William Richard "Billy" West (born April 16, 1952) is an American voice actor, singer, musician, and songwriter. He is best known for his wide vocal range and roles in Ren & Stimpy (initially as Stimpy, but was cast to be Ren when John Kricfalusi [the showrunner as well Ren's first voice actor] was fired by Nickelodeon), Extreme Ghostbusters (as the voice of Slimer), Men in Black: The Series (as the voice of Jack Jeebs), Doug (as the voice of the title character and his bully, Roger Klotz on the original Nickelodeon version; West was recast when Doug was revived as a Disney cartoon), and Futurama (as the voices of Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Zapp Brannigan [who was originally going to be voiced by Saturday Night Live cast member Phil Hartman, but Hartman was murdered before he was called in to record lines], Richard Nixon's head in a jar, Doctor John Zoidberg, and various one-shot and background characters.

West is also one of many modern-day voice actors hired to voice Looney Tunes characters in modern-day Warner Bros. projects. West mostly voices Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd (replacing Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan), though in "Toonenstein: Dare to Scare" he voiced Tiny Toon Adventures character, Hamton J. Pig, replacing Don Messick.
