Since we've gone the negative route to talk about your least favorite voice actors, I think it's time to pull a 180 on the subject. Who's your favorite voice actors?

My favorites from the old school, June foray and Paul Frees. In any Jay Ward cartoon, these 2 voice actors always got the best parts, and the most of them as well. they really stretched their talents and did multiple voices, sometimes all in one scene.

For the current popular voice actors, I really like Jim Cummings, Rob Paulsen, Billy West, Dan Castlanetta and Tom Kenny.

David Lucas, baby! (Spike Speigel)

Ooo, and David Hayter (Solid Snake). The man can VA and write a damn good movie!

Uhm, John DiMaggio as well. (Bender, Wakka)

Oh, and Adam Carl. The BEST Donatello voice IMO.

Lesee.... I'm sure I'll thinka more....eventually.

2. Shredder: Scottie Ray
3. Batman/Terry McGuiness: Will Friedle
4. Genie: Robin Williams
5. Karai: I wish I knew who voices her!!!

Bruce Timm is one of the creators. Batman's voice was done by Kevin Conroy, someone I forgot to mention in my list. He's definately another onna my favorites and has defined Batman more for me than onybody who played him in Live action. Matk Hamill (Hammil?) is also VERY noteworthy. Nobody will ever be a better Joker than him.

Rob Paulsen has to be the king after Animaniacs. The stuff he did there was insane (Yakko's World & Pinky in general). Jim Cummings would be a close second, due to him being some of the best characters of all time. Charles Martinet cuz he Mario, and I can immitate his voice exactly. Don't know his name, but that dude who does Knuckles/Yami/Baxter Stockman/Raph. He's probobly 4Kids best voice actor. There's a zillion others but I can't think of all the names aat the moment. :roll:

I have allot of Favorites.

Charlie Adlar: Great voice for Snively(SatAM) and he's perfect in Cow & Chicken.

Jim Cummings: Legendary Voice Actor, played several Disney Charaters, A Voice Over for DisneyLand Commercials, TNT, and WB. He's perfect for Pete the large Cat, Pooh Bear, Robotnik(SatAM), Bonkers, Taz, and whole much more.

Kath Soucie: Great Actress for playing either a little kid or someone's mom. She was great for Sally/Nicole(SatAM), Hey Arnold, a few Disney charaters, and some other ones.

Tom Kenny: Good voice for SpongeBob.

Tim Curry: His English accent is what makes him great.

Rob Paulsen: His part for: Dr. Scratchensniff, and Yakoo were good. He's perfect for Antoine(SatAM) and PJ from Goof Troop.

Veronica Taylor: Wonderful voice actress, perfect for the role of April O'Neil.

Frank Frankson: Good voice for Raphel and Sam Speed.

Mike Pollock: His German like voice is good for any role of a villian or a comedy relief.

Eric Stuart: His Heroic/ Snagglepuff is what I like about that guy. Great voice for James(Pokemon) and Auddition voice for TMNT.

Ted Lewis: He's great for playing Escargoon(Kirby) and other Animes.

I admire Voice Actors allot. Their talents are what make cartoons great.
I have some other favorite actors as well.

Hey, I forgot that Jim Cummings was Dr. Ivo Robotnik! That bumps him up on the list, because it's that voice that made the whole character. One of Animation's best bad guys. He also did voice over's for Spike TV (aka Suck TV), Star Trek Deep Space Nine (I think), and Tigger.

Frank Frankson does not do Baxter, Yami Yugi or Knuckles. Dan Green does Yugi and Knux, Baxter is done by Scott Williams.

I've met and hung out with Scott McNeil several times. He's one of the coolest guys in the world.

David Kaye is also amazing. He IS Megatron. At TransformersCon this year I actually got to perform along with him with several other fans for a fun script reading. It was so much fun. I played Soundwave!

I actually met Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche at an atougraph signing at a WB studio store back in 1996. I was too star struck to talk to theim... I wanted to ask Rob about Raph.

I can't believe I left off Maurice and Charlie Adler.... D'oh....
