Put the kids to bed – uncensored Kevin Michael Richardson interview posted!

A short while ago, myself and my compatriots with the What’s on Joe Mind podcast had the unquestionable pleasure to sit down and interview Kevin Michael Richardson.  Fans of animation know this fellow’s work very well.  His recent role as Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Renegades is of course what brought him to our podcast, but he currently provides voices for Panthro in Thundercats, Bulkhead in Transformers: Prime, Kilowog in Green Lantern, as well as Cleveland Jr. on the Cleveland Show.  This guy is literally in everything.

As usual when we talk to folks in the industry, we don’t always know what to expect…  but I can say without hesitation that Mr. Richardson was one of the funniest and nicest guys we’ve ever had a chance to speak with, and we’ve spoken to a lot of folks over the past year.

But he also has the mouth of a sailor!  We loved it, and had an absolute blast during the interview, but feel it necessary to warn those with sensitive ears that he’s not afraid to drop some bombs.  We will be posting a more family friendly edited version along with episode 48 very shortly, but this guy was so hilarious that we just had to get an unedited version of the interview up, too, because we knew many fans would love it.  So, big props to Gary for getting this posted on a Friday afternoon, and without further hesitation, hit up our Facebook Page or click the link below to have a listen.  We guarantee you don’t want to miss this one!

  1. OMG!! That was an awesome interview. So glad you guys let us hear the uneditted version. It definately wont have the punch editted. Thanks

  2. Wow, that was an entertaining interview. Great work, guys. Thanks.
    Please bring back Renegades, Hasbro!

  3. Jeez. I listened to this interview and then the Nerdist podcast with Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche. In the space of ten minutes I heard Roadblock, Pinky, and The Brain using the fouler language than I can imagine.

  4. He is exactly correct in his assertion that the toy sales had something to do with it. This is an unfortunate side effect of the “toy-tie in cartoon” entity that has pervaded the animation industry. I watched many great animated series die off because the sponsors and toy manufacturers simply refused to continue the toy line that was the backbone of the animated series that represented it. This is also how the critics against child television programs became more powerful as the decades of kids shows wore on. Many cried foul that most cartoons based on toys were little more than 30 minute commercials for the toys themselves and stifled kids imaginations.
