Biographical information

Personal life

Alazraqui was born to Argentine parents in Yonkers, New York, and moved to Concord, California, at an early age. He later relocated to Sacramento to attend California State Sacramento where he began competing in open mic contests. After winning in his fourth year of competing at the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, he took his prize money and moved to Los Angeles.

Career

Alazraqui has performed several voices for Nickelodeon cartoons, including Rocko on Rocko's Modern Life, Denzel Q. Crocker and Juandissimo Magnifico on The Fairly OddParents, Winslow on CatDog, and additional voices on Angry Beavers and KaBlam!. Alazraqui also voiced several additional characters for the Cartoon Network show Cow and Chicken during its run in the mid-late 1990s. He also voiced the titular character of the first game in the Spyro the Dragon series, the Taco Bell chihuahua in commercials, Rikochet in the first two seasons of Mucha Lucha!, and Jonathan Weed, the head of the Happy Go Lucky Toy Factory on Family Guy, until the character's death. It is mentioned in the DVD commentary track that Alazraqui was reluctant to leave the Family Guy series. In particular, Seth McFarlane suggests that the death of Mr. Weed took the actor by surprise.

In 2005, he added the voices for two Cartoon Network series: The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, wherein he played Monroe, a guardian dog with a Scottish accent, and Lazlo and Clam in Camp Lazlo. In 2006, he added Salty Mike from Squirrel Boy and Walden in Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! to his credits. He played Wisk in Glen Hill's 2000 film version of L. Frank Baum's The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus and also provided the voice of Nestor in Happy Feet.

Alazraqui also does work for the Disney Channel on the Playhouse Disney show Handy Manny, providing the voices for Felipe, the bilingual Phillips-head screwdriver, and Abuelito, Manny's grandfather. He was also the original "voice guy" on the Stephanie Miller Show. His replacement was voice actor Jim Ward, who had previously substituted for him. In January 2008, he returned to fill in for Jim Ward briefly while the latter recovered from surgery.
