* Henry Winkler of ''Series/HappyDays'' fame, in addition to his character Arthur Fonzarelli, usually voices suave characters whom everyone admires. However, in ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'', he voices the principal, Willard Deutschebog, who's a pathetic loser whom everyone mocks and abuses.

** Creator/HannaBarbera, famous for their StrictlyFormula cartoon featuring {{talking animal}}s, fantastic adventures and comedy, tried their hand at SliceOfLife shows without anything magic/supernatural/anthropomorphic and where {{reality ensue}}s: ''Series/{{Devlin}}'' (featuring three siblings working in a circus) and ''These are the Days'' (depicting the life of a WidowWoman, her three children and her father at the very start of the 20th century).

* Company example: Creator/SabanBrands is usually known for action-adventure shows like Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers. Hence it's completely unusual when they produced WesternAnimation/JuliusJr, a SliceOfLife show.

* James Hong, veteran character actor and better known as cheesy, LargeHam villains in various kung fu productions (particularly Lo Pan of ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''), appears in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' instead as the clueless, GeniusDitz noodle-making goose Mr. Ping. Meanwhile, ActionGirl Creator/LucyLiu gets to be the sweet-natured, kindly Viper.

** And would you expect a man known for villainous, GutturalGrowlers to do a pitch-perfect interpretation of '''[[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Barney Rubble]]'''? Not the deep voice that audiences are more familiar with, mind you, but the high pitched, nasally voice from the first season of the original cartoon!

* Nathan Lane's most famous animated role is Timon from ''Disney/TheLionKing'', the sarcastic comic relief sidekick, and is generally known for being a comedy actor. In ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'', however, he plays the role of Preed, a slimy, treacherous villain who, though he has his FauxAffablyEvil moments, is played ''dead seriously''. And Lane pulls it off better than you'd think, too.
