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.

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.

If we are talking sheer talent Mal Blanc deserves the #1 spot by a LONG shot! He wasn't just the god of voice acting, he was an incredible actor period! To bad his son Noel Blanc isn't higher on this list, very talented in his own right.

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!

2 Tom Kenny Thomas James Kenny is an American actor and comedian known for his long-running role as the title character in the SpongeBob SquarePants TV series and films. Kenny has voiced many other characters including Heffer Wolfe in Rocko's Modern Life, the Ice King in Adventure Time, the Mayor in The Powerpuff ...read more.

" I'm known for being *Spongebob voice* Spongebob from Spongebob Squarepants! *Ice King voice* The Ice King from Adventure time! *Rocko voice* Rokko from Rocko's Modern Life! *Narrator voice* The Narrator from the Power Puff Girls. *Mayor voice* The MAYOR from the Power Puff Girls! Uhh... and just like... a couple hundred other characters.

Although I dislike Spongebob (yes, I do), he makes a great Ice King in Adventure Time!

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!

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

Mel Blanc was definitely the BEST...followed closely by Billy West and Dan Castellenata.

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!

So this overrated woman is above June Foray, Jess Harnell, Rob Paulsen, Tom Kenny, Frank Welker, Kevin Michael Richardson, Keith Ferguson, Jim Cummings, John DiMaggio, Grey Delisle, Dee Bradley Baker, Harry Shearer, Dan Castalanetta, Hank Azaria, Mark Hamill-OH WHY SHOULD I BOTHER

4 Dan 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
HE DESERVES #1

The voice of Homer J. Simpson

Barney Gumble is more of a legend than Twilight Sparkle ever will be BURP!

5 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.

He voices the Joker, Skips, Stickybeard, skekTek and Larry 3000, and given amazing performances. His range and talent is incredible.

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

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.

6 John DiMaggio John William DiMaggio is an American actor, voice actor and comedian, known for his gruff voice, and for his work as Bender from the television show Futurama, Jake the Dog on Adventure Time, and Marcus Fenix in the hit Xbox video game Gears of War.

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 Booking.com commercials.

Bender, Jake the Dog, countless video games.

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

The Joker Batman Under The Red Hood

7 Frank Welker Franklin Wendell Welker is an American voice actor best known for his role as Fred Jones from the Scooby-Doo franchise since its inception in 1969 and as the voice of Scooby-Doo since 2002.

Frank walker is the best voice actor ever he has been in the most voice acting roles then anybody he is one of the greatest ever

Thank You Frank for making my childhood a great one

Best voice actor for the past 30 years. Both animal and human.

Should be number one he did voices in countless movies and cartoons.

Why is that Seth dude any better than this guy? The voice of Lincoln Loud is apparently better than Jim Cummings? I should just leave this list alone because you voters know nothing about voice acting, Tara Strong above him is an even bigger joke.

8 Billy West William Richard Werstine, known professionally as Billy West, is an American voice actor, singer, comedian, musician, songwriter and former radio personality who is known for his voice-over work in a number of television series, films, video games and commercials.

He definitely is better than Tara Strong.

Billy is number one

This guy should be nuber one, not these onetimers.

"Oh, joy! "
"Shut up and take my money! "
"Good news everyone! "

9 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

Listen to his performance of Stewie Griffin pretending to be Brian in season 5 episode 5 when Stewie is talking to Jillian on the phone. Fantastic job done by Seth there.

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

10 James Earl Jones James Earl Jones is an American actor who in a career spanning more than 60 years has become known as "one of America's most distinguished and versatile" actors and "one of the greatest actors in American history." Since his Broadway debut in 1957, Jones has won many awards, including a Tony Award and ...read more.

Best voice ever. Didn't take me 2 seconds to realize he was playing Mufasa in the Lion King. It really made me sad when he died just because we would hear his epic low voice. And well, of course he voices the best villain in cinema, the one and only Darth Vader. He's just epic.

his voice made darth vader darth vader.

Wow! His voice is the most distinct I've ever heard!

Once a stutterer like me, now famous for Darth Vader.

I stutter since I was 8 years old and I still stutter but it's great and I'm proud of his achievement and career especially when he's known for his dubbed voice of Darth Vader.

The Contenders

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

Azulas defeat scene was so powerful, some of the greatest voice acting I've ever heard

I grew up watching the shows she voiced major characters in: Avatar the Last Airbender, Fairly Oddparents, and the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy just to name a few.
Her voice was basically my childhood and I do believe people sell her short. Heck, some of the shows I saw on her wiki, I realized after the fact "Oh yeah! That was her! " She is able to breathe life into a character like few can.

