Viva Editions: Rob Paulsen and Michael Fleeman Present: Voice Lessons

by Dave Thompson Tuesday, Apr. 23, 2019 at 9:58 PM

The joyful story of how the voice of our childhood beat throat cancer

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, Yakko from Animaniacs, the tough but lovable 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 charming characters that filled our youths and adulthoods with humor and delight.



Voice Lessons tells the heartwarming and life-affirming story of Rob’s experience with an aggressive cancer treatment and recovery regimen, which luckily led to a full recovery. Rob quickly returned to doing what he loves most, but with a much deeper appreciation of what he came so close to losing. His new lease on life inspired him to rededicate himself to his fans, particularly the new friends he made along the way. Rob said it best himself: “I can not only continue to make a living, but make a difference, and I can’t wait to use that on the biggest scale that I can.”



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. He has received a Daytime Emmy, three Annie Awards, and a Peabody. In addition to his many appearances in the convention circuit, he is currently on tour with Animaniacs Live. Rob also

frequently speaks on behalf of several charities benefitting children and military veterans.



MICHAEL FLEEMAN is a bestselling author, television writer-commentator, and college teacher. He covered the Hollywood beat, major crime stories, and sensational trials for People and the Associated Press, and has written a dozen true crime books, including the New York Times bestseller The Stranger in My Bed. He's now on-air expert commentator and writer for In Plain Sight, and appears on episodes of Deep Undercover on Netflix.



Rob and Mike are available for Interview and Comment



ROB IS THE VOICE OF OVER 250 CHARACTERS, INCLUDING:

Yakko Warner - Animaniacs

Carl Wheezer- Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Pinky- Pinky and the Brain

Raphael (1987), Donatello (2012)- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Mask - The Mask: Animated Series

Gray Fox - Metal Gear Solid



Rob is also a long-time supporter of children and military charities, and has donated considerably to cancer research.
