was there a "first" animated feature???

Yes. Hellboy: Sword of Storms.

2nd live action movie is in the works too

are these based on any excisting hellboy stories or are they completely new stuff?

A bit of both. Some of the content for the first movie "Sword of Storms" has appeared in the Hellboy comics -- the japanese vampire story, for example.

if they are new stories are they just stand alone stuff or are they part of hellboy continuity?

The animated series is in one universe. The comics are in another universe and the theatrical movies are in yet another universe. It's a little confusing, but the core characteristics of the characters are the same.

I caught the second half of "Sword of Storms" and thought it was pretty good. Very enjoyable.

I liked Sword of Storms.

I'm not a huge fan of the animation but I prefer the old school style over cgi crap.

voice actor same as the movie guy?

i'll have to look and see if i can DL an evaluation copy of that first one.........

voice actor same as the movie guy?

For the most part, yes. The exception is Abe Sapien, iirc. I think Abe is being voiced by the actor who played Abe in the movie, whereas in the movie, Abe was voiced by David Hyde Pierce.
