Will Ryan has played numerous voice roles in the entertainment business. His credits include the seahorse in The Little Mermaid, Papa Bear in Looney Tunes: Back in Action and Petrie in The Land Before Time. The Emmy Award-winning producer, lyricist and composer also created Eugene Sings! and voiced Tigger and Rabbit on the Disney Channel's long-running Welcome to Pooh Corner series. Of course, we know and love him as Eugene.


Will Ryan first joined Adventures in Odyssey as the voice of Bill Moorhead in #2: “The Life of the Party”, and is now more well known for voicing Eugene Meltsner. Will Ryan has also played numerous non-recurring characters on the show. In one of his first episodes called #5: “Gifts for Madge and Guy”, he played three of the major characters. His primary character, Officer Harley, was removed from the show after a half a year, following complaints from listeners. This left Will Ryan without a main character on the show, although he continued playing several smaller roles on the show for a while.

Steve Harris had this to say about the situation at that time. "My biggest disappointment at the time [of the Officer Harley dispute] was the prospect of losing Will Ryan, the actor who played Officer Harley. He was too talented and too much fun to work with to let slip away. The character of Eugene was created specifically to prevent that from happening."

Since that time, Will Ryan has continued voicing Eugene for almost two decades, although he took a break from playing the character several years ago during the Novacom Saga.
