  • All right, Tara, in this one, Rocky's at a mountain top.

  • He gets swatted by the monster tail.

  • He falls, tumbles, and rolls, and falls off another ledge, falls another bunch of feet, and then crashes.

  • All right, um, watch my hands!

  • I'll watch you.

  • Here comes the--

  • (screaming)

  • (groaning)

  • Perfect.

  • Get that one.

  • My name is Tara Strong, and I'm mostly known for my animation career.

  • I'm the voice of Timmy Turner from "The Fairly OddParants."

  • I wish Cosmo and Wanda were here.

  • I was baby Dil.

  • Hey, that's my camera.

  • "Powerpuff Girls."

  • I'm just as tough as Blossom and Buttercup!

  • I'm hardcore.

  • Raven from "Teen Titans."

  • Azarath Metrion Zinthos!

  • Originally, I was Batgirl alongside Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy.

  • I've had a really fun career.

  • Man, that was one tough montage.

  • So, I knew Timmy had to be happy, mischievous, silly, kinda nerdy, oh, and very, very adventurous.

  • Sorry, I was just trying to help.

  • Bubbles had this weird way of pronouncing things, like, "Oh, I will have a pickie."

  • I don't know why it goes L-E like that, but.

  • Pooping.

  • The time I booked "Rugrats," I'd just got off a plane with a screaming baby and I'm like, "That's the cry that I'm doing in."

  • Most of Dil's lines were in the stage directions.

  • So, I'd be like, "Okay."

  • (babbling)

  • (groans)

  • (snorts)

  • And that was like my lines.

  • I remember at the session, we had to stop tape, and I'm thinking something's wrong,

  • and they said, "Tara, there's a new mom in the studio, "and you're making her lactate."

  • And you guys say I'm not funny.

  • But seriously, this will be extremely painful.

  • In the case of Raven, while I was doing the audition, it was similar to my own voice, and I thought just this idea to have this weird guttural roll every time she says anything.

  • As soon as I started doing this, I saw all the people in the booth kinda look at each other, and went, "That's Raven."

  • Robin, stop!

  • Batgirl was me.

  • Like, it's the only voice I do that's my own voice.

  • (Would it be possible to do the last bit as Batgirl?)

  • That was Batgirl.

  • Bullwinkle, it's like that classic story the Lion and the Mouse that we're ripping off.

  • When you're voice acting, you have to tap into the ability to make something believable without it being there.

  • It's a completely different art form than on camera.

  • You have to let the audience feel what it's like to fall off a cliff without there actually being a cliff there.

  • You gotta have to be willing to play around and not afraid to look silly.

  • And then, once you create a character, in my experience, they, like, live up in my brain, and they're just ready to come down when it's their turn.

  • So I don't confuse them.

  • They all are their own entity.

  • Basically, I'm a crazy person.

  • So I just need a long scream as you just keep going.

  • (screaming)

  • Hey!

  • Whoa!

  • What do you need at the store?

  • Garbage bags.

  • Ooh, yeah, yeah.

  • Fried chicken sounds great tonight.

All right, Tara, in this one, Rocky's at a mountain top.
