    lol, I was only teasing
    I'm just obsessive over that VA, pay no mind.

    I have a lot of favorite cartoon voice actors, Billy West and Mel, among others. However, I was wondering if it is cool to add Muppet performers on this list, because alot of them are really good. Here are two really good examples...

    Jerry Nelson- Sesame Street-The Count, Sherlock Hemlock, Herry Monster among others. The Muppet Show: Floyd Pepper, Robin, Uncle Deadly, Lew Zealand, among others.
    Fraggle Rock: Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gong, The Trash Heap.

    Frank Oz: Sesame Street: Cookie Monster, Bert, Grover and others.
    The Muppet Show: Fozzie Bear, Miss. Piggy, Animal, Sam the Eagle and others.
    Star Wars: Yoda (Not Muppet, but still counts)

    Godda give credit for these guys, if you ask me, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a huge Muppet fan.

    Patrick Stuart has a great voice, I'm not sure if he's done any cartoon voices, but he narrated a documentary about dragons lately. And (this has nothing to do with voice acting but...) he's aged quiet well, if I might saw so...

    Hank Azaria

    And for some reason I really like James Earl Jones' voice as well as tommy Lee Jones. Well Jones was Darth Vader and the other Jones was Red Dog.

    I, on the other hand, thought he was quite sappy as Leo. But Leo, in my opinion, is not a very three-dimension character, so that's understandable. In the case of Rocksteady, on the other hand, Cam brills.

    Well, I for one am glad to see that at least a few posters have mentioned Peter Cullen on this thread. He's certainly right up there on my list. And so far, most of the voice actors mentioned here (your "hero" included, Taki) fall into my faves list, too (with only at least one exception). But I should throw in my 2 cents here and add a host of other names that deserve equal mention:

    Neil Ross (an old partner of Cullen, and an excellent voice actor, imo)
    Charlie Schlatter (Montana Max on "Tiny Toon Adventures")
    Dana Hill (Charles on "Duckman"; sad that she died so young)
    John Kassir (The Cryptkeeper on "Tales From The Crypt")
    Tony Jay (who was given a superb eulogy/tribute in the articles section)
    Leonard (Lennie) Weinrib (the voice of H.R. Pufnstuf, believe it or not)
    Walker Edminston (Sigmund the Seamonster and others)
    Pat Fraley (a longtime veteran who's had many roles, and a good friend to Susan Blu, I hear)
    Russi Taylor (Huey, Lewie, and Dewey on "Ducktales"; Widget the World Watcher)
    Katie Leigh (a longtime veteran; currently plays Jakers)
    Robert Ridgely (Thundarr The Barbarian)
    Arnold Stang (Herman the Mouse, Top Cat)
    Sid Raymond (Baby Huey, Katnip (my fave); he died earlier this year)
    Jackson Bess (Bluto, Narrator on "G.I. Joe"; also died early this year)
    Max Segar (Popeye, and the first to play Felix The Cat on TV)
    Kathi Gori (played Inch High Private Eye's neice, was also a storywriter at H-B)
    Janet Waldo (Judy Jetson; Penelope Pitstop; Josie on "Josie & The Pussycats"; also played the teen babysitter that appears in two Cinemascope Tom & Jerry cartoons)
    Gary Owens (the original Space Ghost, Blue Falcon)
    Howard Morris (famous from "The Andy Griffith Show" and many of Mel Brooks'
    movies, apart from his V/O work on many SatAM cartoons, including the voices of Mr. Peebles on "Magilla Gorilla", Wade on the "U.S. Acres" segments of "Garfield and Friends", and his last V/O role as Earl on "Cow and Chicken". He was hilarious to listen to.)
    John Stephenson (Mr. Slate on "The Flintstones", Wheeljack on the G1 Transformers series)
    Alan Reed and Jean Van Der Pyl (a/k/a Fred & Wilma Flintstone)
    Henry Corden (who replaced Reed as Fred in '77; also the fish friend of Charlie Tuna)
    Bea Benederet (a Looney Tunes veteran V/O before June Foray came to WB; the first to play Betty Rubble)
    ...and of course we can't forget Don Messick and Daws Butler (you'd have to be a complete hermit to NOT know who they are!)

    I suppose I should also give special mention to Stan Freberg, John Byner (Ant & Aardvark), Gilbert Gottfried, Desirée Goyette, Brad Garrett, John O'Hurley (Great guy! And a great dancer, to boot!), Wayne Knight, and last, but not necessarily least, the NFL Channel's "Lovable Loser" Nick Bakay (Norbert, Salem Saberhagen).

    D'OH!!! I can't believe no one has mentioned Jess Harnell!

    I like John Ratzenberger's voicework in all those Pixar movies.

    As well as most of the above mentioned.

    Bob Holt is w/o a doubt, the most under appreciated voice over artist ever.

    Hmm, let's see...

    Mel Blanc, of course!! He's like the king of voice actors. May he rest in peace. Oh, and yes, he did voice Elmer Fudd. You can hear it through other characters slightly.

    i have to agree with this!!!