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.

12 Trey Parker Randolph Severn "Trey" Parker III is an American animator, director, producer, screenwriter, actor, and composer.

I mean come on, he's Cartman!

He's Cartman, Stan, Randy, Clyde, Mr. Garrison, Timmy, Jimmy, Mr. Mackey, Phillip, Ned, Officer Barbrady, Sgt. Yates, and Mr. Hankey.

Almost forget about Tuong Lu Kim, Scott Tenorman, Satan, and Gary and Kim Jong Il from Team America: World Police.

13 Robin Williams Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco's comedy renaissance. He died in 2014.

Genie in Aladdin
Batty in Ferngully

If I would have met him, I'd bet that I would never have a friend like him!

All you guys sad he's dead. He ain't dead. He's just waiting for us to roll a 5 or 8.

He shouldn't be at 12 just for voicing Genie

14 Hank Azaria Henry Albert Azaria is an American actor, voice actor, comedian and producer, known for his voice characterizations as a variety of characters in the animated sitcom The Simpsons, which include Moe Szyslak, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, Carl Carlson and others.

This guys could narrate an ant's life, and make me interested. Should be #1.

are yo serious I could listen to this man while I'm sleeping his voice is magical

He is the best. His voice alone could win him an oscar.

Pure Voice. He needs no character or animation to keep you attention. Just a subject and narration.

16 Tress MacNeille Tress MacNeille is an American voice actress. She has voiced characters for various animated television series such as The Simpsons, Futurama, Tiny Toon Adventures, Rugrats, Animaniacs, and Disney's House of Mouse.

There are so many great things I can say about Tress MacNeille that I just can't stop saying! She was in so many shows in my childhood and all of her roles are favorite.

Daisy Duck, Dot Warner, Babs Bunny, Hello Nurse, Marita Hippo, Colleen, Rhubella Rat, Agnes Skinner, Mom, Pepper, Tiny Tim, Charolette, Chip, Dale, Gadget, Penelope Pussycat, and so many more that I just can't list them all! Thank you Tress for being a part of my childhood. You so should be up in the Top 10s!

Dot! :) She was also Mindy's Mom on Animaniacs and Hello Nurse on Animaniacs

She is the one who yells Seymour when playing Agnes Skinner, and I am grateful for that

She voiced Dot Warner, Babs Bunny, Hello Nurse, Gadget And Chip from Rescue Rangers, and a lot of simpsons and futrama charcters. Why wasn't she on the list before this?

17 Kevin Michael Richardson Kevin Michael Richardson is an American actor and voice actor who has portrayed a multitude of characters in various animated series and video games. He is known for his extremely deep voice and has been playing a wide variety of characters since the early 1990s, often villains. For voicing Joker in ...read more.

Jim Cummings is not even in the top ten? Have you guys seen his resume? He has voiced Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Darkwing Duck, Scar from The Lion King, Peg Leg Pete, Negaduck, Ray the firefly, Steele from Balto, and many, many more. He's got a very wide range of voices and deserves to be in the top twenty because of that. Heck, he deserves to be in the top ten. Much more so than voice actors who use the same voice over and over again, like James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman (both of which are great actors might I add).

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

Winnie the Pooh AND Tigger too

Jim ABSOLUTELY should be in the top 10. His range is amazing and has been a STAPLE of cartoons for the past 30 years

19 Rodger Bumpass

His range and comic timing is incredible.

Squidward!

20 Rick Jones

He's Maurizio and Bubonic from 'Wunschpunsch', Zephir from 'Babar', Rotten Ralph, Speedy Cerviche from 'Samurai Pizza Cats' and Gwizdo and Hector from 'Dragon Hunters'. Jones has unbelievable range and talent.

21 Mike Judge Michael 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.

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.")

22 Richard Steven Horvitz

He also did the voice of Alpha 5 from Power Rangers

He throws himself into his roles with a ton of honesty.

Edd (double d) in ed, edd, n eddy.

He's voiced Double D (Edd), Baby Daffy, Baby Bugs Bunny, Baby Tweety, Krypto the Superdog, Martin Mystery, Russell Ferguson, Archie (COTT), and small parts in Sausage Party. This man is so talented, and also, he's kinda sexy.

25 Harry Shearer

Smithers, Dr. Hibbert and Kent Brockman among others.

I love hearing him on The Simpsons! He's so awesome!

He was also great on Saturday Night Live, This Is Spinal Tap, and Wayne's World 2.

26th - A joke. By far the greatest. The nuance, understanding, character and intelligence he brings to every role is outstanding.

Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders!
