Oh my word, I cannot believe having watched Peppa Pig for 2 years, I have only just realised Grandpa Pig is the same voice as the Wise Old Elf in Ben&Holly!
Sceptical:

I knew about Miss Rabbit/Nanny Plum - and simply don't understand how I was so oblivious to Grandpa Pig for so long!

It also took me AGES to work out that PC Plum in Balamory also was the guy in Woolly and Tig a few times haha! grin

What others am I missing?!

The woman who voices Holly in Everything's Rosie does a lot of different cbeebies voices. Although I can't remember who at the moment - I watch things and think "that's Holly!" quite often. I don't like her voice grin

Mummy Pig is also the utterly irritating voice of Wussywat. I can't stand that show.

Pui from Show Me Show Me was a Tellytubby, but I'm not sure that one counts.

Oh my gosh! I dont watch Everythings Rosie so dont know the voice im afraid!

And didnt know about Pui! I think it counts :p

The dragon from Mike the knight is also in little princess - I think the cook? Can't quite remember. And Holly (b&h) is a voice in Wanda and the alien

Mr Elf in Ben and Holly is the same voice as the Peppa Pig Narrator, Mr Rabbit and even Mr Potato!

Grandpa Pig was also Parker in Thunderbirds! David Graham is his name. Due to the new Thunderbirds he's been on TV and Radio lots lately.

There was a thread on here not long ago about voiceovers. I remember that Robert the Robot from Justin's house appears on many shows, but can't remember which now. Q Pootle 5?

Barnaby from Ben & Holly and Pedro Pony are the same kid.

I also recognised Ben Elf in Third & Bird.

Needless to say, CBeebies and Nick Jr are on a constant daytime rotation in this house grin

The narrator on Peppa Pig is also King Marigold and Mr Elf.

He also used to be Siadwell on Naked Video back in the day!

Mr Maker is also Mr LikerBiker (grandpa in my pocket)

Justin Fletcher is in everything too, he's Jake from Tweenies, Timmy from TimmyTime and all the variations of Mr Tumble/Justin's house etc
