Charles Michael "Charlie" Adler (born October 2, 1956 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American voice actor and voice director. Two time Annie Award Nominee Charlie Adler, named one of the "top thirteen all time voice-over artists" by Animation Magazine and "Voice Of The Decade" by Animation World News, is at the undisputed top of the world of voice for animation.

He is also the director, writer and star of the independent live action short film ''No Prom For Cindy'', a teen dramedy about a high school girl, played by the then-middle-aged, muscular Mr. Adler with no attempts to make him look like a girl aside from being dressed like one, and [[WeirdnessCensor no one in-story noticing or caring that "Cindy" is a man]]. In the film, Cindy tries to make sense of her sexuality after kissing her best female friend during a slumber party, refusing to make out with a boy who asked her to the prom, and being sent to a religious-based corrective therapy program by her intolerant parents.

One of the hottest and most sought-after voice directors in the entertainment business, Adler directed Creator/WhoopiGoldberg, Creator/AndreaMartin, and Creator/DavidSpade in the feature ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'' as well as Creator/SusanSarandon, Creator/DebbieReynolds, and Creator/JohnLithgow in the feature sequel ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''. He was the voice director for ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys''; ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' the series; ''Rugrats Kwanzaa''; the cast of ''Series/OneHundredDeedsForEddieMcDowd''; Nickelodeon's ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub''. He's also directed pilots ''Psycho Ferret'' and ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' for highly regarded studio Klasky Csupo.

As an actor, Charlie Adler starred on Broadway in ''Theatre/TorchSongTrilogy'' as a successor to Creator/HarveyFierstein. He also toured in the first national company, for which he earned a Helen Hayes Award best actor nomination. Off-Broadway, Charlie starred in ''Theatre/FamilyBusiness'' at the Astor Place Theater for a year, as well as appearing in Creator/AlanAlbert's acclaimed improv company, ''Theatre/TheProposition''. Adler co-starred with Creator/ImogeneCoca and Creator/RitaRudner in ''Theatre/OnceUponAMattress'', with Professor Creator/IrwinCorey in Creator/NeilSimon's ''Theatre/GodsFavorite'', and toured as Creator/EdwardAlbee's psycho in ''Theatre/ZooStory''. In addition, he has played Creator/IsraelHorowitz's Hero in ''Theatre/DrZero'' as well as the Emcee in ''{{Theatre/Cabaret}}''.

On television, Charlie was a regular on very short-lived ''Series/ReddFoxxShow'', assumed the roles of three generations of sons for Creator/{{PBS}} in ''Series/ThenAndNow'', and played an obsessive photographer in ''Series/FirstAndTen''. Adler has also been a familiar face in over 100 television commercials for Coca-Cola, UsefulNotes/McDonalds, IBM, G.E., Big Red Gum and Safeguard Soap. As a writer, Charlie has co-written several ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episodes and his critically acclaimed one main show ''There Used To Be Fireflies'' won him a Dramalogue Award For Best Actor. E!, ''Series/EntertainmentTonight'', TV Guide, Creator/{{PBS}}, ''The Los Angeles Times'', and ''The New York Daily Post'' have profiled him, so too the ''Times''. He's been a guest on the Joan Rivers Show and in 1991 Charlie was one of hundreds of guests invited by Barbara Bush to a White House reception in honor of their contributions to the First Lady's literacy program.

* [[LargeHam Largest Ham Ever]]: While he's definetly capable of more subtle acting, when he goes big, he goes ''really'' big. The Red Guy is the best example: ''[[ChewingTheScenery nothing]]'' [[ChewingTheScenery that character does is subtle]].

* ActingForTwo: See TalkingToHimself. Much like Creator/BillyWest, Creator/TressMacNeille, and Creator/MelBlanc, Adler is one of those voice actors who could conceivably voice every character (male and female) in an animated show if given the chance.
* BreakthroughHit: For directing, ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'' in 1998.
* CrossDressingVoices: As Cow in ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', Bev Bighead and Gladys Hippo in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' and numerous others. He also uses his Cow voice whenever Buster Bunny crossdresses.
* TheDanza: Played a recurring character called Mr. Adler in ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead''. Also the Adler Tree in ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''.
* DoingItForTheArt: The short film ''No Prom for Cindy'' was conceived when Adler was talking with David Feiss (the creator of ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' and ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'') and Michael Ryan (one of the writers of the two aforementioned shows) about [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/people/davefeiss.html "the power of acting, and specifically, what if something were horribly cast, but through the power of acting, you could pull it off"]], which explains why Adler was cast in the lead role.



* TheImmodestOrgasm: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg2uhwTeitg This video]] from a ''Talking Toons'' live special has Adler doing this as The Red Guy. Even David Feiss--who created [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken two Cartoon Network shows]] [[WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel of dubious content]]--[[EveryoneHasStandards was hiding his face in embarrassment (and to keep from laughing)]].



* NonSingingVoice: Averted in the ''Tiny Toons'' movie where he does sing for Buster Bunny. However, Buster's Dueling Banjos musical number was done by Creator/RobPaulsen.
* StarMakingRole: Nat Smurfling from ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' and Eric Raymond from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' in 1985.
* TheImmodestOrgasm: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg2uhwTeitg This video]] from a ''Talking Toons'' live special has Adler doing this as The Red Guy. Even David Feiss--who created [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken two Cartoon Network shows]] [[WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel of dubious content]]--[[EveryoneHasStandards was hiding his face in embarrassment (and to keep from laughing)]].
* TheOtherDarrin: Replaced Thom Adcox as the voice of Felix in ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'' and Chris Latta as Cobra Commander.
* PlayingAgainstType:
** Since 2007 he mostly plays serious villains like Starscream.
** Also occurred earlier, when he voiced T-Bone, a vigilante/mechanic who takes his crime-fighting seriously (''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' itself was a sort of example: an action-adventure series with implied onscreen deaths... from Creator/HannaBarbera).
** and being the Gorn {{Ambadassador}} in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline''.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Has played roles alongside Creator/JimCummings and Creator/TomKenny many times.
* TalkingToHimself: Happens in ''SWAT Kats'', ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Bravestarr}}'', ''Monster Tails'', ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} Jem and the Holograms]]'', ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', ''WesternAnimation/PetAlien'', and ''WesternAnimation/ShurikenSchool''. In ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' (the BannedEpisode "Leap Frogs") he even had G rated sex with himself.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, Charlie Adler wanted to be a painter, but abandoned that dream when he was diagnosed with colorblindness.
