This topic is generally one for anyone who can find very similar voices from Futurama and another cartoon, but specifically to ask if anyone else thinks that Maurice LaMarche's God voice in 408 - Godfellas sounds exactly like Johnny Cash's voice of the Space Coyote in The Simpsons 809 - El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer.
I compiled a mp3 of everything the Space Coyote says and everything God says in alternating fashion and the similarity is remarkable.  If anyone knows a way i can post the mp3 somewhere, i will, its only 1.77mb.
Also, guess who wrote The Simpsons episode in question?
None other than Ken Keeler!

Well ok this is one of my favourite thingies with cartoons, so here goes

Billy West ( this is the easy one)
Has been in so many cartoons is not funny-
He has been-
Ren
Stimpy
Muddy The Mud Skipper
Billy The Beeftalo Boy
The Red M & M
and the Pentium4 aliens
Apparently he is on Harvey Birdman but I dont know who...
He's also Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd (the new ones obviously)
the Chocaroaches from Joe's appartment
His voice is also the narrator on "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego!"
Pidge from Voltron 3d
Slimer from Ghostbusters cartoon series
The New Woody Woodpecker

Also in that one ep of Dilbert where we see the pointy haired boss's boss, that's Billy West too.
And in Pinky and the brain he was the special guest mouse, Larry

These are all off the top of my head- as u can see I'm a bit of a Billy West follower...

Maurice LaMarche's other voice talents include-
Brain from Pinky and the Brain
Yosemite sam (new looney tunes only)
and Fred Flintstone in Harvey Birdman
He's also the garbage man in Dilbert
Egon on Ghostbusters Animated
Dizzy Devil Tas in Tasmania

and finally of all things Willy Wonka on the Wonka's chocolate ads...

hmm I'm sure I can think of some more but not right now

He is indeed. I love Zoidbergs voice and on the commentary he does that slurm/worm creature with the high pitched voice. Great!

you are not going to beat Maurice LaMarche:
 http://us.imdb.com/Name?LaMarche,+Maurice

yosemite sam, inspector gadget, chief quimby, mortimer mouse, mickey moose, the Brain, kif, morbo, god, walt (mom's eldest son), numerous
other futurama characters, Egon Spengler, pepe le pew, orson welles, dizzy devil, scuttle (little mermaid), atleast 2 major Captain Planet villains, the official voice of Popeye, George Wilson (dennis the menace), George C Scott (Oh my groin!), mel gibson, the garbage man on dilbert (major character) and like 9000 other smaller roles.

Billy West has done comparatively few, but he is great.  Maurice LaMarche has rerecorded lines for movie stars who would cost too much to come down and respeak them.
But lets not get off topic here! =)

Billy West also played the Cheerios bee. Their voices are so similar it's scary. And this comment may sound dumb because evidence in past episodes says otherwise but do you think Smitty ,the peace cop, is related to Fry? They have similar face structures, voices, and I'm sure there was a scene where he took his helmet off and he looked like an almost carbon copy of Fry. I know in SP3000 it says Farnsworth is his only living descendant ,but still compare some clips of the two sometime.

By the way, incase anyone didn't know, Ken Keeler also wrote 408 - Godfellas.
so to recap:
Ken Keeler wrote the Futurama and Simpsons episode in which "God" and the "Space Coyote" have almost the same voice, and they both have the same "role" in the show.

The voice of the Security Camera in Insane in the Mainframe is the same voice as the Who-Ask machine in Anthology of Interest II

Frank Welker and Phil Lamarr both did voice acting for various characters in the Xbox and PC videogame Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. So did:

Ethan Phillips (Neelix from Star Trek: Voyager),
Jason Marsden (Haku from Spirited Away), and
Ed Asner (Newsroom boss-guy on the Mary Tyler Moore Show)

UPDATE!

I'm sure most of us are aware of the old "inspector Gadget" animated TV show that ran a while back. I was perusing IMDb.com, and lo and behold, tow familiar names popped out at me. It seems that Frank Welker provided the voice of both Brain (the dog) and Dr. Claw (the bad guy). Maurice Lamarche provided the voice of Cheif Quimby, Inspector Gadget's superior in the police force.

And the guy who played agent Smart in the 60's spy-spoof "Get Smart" was the voice of Inspector Gadget himself. Small world... at least when it comes to voice acting.

No surprise. After all, only a few people are able to come up with different voices on a constant levél...
