Not only is Ice-T a rapper and an actor, but apparently, he’s also quite adept at doing cartoon voiceovers. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he re-voiced characters for The Magic School Bus, Arthur, and Scooby-Doo.
"I had no clue that your voice was in these. Watching them now, I think I can hear it a little bit," Jimmy Fallon said.
"Gotta hustle man," Ice-T said in response. "That was just a way of getting money, paying the bills."
In a clip of Arthur, Ice-T played Arthur, who responded to Buster Baxter’s dad when he inquired about who broke a cake plate. "Bitch, man the fuck up," Ice-T, as Arthur, said. "Ain’t you ever heard of crazy glue?"
The best clip was of Scooby-Doo, though, with Ice-T playing Shaggy. When Velma asked Shaggy what was behind his ear, he said, "What the fuck? Probably one of Scooby’s fucking chew toys we got at PetSmart."
The clips are pretty hilarious—and the whole thing seems to be a running joke between Ice-T and Fallon. The rapper appeared on The Tonight Show in 2015 and 2016 and showed his knack for voiceovers early on. On Wednesday's episode, the two also had a sing-a-long to their kids’ favorite cartoon theme song, Paw Patrol, and briefly sang the theme song to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
In addition to playing "Fin" Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Ice-T has also been releasing music with his heavy metal band Body Count recently. The group just dropped an album in 2017 called Bloodlust. In 2018, Ice-T is set to release his first solo studio album in 12 years, which is going by the working title Criminal Vortex.
