Since Mel Blanc is unfortunately no longer with us, who is your vote for favorite living cartoon voice actor/actress?

A few years ago I might have said “ the guy who did Raphael” but now I'll have to go with Michael Bell (who is 70 or 80 or something) and has an enormous list under his belt. I think he mostly does video games now though.

It's hard to choose really, there are a number which hit the top of my list. It would probably have to be somewhere between Tom Kenny, Charles Adler, Mark Hamill, and Billy West. They all seem to have a fairly good range on their voices and approach the art with more professionalism than other voice actors (particularly those in the anime industry).

Mark Hamill Forever! He has coloured my image of The Joker until the end of time.

I’m a fan of Billy West and John Dimaggio

I'm also doing that other comic "Space Waffles".
We now have a podcast called The Random Pirate Comics Show!

Is there really any competition? Mark Hamill in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker blasts the rest out of the water.

Gotta support the team!

Also, Mark Hamill was great as Wolverine, and Trickster. He was doing voice-overs even before Star Wars.

I don't like Tress, she sounds the same in everything. There's not much range there, she's always going to sound like her. Same for Patrick Warburton. He's always just going to sound like Patrick Warburton.

Someone like Billy West though has a huge range and you can't always tell (unless you listen to lots and lots of his stuff) that it's him doing the voice. (So add him to my earlier list!) Seth MacFarlane could be added to that, though he only does Family guy, there's distinct voices and he can even sing in character.

Fun fact: Billy West was the voice for ZIM in the original pilot.

The guy who voiced Jet on Cowboy Bebop and Barret in FFVII:AC, I forgot his name. Also, Mark Hamill.

Spike is Steve Blum. He also played Jamie on Megas XLR, and the little Yoda guy on W.I.T.C.H.
