Behind the Voices Of Kit Cloudkicker: Alan Roberts

2nd Update: 05/04/2020: New Webpage to account for Alan Roberts' work. Alan Roberts' profile completed.

R.J. Williams was not the first voice of Kit Cloudkicker and thanks to Ducktales 2020, he won't be the last. In fact, according to the debut order worldwide, I Only Have Ice For You was the first episode aired on Disney Channel, therefore the first voice of Kit was Alan Roberts. Jymn Magon was the voice director at the time, before Ginny McSwain took over. Alan did most of the Disney Channel episodes and two full syndication episodes, along with parts of the Bad Reflection On You two parter, before Ginny McSwain decided to change actors to R.J. Williams. Alan was adopted and worked on mostly commercials and a few cameos on television. Like R.J. Williams; his career as an adult is involved in the entertainment industry, but not in acting. R.J. Williams became a director/producer, while Alan worked as a special effects artists. (Source: DAF Radio Interview with Alan Roberts, April 2019 which is available on Facebook somewhere.)
