Popular Black Animated Characters That Were Voiced By White Actors

Carl Carlson and Officer Lou – The Simpsons

In addition to the other characters he voiced for, Hank Azaria was the voice behind Carl Carlson and Springfield’s police officer Lou. He recently stepped down from playing those two roles to make way for actual black characters to voice them instead.

Dr Hibbert – The Simpsons

Harry Shearer was the voice of Julius Micheal Hibbert, M.D., better known as Dr Hibbert, in The Simpsons but recently announced he wouldn’t be the voice for Dr Hibbert anymore as he’d rather a black person plays that role. He’d still be a part of The Simpsons family playing the role of the other characters he’s been voicing for.
