Frank Welker is some kind of voice acting/foley artist genius. If you hear a non-human voice or animal noise in a movie, it's probably Frank Welker.

He was the Gremlins in Gremlins. The Basilisk in Harry Potter. The whale in Finding Nemo. He's everywhere and he's so good at what he does. There's no one like him.

[–]fyhr100 401 points402 points  (26 children)

How do we know he's even human?

[–]stefan_mck 350 points351 points  (25 children)

He's not human, he is a robot. (He voices a bunch of characters in G1 Transformers, including Megatron and Soundwave)

BTW, his Soundwave voice is the same voice he uses for Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget, just run through a synthesizer.

[–]C-Dub1980 63 points64 points  (20 children)

Not just G1. He voiced Megatron in Transformers Prime, Megatron/Galvatron/Soundwave in those shit movies, and Soundwave in Robots in Disguise.

[–]stefan_mck 31 points32 points  (14 children)

True. However the first movie was voiced by Elrond/Agent Smith (can't remember the name right now), as they felt Frank's voice had aged too much, yet it seemed fine enough for all the games and movies since then.

[–]BasketofTits 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Hugo Weaving is the name

[–]Joe_Rogan-Science 19 points20 points  (10 children)

Holy fucking shit, how did I not realize that Elrond and Smith were the same person...

[–]i0datamonster 20 points21 points  (7 children)

Is it a good time to tell you about V

[–]tolman8r 23 points24 points  (5 children)

Kinda funny that he fights against a fascist regime in that movie, because he fights to create one as the Red Skull.

Seriously, he alternates saving or destroying humanity every few years. And yet he's amazing either way.

[–]Joe_Rogan-Science 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Fuck he’s the red skull too!?!?!?

[–]si1versmith 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Let's not mention Rex the dog from babe.

[–]Joe_Rogan-Science 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My life is a lie. I don’t know anything anymore.

[–]Bigred2989 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably the hair and lack of sunglasses.

[–]C-Dub1980 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That is true. I was refering to Megatron in Last Knight. Forgot to mention he also voiced Devastator and Shockwave in the movies as well

[–]ARTIFICIAL_SAPIENCE 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Megatron/Galvatron/Soundwave in those shit movies

Megatron was Hugo Weaving in the Bay films.

[–]Rikuxauron 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Until the most recent, Weller was Megatron in The Last Knight

[–]ARTIFICIAL_SAPIENCE 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hadn't seen it. I would have assumed it was still Galvatron.

[–]neoslith 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Age of Extinction, the humans built bots out of plans from old Megatron's head, but named the new model Galvatron.

Oh no, he turned bad! Then changed his name back to Megatron.

He's been Frank since Galvatron.

[–]waltron1000 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Holy shit Dr Claw was terrifying back in the day!

[–]NYstate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's also the original (and current voice of Freddy Jones of Scooby Doo. Dudes a beast!

[–]Shippoyasha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It must be a fun job just trying to emulate to robot speech and getting paid for it

[–]theotherghostgirl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was thinking he was actually a kenku or a similar bird monster

[–]BloodHyBrId 111 points112 points  (18 children)

If it's not Frank, it's Dee Bradley Baker.

[–]radwolf76 32 points33 points  (8 children)

Or Jim Cummings. Jim is the reason that playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, with the handicap of "only animated films" isn't a handicap at all.

[–]weavves 18 points19 points  (7 children)

I mean Jim is in a ton of stuff but he always sounds like him. He's got a very distinctive voice. Frank is some kind of vocal chameleon.

[–]Mike_Avery 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Jim does good at masking his voice. He took over for Jeremy Irons at the end of "Be Prepared" and most people have no idea that happened.

[–]cronin1024 6 points7 points  (1 child)

But once you know, you can totally tell

[–]Mike_Avery 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yup. It's Tigger all day.

[–]Decipher 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Right... You're trying to tell me Darkwing Duck, Pete (from Disney stuff like Goofy Movie), Tigger, and Winnie the Pooh sound like the same person?

[–]lipidsly 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just imagined Tigger saying “cmon now goof”

Yeah. Its him.

[–]weavves 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't know, they do to me.

[–]neoslith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pooh has a very kind softness in his voice, whereas Tiggwr gets gruff at times.

Pete goes deeper with a rasp and more gutteral sounds.

