Bill Farmer quoted in Los Angeles Times article on Minnie Mouse voice action, Russi Taylor

by on Jun.24, 2014, under Elsewhere, News

Bill was quoted in this Los Angeles Times article about Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse for the last 28 years!


I don’t know anybody in the world who is as lucky as I am,” said Taylor, who has a splash of pink in her whitish-blond hair. “I work with the best people.”

Her co-workers return the feeling.

“Russi has the tendency to get the giggles,” said Bill Farmer, a longtime friend who is the voices of Goofy and Pluto. “When she starts laughing sometimes it’s very difficult for her to stop. It is a blast.

“She embodies Minnie. What she adds is a large part of her personality to the character.”

 When she was a young girl, Russi Taylor and her family visited Disneyland, where she had a close and remarkable encounter with Walt Disney himself.

“It was night time and we had just gotten off of the Mark Twain” boat ride. “There was a man sitting on the bench. We went past him to get popcorn.”

Taylor, who was a big fan of Disney’s TV series, knew the man sitting alone was Disney, but her mother didn’t believe her. “She said, ‘Honey, it couldn’t be.’” So her mother walked over and asked him if he was Uncle Walt. He told her he was. “My mother sat down and they started talking.”

Bill was interviewed recently for the Media Mikes blog. You can read the entire interview on their site.

Disney Legend, Bill Farmer talks about voicing Goofy and new Disney Junior series “The 7D” with Media Mikes

You may not know the name Bill Farmer but you will certainly know his voice. He has been voicing Goofy and Pluto for nearly 30 years and was named a Disney Legend in 2009. Bill also has voiced tons of other notable characters including Foghorn Leghorn, Sylvester the Cat and Yosemite Sam in the film ”Space Jam”. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Bill about his voice roles and what we can expect from the new Disney Junior series “The 7D”.

Mike Gencarelli: You’ve been voicing Goofy and Pluto for nearly 30 years; what is it like hold these reigns for so long?

Bill Farmer: I think for any voice actor you can consider it a great honor to get a long lasting character. It is very competitive out here. Especially to get one of the Disney characters, I think it is one of the highest honors you can get in animation. Goofy was also my favorite Disney character growing up as a kid, which only made it that much sweeter that I ended up voicing him all these years.

MG: Do you feel that voicing characters like Goofy have changed for you the years?

BF: Voicing Goofy has certain changed my LIFE for the better. I first came to California as a stand-up comic. I had no idea that I would be voicing a character like Goofy. The audition came to me and it was very out of left field. I got a tape of Pinto Colvig and practiced it over the weekend. Then I went in and laid it down at the agency and about a month later they told me that I was going to get to do a Goofy job. I didn’t know if it was going to be more than one but after 27 years they are still using me. So (in Goofy’s voice) “Gaush, I guess I got lucky”.

A Goofy Milestone for Disney Legend Bill Farmer from DisneyParks Blog

Bill Farmer Interviewed for Disney Files Magazine

Some kids take offense at being called goofy. Bill Farmer took it as professional advice. Born with the gift of comedic gab, Bill has turned his ability to channel stars both real and imagined into an illustrious show-business career involving a colorful array of animated characters. None are nearer or dearer to his heart than Goofy, the iconic character to whom Bill has lent his voice for decades.

As this week marks the milestone 25th anniversary of Bill’s career going Goofy, I sat down with the Disney Legend for an interview that’ll appear in a special Goofy-tribute issue of Disney Files Magazine scheduled to begin mailing to Disney Vacation Club members next month.

Here are three of my favorite Bill quotes from our visit:
