DESCRIBE... Sean Schemmel... HEEEEEERRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!He's Goku, to Americans. Plain and simple.Sean Schemmel started dubbing in 1999. His first (and breakout) role would be the providing the voice for Goku in Dragon Ball Z (in other words, he became the English voice of possibly the most powerful and famous Shōnen hero of all time). He originally wanted one of the villain roles, since he only saw a few episodes of the series before being cast, and NEVER knew who Goku was before walking into the recording studio! Once he saw that he was pasted on all the posters on the wall, he realized he was cast as "The Guy"! With Kai, and new video game adaptations, he is still voicing Goku to this day.He did some other roles for FUNimation before moving to New York to work for 4Kids Entertainment. Still occasionally returns to FUNimation, since Kai is recorded there today, and since 4Kids Entertainment currently has less work available.In 2013, he moved to California and currently is doing work there.He has a MAJOR voice range; no pigeon hole there.And he can scream, EPICALLY!. His screams are often recycled any time any other character needs to scream in the same show! This alone makes for Absolute Crowning Moment of Awesome!
