Joe Sugg lends voice to Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball

Published on: 22nd May 2019

Joe documented his contribution to share with his 3.7m YouTube followers.

In a first for The Amazing World of Gumball, Cartoon Network UK has collaborated with YouTube star and runner up of Strictly Come Dancing 2018, Joe Sugg, who will voice a one-off character in an upcoming episode.

Airing on May 27th (during the a-MAY-zing Month of Gumball), the episode ‘The Drama’ features Azrael, a ghost of Carrie’s past. Joe’s personality and charm lend themselves perfectly to voice Azrael, as he shares in-jokes and history with Carrie. The episode will air on Bank Holiday Monday at 8am and 5pm.

Joe filmed his experience at Fitzrovia Post on his GoPro and has released it to 3.7m subscribers on his ThatcherJoeVlogs YouTube Channel.

Joe commented: “When I was asked to be a guest voice in The Amazing World of Gumball, I jumped at the chance. I’m a huge fan of the show and cartoons generally and I love that this show has humour for all ages.”

The show is a Cartoon Network original created by Ben Bocquelet and directed by Mic Graves. Episodes follow the misadventures of Gumball, a twelve-year-old blue cat, and his adopted goldfish brother Darwin, in the amazing town of Elmore, where the strangest things happen every day.
