Charles Fleischer has garnered more fame for a role in which he was heard but not seen rather than for his often manic comedy and comedy-with-music acts. While such performances have made him a favorite of other comedians, they did not gain him top-rung status with the general public. But audiences loved him as the voice of the animated Roger Rabbit, the frenetic movie star Fleischer inhabited for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988) and several subsequent cartoon shorts. He also did other voices for the films, including Benny The Cab and the two sinister weasels, Greasy and Psycho. Additionally, Fleischer has provided voices for other animated films and TV programs as well.
