** Ironically, it was the ''lack'' of cast showoffs that sank TheMonkees when word got around that the cast didn't play their own instruments, though Peter and Michael were actually gifted musicians and Mickey became a passable drummer ("It's not brain surgery" as he put it). Davy never played anything more complicated than a tambourine.

* Very common in any anime that requires a character to sing, as the greater majority of [[NamesToKnowInAnime voice actors]] in the anime industry posess some form of talent in singing, regardless of whether they were in a music group beforehand or not (and many were and still are).

* John Goodman is an adept impressionist, as seen in his many ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' hostings, so ''{{Roseanne}}'' frequently had Dan launch into one-line impressions or whole routines as anybody from De Niro and Brando to all [[Film/TheThreeStooges Three Stooges]] or even Julia Child. It worked pretty seamlessly as Dan was a film and TV buff and usually just being the fun dad for his kids and wife. He also sings during the course of the show, as does Bonnie Bramlett.
