Rob Paulsen Interview: Voice actor Rob Paulsen takes us on a ride through his career, his fight with cancer & his current tour with the Animaniacs Live Concert.
Rob Paulsen has voiced many characters that we spent hours on end after school with our eyes glued to the screen. Whether it be Yakko singing yet another tune, Pinky and his good pal Brain plotting to take over the world, or Raphael chowing down a slice of pepperoni pie, it never faltered that he brought joy to our childhoods in one form or another.
Even after his fight with throat cancer and recovery, he has come back once again and not only given the next generation of Acme heads a revival of the Animaniacs, but now has gone on tour with the Animaniacs Live Concert. With shows scheduled across the country, such as Arizona, Virginia, Washington D.C. and New York, it’s very likely that you can catch multiple generations in the seats gathered together as they enjoy renditions of Yakko’s World and many original tunes that have been tailored specifically for these shows.
We had the opportunity to speak with Rob about his astounding career, those special moments that have stood out to him, his triumph over cancer and of course tons of our favorite friends make an appearance as well as Rob takes us through a laughter filled interview with special appearances from Yakko, Pinky, Carl and Raphael. Enjoy the full interview below and be sure to visit Animaniacs Live to see when they will be visiting your side of town.
