'Duncanville': Annie sounds exactly like Princess Carolyn from 'BoJack Horseman', say fans

Do Amy Poehler and Amy Sedaris sound that similar? Well, not exactly but of course, there are similarities. But, this is not the first time such confusion has arisen

The world of animation never fails to fill you with wonder and humor. Centered around a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy with a rich fantasy life, 'Duncanville' is a new series on Fox Network that manages to crack a few puns and gags.

What's interesting about the show is that actor Amy Poehler voices two characters — both, Duncan, the young boy and Annie, his mom. While Duncan is still in school we can see adulthood on the horizon, his mom Annie is a parking enforcement officer who dreams of being a detective someday. 

The way Poehler brings variation in her voice is quite a revelation and has struck a chord with most viewers. "#Duncanville is such a fantastic show. Honestly don't think I've laughed this hard at any other show. Amy Poehler and the others who weird on that show do such a fantastic job," one viewer posted.

What's surprising is that one fan thought the mom's character in 'Duncanville' was voiced by Amy Sedaris, who gave her voice to Princess Carolyn's character in 'BoJack Horseman'. The tweet read, "#Duncanville Can't BELIEVE the Mom isn't voiced by the woman that does #PrincessCaroline from #BojackHorseman. She sounds JUST like her."

Do Poehler and Sedaris sound that similar? Well, not exactly but of course, there are similarities — both are successful actresses, writers and comedians. But, this is not the first time such confusion has arisen. Back in December 2019, one fan posted, "Wasn’t Princess Carolyn voiced by Amy Sedaris? Not Amy Poehler."

Fans have forever been confused between the two women. "Amy Poehler and Amy Sedaris are two different people. Got it," one fan wrote last year and another said, "Am I the only one who thinks Amy Sedaris looks like she could be Amy Poehler’s older sister?"

Though different in their overall demeanor, the characters also have a set of similarities. Princess Carolyn and Annie are both independent women, trying to set an example in a predominant man's world. While the former is a hardworking corporate lady, the latter is a working mother responsible for her family, including three mischievous kids. As the series proceeds, there's hope that Poehler will get more recognition for her stint in the show. 

'Duncanville' airs every Sunday at 8.30 pm ET on FOX and seems to be slowly grabbing many eyeballs for its quirky gags.
