His broad spectrum of character voices, noises and other vocal effects that have appeared over the last 40 years in motion pictures, have vaulted him to number one on the "All Time Top 100 Stars at the Box office" list. The revenue of films he has participated in have generated over 12 billion dollars worldwide. His work in over 90 films has put him ahead of Eddie Murphy, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and Samuel L. Jackson.

Although he never met with the producers or the director Michael Bay, Bay felt his Welker's G1 Megatron voice did not fit the film and Bay's new interpretation. Ironically, he recreated the G1 voice for Transformers: The Game (2007) based on the movie, and was once again reunited with his old nemesis Optimus Prime played by Peter Cullen.

One of the most prolific voice actors of all time, he has been involved with some of the most popular and important animated series of all time as well, beginning with his role as level-headed leader Fred Jones on "Scooby-Doo", the evil Decepticon leader Megatron on The Transformers (1984) (among others), Dr. Ray Stantz on The Real Ghostbusters (1986), and a variety of supporting roles on G.I. Joe (1985), Tiny Toon Adventures (1990), Animaniacs (1993) and The Smurfs (1981).

His "Doctor Claw" voice is arguably his most famous role. Aside from playing Doctor Claw on Inspector Gadget (1983), he has used the voice for other characters, such as Darkseid on SuperFriends: The Legendary Super Powers Show (1984), Emperor Krulos on Dino-Riders (1988), Soundwave on The Transformers (1984) (only heavily modified with a vocoder, to give it a distinct monotone, robotic sound), as well as in movies such as the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin (1992), Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat (1995), Soundwave again in both Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) (without the vocoder effects), as well as playing the Devil in four movies: The Golden Child (1986), All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989), Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) and Spawn (1997).

His "Doctor Claw" voice came about as a result of him trying to do an impression of singer-songwriter Barry White.
