Ice-T revealed his cuddly, soft side on Thursday when he did some of his best cartoon voices for Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.”
The rapper and “Law and Order: SVU” star claimed to have had a prior career as a successful voiceover artist, but when Fallon said he didn’t realize the voices on those cartoons were Ice-T as a child, his guest replied: “You just didn’t recognize my voice, now you probably will.”
The late-night host then aired a clip of “Care Bears” and challenged viewers to recognize Ice-T.
The multi-colored bears full of love sounded a little different from how we all remembered them, however, as a new blue character called Grumpy marched out and told them, “Yo, yo, yo, why don’t you all quit your moaning?”
“That was based on a true story,” claimed T, which we don’t believe either.
Most kids from the ’80s also won’t remember Papa Smurf telling one of the younger Smurfs, “You need to man the f— up before I bitch-slap your ass,” either, but allegedly that was Ice-T too.
Ice-T was joined on “The Tonight Show” by his two beloved English bulldogs, but one of them tried to walk off in disgust when his master sullied our memories of “The Smurfs” with swear words.
Even “Dora the Explorer” got the Ice-T treatment, as the heroine bandaged a leopard’s hurt paw, her friend quipped: “Damn, I thought Jimmy Fallon was the only pussy with a broken hand,” referring to Fallon’s infamous finger injury.
“I didn’t know you were going to see that one, Jimmy,” his guest (sort of) apologized.
Ice-T did actually do the voiceover for Madd Dogg in the video game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” as well as Agent Cain in “Sanity: Aiken’s Artifact,” but we don’t think “Care Bears,” “The Smurfs” or “Dora” are on his acting resume.
Ice-T and his wife, Coco Austin, recently announced that they are expecting a baby, so lets hope the cartoons they show their future child are a bit more family friendly.
