* ManOfAThousandVoices: If you gave this man a script for a half-hour animated show and a microphone, he could do the voices for nearly all the characters.[[note]]This is a ''very'' slight exaggeration, as he's been known to record ''entire conversations'' between multiple characters ''in one take!!''[[/note]] He can even do things to his voice that would require alteration from studio recording equipment (cf. the voice of the pure energy being from the ''Futurama'' episode "Love Labors Lost in Space," which was initially thought to be technical difficulties). He's ''that'' good.
** He even voices an old lady in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger''. It takes a sharp ear to notice as she sounds like Fry on helium.
