Rob Paulsen appears on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 7 PM in conversation best-selling author Michael Fleeman and fellow voice-actor Kevin Conroy, best known for his portrayal of Batman!
Rob Paulsen is one of Hollywood’s busiest, most talented, and most passionate performers. If you don’t know him by name, you will know him by the many characters he has brought to life: Pinky from Pinky and the Brain and Yakko from Animaniacs, the tough, but loveable, Raphael from the original animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and many more.
So, you can imagine how terrifying it must have been when Rob was diagnosed with throat cancer, putting his entire livelihood in jeopardy and threatening to rob the world of all his lovable characters that filled our youth and adulthood with humor and delight.
Aside from his many current and past roles as a voice actor that total to over 2,000 credits, Rob Paulsen is the creator, host, and producer of the highly successful Talkin’ Toons podcast.
