A voice actor is always a fun person to interview, especially when they slip into a funny voice or two as they talk. Two voice actors are even better because they can bounce off each other both as colleagues and characters. But when you get four together, all bets are off.
Voice actors Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice LaMarche are some of the most prolific talents in the business, each with hundreds of credits to their name and a handful of Emmy’s between them. At the inaugural Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, this legendary quartet, better known to many as Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and The Brain of Animaniacs, gathered together for a rare group appearance, and I had the unbelievable honor of getting them on the mic to talk about cartoons, characters, and everything in between.