Then there's Ray the Firefly which is the same way he did the lawn flamingo.

[–]bgzlvsdmb 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Dee Bradley Baker was also Olmec in Legends of the Hidden Temple, as well as Perry the Platypus. He's a legend.

[–]_That_One_Guy_ 13 points14 points  (3 children)

And all the animal noises in Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

[–]Shelverman 9 points10 points  (2 children)

And every single clone trooper in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

[–]Shelverman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Except Steve.

Fuckin' Steve.

[–]lipidsly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh i dont think so

[–]Zorglorfian 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There's a great Phineas and Ferb story where Dee begs Dan and Swampy to have him voice mechanical bull noises instead of having a sound effect. He doesn't win, but it's cool nonetheless.

[–]bgzlvsdmb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's really cool listening to him do the Perry the Platypus noise. He just seems like such a cool guy.

[–]billywilikens 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dumb bird

[–]dcgh96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or before the 80s, it’s Don Messick (May his soul Rest In Peace).

[–]othybear 83 points84 points  (13 children)

Megatron and an assortment of other decepticons

Fred from Scooby-Doo

Wonder Dog

Nibbler from Futurama

Ralph from both Tiny Toons and Animaniacs

Pepe le Pewe (in some looney tunes)

Abu fro Aladdin

Garfield (after the original voice actor died)

Several smurfs

Baby Kermit (Muppet babies)

A bunch of Snorks

A bunch of GI Joes

Slimer in the Ghostbusters cartoon

A bunch of Gummibears

Several Ducktails side characters

The dude was about 35% of my favorite childhood cartoon voices.

[–]Joetato 25 points26 points  (4 children)

He's also Iceman in the old Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends TV series. In addition to Fred from Scooby Doo, he's also Scooby after he took over for... someone. I forget who was doing it before Welker. He was Darkseid in various Superfriends series and more or less sounds like Dr. Claw in them.

He's also one of the highest grossing movie actors of all time because he does animal sounds in so many different movies. It's crazy to think someone in the top 5 (maybe even top 3) highest grossing actors is almost completely unknown to the public. Reading his list of credits on imdb is an all day activity. I'm not even kidding. Go look sometime.

As an aside, I'm mildly annoyed they picked Hugo Weaving over Welker for Megatron in the Transformers movies. Then again, all those movies suck, so who cares? Welker is Soundwave in the movies though and also is Megatron in the video game versions of the movies.

[–]GiantDungBeetle 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Last I saw the top two earners were him and Samuel L Jackson, though I can't remember which order.

And it was Don Messick that did Scooby's original voice. He also did Ratchet in the Transformers cartoon.

[–]galactic_punt 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When Megatron dies and is brought back to life as Galvatron, Welker replaces Hugo Weaving. Unfortunately, it's just like you said; those movies suck and there's really no saving them.

[–]masterfulsky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

no when megatron dies and is brought back to life as galvatron, leonard nimoy replaces welker.

[–]Not_MrNice 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Here, have some of these: ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[–]tolman8r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Someone should make a take-a-comma, leave-a- comma bot. Like, start with 10,000 commas and see how long they last. Add excess commas from run-on sentences.

[–]Lurking4Answers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Have you heard of commas? EDIT: Much better!

[–]GiantDungBeetle 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Don't forget Ray Stanz from the Ghostbusters cartoon too.

[–]kirabean 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I've heard that the design for cartoon Ray was actually based on Frank Welker.

[–]GiantDungBeetle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh that's cool, and I can totally see it now.

[–]thedevilsdelinquent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He played Nibbler?!

[–]MjrJWPowell 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I mean look at his imdb page, it's mostly specialized animal noises Also this.

[–]methinksnot 5 points6 points  (0 children)

out of context the end of that video is utterly hilarious.

[–]donjuansputnik 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Nibbler from Futurama too!

[–]weavves 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Both speaking voice and critter noises, even, which is pretty cool.

He also did Santa's Little Helper and Snowball II on The Simpsons.

[–]Howzieky 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Well there is someone like him. Dee Bradely Baker, I think. He did all the animal noises in Avatar the last Airbender, plus several characters

[–]brb1006 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And the singing voice of Mr Krabs in one episode of Spongebob.

