This is amazing.
NERDIST PODCAST: ROB PAULSEN AND MAURICE LAMARCHE


Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche are LEGENDS of the voice over world. Between the two, you’ve heard them in Animaniacs, Ninja Turtles, Jimmy Neutron, The Simpsons, Back at the Barnyard, Justice League, Dexter’s Lab, Ultimate Spiderman, Futurama, Looney Tunes, Toucan Sam, Harvey Birdman, Johnny Bravo, and together as PINKY AND THE BRAIN. I love these guys so much and how they play off one another that I had them on together. “Countries of the World” and Orson Welles are GUARANTEED in this episode. I promise it will make you happy on a deep, deep level. Language alert for tiny ears! There’s a bit of swearing (when is there NOT on this show?) but lots of fun and hugs, too!
