FROM THIS EPISODE

We look at the art of the often heard -- but never seen -- voice actor. Three veterans -- Rob Paulsen, Robbie Rist and Lara Jill Miller -- give us their secrets to success and share why some top level on-camera actors have trouble with voice acting. Our guests can be heard in Doc McStuffins, a new Disney Junior animated series about a six-year-old girl who heals sick toys with the help of her stuffed animal sidekicks. Rist and Miller play those sidekicks, and Paulsen is a recurring character. This is the latest in a long line of credits for these three that includes Animaniacs, Clifford's Puppy Days, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Jimmy Neutron. They all started out on-camera (Rist was cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch, and Miller played Samantha, the youngest girl in the 80's sit-com Gimme a Break) but now nearly 100 percent of their work is voice acting.