[–]patcriss 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Mike Patton is pretty insane as well, tho he specializes in screams. He's the voice of the creatures from I am Legend. He voiced in a couple of video games too - the anger core from Portal, lots of the infected sounds (smoker and hunter iirc) in left 4 dead and the voice actor of the darkness from... The darkness.

[–]BeeCJohnson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I was shocked to hear he did the Darkness voice with no modulation or tricks. That's just his fucking voice.

[–]patcriss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, when you hear him sing it's not really that shocking!

[–]Kronos6948 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You talking about "Faith No More" and "Mr. Bungle" Mike Patton?

[–]BornInTheRSA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also the guy with the largest vocal range of any singer.

[–]patcriss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, that Mike Patton.

[–]radwolf76 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He's everywhere

Used to be that if you ranked actors by the box office gross of all the films they've ever had an acting credit in Welker was at the very top of the list. Then Samuel L. Jackson and Stan Lee started showing up in every Marvel movie and finally knocked him out of the top slot.

[–]EvryMthrF_ngThrd 6 points7 points  (2 children)

There was a great bit during an interview I was watching on YouTube with several VO Artists and Peter Cullen said he was watching Frank Welker recording lines in a studio and the Foley mixer stopped him, because he was getting walk-over from the lines (two people saying their lines at the same time) but Frank was alone in the booth. I can believe it.

[–]dankmernes 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So he is possessed by demons that he occasionally lets out. Mmm.

[–]EvryMthrF_ngThrd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No no no - that he occasionally lets speak... BIG difference.

[–]pepperPill25 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So Frank Welker is the Gary Oldman of sound?

[–]platyviolence 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Keep in mind foley artists also digitally manipulate recorded sounds. It's not like Frank is some sort of mutant able to make inhuman noises.

[–]PM-YOUR-PMS 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's absolutely baffling how much Welker is in. He's got a stronghold on voice acting sound effects and foley.

[–]vitxalmour 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He sounds more like a dog than my dog.

[–]bolanrox 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The anaconda from anaconda, the knife thing from the shadow etc.

[–]-FoeHammer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Talk about finding yourself a niche.

[–]NarwhalCommander 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also a dog. He voiced a non speaking dog in I believe Space Jam

Edit:Space Jam for sure but also Max the dog in How the Grinch Stole Christmas

[–]Shonisaurus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The other person being Dee Bradley Baker. How the hell does he do the Perry the Platypus noise?

[–]Cemetary 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bro he is Megatron first.

[–]ArrowRobber 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I read this as 'the basket in Harry Potter' and I really really impressed for a second. How do you voice act a basket?!

[–]Zorglorfian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Frank Welker probably can!

[–]babytimekade1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i mean it’s not too hard to have that many voices when they are edited the way they are.

[–]neoslith 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Talk about obscure choices. Some of those seem sort of random, but...

He was also:

  • Freddy from Scooby-Doo

  • Ray in The Real Ghostbusters, as well as Slimer

  • Abu from Aladdin

  • Megatron from OG Transforms, Transformers Prime, and Age of Extinction (okay, Galvatron)

  • Nibbler from Futurama

  • Monkey from Dexter's Lab

[–]ravenofshadow 296 points297 points  (14 children)

Fun fact: Frank Welker is also the voice of Megatron. Dude has range.

edit: am dumb, other cybernetic being.

[–]zham60 114 points115 points  (11 children)

He's Megatron, not Optimus. Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime.

[–]ravenofshadow 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Dang that's what I meant, thank you stranger!

[–]blaghart3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Peter Cullen is a god. He and Steve Blum are the entire reason Toonami was so popular, he could literally make anything sound awesome

[–]fluffyxsama 0 points1 point  (0 children)

:| I thought Liam Neeson was Optimus i'm dumb

[–]ballistic90 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He also did Soundwave, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Laserbeak, and a bunch of others.

[–]Blaquedynamight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His Megatron on Prime is the most amazing bit of villain work he's done

[–]Wild_Garlic 134 points135 points  (2 children)

A selection of his career. This is a pretty old video so its missing a lot of his newer work, but its a huge list nonetheless.


[–]Twelvety 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What the hell, how is this even humanly possible!

[–]Nerdican 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always thought there was a certain style to these voices and sound effects. Now I know that's because it's actually all just one person.

[–]blinddivine 62 points63 points  (6 children)

frank welker was also Abu in Aladdin. this dude is one of the many voices of childhood.

