The Backyardigans - Characters and Voice Cast

Characters and Voice Cast

Each of the five characters on the show have two voice actors: one for the speaking, and the other for singing. In the English version, all the voice actors and singers are actual children.

The dancing on the show is first performed by live-action dancers, and their movements are later transported to animation. Choreographer, Beth Bogush, describes the process: "What we do is we film the live footage in the studio, send that off and they do a Leica, and then they send it to the animators. The animators watch, and were pretty precise. What we film for that day is pretty close to what you see in the character."

Famous quotes containing the words characters, voice and/or cast:

    My characters never die screaming in rage. They attempt to pull themselves back together and go on. And that’s basically a conservative view of life.
    Jane Smiley (b. 1949)

    Mind not the old man beseeching the young man;
    Let not the child’s voice be heard, nor the mother’s entreaties;
    Make even the trestles to shake the dead, where they lie awaiting
    the hearses,
    So strong you thump, O terrible drums—so loud you bugles blow.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
