WILL RYAN voiced Footloose from the original G.I. Joe cartoon series and is a versatile voice actor, or, to use a neologism of his own coining, "cineloquist". Will can be heard performing some of his many voice characterizations in thousands of television episodes and commercials, hundreds of radio episodes and some of the most popular animated films ever made. He has evidently performed more featured parts in more Academy Award-nominated animated films than any other actor. Face it; he’s everywhere!
Among Will’s many well-known voices are Tigger, Rabbit and the singing voice of Eeyore on the Disney Channel’s “Welcome to Pooh Corner” series, broadcast twice daily for 16 years. Will created the voice of the loveable pterodactyl Petrie for George Lucas and Steven Spielberg in “The Land Before Time” animated feature. He portrayed Papa Bear in “Looney Tunes: Back in Action!” He has also been featured in Spielberg’s “An American Tail” and in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” He voiced Goofy for Disney for three years and gave vocal life to Yosemite Sam on several occasions for Warner Bros.
Will Ryan is also a entertaining composer and lyricist. His songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as the Pointer Sisters, Patti LaBelle and Mister T on the one hand, and Donald Duck, the Cat in the Hat, Winnie the Pooh and the Muppets on the other.
Although Will’s home is the United States, he has performed and recorded throughout the world.
