Sorry I'm a week late on my own birthday, but happy 63rd birthday. Quite impressive work. Hope Futurama could have a Theatrical Film one of these days.

Happy Birthday Billy West!

He is easily one of the all time best. His work on Futurama is some of the best voice work ever. I mean not only is his the main lead Phillip J. Fry but he's also Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Zoidberg, and even know that I know he did the voices of all three of them, they still don't sound anything like each other, I think that's incredible, plus he's hilarious as all three of them,

I mean that's not just the only characters he's done on the show, he was also Zapp Brannigan (doing a really great impression to homage the late and great Phil Hartman), Richard Nixon's Head, Smitty, Leo Wong, Judge Ron Whitey and Lars Filmore.

He's also a really great Elmer Fudd and a solid Bugs Bunny too. I also like his performances as Woody Woodpecker, Wally Walrus, Red M&M, Skeets, Monkey King, Kraab and Rocket Raccoon.

I can get his point about hiring Celebrities over professionals, there are exceptions but quite often they feel like they just tacked on a big name to make the film more noticable

@HienFan Yeah; they only do professional voice actors as the stars if the movie is based off of a long-running TV show (like 'The Simpsons') and only then are the voices even close to being big names.

I like him but I feel as though his voice is just the same half the time.

One of the most underrated (and underused) voice actors of all time! Seriously, we need to hear him in more stuff.

Definitely one of the best in the VO industry.

Fry, Farnsworth and Zoidberg are of course some of my favorite roles of his.

First time I think I heard Billy's voice was Space Jam (still a great movie even today!) :D

Bill West does a great job providing the voice of the Honey Nut Cheerios bee, Ren and Stimpy, Bugs Bunny, and Woody Woodpecker.

Happy Birthday, Billy.
