Happy Birthday Rob Paulsen!

One of the funniest VA's alive with some of the best comedic timing ever.

It's hard to pick favourites when it comes to him, I've enjoyed many of his roles including Yakko Warner, Pinky, Dr. Otto Scratchensniff, Donatello, Raphael, Carl Wheezer, Major Glory, PJ, Reuben, Jose Carioca, Banzai, Jack Fenton, Nicolai Technus, The Box Ghost, Gordon, Air Raid, Slingshot, Mac, Ditto, Sal Moroni, Gray Fox and Mr. Opportunity.

I also loved his performances as Steelbeak, Snuffles, Gustav, Goggan, Werewolf by Night, Baron Strucker, Batroc The Leaper and Boomerang.

It's also pretty cool that he's reprising once more as Raphael for the upcoming TMNT crossover between the Current Nick 2012 incarnation and the classic 80's Turtles.

I'm sure we'll see a line of how "similar" 80's Raphael and Nick Donatello voices sound alike.

Anyways Happy 60th Birthday Rob Paulsen! All Round Funny Man and Great Guy.

I remember Rob once mentioned about the idea of voicing all four teenage mutant ninja turtles, with two done I hope someday he gets a chance to try the other two at least once

Is it weird to say that him and Todd Haberkorn are practically cut from the same cloth? They both can play any character (rarely playing villains) and most of their performances include hilarious characters.

@TrueMyriad Paulsen did not seem to voice Spike the Dinosaur in the 6th of the Films for some reason. In that one he for unknown reasons was voiced by Benett.

said at 4:14 AM on Thu Sep 25 2014
@CuriousUserX90 he's the voice of Spike in the series regardless. Maybe Bennett was a sound alike for him

Can we talk about what an amazing singer he is?

You can sort of tell by the voices he does, but if you listen to some of the songs he does on Animaniacs, his range is just incredible.

Plus, if you asked him to sing a duet between say Carl and Yakko, he could probably do it.
