Top Ten Voice Actors


The Top TenXW

1Mel Blanc

Are you serious? He's Not here? He voiced Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Woody Woodpecker, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin The Martian, Elmer Fudd, Coyote, Barney Rubble, Dino (Flinstones) Tweety Bird, Henery Hawk, Captain Caveman, Taz (Looney Tunes), Speedy Gonzalez and Many Many More! He's the greatest Voice Actor of All Time and you're telling me you people think that Patrick Warburton, an actor who uses the same voice like 10 times for 10 different characters is better than him? I don't think so. - JasperB

HE started my love of VAing. I think he is a legend for his flexibility. Even if he voiced various characters in the same ep of Loney Tunes, and you can notice, it didn't matter. You were entertained, and that was important. That is what made many cartoons.

Why isn't this man number one? Seth Macfarlane above Blanc!?!? It really irks me that MacFarlane is extremely overrated. Yeah he voiced quite a few family guy characters and a couple American Dad characters. SO WHAT! That does not even compare to the many voices of Mel Blanc!

There are many great voice actors here, but I'm really annoyed that Holly Hunter isn't on this list (she voiced Mrs. Incredible in the Incredibles). She was amazing and she sells every scene her character is in. She is also very devoted (she learned what all the airplane codes she said in the airplane scene meant). She should be on this list.

3Tom Kenny

Tom Kenny is Patchy the Pirate, Sponge bob Square Pants, and MORE stuff! I have no idea why HE is number 16! You People are just so bitchy! And some dumb asses to! Please go get your Brain CHECKED if you DON'T think he deserves to be #1

Tom Kenny Grey DeLisle & John DiMaggio are by far the best voice actors ever & need to be at the top of this list. The people st the top of list only did 1 or 2 voice over's these people are legends. GO TOM!

And The French Narrator on SpongeBob that says 2 hours later and the narrator on the powerpuff girls and the mayor of the powerpuff girls

He voices Spongebob! That's a really hard voice to nail, guys.

4Tara StrongTara Strong is a Canadian–American actress who has done work in numerous films and television series, both live-action and animated.

Don't let the interviews fool you! In real life, she's a pig-headed, uptight, effortless snob who thinks she's better than 90% of the world. I found out in a Deviantart comment that when someone Tara, she paid no attention to him/her, and treated him/her like crap.

She is so overrated and untalented there are so many better voice actors out there. At least Mel Blanc is higher than her.

She is so talented and popular, not to mention her personality is kind and generous! She deserves to be this high up, if not higher! My personal favourite of her voices is twilight sparkle from my little pony friendship is magic! Keep going Tara!

I agree shes amazing

5Seth Mcfarlane

Sexy, gorgeous voice, amazing singer, voiced Brian, Peter, and Stewie Griffin. Quagmire, Tom Tucker, Roger the Alien, Stan Smith, and tim the Bear. Not to mention random appearances on Robot Chicken - MoldySock

Stop being mean to this guy! He may not be the best, but at least he puts effort into his voices and he seems like a nice person! This seems more like someone who overhated than someone who is overrated.

He's the best, good actor, good characters, good singing, good dancing and good looking what's not to love he looks so young for his age

He is incredibly underrated

7Dan Castellaneta

What?! He does dozens of voices on the Simpsons including Homer, Krusty, and Grandpa. He also does the Robot Devil on Futurama. How is he possibly at number 24? How is he not number one?

LOOK HIM UP he does the voice of
-Homer Simpson -Grandpa Simpson -Barney Gumble -Krusty the Clown
-Groundskeeper Willie -Hans Moleman -Sideshow Mel -Itchy -Kodos
-The Pimple faced teen -Gill Gunderson just from the simpsons he also toulk rolls in Darkwing Duck, Earthworm Jim, Hey Arnold, Futurama and LOTS more

Seth Macfarlame can only do about 4 different voices - Peter, Stewie, Quagmire and then every other generic voice in family guy that all sound the same whereas Dan can do Homer Simpson, Grandpa Simpson, Barney Gumble, Krusty the Clown, Groundskeeper Willie, Hans Moleman Mayor Quimby and The Pimple faced teen now that's voice talent. And Seth Macfarlame is an unlikable jerk in real life

8Mark HamillMark Richard Hamill is an American actor and voice actor. He is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy – Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: the Animated Series.

