Frank Welker.

Seriously, how is this even a question?  Take Frank off the poll and it might actually be an interesting question.

Well he's currently being crushed by Billy West soooo...ya. Don't get me wrong, I realize Frank has more credentials than anyone, but as far as Futurama goes, there are more important voice actors, and one could argue that a couple of them are as talented as Frank.

One could argue lots of things.  One could still be wrong.

I agree that he's not the most important voice actor on Futurama – he doesn't voice any of the main characters – but if you're asking about who has the biggest range, or the most voice acting talent in general, then I just don't see how you can seriously consider anyone else to even be in the same league.

Frank Welker blows me away. Just, wow. He is definitely in a league of his own. Since he's not really predominant on Futurama, though, I had to go with West.

I think they're all impressive.
Billy is impressive for his massive variety.
I shouldn't even need to explain why Frank is impressive. Simply amazing.
Maurice is impressive for the same reasons Billy is (Although, I think it's much easier to identify his voice than Billy's is)
Katy's voice is very good as well. "Leela's Homeworld" is a perfect example. The story was very predictable, but the delivery of Leela's lines at the end of the episode made it one of the most memorable moments in the series.

Idk, that's just my opinion. I'd put West and Welker in a league of their own, they're both amazing. Imo.

I'm going with the cliché answer Billy West because he does so many and they're all so great. I've always especially loved Professor Farnsworth's voice, but Fry, Dr Zoidberg and others are all great too. Not to take credit away from the others though, they all do an excellent job and it wouldn't be the same without them!...

I went with Billy West. Dave Herman and Maurice LaMarche are great, but I think a lot of Herman's characters sound similar, and LaMarche himself has copped to the fact that the Horrible Gelatinous Blob, Morbo, and Lrrr all pretty much sound the same. I think Billy West has the widest range.

But yeah, Frank Welker is absolutely brilliant, and quite versatile. But in terms of Futurama, his talents aren't used nearly as much as West's or Herman's or LaMarche's.

The crazy thing is, Tress (who has 0 votes) would be the most talented voice actor on any cartoon on Fox's Sunday nights. Except Seth perhaps. Someone give her a vote! tongue

EDIT: Hoorayyyyy! I'm a delivery boy!

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.
