Ian James Corlett (born August 29, 1962) is a Canadian voice actor, producer, and author. He is the creator of Studio B Productions' animated series Being Ian and Yvon of the Yukon. One of his best-known animation roles was the voice of Goku in the Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z in the 1990s.
In addition to programming some drum tracks and helping with some computer sequences on Queensrÿche's album Operation: Mindcrime, and also selling the band some music gear in the 1980s, Corlett also lent his voice to several animated series produced/dubbed in Canada. His most notable voice roles included the title character of the Mega Man TV show, Cheetor in Beast Wars: Transformers, Glitch-Bob in ReBoot, and Andy Larkin in What's with Andy?. Another notable, yet brief starring role of Corlett's was Goku in Funimation/Saban's original dub of Dragon Ball Z. Corlett has also lent his voice to less known DIC Entertainment shows such as Super Duper Sumos and Sonic Underground. He also voiced Mr. Cramp in The Cramp Twins. In Salty's Lighthouse, he played Ten Cents, Otis, Zeebee, Zip, Lord Stinker, Frank, Eddie, and the Lighthouse Clock. Corlett is currently set to portray Sly Cooper in the upcoming film of the same name.
Through a coincidence, Corlett who voiced Dr. Wily in DIC's video-game oriented cartoon Captain N: The Game Master would later voice his nemesis Mega Man in the Ruby-Spears cartoon adaptation of the games.
Corlett lives in Vancouver with his wife and two children. Both children, Philip and Claire Corlett, have done voice work for two different animated series, Dinosaur Train and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, respectively.
Corlett is also revealed to have a house in Los Angeles whenever he does any voice-over work there.
