Michelle Ruff on SEGA reusing old Cream the Rabbit recordings
Cream the Rabbit voice actress Michelle Ruff told The Natural Aristocrat® that SEGA has been reusing her old voice recordings for years instead of getting her back in the booth.
THE NATURAL ARISTOCRAT (NIR REGEV): Is voicing Cream the Rabbit from Sonic one of your guilty pleasures in the dub world?
MICHELLE RUFF: So with Cream the Rabbit, I recorded her back in 2010 for Sonic Colors. Well, they reused my recordings for future projects and apparently, I had signed something giving them permission to do that.
I don’t remember, but all of these future Sonic games that have come out with Cream the Rabbit in them, I have made no money off of them at all.
Everybody’s like, ‘You’re Cream the Rabbit in all these games!’ Sonic at the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Sonic at the Winter Olympics 2016. And I’m like, I did not record one line for any of those games.
They just lifted what I did from 2010. Which is kind of honestly, between you and I and the fans, it’s kind of s****y.
It’s like you can’t afford to give me a day player contract for using my voice and a new game? I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel great.
THE NATURAL ARISTOCRAT: It’s kind of like using a soundboard it sounds like.
MICHELLE RUFF: Yeah, it just doesn’t feel good.
