That is true, they "talk" to each other with their own means of vocal communication. For example, dogs communicate by barking (and can presumably be understood by other dogs).

Then there was Mr. Ed, the talking horse; he was the title character of a 1960s sitcom. But his speech was actually provided off-camera by a voice actor, to make it look like the horse was actually talking.

Well, for the past 11 months or so, the ones across the street from us have been parking their cars in front of our house for long periods of time, and just two months ago we called out one such perpertrator on it, and he arrogantly argued against it. (I posted the full story in the Sound Off Vent/Rants R Us thread in TTT on that very day; I'll try to find the link.) And lately our next-door neighbors (whom we're on very good terms with) have parked their cars out there in an effort to stop the aforementioned guy from doing it for too long.

cartoon characters stay the same age?
Most of the time cartoons characters are made to cater to a specific age group. So that the kids can reflect themselves on that said character. Therefore, there's no reason why the character should grow up as there will always be new kids to watch the show after the other ones get older. For instance, Ash from Pokemon is pretty much the same age in every iteration of the show.

Mainly because of regionalisms. For example, Missourians pronounce their state as Mizz-ur-uh even though the rest of us say it as Miz-ur-ee. Or Louisville, Kentucky is pronounced by its residents as Lo-vul or Lou-uh-vil instead of lou-ee'vul.

Case in point: Tijuana (not Tiajuana; there's no letter at all between the 'i' and the 'j'; the proper pronunciation is "tee-HWAH-nah" (although some people may schwa the last syllable; that is, say "nuh"; we can let that slide because it's close enough)).
