Red Hot Chili Peppers member Flea has voiced a character in a Disney cartoon.

The bassist is to appear in the cartoon Sheriff Callie's Wild West, which features fellow musician Mandy Moore in the title role.

Appearing in an episode called 'The Pie Thief', Flea takes the part of a milk thief threatening to upset life in Sheriff Callie's home, Nice and Friendly Corners. The episode will air in the US tomorrow (March 7), reports Rolling Stone.

Meanwhile, Flea's bandmate Chad Smith is warming up for a drum battle with Anchorman actor Will Ferrell. Ferrell made light of how similar he and Smith look while hosting a Reddit Ask Me Anything, which led to the Red Hot Chili Peppers member challenging him to a musical duel. Ferrell did not reply immediately but later accepted the offer, on the provision that they raise money for a cancer charity.
