Default Jetlag Productions' Children's Classics

This thread is dedicated to Jetlag Productions' versions of classic stories, all produced around 1994. First, I want to look at their take on Pocahontas. The cast list is the same for each feature, so you may not find everyone listed, but here's who to keep an eye (or rather, ear) out for:

Tony Ail
Nathan Aswell
Cheralynn Bailey
Kathleen Barr
Garry Chalk
Lillian Carlson
Ian James Corlett
Michael Donovan (also the voice director for the series)
Kent Gallie
Phil Hayes
Roger Kelly
Ellen Kennedy
Terry Klassen
Joanne Lee
Andrea Libman
Tom McBeath
Lois McLean
Scott McNeil
Jesse Moss
Doug Newell
Richard Newman
Crystaleen O'Bray
Doug Parker
Gerard Plunkett
Susan Sciff
Raouel Shane
Scott Swanson
Venus Terzo
Louise Vallance
Wanda Wilkinson
Dale Wilson

Feature: Narrator (1.57), Pocahontas (2.48, 7.55, Kathleen Barr?), Mr. Barlow (3.43, 11.27), Captain John Smith (3.48, 3.58, Michael Donovan, I think), Towanaka (5.02, 6.04), Chief Powhatan (5.05, Dale Wilson), Tonkana (5.17, 5.49, 10.44), Niwa (7.52, 8.03, 13.39), Nabori (9.30, 16.48, 17.02), Running Deer - way to break the naming convention (11.14), English soldiers (17.08, 36.07), Doctor (31.35), Big Bear (32.10, Terry doing his Bora?), Lookout (37.07)

Next up is the second version of this story to feature an Ocean cast:

The Jungle Book: Raksha (2.37, 3.56), Father Wolf (2.43, 3.13, Michael Donovan), Wolf Cubs (2.50, 3.46, 46.06), Tabaqui (3.06, Terry Klassen), Shere Khan (8.34, Donovan again?), Akela (11.48, Terry again?), Baloo (12.45, Donovan again? How often is he in this?), Bagheera (13.26, Dale Wilson), Mowgli (15.32, 20.12, 34.16), Kaa (22.31, Terry again - they don't seem to have pushed the boat out in casting for this), Chil (23.52), Monkey (25.16), Young Wolves (28.29, 28.41, 44.47), Boy (35.48), Old Man (35.54, 36.31 - oh, nice, they're bringing his mother into this; you don't see that with most adaptations, 40.00 - and we're getting the caste system; again, something you don't see very often, 40.34), Mesua (36.52), Grey Brother (42.30)

I have to be honest, their dub of the Soviet version was better.

I came across this old thread while snooping around for Jetlag shows, didn't realize these were available on YouTube. I see some more progress has been made and some of them have entries on the site now, but I can give them a go and see if I can peg down more voices if you want.

That would be great. I can only ID the obvious, so any help would be appreciated. Also, anything with a question mark means I'm not sure, so feel free to confirm or deny. I've certainly had to revise a few.

Default The Cast

As usual I figure it's best to start by breaking down the cast. Lets start with the known quantities:

Kathleen Barr, Garry Chalk, Ian James Corlett, Michael Donovan, Phil Hayes, Ellen Kennedy, Terry Klassen, Andrea Libman, Scott McNeil, Jesse Moss, Richard Newman, Venus Terzo, Louise Vallance, Dale Wilson, Doug Parker, Gerard Plunkett

Then we have the ones who only have some voice acting credits or mainly live action ones. I've tried to spitball their proximate age range at the time:

Kid/Teen: Cheralynn Bailey, Crystaleen O'Bray, Tony Ail

Adult: Suzin Schiff, Tom McBeath, Wanda Wilkinson, Scott Swanson, Doug Newell, Kent Gallie

Old: Lillian Carlson, Lois McLean


And the ones that have no other credits of substance:

Raouel(Raquel?) Shane, Joanne Lee, Roger Kelly, Nathan Aswell


Going to try to track down voice samples of those I can find.

Pocahontas
https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com...cahontas-1994/
Don't have much to add here beyond I think Nabori is Michael Donovan. Niwa, Tonkana and Running Deer don't sound familiar, I would look for them among the less prolific castmembers.


The Jungle Book
https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com...gle-Book-1995/

Additions would be:

Ellen Kennedy - Mother Wolf, Chil, Messua
Terry Klassen - Young Wolf 1
Michael Donovan - Boy, Grey Brother

I don't think the current entry having Dale Wilson as Old Man/Buldeo is correct. I think it's Michael Donovan again. But other than that I agree with what listed.

So I'm thinking the main cast looks something like:

Michael Donovan - Narrator, King, Prince Richard, Voldar
Kathleen Barr - Whisteria, Grace, Odelia/Old Woman
Stevie Vallance - Melody, Primrose, Princess Felicity

I think Felicity matches well with the sound clip of Lair in Ys.

For the Queen, Amorata, it's likely either Suzin Schiff or Wanda Wilkinson.

Schiff in Seven Days: https://vocaroo.com/gH82dIyULUl
Wilkinson in Highlander: https://voca.ro/iyXwcF43yGA

I actually think Wilkinson is a reasonable match.

I expect the rest of the fairies are played by Vallance and the Queens VA, just need to go over them a bit more closely.

UPDATE: Wanda Wilkinson - Queen, Aura, Terpsicord, Amorata

The easy ones are:

Richard Newman - Narrator, Big Bad Wolf
Michael Donovan - Thrush, Beaver

I'd say I'm leaning towards the mother being Suzin Schiff.

As for Red Riding Hood herself, the likely candidates would Andrea Libman (Roll, Ikuko), Cheralynn Bailey (Little Orphan Annie), Crystaleen O'Bray (Blitzy). I think Libman is a bit too high pitched, not sure about the other two.

The grandmother is likely either Lillian Carlson or Lois McLean, I'll try to dig up some voice samples.

No idea about Fawn.

UPDATE:
Cheralynn Baley - Red Riding Hood
Suzin Schiff - Mother (might also be Grandmother)

Mostly obvious:

Michael Donovan - Narrator, Prince, Hedgehog (Yellow)
Kathleen Barr - Wicked Queen, Snow White, First Disguise, Third Disguise
Ian Corlett - Magic Mirror, Sunbeam (Light Red), Tadpole (Dark Red)
Gerard Plunkett - Huntsman

And it was just a wild hunch, but I think the Second Disguise and Robin (Purple) is Tom McBeath. He's better known as Col. Maybourne on Stargate SG-1, and there's plenty of clips of him on YouTube. He probably plays one of the squires and maybe one more dwarf, but it's hard to tell outside his regular speaking voice.
