With Fat Tony now a permanent character, the question of why certain characters are voiced and why others are voiceless has come up again – so he’s a repost from a couple of months ago:

I’m not sure I can answer that exact question of ehy some characters have voices and some don’t (but I’m sure it has a lot to do with royalties and licensing). But I can tell you that the only game characters with voices are those voiced by the 6 lead actors in the series – Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, and Harry Shearer.

So here is a list of the lead actors and some of the characters they play, so you know which characters are likely to have a voice and which will probably be forever silent:

Dan Castellaneta
Homer Simpson
Grampa Simpson
Krusty the Clown
Barney Gumble
Groundskeeper Willie
Mayor Quimby
Hans Moleman
Sideshow Mel
Itchy
Kodos
Gil Gunderson
Squeaky Voice Teen
Rich Texan
Louie

Julie Kavner
Marge Simpson
Patty Bouvier
Selma Bouvier
Jacqueline Bouvier

Nancy Cartwright
Bart Simpson
Nelson Muntz
Todd Flanders
Ralph Wiggum
Kearney

Yeardley Smith
Lisa Simpson

Hank Azaria
Apu Nahasapeemapetilon
Moe Szyslak
Chief Wiggum
Comic Book Guy
Lou
Carl Carlson
Dr. Nick
Snake Jailbird
Professor Frink
Kirk Van Houten
Luigi Risotto
Bumblebee Man
Captain Horatio McCallister
Superintendent Chalmers
Cletus Spuckler
Disco Stu
Duffman
Legs

Harry Shearer
Mr. Burns
Waylon Smithers
Ned Flanders
Principal Skinner
Otto Mann
Lenny Leonard
Reverend Lovejoy
Dr. Hibbert
Kent Brockman
Rainier Wolfcastle
Scratchy
Dr. Marvin Monroe
Kang
Judge Snyder
Sanjay Nahasapeemapetilon
God

You’ll notice that Milhouse, Edna Krabappel, Hank Scorpio, Fat Tony and Shauna are not on the list – they’re all voiced by a supporting cast member or a guest actor. And for that reason, they don’t talk at all in the game.

Just a reminder of one of this week’s polls – even more relevant thanks those 12 free donuts from EA. The poll asks what building/character combination would make the best first donut buy (and, yes, it probably should have included Squeaky Voice Teen and the Aztec Theater as, even though they’re separate items, they work well together)?

As you’ll see, Duffman is in the lead, at least in part due to his new Duff Stadium task (which I’m pretty sure he’ll get to keep after Whacking Day). But, there’s also a groundswell of support for Otto and Frink.

If you haven’t voted yet, choose your favorite and help those first-time buyers of premium characters decide what they should do. And if you want to see how the voting turned out on the cheaper premium characters, take a look here.

A number of people through the comments and on Twitter have reported some lucky wins through the Golden Scratch-R – with the result that they would like to know what to spend their donuts for their first ever premium purchase. It’s a very good question (although I am a little envious!).

A while back, I ran a poll on which of the cheaper premium characters was the best buy (and you can see the results here). So this time, I thought a poll on which is the best building/character combination would be a good idea.

So, premium buyers, place your votes. And non-premium buyers don’t need to feel excluded from all the polling action – there’s also a poll running this weekend on whether or not you’re on track to win the whacking day prizes (and you can find that one here).

This post is coming to you by popular demand. It’s the first of a series of guides to your character collections – when are your characters unlocked and who unlocks them. Thanks to schpeen and @EliteLeafHater for suggesting this.

There are 2 important things to remember: premium characters and premium decorations never unlock anything or anyone in your regular game and that means you can’t unlock the Town Hall and get Mayor Quimby early by buying Bumblebee Man, and buying Mount Carlmore won’t unlock Lenny and Carl; and that the levels referred to are the game levels – frequent players often find that while XP bar takes them up through the levels very quickly, they are still at a much lower level in their regular gameplay (you may be at level 27 for XP, but level 20 for gameplay, for example).

So, following the character sets, here’s the first part of who unlocks whom(and when):
