    Jeesh, a little short with his answers and quite blunt about doing the job purely for the check.
    I guess everyone can't be in touch with the fandom. Either way, he still did his job with dignity and professionalism, and that's the minimum a fan can want from a cartoon's voice actors.

    Eh, Jack Angel always seems to be pretty brief and blunt when it comes to text interviews. In contrast, I gotta point you to this podcast interview I had the pleasure of doing with him earlier this year:

    http://moonbase2.libsyn.com/the-moonbase-2-interviews-jack-angel-

    There is, assuredly, no brevity here! I don't remember how it long it is exactly, but it's got to be 90 mins at least. He's brief and blunt because, as you'll be able to tell from this, at 80 years of age (and having spent 50 years working in voice acting), he's at a point where he really isn't *worried* about what other people think about him! But here we got lots of great, rambly stories about the show's he's working on and his life in general, and some amazing frankness. You'll learn why he's got that "one of a kind in the universe" mentality, too!

    Same with Wally Burr. It's the age thing along with changes in times.

    Yeah, he was short and to the point; there is absolutely no misunderstanding during this interview

    From the interview it was as if he didn't enjoy his work and couldn't careless what he was saying or lending his voice out to.

    What a shame.
