** He doesn't like talking about his work on ''The Ren and Stimpy Show'' because he hated working with John K so much. He's still willing to voice the characters, but only when John K isn't involved (which meant he didn't participate in the infamous ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpyAdultPartyCartoon'').

* 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 EnergyBeing from the ''Futurama'' episode "Love Labors Lost in Space," which was initially thought to be technical difficulties). He's ''that'' good.

** He revealed on ''Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen'' that he was a voice match for Della Reece of all people in the video game adaptation of the film ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaur}}''.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A handful of his most memorable voices are some variation on Larry Fine of Film/TheThreeStooges (Stimpy is basically Larry, but high-pitched so as not to sound like "a depressed old Jewish man"). He was even hired as a dialect coach for the 2012 ''Stooges'' movie.

** His voice as Zapp Brannigan is based on Phil Hartman, who was originally cast for the role before his death. West comes pretty close to sounding like him, just a bit higher-pitched.

* VocalDissonance: He claims to have based the voice of Phillip J. Fry on himself when he was 25 years old. It's ''barely'' any different from the way he sounds now. He's almost 70 now and yet the very youthful voices of Fry, Doug, and the Red M&M are the voices he does that are closest to his natural speaking voice.
