Pikachu basic language:

Pikapi = Ash

Pika-Pikachu = He says this when referring to himself

Chaa = Anything he says happily or excitedly

Pi? = What?

Pi-ka = Yes

Pi-Ka-Chu? = Are you okay?

Pikaaaaaa-chuuuuuu = Thunder attack

That's the basic stuff. I can't believe I wrote this.

Wait till you hear about a programming language that only uses one word- Chicken

Edit: Ignore the bot comment below. I pasted the wrong link at first.

u/WikiSummarizerBot Nov 23 '21

Chicken (Scheme implementation)

Chicken (stylized as CHICKEN) is a programming language, specifically a compiler and interpreter which implement a dialect of the programming language Scheme, and which compiles Scheme source code to standard C. It is mostly R5RS compliant and offers many extensions to the standard. The newer R7RS standard is supported through an extension library. Chicken is free and open-source software available under a BSD license. It is implemented mostly in Scheme, with some parts in C for performance or to make embedding into C programs easier.

didn't the original voice actor just record a bunch of different lines for Pikachu and then just brought back for super unique lines every now and then? she definitely still makes bank everytime they use her voice regardless I reckon.

u/coffemixokay Nov 23 '21

Voice actor who specializes in animal sound is in high demmand.

It looks silly but the supply isnt much compared to other voice acting role.

80

u/S-r-ex Nov 23 '21

Just look at western animation. If a show has a funny animal sidekick in it, it's probably Dee Bradley Baker.

u/IISerpentineII Nov 23 '21 edited Nov 23 '21

Dee Bradley Baker also voiced the Gravemind, which did not make funny animal sidekick voices.

u/Memedotma Nov 23 '21

and also every clone trooper in TCW

25

u/Plain_Tortillas Nov 23 '21

DBB voicing the clones, in my personal opinion, is one of the best displays of acting I've ever seen. The way he's able to give each clone a unique personality while maintaining the same voice is truly impressive. There are entire episodes where it's just him (or at least very close to it).

June Bellamy : Relax, Homer. You'll do fine. I'm June Bellamy. I do the voices of Itchy & Scratchy.

Homer : You? But you're a lady.

June Bellamy : [as Itchy]  She's a lady, all right.

June Bellamy : [as Scratchy]  A beautiful lady.

Homer : [laughs]  Hey, that really is you. How did you get to be so good?

June Bellamy : Oh, just experience, I suppose. I started out as Road Runner.

June Bellamy : [as Road Runner]  Meep!

Homer : You mean "Meep, meep"?

June Bellamy : No, they only paid me to say it once, then they doubled it on the soundtrack. Cheap bastards.

Roger Myers Jr. : You folks ready to begin?

Homer : Uh, I guess. Is this episode going on the air live?

June Bellamy : No, Homer. Very few cartoons are broadcast live. It's a terrible strain on the animators' wrists

u/arczclan Nov 23 '21

Funnily enough, The Simpsons would go on to air a live 3 minute segment almost 20 years later

2

u/vantlem Nov 23 '21

What? How so? Wouldn't they need to animate characters in sync with audio etc?

2

u/arczclan Nov 23 '21

It’s all digital, using Adobe’s Character Animator tools. Basically allows them to create a series of presets and digital assets that can be manipulated on screen with button presses.

They then streamed the footage live with Dan Castellaneta providing improv’d audio

u/Bowdensaft Nov 23 '21

That's actually really clever, I'll have to look that up.

Do they make bank though? I remember it was a huge thing about the guy who had the lead role in gta4. He did a couple of days/weeks voice over to record it getting an hourly rate.

Potentially if the talent has some kind of royalty deal for dvds and merch and syndication and stuff but that would be unusual if they did.
