Cowabunga Corner 113: Rob Paulsen Interview

In this episode I interview Rob Paulsen about working on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  Rob was the original voice of Raphael, and stayed with the cartoon from 1987 to 1995.  His skills were later realized on other series such as Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, the Mask and The Tick.  A wonderful voice actor who can do so much with just a microphone and a script.  Rob is now Donatello on the Nickelodeon TMNT Series.

I first met Rob at Motor City Comic Con in 2005, since then I have seen him at a few other events.  He is a wonderful person, whom I highly recommend meeting.  If you like learning about voice acting check out his podcast “Talkin Toons” where he interviews many other voice actors and shares so much information with his fans.  Truly one of the nicest guys you can meet.

Interested in other cast member interviews here on Cowabunga Corner we have talked with Renae Jacobs, Townsend Coleman, and Pat Fraley.  Find these interviews on

I really enjoyed hearing all Rob had to say about his career and history with the turtles. I also really enjoyed hearing the story of Chad. I'm really happy that we have Rob Paulsen as a part of the Nick Turtles!
