    Falkor from Neverending Story sounded like Man-at-Arms

    For those who grew up watching NES, who else noticed as a kid that he sounded just like Man-At-Arms? well later on as a teen in the mid 90s when the internet was around, i did research then found out it was Alan Oppenheimer.

    I can't tell you how many times I've watched that movie during my life (even recently), and I NEVER noticed! Wow! He was so ingrained in my memory as a unique character that I loved - even named multiple pets after - that I never thought of his voice as anyone's but his own. I almost always recognize Alan Oppenheimer's voice acting, but not this time. I dare say, I love the character even more, now!
    Some remaining, post 2017-Reveals, WANTS:

Blast...and hoping to someday see a Fright Zone with Slime Pit!

    Yep, MAA or a much friendlier Skeletor. Of course, I was older when that movie came out and recognized a lot of the voice actors.

    Yeah, I was watching that a few months back, and for the first time noticed who the voice actor was. Falkor sounds somewhere in between Man-At-Arms and Battle Cat.

    As a kid, I never even knew that Falkor was Skeletor! I didn't even know Alan voiced Falkor until Power Con '13.

    He also voiced Gmork who sounded like an evil Battlecat and Beastman.

    Hahaha! I introduced my 10-year-old niece to this classic film on my birthday, and OMG, like others here I've sene this movie lots of times, but I never noticed! Now that you point it out, Falkor does sound like Duncan!

    This was really surprising to me---I never "heard" Alan in G'mork's voice before. But now that you mention the comparison, if I think about it I can kind of hear Beastman and Battlecat a bit in G'mork's voice.

    What a very, very talented voice artist...
