Frank Welker is THE MAN!
Holy crap! I can't even beleive it! I really didn't know what all he had done until I clicked on his name and saw it all! Daaaaamn! I honestly thought career voice actors didn't make the big money, but I guess it adds up over time...
That's not the money he made personally. It's the overall money his movies made.
Many voice actors seem to be scoring quite high on that list, presumably because they work in a LOT of films, not necessarily because they are in super-successful films.
Amazing to see the sheer number of roles/jobs Frank has done in all kinds of films (Spock screaming?). My favorites gotta be for the Powerpuff Girls movie, where his role is listed as "Whole Lotta Monkeys!"
Goodness he voiced the evil easter bunny in Bill & ted ?!
Its also sad to see that the My Little Pony Movie made more at the US Box Office than transformers did....
They both kicked the GoBots Movies arse, though!!!
Im sure he made some money, look at all the great movies he was involved in.
The way I see it is any movie you see with animal sounds, that's Frank.
Wheee!!! Go Welker! Kick their asses!!
Just about it! The man can do almost any animal you could ask of him, it's amazing.
i seriously need to break into this career!
Go-Bots: Battle Of The Rock Lords, and TF:TM...
Still...GB:BOTRL kicked more ass than TF:TM in my book. The movies can't be compared.
...I'd love to get my grubby mitts on a DVD of it.
This is based on box office of the film. If Welker made dog noises in a movie then he was in it. It doesn't mean he got paid a lot to do it, just then he was in a film that did well. If you think Welker is making more then Hanks of Ford then you are living on a different planet then Earth. Harrison Ford could proably buy and sell Welker if he wanted, cause he is pulling down over 20 mill a picture and I doubt Welker tops more then 2-3 mill if that even.
That's awesome. Yay Frank Welker!
I'm very suprised to find out he did all these!!!

wow...never would have thought such a "no name" would be at the top of the list! Pish Posh to the people who said welker isn't well known enough to be in the new movie! He's make more money then Harrison Ford LOL.
That list is awesome! Someone show it to Michael Bay before they cast Megatron.
Other cool names on the list:
11. Frank Oz
The Muppets rock! He just misses the top 10.
16. Jack Angel
Another Transformers voice artist, best known as Astrotrain. Too bad he's no longer with us.
17. Jim Cummings
This guy rivals Frank Welker in his versatility. Disney's answers to Mel Blank. And he's originally from Ohio, didn't start his voiceover career until about 30. Best known for his roles as Winnie the Pooh, Pete, Darkwing Duck, Bonkers, Louie, and Don Karnage.
Well when you do a dog bark and are given a credit in a movie they really add up..
TF:TM only made about $4.8mil.. ouch
thats a very interesting statistic.
