Franklin Wendell "Frank" Welker (born March 12, 1946) is an American actor who specializes in voice acting. He is one of the most legendary voice actors in the world, and was once the highest paid actor ever until October 2011 when Samuel L. Jackson took his title. Welker's first notable voice role was Fred Jones in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, a role he has reprised in most subsequent spin-offs and adaptations (he is also the current voice of Scooby-Doo himself since 2002). His range extends to such characters as Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters, Megatron from Transformers, Abu from Disney's Aladdin, Hefty Smurf from The Smurfs, the current voice of Garfield, Curious George in the film and TV series of the same name, Dr. Claw and Brain on Inspector Gadget, Father Time on Histeria!, Santa's Little Helper (the dog) on The Simpsons, and Santa Claus in multiple Christmas specials.

For Nickelodeon, he has voiced Goddard on The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, the wolf from The Rugrats Movie, and Mox and Macqaque Wallah on The Wild Thornberrys.
