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. Two time Annie Award Nominee Charlie Adler, recently 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 independent live action movie 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 girlnote  and no one in-story noticing or caring that "Cindy" is a man) trying to make sense of her sexuality after kissing her best female friend and refusing to make out with a boy who asked her to the prom.

One of the hottest and most sought-after voice directors in the entertainment business, Adler directed Whoopi Goldberg, Andrea Martin and David Spade in the feature The Rugrats Movie as well as Susan Sarandon, Debbie Reynolds and John Lithgow in the feature sequel Rugrats in Paris. He was the voice director for The Wild Thornberrys; Rugrats the series; Rugrats Kwanzaa; the cast of One Hundred Deeds For Eddie Mc Dowd; Nickelodeon's Rocket Power and The Brothers Flub. He's also directed pilots Psycho Ferret and As Told by Ginger for highly regarded studio Klasky Csupo.

As an actor, Charlie Adler starred on Broadway in Torch Song Trilogy as a successor to Harvey Feinstein. He also toured in the first national company, for which he earned a Helen Hayes Award best actor nomination. Off-Broadway, Charlie starred in Family Business at the Astor Place Theater for a year, as well as appearing in Alan Albert's acclaimed improv company, The Proposition. Adler co-starred with Imogene Coca and Rita Rudner in Once Upon a Mattress, with Professor Irwin Corey in Neil Simon's Gods Favorite and toured as Edward Albee's psycho in Zoo Story. In addition, he has played Israel Horowitz's Hero in Dr Zero as well as the Emcee in Cabaret.

On television, Charlie was a regular on very short-lived Redd Foxx Show, assumed the roles of three generations of sons for PBS in Then And Now, and an obsessive photographer in First & Ten.
