William Richard "Billy" West (born on April 16th, 1952) is an American voice actor, comedian, singer, musician, songwriter, and former radio personality, who is best know for his roles on The Ren & Stimpy Show, M&M's commercials and Futurama.

Initially, he was going to voice Ren and Stimpy, but they decided that two voices was too much for him, so he voiced the latter instead; after John Kricfalusi left, he voiced both of them as was originally planned.

He co-wrote the episode "Ol' Blue Nose".

He also voiced Stimpy in the video game Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots.

Billy West voiced Stimpy throughout the course of the series, and replaced John Kricfalusi as the voice actor for Ren when John was fired after Season 2, although several episodes in the later part of Season 2 had Ren voiced by Billy West.

West chose not to return for Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon", as he did not like the series himself, believing that involvement of it would damage his career and predicted that the series would end very soon (to which his prediction came true since the series only lasted for six episodes).
