Interview with Voice Actor Townsend Coleman (Gobo from "Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series")

In this edition of #BeyondTheBooth, we chat with voice actor Townsend Coleman, the voice of Michaelangelo from the original 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, as well as the lead voice on The Tick, and Gobo on the animated version of Fraggle Rock. For 16 years, he was the promo voice for NBC's Must See TV, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

In Part 2 of this interview, find out about his appearance on the game show "Super Password" prior to breaking into the business and which voice actor he met during the audition, what voice actor seems to be the common denominator on most of the animated series he's worked on, his love of The Muppets and his audition for Muppet Babies, how he learned to match Jerry Nelson's voice in order to land the role of Gobo on the Fraggle Rock animated series, his work on Transformers, JEM!, and other animated series.
