It's unlikely the voice actors will improvise, or do multiple, different takes -
Wow it shows you how different things are for some animation project as
During the course of recording the voice of Genie in Aladdin (1992) , Robin [Williams] improvised so much they had almost 16 hours of material. He also ad-libbed so many of his lines that the movie's script was turned down for a Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award nomination.
and that is for a 90 minute film where he is on-screen for maybe 45 minutes in total.

sometimes even mailed to Filmation on audio cassette!
Do you have a source on this?
The difference in quality would be a higher noise floor and loss of high end frequencies between 15kHz of audio cassettes to 20kHz of 1/4" tape which would not be audible for the range of the human voice delivering dialogue and even yell/screams and thus 'good enough' for a Saturday morning cartoon show.
