Interview: Terry McGovern Talks Voice Acting & Launchpad McQuack


Terence McGovern is possibly one of the most memorable voice actors from the days of Disney’s Afternoon. From Ducktales to Darkwing Duck, we knew Terry as the voice of the lovable but accident-prone Launchpad McQuack. Mr. McGovern’s decades-long career includes roles in Mrs. Doubtfire, THX-1138, and several video games.

It was my great privilege to talk to Mr. McGovern this week about his experiences in front of the camera and behind the microphone. What words of wisdom does he have for up-and-coming artists looking to break into the industry? Check out our interview below as we reminisce and look to the future.

I want to thank Terry again for taking the time out of his day to speak with us. We also thank him for all the memories he gave Generation X as we grew up watching Launchpad crashing planes but continuing to be a hero with a heart of gold.

Thank you, Terry. It has been an honor to speak with you.
