In addition, Burton has done extensive voice work for Disney including feature animations, theme parks, interactive sections of the company, and attractions at the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and Tokyo Disney Resort. In fact, regarding the Floridian resort, he was also one of two narrators in a [[{{TheNineties}} 1990s]] PC application called ''The Walt Disney World Explorer'', which was a PointAndClick "edutainment" title that had slideshows, videos, audio descriptions and even a trivia [[{{Minigame}} side game]] that was all about Disney World. (Specifically, he was the male narrator of the game; [[CaptainObvious the other narrator was a woman.]]) He also provides the "Feature Presentation" voice on numerous Disney videos. He also overdubbed the voice of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' MC Deems Taylor for the 2000 60th Anniversary Edition DVD release onwards, as Taylor's original soundtrack had deteriorated.

Corey Burton is also known to audiences for his role as Brainiac in the [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} DC animated universe]]. He appeared as Brainiac in six episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', five episodes of ''Justice League Unlimited'', and three episodes of ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes''. He has also reprised the role in the MMO ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline''.

Corey Burton is also known to ''Franchise/StarWars'' fans as the [[PoorMansSubstitute audio double]] for Creator/ChristopherLee as Count Dooku in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' and several ''Star Wars'' video games (likewise for ''Franchise/KingdomHearts [[VideoGameRemake Re]]:Chain of Memories'', doubling over for Lee as [=DiZ=] from ''Kingdom Hearts II'' and ''Birth By Sleep''). He appeared as Ziro the Hutt and General Lothsome in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' and also appeared as Captain Mar Tuuk and Cad Bane and reprised his roles as Count Dooku, Ziro The Hutt, and General Lothsome in the movie's television adaptation. When Sir Christopher Lee was brought in to record for the ''Star Wars: The Clone Wars'' film, he was so impressed with Corey's impersonation of him that he wondered why he even needed to record for the film.

Also well-known to the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' universe as the voice of Shockwave, Sunstreaker, Brawn and Spike Witwicky in ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' . Almost a quarter of a century later, he reprised the role of Shockwave and Spike, as well as assuming the roles of Megatron, Ratchet, and Ironhide in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. He was considered by Creator/MichaelBay to reprise his role as Shockwave for ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', but Burton ultimately declined, citing a busy schedule and a general disinterest in blockbusters. [[note]]Creator/DavidWarner was also considered for Shockwave, who was actually Burton's inspiration for the original incarnation of the character, but ultimately, the role would've been something of a waste for both Burton and Warner, since Shockwave is actually a RedHerring for the true BigBad of the film, despite being heavily toted as such during promotion.[[/note]]

He's also played dozens of characters on ''Radio/AdventuresInOdyssey'', his most frequent as Edwin's assistant Walter Shakespeare, and is currently one of the main voices for Creator/RobertRodriguez's new El Rey Network.
