GALAXY HIGH INTERVIEWS!
Pat Fraley's website
PAT FRALEY (voice of Coach Frogface and Sludge) shares his memories of working on Galaxy High which he calls a "real high point!" -Where were the voice recording sessions done at? We record in a very large room at B&B Studios in Burbank (now closed). It had to be large as the entire cast was present for each and every session. -What was it like working with legends Howard Morris and John Stephenson? Howard Morris is such a wild and wooley guy. John Stephenson is the "gentleman of the microphone". He's always been from the "old school" inasmuch as he's a complete pro, and a wonderful talent. -Did you ever meet Chris Columbus the series creator or Don Felder? No. -What other shows were you working on at the time? It was a very active time for animation voice over work. Around '85 and '86 I was a regular on shows like: Bravestarr, The Original Ghostbusters, Lazer Tag Academy, The Centurions, The feature length animated films, The Adventures of the American Rabbit and Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer, Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N' Wrestling, Rainbow Brite, Here Come the Littles, Robotix, and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. -Do you know if Galaxy High was supposed to be renewed for another season or what was planned beyond the first 13 episodes? Don't know. As you can see by the amount of sessions I was doing at that time, I was moving from one session to another each day, recording about 9 or 10 shows a week. Each show took an average of 3-4 hours to do. -How did you come up with the voice for Coach Frogface? As I recall, I did a trick of talking while inhaling air for a frog effect. Something I probably picked up playing on the monkey bars in third grade. It was a little trick I employing on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the role of Krang. -Were you impressed with the animation and how the show turned out? I never saw a single finished show. I know that might sound crazy, but in a years time, I recorded 300-400 episodes of various animated TV show, and just didn't have time to watch TV. I look forward to seeing them one of these days. -Were you happy with the storylines and messages of the show? I can't remember. I just remember how hard I laughed recording the shows. I mean, with Danny Mann, David Lander, and the like, it was too funny. -Did you like the theme song and background music made by Don Felder? I don't remember. -What was your favorite episode if any? I can't remember a single one. -Did you all have outtakes and have fun recording your voices? I don't have outtakes but had a hoot recording. -What are you up to these days? I supply the voice of Buzz Lightyear for everything past the movies-rides at the parks, CD-ROMS, toys, etc. I also supply voices for films like Monsters Inc., Toy Story II, Chicken Little, and The Wild. I also teach a great deal these days. It's time that I pass on some of the tricks of the trade that I've learned over these past thirty-two years doing voices. -Do you think a revival of Galaxy High could happen in these times? I'd be there in a heartbeat, but don't know of any plans. -Do you own any of the episodes to watch or have you been able to see the show recently? No. -Are you still in contact with any of the other cast members? I see about four or five of the cast members in an irregular basis at jobs. Always a joy. -Do you have anything else to share about Galaxy High? Not that comes to mind, but as you can tell, I apparently don't have much mind left. After creating about 4,000 character voices, I'm lucky to find my car keys. Thank you so much Mr. Fraley! Feb 27, 2006
