Definitely Daisy.... not even trying to sound like a girl, just his regular voice flat out saying "Hi! I'm Daisy!" all the time.

It is a very thought out list, and covers a lot of characters. However just the fact that they are all bigname movie actors seems weird... But hey, it's probably just me.

Personally I would use voice actors and actors that are mainly television actors. But I have to say, I am seeing Kevin speak like Joe from Family Guy.

list
To add to that, I always imagine Bryan Craston's voice for Mr. Sandwich...I dunno, it's the fatherly thing I guess. Aaron Paul as King/Joel made me giggle (can totally see it too). Ahh, I've watched too much Breaking Bad...

Anyway. I guess I'll throw out a few ideas of my own for kicks and giggles. I'd like Peanut to be voiced by Scott Menville (Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia for JRPG nerds' ref, and Robin from Teen Titans for...nerd nerds) I think the voice fits. The dude's still got that charming, youthful tone, and as much energy as the pup himself.

I'd also like Troy Baker for Fido. Cuz Troy Baker makes me happy. His voice has all the charisma that Fidey-boy has.

Also, I think it was even listed somewhere in this topic some pages back...Vic Mignogna would be fantastic for Maxwell. So rugged but charming, and comes right out of a scrawny lil' squeaker ('sup, Ed) so well.

Also, the alt-text of this strip explains it all for Bill.

Lol, I've always imagined Scott Menville playing King. Man, how the fanbase differs, am I right? :P

I have not heard of any of these anime voice actors, as I don't watch anime (sorry, Joey!). But Troy Baker sounds good for Fido. I have also been thinking of Scarlett Johanssen as voicing Jessica as well.

I'll repost my cast just for the sake of revival. It's been updated slightly and trimmed.

Peanut= Will Friedle
Grape= Brittney Karbowski
Bino= I actually keep this one blank, as I think Griffin is the only one worthy of deciding a voice.
Fido= Kyle Herbert
Max= Mitchel Musso
Tarot= Mindy Cohn
Sabrina= Melissa Joan Hart
Fox= Dante Basco
King= Scott Menville
Joey= Y-uri Lowenthall
Ralph= Sean Schemmel
Kevin= Travis Willingham
Tiger= Josh Peck
Marvin=
Zack= Johnny Young Bosch
Keene= Steve Whitmire
Pete= Nick Bakay
Dragon= Jennifer Hale
Res= Christopher Corey Smith

Yes a lot of these are Anime actors, but give the names a search on Youtube and you should get an idea.

Patrick Warburton has to play Bill in all of the posts that people make in here that give him a Housepets! voice actor. That should be the new rule.

It sure does. But I dunno, I think Menville sounds too young for King but oh well. Differences indeed.

Oh yeah, forgot to add...imagining Jamieson Price's voice for Pete sure gives the big burd a lot of testosterone in my eyes. *___*

Well, I always thought of Scott Menville's real voice, not his acting voice. Here's an interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-CtelBHXBk

Jamieson Price? As in Jamiseon "Lordgenome" "Prof. Oak" Price?

Tara Strong is a good pick for Grape. However it just seems so generic to me.
If you haven't yet look up Brittney Karbowski, and give some of her roles a listen. I'm not trying to convince you that Karbowski should be the voice of Grape, just that it's a good voice and could work for one character or another.

How about either Brina Palencia (Ciel Phantomhive, Chibitalia, Ai Enma) or Laura Bailey (Maka Albarn, Lust, Shin Nohara) for Grape?

All these voices work very well! Especially Hiroshi Kamiya, I can totally imagine Zeheart Gallete's voice for him!
Oh! Fox should be voiced by Takuya Eguchi!

Fun fact: Takuya Eguchi(Our voice for Fox) and Hiroshi Kamiya(King) played the characters Asemu Asuno and Zeheart Gallete from Gundam AGE. The two characters where BESTFRIENDS. How suiting, x3

Thought of a few more.

Fox - Micah Solusod (Soul Eater Evans, Toma Kamijo, Ame)

Sergeant Ralph - Troy Baker (Joel, The Joker, Pain)

Rockstar Hawk - Brittney Karbowski (Selim Bradley/Pride, Black Star, Wendy Marvell)

Spot - either Christopher Guerrero (Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki/Nichiya) or Rick Griffin himself




As for Japanese voices, I have a few. (warning, with the exception of one, most of these actors have done voices for Hetalia)

Peanut/Bino - Daisuke Namikawa (Italy/Romano)

Grape - Romi Park (Edward Elric, Switzerland, Finn the human)

Fox - Hiroki Aiba (Ryunosuke Ikenami/ShinkenBlue, Izuru Hitachi, Irie Kanata)

Maxwell - Noriaki Sugiyama (Sasuke Uchiha, England, Blooregard Q. Kazoo)

Fido - Hiroki Takahashi (Ryu, Japan, Joey Wheeler)

Zach - Takahiro Mizushima (Finland)

Kevin - Masaya Onosaka (Vash the Stampede, France, Takeshi Sendo)

Who is that guy who voices Beast Boy? Yeah, I think he would make a perfect voice for Max, just lower it a little.
