Lars Junker Thiesgaard

Lars JUNKer Thiesgaard (b. 1959) is a Danish voice actor, who voiced Miss Piggy, Fozzie, & various other characters in Muppets Fra Rummet & Muppets Juleeventyr. He voiced Cookie Monster, Bert & Hoots the Owl in Leg med os fra Sesamgade & Elmers Verden. He also voiced various characters in Elmo i Surmuleland (The Adventures of Elmo in GROUCHland). He voiced Eliot Shag, Bugsy Vile, Bruno & many others in Hundekøbing (Dog City).

He ended up doing Fozzies voice in the Norwegian dub of The Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppets Juleeventyr. The reason for it was that they had problems finding a fitting Norwegian voice for the character. Since he already had learned some Norwegian years before, he volunteered to reprise the role. The Norwegian dubbing director would say the lines, so he could learn the correct pronunciation, before the line was recorded.[1]

He graduated from Odense acting school in 1983. Since 1989, he has primarily worked as a voice actor, were he has worked on hundreds of cartoons & other voice over projects. He has also served as voice director & taught classes at Odense acting school in voice work.

He is the official voice for the Disney characters Pumbaa the Warthog, Piglet, & Black Pete. Other characters include Bob the Builder, Cow & Chickens arch nemesis Red Guy, Johnny Bravo, Scooby-Doo & YODA in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. His favorite character to dub is Pumbaa the Warthog.[2]
