[[CantUnhearIt The voice]] of [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]].

Peter Claver Cullen (born July 28, 1941) is a Canadian voice actor who is perhaps best known as the voice of Optimus Prime in ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' (he would subsequently reprise his role as Optimus in Creator/MichaelBay's [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action Transformers film series]] and the ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' animated series). In addition, he has narrated and played Coran (Raible in the original) and King Alfor (King Raimon) in the ''[[Anime/{{Voltron}} Lion Voltron]]'' (Anime/GoLion) series, the transforming spaceship/robot Ramrod (Bismarck in the original) in the 1980s anime series ''Anime/SaberRiderAndTheStarSheriffs'' (''Sei Juushi Bismarck''[[note]]Literally, "Star Musketeer Bismarck"[[/note]]), Commander James Hawkins in the ''[[Anime/{{Voltron}} Vehicle Voltron]]'' (''Anime/DairuggerXV'') series, [[TheEeyore Eeyore]] in ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'', Venger in ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'', the narrator, Murky Dismal, and Skydancer in ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'', Eddie Spenser in ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'', the Franchise/{{Predator}} in the original film, Film/KingKong in the [[Film/KingKong1976 1976 remake]], and [[EvilTwin KARR]] in ''Series/KnightRider''. He also holds the milestone of being the first person to provide the voice of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] (in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' segments from ''WesternAnimation/SaturdaySupercade''), and, for many years, provided voice-overs for Creator/{{Toonami}}'s promos (as "the big guy"). Cullen also voiced Monterey Jack on ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' for the first season, but was replaced by Creator/JimCummings for the rest of the series (it should also be noted that Cummings voiced Monterey Jack in the five-part pilot movie "To The Rescue").

Then, when the news broke that he was to return to voice Optimus Prime, the fandom rejoiced, giving the temporary TropeNamer (Cue Cullen) for SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced.

Then, when the news broke that he was not to return to voice Eeyore in the 2011 ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' film, people were not quite so happy. But thankfully Cullen returned six years later for a {{crossover}} with ''WesternAnimation/DocMcStuffins''.

The fandom rejoiced once more when he reprised the role of KARR in the new ''Series/KnightRider'' series. Even more so because KARR is a TransformingMecha in this version.

And, before you ask, yes: Optimus and Eeyore are his favorite roles.

No relation to Creator/BillCullen, or [[Literature/{{Twilight}} that sparkly vampire dude.]] Also, not to be confused with Peter Mullan.

Transformers also wasn't his first collaboration with Creator/FrankWelker. His earliest animation role was as Mighty Man in Creator/RubySpears' "Mighty Man and Yukk" segments on The ComicBook/PlasticMan Comedy Adventure Show, with Frank as Yukk. He later voiced Sourpuss the family cat opposite Frank's Chomp-Chomp the family dog in Creator/HannaBarbera's WesternAnimation/PacMan series.
