Patrick Warburton (Joe Swanson) Improvises 9 New Cartoon Voices | Vanity Fair

published on July 2, 2020

– Hello there, my name
is Patrick Warburton

I do cartoon voices for characters

like Kronk from The Emperor's New Groove

You know, Kronk, that guy
who talks to the squirrels

Buzz Lightyear of Star
Command, Booster, Mira, XR

Joe from Family Guy who's a
little bit more officious

He's a cop

Agamemnon from Peabody & Sherman

Ken from the Bee Movie

Oh, Brock Samson, who's a
little edgier from Venture Bros

That really mean elk,

I think it was an elk, from Open Season

Just a host of other characters

I'm gonna see some
characters here, some art,

which I've never seen before and decide

how I might make them sound

As we all know, I'm not a chameleon,

so don't expect miracles

They'll probably all sound

like all the other characters I do

Oh my

So this is a monster, an octopus monster

Boy, he's getting attacked by airplanes

But he doesn't look mean, so he looks like

he's just in the wrong
place at the wrong time

He looks a little goofy

Please don't shoot me

I'm a fish out of the water

I have a feeling that these
jets, they don't really,

they're really not hurting him

They're just going through
his gelatinous body

Ow, that hurts!

Please, stop!

He's no Godzilla

I don't how I ended up here,
but please don't shoot me!


Oh, you know what, this doesn't even hurt

All right, bring it on

These buildings look delicious


Maybe he goes dark

Oh, we have a little bit of a snail here

Just maybe, I'm enjoying a
little bit of this lettuce

No, he's a snail, so
he's not very energetic

He's a little bit,
lettuce is his sedative

Yeah, for a sleepy, for a character

that's not terribly too energetic,

I might just trail off a little bit

every time I start talking about,

you know to the point where you're almost,

you can't even hear what
I'm saying anymore, I guess

I guess I could do this all day

I'm not terribly busy

I just like to creep around
and ruin your garden

That's what I do, I'm a garden ruiner

You know what I hate?

I hate salt

This is just, let's
see, it's a little duck

It's a little duck with boxing gloves

He's got mean eyes


So this guy, this character is probably

ounce for ounce, 'cause it
probably doesn't weigh a pound

We are talking about a
duckling, it looks like


Gosh, maybe he's down here like this


No, that's not right

Sometimes we experiment

Here's a little, a little bit of a duck,

and I'd say he's a little bit of a bully

Yeah, let's bring it here

Let's bring it, hey, I'll pop you one

Here's a character that's
starting to sound a little bit

like almost every other
character I've ever done

What are ya?

Come on!

Put 'em up, what are ya, yella?

Are ya yella?

No, I'm yellow

Put 'em up, put 'em up

Put 'em up there, fella

Put 'em up, put 'em up

You wanna step in the ring with me?

Come on!

I don't feel like I'm
even close in this one

You know what they would say?

Patrick, thank you

We thought this might
work for this character,

but we've got another character in mind

The other one weighs 600
pounds, that's the one for you

Oh my, yes

Here's somebody who runs the corporation


And he's not even afraid that
you can see right through him

He has a smile on his face,
but it's not warm at all

This is a guy who is going to take

every single dime of yours

Let me invest your money


This office didn't buy itself


No, no, no, yes, he's got
his fingers together there

European suit

Yes, he's a swindler

So I think what might
inform him is in his tone,

it's very, very selfish, deceitful

He's a crook

He's probably not trying to hide it

Although it could be
interesting if he was like,

oh, hello, how are you?

He still doesn't hide it well

He's trying to hide it


Did you look at the paperwork?

Did you look at the paperwork?


Well I think that we
have a really nice plan

We know what to do with
your finances, yes

Well, it's a buffalo, this is
a buffalo and he looks sad

He might be a young and a little guy,

but he's still a buffalo, so he still

would be down here like that

It's been rough for me
ever since, you know,

I was just a little fella on the range

He just likes to hoof
around, no pun intended

There's not a lot to be
excited about here, I guess

He's got that big frown, you
know, so it's not exciting

It's not exciting

It's a living

They've been talking about
relocating me to Catalina Island

I guess a lot of us go over there

and then they make buffalo
burgers out of us, and

So that's my future

Oh, this is a creepy

He's a bit of a creepy fellow

It's a big green ogre
we're looking at here,

and he's got some purple hair

And maybe every now and then he just

is gurgling on his snot

I'm gonna knock you over
the head with this stick!

I would say that he probably sounds like,

he probably sounds like
this, maybe, like this, yes

Well, all right, you can cross my bridge

Cross my bridge, you can cross my bridge

I think maybe he sounds a
little gargly like this at times

'cause his jaw doesn't
look like it fits properly

I have a few spots

It's a melanoma on my left shoulder

I have to have that removed!

Oh, hey, these guys just look
like your sort of, you know

These are our charts!

This is like a campaign for some company

and we're gonna keep it
all up and positive energy!



Hi, Bob!

Hi, Phil!



So they would be up here like this

They're obviously not down here

They gotta be full of energy

The perspectives are looking fantastic!

Look at how our charts are going up!

I can't imagine like
the one guy being like,

well, Bob, what do you
think of the charts here?

I think they're fantastic!

I can't believe how good we're doing!

All right, well, he's certainly,

we've got a pig here,
an oinker, a big oinker

He looks a little, does
look a little dopey

So he's probably, he could be like this


Most exciting thing

Riding on a burro

But he figured something out

So this might be his first invention ever

He seems to be very excited

Eat the carrot

I think he's just a big goofy guy

who's just trying to


My name is Oinky

And I have invented the donkey car

It operates on carrot

So as long as I've got
a full tank of carrot,

I'm getting from A to B



Nailed it

Oh, all right

These are men of action here

You know, these are all
hard-boiled characters, maybe

Yeah, you know

Everything's really maybe direct

We got the coppers on us

It's a little dated

It looks like it might be something

from maybe the 40s or the 50s

Come on, boys, let's go!

We don't have all day, let's go!

Eh, coppers!

No respect for the police force


That's it, freeze, hold it!

Hold it right there!

There's your cops

Come on, boys

Let's make a run for it

The guy in the pink might
be, eh, the coppers

I don't like those coppers

They're always trying to stop
us from doing what we do

The bad stuff

Somebody's gotta do the bad stuff

And the guy in the yellow's like,

come on, Jimmy, you're
talking too much, let's go

We're gonna get shot

One of the things that's
a good thing to do

is to be really sort of observant

of all the different
aspects of a character,

'cause that's what informs you

You gotta make sure you
look at the whole thing

before you make a choice, 'cause you might

miss something critical, and
you don't wanna walk away

and go, oh, I shoulda done
this, or I coulda done that

This was an interesting exercise for me,

just looking at things and having to make

an immediate choice on something

I usually like to take a
little time and look at it

You don't always have the luxury of time

Sometimes you have to look at a character

and you gotta come up
with something fast, so

Try to look at the whole
picture and then get creative

As long as you feel inspired,
if you see something

and you feel inspired and you're
like, oh, this could work,

commit to that and you
might have something there

I am Patrick Warburton
and that was my take

on some original animated characters

that I have never seen before

So, thank you so much for watching
