Clam I Am (Not)

Though by no means as insulting or slandering a claim as "Barack Obama is a Muslim" or what have you, my mention of Fish Hooks reminded me of a bizarre rumor that is circulating around the Internet for some reason.


For some reason, a number of websites are claiming that veteran actress/singer/voice artist and Disney standby Ashley Tisdale provided the voice of Clamantha in the pilot episode of Fish Hooks. This is not the case- Clamantha's voice was and always has been provided by staffer Alex Hirsch. Clamantha is by far the funniest character on the show, and as a voice actress Ms. Tisdale isn't anything to sneeze at- she is surprisingly good on Phineas and Ferb- but the two of them are not one and the same. For reference, here's a handy guide to telling the two apart:

Ashley Tisdale: born 1985 in West Deal, New Jersey.
Clamantha: is a teenage clam.

Ashley Tisdale: first rose to fame playing Maddie on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Sharpay in High School Musical.
Clamantha: is a teenage clam.

Ashley Tisdale: famously had a nose job in order to alleviate a deviated septum.
Clamantha: being a teenage clam, has no nose.

Ashley Tisdale: is related to Ron Popeil and the inventor of the Ginsu knife.
Clamantha: shoots pearls. Because she is a clam.

Ashley Tisdale: can currently be seen on the CW's Hellcats opposite fellow Disney vet Alyson Michalka and also provides the voice of Candace on Phineas and Ferb.
Clamantha: can currently be seen on Disney Channel's Fish Hooks opposite a bunch of cartoon fish and also has a voice not provided by Ashley Tisdale.

Also, does this sound like Ashley Tisdale to you?

I didn't think so.
