Robbie Rist has played Michelangelo in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles original live action movies, cartoons and video games. Plus he’s the musical talent behind Sharknado! At this Retro Con 2019 panel, he talks about his career and answers fan questions.
Robbie Rist was a child actor who played cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch and Doctor Zee in Galactica 1980 (or as he calls it, the crappy Battlestar Galactica). He was Whiz in Kidd Video as well, but nowadays he is known as the voice actor who played Michelangelo in the TMNT live action movie trilogy from the 90’s. Plus he has voiced characters in Naruto, Initial D and Transformers: Robots in Disguise. He also had a role in Sharknado, but wrote the music for the entire Sharknado franchise. His acting and musical talents have earned him a place in the hearts of many fans and he was happy to meet some of them at Retro Con 2019.
