an A-HA! moment

It's been driving me nuts, every time I see it- who does the voice of Brother in the Berenstain Bears animated series? I see it a few times a week, as Liam and I cuddle on the couch, blindly watching the Sunny Side Up Show on Sprout as we re-learn how to keep our eyes open and he drinks his milk. Every time it comes on I think, "Note to self: look up who does Brother Bear," because the voice is so familiar. And I always forget because the note gets lost in my mind as I try not to fall back asleep.

I can't trace back my steps as to which websites I visited and what lead me to Michael Cera's Wikipedia page, but I found it quite accidentally and it all makes sense now. MICHAEL CERA DOES BROTHER BEAR. (!!!)

This is of no general importance to anything, but it was definitely an A-HA! moment for me, complete with a pointer finger aimed skyward, because of course Michael Cera does the voice for Brother Bear! Who else's gentle, boyish voice could that have been? (Now, please erase any trace of creepiness about that sentence. It's also accidental. I know he's 20. I know I am 26 and married. I am just a fan of his work, and I am charmed by his demeanor.)

Brother Bear says, "Soccer is how I get my kicks!"

And Michael Cera is all, "Hi, I am ridiculously charming and I should be five to ten years older."

Here's an another kind of A-HA! (finger pointed) moment for all of you as well:

You can thank me in the comment section because didn't it make you smile???

And if you haven't already (because who hasn't??) watch Superbad and Juno. I will probably say the same of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist after I see it. And find Arrested Development on DVD because it's amazing.

Haha. My husband and I look up who does certain cartoon voices too. We also wonder what happens to certain people from certain television shows so we look them up on wikipedia all the time.
Oh and I'm a fan of Michael Cera too. And I'm 20. And married. lol.
I'm enjoying your blog as always!

Great video :) Sometimes I wish it was the 80's again LOL. I had my big A-ha moment with Handy Manny voice played by Wilmer Valderrama from That 70's show.
