress was actual Scot Susanne Pollatschek, while her dad was voiced by Alan Young - who as Scrooge [=McDuck=] must have sorted his accent out by then.)

* In early episodes of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', Yugi's accent in particular had a tendency to wander, most notably in the episode where he meets Mako Tsunami. It's gotten quite a bit better since, though there are some telltale signs if you're paying attention (notably, over-pronouncing the letter "t" and enunciating the "g" at the ends of "-ing" words).
