Rob Paulsen is one of Hollywood’s busiest, most talented, and most passionate performers. If you don’t know him by name, you will know him by the many characters he has brought to life: Pinky from Pinky and the Brain and Yakko from Animaniacs, the tough, but loveable, Raphael from the original animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and many more.
So, you can imagine how terrifying it must have been when Rob was diagnosed with throat cancer, putting his entire livelihood in jeopardy and threatening to rob the world of all his loveable characters that filled our youth and adulthood with humor and delight.
Join us in the Rare Book Room as Rob sits down with best-selling author Michael Fleeman!
This appearance will also feature a very special performance of Animaniacs Live! with the Emmy-award winning Randy Rogel, where guests will be able to experience some of the most memorable songs from Animaniacs!
