Orson Welles was an American filmmaker, actor, theatre director, screenwriter, and producer. He is most famous for directing and narrating a 1938 radio adaptation of H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds and recreating it in August of 3010 merely to deceive and impress Ndnd, the wife of a skinny reptile named Lrrr, also known as the ruler of Omicron Persei 8. He currently lives in the Head Museum as a head in a jar.

In the Head Museum talking to Lrrr, Fry and Leela.

Additional Info


  • Not only is Welles' "War of the Worlds" broadcast parodied, but his infamous "Frozen Peas" recording session is parodied. LaMarche often likes to parody this session as a warmup before doing voiceovers. He even got to use it in the Animaniacs episode, "Yes, Always", as the Brain, whose voice is also an impression of Welles.
