I grew up in the 90s, so Saturday morning cartoons were a HUGE part of my childhood. Originals, reruns, didn't matter: I watched them all. Hearing all the different characters and finding out who played them inspired me to get into radio in the first place.

Today, I was thrilled to meet two of my voice acting heroes: Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche. Don't recognize the names? If you've watched a TV show between the 80s and now, I promise you've heard their voices. For proof, just check out their IMDB pages here and here.

Rob and Maurice are attending the 26th annual Farpoint Con in Hunt Valley this weekend and were kind enough to sit down with me. We talked about everything from Animaniacs and Orson Welles to stand-up comedy and their real-life friendship. Watch the interview below:

 

Cool, right? The way they feed off each other's energy is infectious. If you want to meet them, there's still time. Just swing by Farpoint to shake a hand, take a picture, or get an autograph. (For more info, click here.) Who knows? They may even share their plan to take over the world.
