TriviaReferred to in Hollywood as a voice god. Provided the voice for 8 of the original 14 Decepticons in the "Transformers" (1984) cartoon: Megatron, Soundwave, Skywarp, Lazerbeak, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, and Buzzsaw. He voiced two of the original Autobots as well: Trailbreaker and Mirage, as well as one of the Dinobots (Sludge) that also appeared in the first season. Has done voices for both the original Star Trek film series and the television series "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995). In "Tiny Toon Adventures" (1990), he voiced Furrball, Gogo Dodo, Calamity Coyote, Little Beeper, Byron Basset, Uncle Stinky Pig, Henry Bear, and Ralph the Guard who later appeared in "Animaniacs" (1993), where Frank not only voiced Ralph, but also voiced Thaddeus Plotz, Buttons, Runt, Flavio Hippo, and Chicken Boo. Although he never met with the producers or the director Mike Bay, Bay felt his Welker's G1 Megatron voice did not fit the film and Bay's new interpretation. Ironically, he recreated the G1 voice for the "Transformer Game" based on the movie, and was once again reunited with his old nemesis Optimus Prime played by Peter Cullen.