This guy may not have been much of a voice actor, but he did have a great voice in general - CommentandList

He's the best Joker ever! I didn't even know it was him!

Ok, after this man played luke skywalker (not voice acting) he went on to play THE most recognizable, THE most famous and, might I say, THE best super villains of all time. He not only played the joker, he BECAME the joker. On the spur of the moment he can slip into character. And when he slips into character he doesn't bring him to life, no no, he TRANSFORMS into the joker. Has anyone seen this man as he works, slap makeup on that poor fellow and put HIM in the next reboot of batman- as the joker of course.

Darth bane for the win

12Clarence Nash

He actually created Donald Ducks voice! While making other sounds on the farm. Walt Disney created Donald after hearing Nash do the voice on the radio, then had him do the voice in a private audition. After that, he made many animal vocals for movies and cartoons in more than just Donald Duck. He did the original meows for Tom (from Tom and Jerry), the low raspy voice for the rough house statue guy in "Pinocchio," a croaky voice for a frog in "Bambi," barking sounds for dogs in "101 Dalmations," and more meows, along with horse neighs, crows, and most of all, bird tweets, most noticably in "Cinderella" and a lot of other Disney shorts and movies. His last unique animal role (other than Donald) was a bear in "The Fox and the Hound," now you should recognize that sound, he's used it in many many other shorts and I even heard it in a "Family Guy" episode. How I know all of this is from Disney wikia and an episode of the original "Disneyland" television series, "A day in the life of ...more

He was so amazing. 50 years! He played Donald Duck, and Disney animal noises.

He was (in my opinion ) the Mel Blanc of Disney.

I wish there was someone around today that could do animal noises just as good as he did.

13Grey DeLisle

She deserves to be on this list more than anyone. She's practically voiced 100 characters every year. She can voice any character and make is probably offered a character in every good animated show.
She's been Azula, Vicky the babysitter, Catwoman, and thousands of others.

She may not be the best, but she sure does put in more effort than Tara "the Twat" Strong.

My favorite roles of hers are: Mandy, Frankie Foster, Duchess, Lola Loud, Lana Loud, Lily Loud, The Ice Queen, and Kitty Katswell.

He definitely is better than Tara Strong.

Stimpy, Ren (after John K. left the show), Mr. Horse (again, after John K. left), Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, Doug, Roger, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Bashful. What else can I say? This guy rocks!

15John DiMaggio

He's just plain awesome. One of if not the best since 1997. Bender from Futurama, Jake from Adventure Time, Shnitzel from Chowder, dozens of video games. Oh yeah, and he's also the spokesperson for commercials.

Bender, Jake the Dog, countless video games.

16Mike JudgeMichael Craig "Mike" Judge is an American actor, voice actor, animator, writer, producer, director, and musician.

most of the people on this list (except hank azaria, dan castalaneta, tom kenny, charlie adler, e. g daily and a few others) are just actors who did one voice acting role. Mike Judge is the voice behind beavis, butt-head, mr anderson, buzzcut, mcvicker, van driessen, the burger world manager, the maximart clerk, stewarts dad and stacks of one off characters on beavis and butt-head. he's also genius enough to voice hank hill on king of the hill and Gerald goode on the goode family. what a legend. - CrowdedChisel

Not only does he do hank he also does Boomhauer and almost all of the assorted voices on all his shows (small lines like a news anchor, or a cop "these boys arnt drunk they're just stupid! " "huh huh, were wasted dude.")

17Dee Bradley Baker

He makes the best animal sounds ever!

He's Perry the Platapus, Klaus, Kevin the Sea Cucumber, Binky, Old Man Jenkins, Sanjay, and Dopey. What else can I say?

I'm not gonna tell what characters he voice because he would often voice multiple characters per show so let's see how many shows he's been on
Dexter's laboratory, Chalkzone, Totally Spies, Johnny Bravo, Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls, What's New Scooby Doo, Teen Titans, Dora the Explorer, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Fairly Odd Parents, SpongeBob SquarePants, Avatar: The Last Airbender,
Avatar: The Legend Of Korra, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebels, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, American Dad, and Adventure Time. Shall I go on?

He's got a pretty large filmography, and can do some good voices.

Not only is he versatile with fictional characters, he can voice real people as well. - djh101

Just as an example, he voices Winnie-the-Pooh and Razoul from Aladdin, that's a big difference and shows just how versatile he is.

Wasn't he Ray from Princess and the Frog?
