Telltale regular discusses voicing on Sam & Max, Monkey Island 16 Jul, 2022 / 1 comment

If you’re not paying attention to, you’re decidedly not part of the cool crowd. The site’s latest feature is an interview with voice actor Chuck Kourouklis, a recurring cast presence in the Telltale catalog. His more notable roles were Mr. Norrington in Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse and the Ferryman to the pirate crossroads in Tales of Monkey Island.

What were the recording sessions like for Sam & Max?

Damn difficult in one respect – like many of the best-written projects, you fall apart like Harvey Korman in a Carol Burnett skit (am I giving you all some wild stuff to Google and YouTube or what?) Seriously, you just break up and collapse laughing in the most inopportune moments, and Sam & Max was MURDER that way. I hope at least there was a writer gratified to hear how he wrecked my professionalism, somewhere in the creative chain…

Read his recollections in full, and look forward to re-experiencing his Sam & Max performance in higher quality whenever Skunkape can get that Season 3 remaster to you.

And speaking of Sam & Max voice actors, let me quickly work in this month-old tweet of a fan’s happy run-in with Bill Farmer, the original Sam and parenthetically the voice of Goofy.

    Speaking of the Sam & Max Telltale Games, I'd advise anyone looking to marathon the games to skip Save the World. It's got genuine laughs and I think they did a good job with the characters, but I felt drained after finishing it. I think it was just too repetitive for the length of 6 episodes, especially if you're the kind of player that wants to explore everything instead of going straight to the puzzles. I've heard Seasons 2 are 3 are generally considered to be better, so they might even be best for newcomers to start with. Could just be me, though. Maybe I played it wrong, or too much too fast.
