Does anyone ever wonder why nearly every voice actors for male children (little boy) characters in animated shows are women?

For instance, Tommy Pickles from the Rugrats was voiced by a woman.

Young/Kid Goku from Dragon Ball (original series) was voiced by a woman.

Bart Simpson was voiced by a woman.

Bobby Hill from King of the Hill was voiced by a woman.

Could it be because there are a lack of good young male voice actors (in their early teens or younger) to voice child-age male animated characters that the creators of many shows have no choice but to hire actresses who could do teenage boy or little boy voices?

    • Tara Strong and Nancy Cartwright are very good at doing young male voices

  • Because women can imitate child voices very easily compared to men.
    And it's cheaper than having to constantly hire child actors every time they reach puberty.
