¡Ay, Carumba!

Will Marge Simpson lose her voice?

Well, maybe in Mexico. Union actors who dub The Simpsons into Spanish may get axed in in a labor dispute. The Mexico's National Actors Association has accused a Mexican contractor of attempting to hire too many non-union voices. If an agreement isn't reached, the actors fear the company will hire new voices, changing the cartoon's Spanish voices throughout Latin America.

Blah, blah. This won't really affect American Simpsons fans, but I found it interesting that the Spanish voice of Homer Simpson says he makes only about $55 per episode. That's about 4,000 times LESS than the estimated quarter-mill Dan Castellenata pulls down.
