Personally speaking, I've always been a huge fan thanks to his appearance on a number of my favourite films, particularly Ghostbusters, Strange Brew and my favourite movie musical ever, Little Shop Of Horrors. He also seemed a regular face on my telly not just for his films but the fact he was the inspiration for not one but two cartoon series of my youth - 1990's "Gravedale High" in which he played a regular teacher in charge of a class full of distinctly 90s takes on classic cinematic monsters.
Then the following year there was the equally short lived "Little Shop" which dropped the "Of Horrors" and didn't feature Moranis as such but rather his character Seymour, now a young boy in charge of an unruly and hungry - but importantly now no longer murderous - plant.
Nowadays celebrity endorsements in cartoons stretch to guest voices here and there, such as David Bowie in Spongebob Squarepants but in my youth, there was an explosion of animated shows that stuck famous faces front and centre in desperate bid to drag in an audience, regardless of they were kid friendly or not. Can you tell who these animated celebrities leading up their own shows are meant to be?
