[[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Hiya toonsters! We got a great show for you today!]]

Charles Michael "Charlie" Adler (born October 2, 1956 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American voice actor and voice director. He's voiced a ton of characters over the years, most notably as the original voice for Buster Bunny from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', and about half the cast for Creator/CartoonNetwork's ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' and spinoff ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''. He's also been the voice of [[TheStarscream Starscream]] in the ''[[Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' movies.

He's also gotten into voice-directing: he's voice direted ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'' ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''. ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys''; ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' the series; the cast of ''Series/OneHundredDeedsForEddieMcDowd''; ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'', ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub'' and the pilot for ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger''.

As an actor, Charlie Adler starred on Broadway in ''Theatre/TorchSongTrilogy'' as a successor to Harvey Fierstein. 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}}''.

He was 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.

In live-action TV, Charlie was a regular on the very short-lived ''The Redd Foxx Show'', assumed the roles of three generations of sons for Creator/{{PBS}} in ''Series/ThenAndNow'', and played an obsessive photographer in Creator/{{HBO}}'s ''Series/FirstAndTen'', as well as over 100 commercials. As a writer, Charlie has co-written several ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episodes and his critically acclaimed one man 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. 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.

!!Tropes applicable to him include:
* [[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]].
* GutturalGrowler: As Starscream, Cobra Commander, Super Skrull, and Dr. Doom. Somewhat with T-Bone, as he also speaks normally, but, being an anthro cat, he tends to growl his words as well.
* 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 ''[[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken created]]'' [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken the character]], [[EveryoneHasStandards was hiding his face in embarrassment (and to keep from laughing)]].
* LargeHam: Often when he plays spastic characters with high voices, like Ickis, Buster Bunny, or Chicken, and ''especially'' when he voices smug asshole characters, like Mr. Bighead and the Red Guy.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: But it's usually easy to detect his characteristic voice.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Played this role numerous times for Disney; in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' he even played it literally.
