The 11 Question Interview Presents Robbie Rist

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of The 11 Question Interview, wherein I pose eleven esoteric questions to various equally esoteric personalities. Here we go...

So, today's 11 Question Interviewee, is the actor/musician Robbie Rist. After spending his early, early years in commercials, Robbie first came to prominence at the age of eight, as Cousin Oliver, during the final season of The Brady Bunch. Actually Rist was only in the final six episodes of the iconic series, but even today, forty+ years later, people know damn well who Cousin Oliver is. But his precocious Brady character is not all that Robbie Rist has done in his decades long career. Rist has also done extensive voice work in such TV shows as Naruto and Doc McStuffins, as well as voicing Michelangelo in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films. The actor also recently made a return to the TMNT world, by voicing Mondo Gecko in the newest film. Rist is also a musician and producer, and recently had a role in the cult film, Sharknado. Oh, and let us not forget his role in the 1976 Sherwood Schwartz one season wonder, Big John, Little John. The twelve year old Rist played the latter. But enough of all the introductory crap. Let's get to why we are all gathered here today. The Robbie Rist 11 Question Interview. And awaaaaay we go...

  • Either a penguin or a honey badger. Both for obvious reasons.

What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt?
  • International Playboy/Jewel Thief. 

 What would you expect and/or hope to see written on your gravestone?
  • Doesn't THIS Just Fucking Figure....?.

If you could choose anyone from history, real or fictional, to be your imaginary friend, who would you choose?
  • Kahlil Gibrahn.

After the Zombie Apocalypse happens, what attributes would make you a valuable member to a survival group?
  • Bait. I would make great bait.
And now I'd like to toss out a big ole thank you to Robbie Rist for stopping by and taking part in The 11 Question Interview. I'll be back sometime soonish, with a brand new, I mean interviewee for the next installment of The 11 Question Interview. That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.
