"It's a treat to portray a complex character," Rob explains about Pinky, a gangling mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. "Besides ... where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like 'Egad!', 'Narf!', 'Poit!', 'Splonk!' and 'Zort!' are allowed?" With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob's versatility shines in his starring role as the voice of Yakko on ''Animaniacs''. One of Yakko's most popular musical skits, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kT4UrsvzWs The Nations of the World]]" (set to a Mexican hat dance tune), was ''memorized'' by Paulsen, and is a guaranteed showstopper if asked to sing it at a convention.

Robert Frederick Paulsen III was born on March 11, 1956 in Detroit, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons as a kid and aspired to be a professional hockey player. Ironically, acting was something to "fall back on" and even though Rob voiced numerous characters in Creator/WarnerBros cartoons (''WesternAnimation/TazMania'', ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''), he is best known as the voices of the wisecracking Raphael in the original animated ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' series (and ironically he would later portray Donatello in the 2012 version), and in more recent times the [[MotorMouth Motor Mouthed]], [[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]-esque Yakko Warner on the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and the boisterous and energetic laboratory mouse Pinky on two hit series, ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' and ''Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain''.

Realizing how fortunate he is and passionate about giving to charity, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and cancer research. Rob's volunteer work with [=GOALmodels=] is particularly rewarding. [=GOALmodels=], a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire ninth-graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, ice hockey and riding his motorcycle. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish; son, Ash (who currently works at WebVideo/GameXplain), and two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.
