Top Ten Voice Actors


The Top Ten

1 Mel 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!

All time greatest ever, the man of 1000 voices.

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

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!

She's voiced Dill Pickles, Twilight Sparkle, Bat Girl, Timmy Turner, Ben 10, and TONS more voice acting, both background and straight up. She's one of the best voice actors of this decade!

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.

Tara Strong is the best voice actress EVER!

3 Tom Kenny Tom 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 plays one of the most famous cartoon character of all time! *insert SpongeBob laugh here*

5 Seth 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

Has anyone seen any of his shows. He does a ton of unique voices for his characters. He needs to be higher up

6 Mark Hamill Mark Hamill Mark 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.

Skips and The Joker! - PeeledBanana

9 Grey DeLisle Grey DeLisle Erin Grey Van Oosbree, credited as Grey DeLisle and Grey Griffin, is an American voice actress and singer-songwriter.

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.

Frankie From Fosters

I like her a lot better than Tara Strong because she seems a lot more nicer (and she isn't such an attention whore).

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!

14 Clarence 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.

When he was auditioning he was doing the "nervous goat" voice, but Disney must've thought he did a duck voice.

15 John DiMaggio John 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.

Favorite voice actor of all time. My favorite one of his roles was Marcus Fenix.

Don't forget The Scotsman from Samurai Jack. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Walt not only created Micky Mouse he also provide the voice for him.

He should be number 1 or 2 after Mel blanc

18 Rob Paulsen

Considering he voiced Raphael on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Carl Wheezer on Jimmy Neutron, Fowlmouth and Arnold on Tiny Toons, Pinky on Pinky and the Brain, and his most notable role... Yakko from Animaniacs, one has to wonder why Rob Paulsen is so beloved among the voice acting fans and workers. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

Rob is awesome! One of my most favorite voice artists (next to Mel Blanc, Daws Butler, Don Messick, June Foray, Tress MacNeille, Jim Henson, Bill Farmer, Frank Oz, Kath Souice, Dan Castellaneta, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Jim Cummings, Frank Welker, Jess Harnell, Charlie Adler, Dave Goelz, Pamela Adlon, and many more)!

My most favorite roles of his are Yakko Warner, Pinky, Carl Wheezer, Dr. Scratchnsniff, Fowlmouth, Silverbeak, Raphael, and Donatello.

He certainly deserves to be on the top 10 spot!

You just named all the characters in that he voices which is the reason he is beloved among voice acting fans and workers. He is a great voice actor. Not the greatest but certainly not the worst. - mrcoolface

Yakko, Carl Wheezer, and 625. I swear I didn't know they were voiced by the same guy.