[–]TaylorDangerTorres 33 points34 points  (5 children)

Dude he's Fred from Scooby Doo. Has been since the 60s. Hes STILL fred.

[–]FinnSke 16 points17 points  (0 children)

He’s Nibbler from Futurama too.

[–]Digital_Fire 8 points9 points  (1 child)

He's also been Scooby for a while now.

[–]Casimir_III 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He does most of the random animals in the series too, such as the lion in Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.

[–]blinddivine 5 points6 points  (0 children)

oh yes. he's also scooby too!

[–]Kronos6948 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's pretty close to his normal speaking voice, so not much wear and tear on the vocal cords for him on that. Imagine if Dr. Claw had been around since the 60's and had the longevity that Scooby Doo has...

[–]fisk0_0 157 points158 points  (8 children)

[–]nmase 73 points74 points  (4 children)

How the hell does a human make that noise

[–]Hexodus 36 points37 points  (0 children)

By roaring into a metal trash can, duh.

[–]shadow21812 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I taught myself to do a similar roar when I was younger when I used to play with my friends and pretend to be lions/ dragons. Fun times

[–]shnoog 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Oh you were that guy.

[–]kuhanluke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A lot of it is sinus control.

[–]dynamojoe 24 points25 points  (0 children)

The guys at the console totally playing it cool. "Yeah, that's good" should have been "Holy shit you're amazing!"

[–]jmdg007 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My first thought was just him doing this in an alley outside the studio, the video is disappointing

[–]MQ2000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is that throat bass?

[–]Joetato 34 points35 points  (7 children)

Frank Welker is a voice acting God. Generally, when people talk about the best voice actor, they tend to say it's Mel Blanc. While Blanc is amazingly amazing and Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies couldn't have existed without him, I think Welker wins just on variety and longevity.

[–]waltron1000 15 points16 points  (2 children)

You have to see the famous clip of Mel doing Elmer Fudd doing a Bugs Bunny and Bugs Bunny doing an Elmer Fudd in the same scene. I butchered that explanation but hopefully you catch my drift

[–]blade2255 21 points22 points  (1 child)

[–]waltron1000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you!

Also a great documentary! Didn't know I would like it so much.

[–]shokalion 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I've always thought Mel Blanc's voices all sound pretty similar.

I mean when you look at Jim Cummings, or Billy West for example, their voices (while they do have some that are comparable to one another) can sound utterly different.

[–]Joetato 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Mel Blanc did Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam and Porky Pig. Those seem pretty different to me.

Billy West is pretty talented, though. And I'm actually not sure who Jim Cummings voices, so I don't have an opinion there.

[–]redking315 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Darkwing Duck, Pete (Goof Troop), Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Tasmanian Devil are the ones off the top of my head. Oh and Razoul from Aladdin, one of tbe guards.

(As another fun fact, Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, has been the voice of Eeyore since the 80s)

[–]shokalion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought Elmer Fudd was someone different, at least the old original cartoons, but in any case listen to Daffy compared to Bugs though. It's subjective in any case, I just think when he's described as the man of a thousand voices, a lot of them are similar with either an accent of a vocal tic, like a lisp or something, added on.

Jim Cummings voiced for example Ed in the lion king, the nuts laughing hyena, he voiced the main guard in Aladdin, Winnie the Pooh after Sterling Holloway died (so since the eighties basically), as well as tons of other bits and pieces, TV and movie work.

[–]milesunderground 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I think it was on the Futurama commentaries, but they mention working with Frank Welker. In one scene they told him they needed him to make the sound of some ducks quacking for background and he asked, "How many?"

[–]thecave 43 points44 points  (8 children)

As a person who lives in a country with quite a few lions, it's pretty clear that very few people (even here!) know what their roar sounds like. It's pretty weird. Super eerie. I think we probably have a species memory. But it's not a roar the way people imagine. And I'm guessing the film producers don't like that much.

It's a sort of bassy "HEEEE-YEUGH" with a decending pitch on the second part. And it's used to communicate. Not in anger. Lions snarl and growl when angry.

[–]TripleChubz 58 points59 points  (6 children)

Example https://youtu.be/1e0_4dwF9A4

They sound closer to Jurassic Park Dino’s than any movie lion.

I camped a night at a zoo with my 5th grade class. Lions made those noises all night probably no more than 30 meters away from our camp site in the park. It was a surreal night to say the least.

