FAN EFFECT

Hollywood voiceover star Rob Paulsen talks Animaniacs, TMNT and the time he voiced Tom Cruise's kisses

Fan Effect host Andy Farnsworth is joined by Hollywood voiceover star Rob Paulsen ahead of his appearance at FanX Salt Lake as a featured guest in September, and the release of season two of Animaniacs on Hulu in November. Rob is best known for being the voice of Yakko Warner on "Animaniacs", Pinky on "Pinky and the Brain", Raphael on the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon in 1987, Donatello in the 2012 TMNT reboot on Nickelodeon, and Carl Wheezer on "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius", but he has voiced hundreds of roles on hundreds of TV shows and movies. Rob talks how it feels to revisit the role of Yakko after nearly 25 years, how he feels about the "Countries of the World" song, what it's like to be part of juggernaut Ninja Turtles franchise, how he used to impersonate his characters while ordering food, and the time he had to "voice" a makeout scene in one of Tom Cruise's most famous roles.
