During the 1980s Paulsen also explored the field of live action cinema. His first movie was 'Eyes of Fire' in 1983. Robert appeared in television shows during this time as well, such as MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. However Paulsen preferred to work on shows for children. He mentioned in an interview, regarding his role in 'Body Double', that he would not want his child to see the movie, so he could not really be proud of his work. Robert's first major role was in 1987, as Raphael in the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' television series. He also did a number of characters in Tiny Toon Adventures, including Fowlmouth, Arnold the Pit Bull, and Concord Condor.
Rob also currently does the roles of "Jack Fenton", "Box Ghost", and "Technus" in 'Danny Phantom', "Carl Wheezer" in 'Jimmy Neutron', "Mark Chang" and "Peppy Happy Gary" of 'The Fairly OddParents', and "Gordon" on the Nickelodeon cartoon 'Catscratch'.
