Have you ever been sitting in a movie theatre watching an animated film, or in front of a television watching a cartoon, and thought to yourself that the voice of that singing dog or fish or prince sounded strangely familiar?

Just this year, Disney's hit movie "Frozen" featured the vocal talents of Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana, and they're just the most recent in a long line of Broadway stars who have lent their voices to animated features. In part two of Playbill's tour through Broadway stars who have been animated, we take a look at the leading men, from a cat with the voice of Robert Goulet, to dogs voiced by Roger Bart, Nathan Lane and John Tartaglia.

Also be sure to check out part one, where we take a look at how Broadway's leading ladies have been animated.
