Billy West was voice of Doug, Philip J Fry, Profesor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, Zin and has voiced both Ren and Stimpy as well as countless animated voice credits for decades.

Yes, he the voice of the Red Plain M&M in the commercials, I know.   Not to mention the years he was on Howard Stern, spinning some real (and often wildly inappropriate)  genius there.

I've been a fan of Elizabeth Daily since PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE and BETTER OFF DEAD.

And Billy West is a great guy, submitter.

I watched the Bronies documentary on Netflix this weekend.  Oh my goodness, Tara Strong.

I always thought Pamela Adlon was a hottie.

LeVar Burton was Kwame? Never knew that one.

For bonus points, look up the voices done by Alan Tudyk. I shouldn't keep being surprised when his name shows up in a the credits of an animated film.
 
2014-01-10 09:01:02 AM  
Sorry subby...Billy West doesn't haunt my dreams, not even from that picture.  Just seems like some average dude you'd see putting gas in his car.

But Tara Strong....oh yeah.  Plus, she has a few photos that are close to NSFW.

I anticipate my daughter asking me why I keep smiling while she's watching Fairly Oddparents tonite.
 
2014-01-10 09:04:51 AM  
Oh, and I forgot.  I looked through a few pages of Tara Strong's pics (a ton of them are selfies), and not a single stupid duckface in the mix....at least nothing from what I saw.

Damn, I love this woman.

She's plays up her looks a lot, but she's incredibly talented. She's pretty much been in every cartoon.

Recently watched this movie again and realized he sounded a lot like Dexter.  It made the movie unintentionally funnier.

I'd love to hear Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle do a "voice off"; it's hard to think of two female VAs with more vocal range.

It would never happen, but Steve Blum vs. Billy West would be fun too (runner-up faces Tom Kenny).

I never though he did Ren *anywhere* near as good as John K.  JK has this unique, manic quality to his voice that's really unmatched.

Squeak, I tell you!  Squeak!

And before that he spent years on WBCN in Boston with Charles Laquidara and The Big Mattress.

if vines work for you, here's one she posted with Mark Hamil, as Joker and Harley. I thought it was pretty cool.

"That guy" from Doug is the best VO actor since Mel Blanc
 
2014-01-10 09:46:39 AM  
I didn't know Scott Grimes does the voice of the son on American Dad.  He will always be the kid from Critters to me though.  For some damn reason, I got obsessed with that movie one summer when I was about 11 years old, and would rent it constantly.  I haven't seen it in 20 years, but I suspect it might be horribly dated and awful at this point.

No, I don't have a fixation on "Phineas and Ferb."
I have no idea how you could even think that.
 
2014-01-10 09:50:37 AM  
ha! and now the author has removed the 'Flynn' surname and just calls him 'Bobby'.

how hard was it initially to just type 'Bobby Hill'?

and why not make the correction instead of just deleting the error?

This author has no idea about the subject matter and is just half-assing it.

I actually bought her album (cassette) back in the 80's based on her one hit wonder song "Say it, Say it".
Well it hit #70 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but #1 on dance chart.
She is also the voice of Buttercup in the Powerpuff Girls.

He was great on Howard Stern, but they treated him like sh*t.
His Marge Schott impression was great, although Howard in his new politically correct "Howard from the Hamptons" guise would never allow it these days. He also worked the Jackie puppet and put an early TV career Conan O-Brien into shock by cutting him to pieces saying how he'll fail and everybody hates him. The looks on Conan's face were priceless. Like "WTF is happening??? I'm being ripped to pieces by a puppet"

Tara Strong is on the record that she's been offered live action roles that required nude scenes before, but turned them down outright out of fear that some kid would be searching online for their favorite cartoons (Bubbles from the Power Puff Girls, Timmy Turner from Fairly Oddparents, Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, etc.) only to stumble across inappropriate content.

To which I have to say: this is the internet. If you search for any of those you'll ALREADY stumble on inappropriate content.

Thats where I knew him from too, I loved Critters when I was a kid. Also Francine is Rumsfields hot wife in The Burbs..

Really hope subs was trolling about Billy. Man of a thousand voices can look however the fark he wants, and I have the feeling his producers agree.

Yeah I don't know what the big shock is here.  Billy West is a really good voice actor, who's done a lot of good work.

Millennium: LeVar Burton was Kwame? Never knew that one.


I thought it was really funny that all of the pics of the other voice actors were essentially normal everyday photos---then for Kwame you get....Geordi LaForge!
