Kaplan grew up in San Jose, California. He got his start as a comedian doing impressions of presidents such as Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. He also impersonated a little known journalist at the time, Dan Rather. He then started work on video games, including many Star Wars titles. From there he went on to do such shows as Power Rangers, Digimon: Digital Monsters, and most recently, Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
One of his most famous voices is Hawkmon from Digimon. His favorite role was the “utility guy” on a show called The Mouse and the Monster, which aired on UPN in 1996–1997. He played stomachs, ghosts, and Sappy the Clown, among dozens of other characters on that show. Kaplan was also once a contestant on the popular comedy game show, Street Smarts. On that appearance he showed off some of his other impressions, including one of Gilbert Gottfried.
