Playing Pinball Arcade reminds me of the unfortunate fact that the voice actors in these pinball machines rarely got any visible credit (unless they were celebrities associated with a licensed property, like The Addams Family or Star Trek: TNG). It's well-known that one of the princess voices in Medieval Madness was a pre-stardom Tina Fey, but nobody seems to know who those great voices in Theatre of Magic were.
And now I'm wondering about the main female voice in Tales of the Arabian Nights (not the captured princess, who you only hear briefly, but the friendly genie). She also sounds to me like she might be the same person as a prominent female voice in Cirqus Voltaire. I could be imagining things, but both voices sound to me remarkably like Mrs. Sparklenose, the miniature teacher in the "Abby's Flying Fairy School" animated segments in recent seasons of Sesame Street.
Mrs. Sparklenose's voice is Jessica Stone, who seems to have had an extensive theater career and a long list of one-shot and recurring TV appearances. IMDB doesn't list any pinball credits, but, then, nobody ever does. So all I can really do at this level of effort is guess.
Update: IPDB lists full attract mode credits from Cirqus Voltaire, which actually did credit all its voice actors. Those suggest that the voice there is most likely Cathy Schenkelberg.
Another update: OK, Tales of the Arabian Nights actually does have voice credits deep in its DMD attract mode, and... the voices are someone else again. So I'm zero for two.