[–]Deceasedtuna 15 points16 points  (0 children)

To be honest, this sound makes so much more sense for them than the movie lion sound. It seems to fit them.

[–]waltron1000 10 points11 points  (2 children)

He sounds fed up and he just wants to get laid. I feel you buddy

[–]TripleChubz 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yeah, his lonely calls pretty much sum up how I feel right now. :(

[–]MQ2000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow, sounds like a bear

[–]314159265358979326 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Okay, both of my cats are now worked up.

[–]Waimbes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not that it's necessarily authentic, but in the video in the link he's pretty much only snarling and growling.

[–]skyrous 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Everyone talks about the characters he voices but that's not really his specialty. it's the random noises... like lions roaring that he does better than anyone else.

Here's the opening to the original scooby doo in 1969. Those bats that flyby before the song start's? that's him. In the age before synthesizers and you needed the sound of a flock of bats what does that sound like? and how do make that sound? You call Frank Welker.

[–]KyngGeorge 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wow, I think I'm going to go get a bowl of cereal and watch some cartoons for a few hours. That really takes me back, haha.

[–]Oakfeather 16 points17 points  (4 children)

I thought I remembered reading that they used tiger sound clips...

[–]rituallystoned 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Oh sure, Frank Welker starts screaming into garbage cans they put him in the movies. I start screaming into garbage cans, they put me in an asylum.

[–]wrath4771 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Frank Welker will always amaze me. The guy who gave us Megatron and Uni.

[–]bolanrox 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Why am I not shocked that Frank was involved in this some how

[–]Zekumi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I've heard him a million times without realizing it. Here's a variety of clips of his voices. https://youtu.be/jnF5gpn8k5Y

He even did the sounds for Cujo.

[–]MistaPerfekt 14 points15 points  (2 children)


[–]MistaPerfekt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll add to this - if you IMDb him.....he has a prodigious work history. Probably my favorite ever VA

[–]SquidSledge 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Also the voice of Fred on Scooby-Doo and Frank "Grimey" Grimes on The Simpsons. Dude is everywhere in that industry.

EDIT: Never mind - Grimey is Hank Azaria. My bad. I thought for sure it was Welker. Perhaps the shared first name.

[–]Googunk 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He is Santa's little helper.

[–]Piccleman 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Lol. Shared first name. "Hey Frank, wanna share that ANK?" "Sure Hank."

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No, no...Frank Grimes and Frank Welker. Also, he was the voice of the Executive Dog in that episode, so I must've seen his name in the credits and made an incorrect assumption.

[–]cultsuperstar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's been Fred from the very beginning too. Just about every Scooby-Doo show, spin-off, and movie.

[–]dangil 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More than meets the eye

[–]FuzzyMcBitty 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On one of the Futurama commentaries, Billy West talks about how Frank Welker is the guy you call when you want a flock of geese in one take. He said that Frank knew Elvis, and Elvis'd be all, "Do a dog, Frank!"

[–]Bealzebubbles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apparently he can do a flock of geese in one take.

[–]Tristan_Afro 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Read the first half of that title just expecting it to say they used tiger roars instead, like how media generally uses red-tailed hawk cries for eagles.

Had to stop and rethink my life there for a second after reading the rest.

[–]Jellyna 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I was a teen, a circus would stay near my house for a few day every year. On sunset and dawn, the lions would roar. It was nothing like the lion king. It was so much more. The only sound that ever had a similar effect on me was the final cry of the fantom of the opera in London. You can feel it resonate in your ribcage. I found it oddly soothing like laying in bed during a storm.

[–]adbleke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How it should be.

[–]RandallOfLegend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I recall Frank Welker also doing the animal sounds for safari style shows. They often filmed from far away, and needed to dub the animals.

[–]Cemetary 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Megatron. That is all.

[–]krabstarr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't that how real lions make their sound?

[–]AmericanChoirboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]gold_elite41 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought for sure it was on the other side of the list.

[–]AnneBancroftsGhost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another fun fact: the sounds of car engines in films is not a straight recording but actually a mix of engine sounds and a real lion's roar.

[–]inanutshellus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy moly that makes so much sense! I've always both loved that roar and thought it sounded nothing like a lion. Metal trash can! Ha!

[–]SociopathicAutobot 0 points1 point  (0 children)
