Robert Frederick Paulsen III was born on March 11, 1965 in Detroit, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons as a kid and aspired to be a professional hockey player. Ironically, acting was something to "fall back on" and even though Rob voiced numerous characters in Creator/WarnerBros cartoons (''WesternAnimation/TazMania'', ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''), he is best known as the voices of the wisecracking Raphael in the original animated ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' series (and ironically he would later portray Donatello in the 2012 version), and in more recent times the [[MotorMouth Motor Mouthed]], [[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]-esque Yakko Warner on the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series ''Animaniacs'' and the boisterous and energetic laboratory mouse Pinky on two hit series, ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' and ''Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain''.

"It's a treat to portray a complex character," Rob explains about Pinky, a gangling mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. "Besides ... where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like 'Egad!', 'Narf!', 'Poit!', 'Splonk!' and 'Zort!' are allowed?" With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob's versatility shines in his starring role as the voice of Yakko on the Peabody and the two-time Emmy award-winning series Animaniacs. One of Yakko's most popular musical skits, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kT4UrsvzWs The Nations of the World]]" (set to a Mexican hat dance tune), was ''memorized'' by Paulsen, and is a guaranteed showstopper if asked to sing it at a convention.

"I'm getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the seventh grade," jests Rob Paulsen, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as "Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program" for ''Pinky and the Brain'' (WB). Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to the most formidable competition ever - fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Creator/DomDeLuise and Jefrey Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. "I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for 25 years of full-time employment in this business," he admits.
