Carlo Bonomi (born March 12, 1937 in Milan) is an Italian voice actor and actor. He voiced many characters for the Italian advertising show Carosello. The language of noises he had developed and used for the earlier Osvaldo Cavandoli's La Linea from 1971 to 1986, was reinterpreted for the claymated TV series Pingu on SF DRS during its first four seasons produced between 1986 and 2000, where Bonomi voiced all the characters without a script.[1] When the show was renewed for a 5th and 6th season in 2003 and 2006, Bonomi was replaced by voice actors David Sant and Marcello Magni. In 1984 he provided the laughter voices for the cartoon series Stripy.[2] In 1985 he recorded the railway announcements for the central station of Milan which remained in use until 2008. In 2008 he acted the voices for the yellow tribe in Spore and The Garfield Show.
