He also enjoys, immensely, watching a lot of cartoons, where he quickly learned he could imitate many character voices. On last count, he found he could imitate, approximately, 20 cartoon character voices. He also enjoys imitating vocals of classic celebrities who had been animated or had done 'character acting' like Burt Lahr, W.C. Fields, and Edward G. Robinson. He says his main influence for doing his vocal characterizations came from listening to four of his favorite vocal performers of all-time: Mel Blanc, June Foray, Frank Welker, and Peter Cullen. Ted also credits Kelly for helping him get as far as he has in his budding career.
