Benjamin Small is an actor I’ve been learning about for some time now.

The first time I heard his vocal talent was his voice as Bernie Barges on the United Kingdom cartoon, “Watch My Chops,” but in the United States when it had its run there, it was known as “Corneil and Bernie.” Since 2009, he was the voice of Thomas the Tank Engine in the United Kingdom dub of “Thomas and Friend.” However, he stopped after 2015 due to his contract not being renewed. Another voice Small did was as the voice of Ichabod Crane on the special, “The Haunted Pumpkin of Sleepy Hollow.”

Small is also an actor on television. He’s played on series like “Matt Hatter Chronicles,” “Pet Squad,” and “X-calibur.”

Small has also been the producer of a short called, “One.” As well as being the voice of Bernie, he, along with Keith Wickham, sung the theme song for “Watch My Chops.”

Ben Small is inspirational actor with a wide range of voices. He’s also connect himself to Twitter in order to help him find some other voice acting jobs. His positive attitude and great heart keep him famous and notable.

Frank Welker

Frank Welker


Today’s blog is a special one, as I will be looking at one of the biggest veterans in the voice acting world: Frank Welker. It is special because today happens to be his 69th birthday.

Franklin Wendell Welker has been the biggest influence in the voice acting community anyone has ever had the respect to know. Some of his famous voices consist of  Ralph the Guard on “Animaniacs,” Megatron on “Transformers,” and Fred Jones on  the “Scooby Doo” franchise, a role he’s been doing since 1969, and is still doing today. After the death of Don Messick, and after a few other actors to attempt the role of the famous Great Dane, Welker is now the voice of Scooby Doo himself.

Welker’s performances expand far beyond just roles with “humanlike” dialogue. He also does keen animal noises. He’s voiced primates like Abu on “Aladdin”, and Curious George. He’s voiced dogs like Santa’s Little Helper on “The Simpsons” and Seymour Asses on “Futurama.” He’s done so many animal and monster voices and, like Dee Bradley Baker, is incredibly gifted at doing so.

Welker has also been in films before jumping into the world of voice acting. He’s been in the movie “The Trouble With Girls,” where his character befriends Elvis Presley. He was also in “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes,” “Now You See Him, Now You Don’t,” and “How To Frame A Figg.”

Frank Welker has been the voices of so many heroes, villains, sidekicks, pets, and many other characters. The skills he has with his voice and sinuses are second-to-none, and he shall continue to inspire many other in his long line of vocal superiority. But just because I say all of these words of praise doesn’t mean he’s a stuck up. In reality, he’s one of the most modest people that anyone has ever got the chance to meet. Frank Welker, we love you.
