Finding an actor with that special voice.
The late Mel Blanc was known as “the man with 1000 voices”. Whether it was “wabbit season” or “duck theathon” Mel was promulgating both sides of the argument. He also voiced Porky the porcine adjudicator trying to resolve the consistent disputes between D,D,D, Daffy and B,B,B, Bugs that “waskily wabbit”.
Add to Mel’s credits Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Sylvester, Tweety, the ever growling Tasmanian Devil and the constantly cackling Woody Woodpecker. Incidentally, that “wranger” of the woodlands was the first voice Mel devised yet it was seventeen years before he found the cartoon character it came to inhabit.
Advertisers know that one unique voice can help a product stand out in a crowded market. So around the recording studios, the search is constant and the message always reads voice actors needed.
When the voice becomes the message.
Communication experts will argue the medium is the message. If TV is the medium the visual component is paramount. But the costs are astronomical. However, for a fraction of the cost, you can use the voice-over from the TV commercial on the radio and the listener will play all the pictures in their mind.
When you hear the voice of James Earl Jones do you see Mustafa from Lion King or the inimitable Darth Vada? Does the unmistakable Scottish lilt of Sean Connery plunge you headlong into the world of Bond?
