Rob Paulsen on Voice Acting, Beating Cancer & Giving Back to Fans

Thursday, October 10th

Some may not know his name, but most definitely know Rob Paulsen’s work! The Emmy & Peabody Award winning voice actor has been the voice of 250 characters, best known as the voice of Pinky from “Pinky and the Brain,” Yakko from “Animaniacs,” Raphael & Donatello from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” & Carl Wheezer from “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius!”

Rob delighted us in studio this morning with an array of voices, he says “thank you guys for lowering your entertainment standards and allowing this guy from Flint Michigan on.” He also came by to talk about his memoir “Voice Lessons: How a Couple of Ninja Turtles, Pinky, and an Animaniac Saved My Life” which is out now in book stores & online at

Rob was thankful to spend time with the big show, and puts his battle with cancer in perspective.

“I get to tell my story, these cartoon characters are way more important than a paycheck, they help save lives!”

Rob is signing copies of the book and performing his “Anamaniacs Live” show at Strand Bookstore in NYC tonight at 7pm!

Rob is currently directing all new episodes of Nickelodeon’s “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and he has a popular podcast “Talkin’ Toons.”
