Trivia / Billy West

  • Creator Backlash:
    • He doesn't like talking about doing Ren and Stimpy because he hated working with John K so much. He didn't even come back for the short-lived (and ill-fated) Adult Party Cartoon series.
    • He refused to continue to voice Doug and Roger for Disney's Doug, though Doug fans may be disappointed to know that it had more to do with the fact that his pay was significantly decreased than the quality of the new series.
    • He hates Looney Tunes: Back in Action, primarily because he got replaced by Joe Alaskey, as Bugs' voice half-way through production (although his work as Elmer Fudd remained), and accused director Joe Dante of being too demanding and indecisive.
  • Playing Against Type: His voice for Magus in The Scorpion King video game tie-in sounds a bit like Zapp Brannigan, but his characterization sounds a lot more evil.
  • Promoted Fanboy: West is a big Mel Blanc fanboy as elaborated on the main page. He stated that one of his biggest career highlights was seeing his name appear next to Blanc's during the credits of Daffy's Rhapsody.
