How does "being present" translate into Pinky? Well, we cover it in this episode.
Rob Paulsen is the voice of Pinky from “Pinky and the Brain,” Yakko from “Animaniacs,” Raphael (and Donatello) from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and Carl Wheezer from “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.” He has an Emmy, Annie and Peabody Award.
Paulsen has been the voice of over 250 different animated characters and performed in over 1000 commercials.
Rob’s memoir Voice Lessons: How a Couple of Ninja Turtles, Pinky and an Animaniac Saved My Life chronicles his journey with throat cancer.
Ironically, a man who uses his voice for work found himself with throat cancer (now recovered.)
“Animaniacs,” the popular 90s cartoon series, has returned to Hulu with Rob reprising his original role as Yakko. The show has already been picked up for a third season.

Bob Saget's Here For You
BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
