With famous superhero teams assembling on the big screen, some of animation’s most well-known voice actors have gotten together for their own super squad.
Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) has teamed up with legendary Batman Kevin Conroy, X-Men: The Animated Series’ Wolverine Cal Dodd and longtime DC animation voice director Andrea Romano for the new animated series The Gang’s All Here.
The show follows an animal cast of actors as they star in their own films and navigate the pitfalls of the entertainment industry.
In a change, Paulsen and writer Byron Buxton, are pitching the project with the voices already attached. The creative team is using the name recognition of its stars to drum up interest.
For Conroy, who voices Frasier Crane like bear Frances and superhero dog Barkley, being onboard a project this early is new.
“It’s certainly unique for me, because it’s getting involved with the creative people earlier as the package is being put together,” said Conroy.
Romano announced her retirement earlier this year, but the project brought her back to work very quickly.
“This is so different than what we’ve been doing in terms of creating things with actors,” said Romano, who will voice Meryl, a feline sidekick to Conroy’s super-dog Barkley. “I think it speaks volumes that I’m willing to look at it when I’d just retired.”
Dodd will voice Sergeant Snout, a pig commando and of course, a wolverine.
