Are we talking having the characters they play fight each other? 'Cause with Dimaggio, we can add the Scotsman from Samurai Jack and Hak Foo from Jackie Chan Adventures.

I have to go with Mr. West and Mr. Dimaggio. I was undecided at first, but Tiny Toons was one of my FAVORITE cartoons of ALL TIME. I new I had seen WEst's voice work somewhere other than futurama, I just couldn't remember where.

I can't believe some people are saying that Dimaggio is dragging Billy West down!  Dimaggio is a capable and stellar character actor, who brings his parts to life like I can't believe sometimes.  Just watch bender sing one of those odes to himself every once in a while, and you see some truly gifted performing.

Billy and John, hands down. Mad props to Hank and Dan, though. They're awesome; Comic Book guy is an actual person, I've met him sooo many times in my life.

Nevertheless, Hank Azaria will get his fourth emmy this year...

Billy took over Ren after John K was fired.  He's not doing either on the new shows which is sad, but given how bad they are, probably goodfor him.  The new Stimpy isn't nearly as good.

The poll isn't really fair in that you have a lead and a characer voice versus two leads.  How 'bout Maurice Lamarche and Frank Welker or Phil Lamar or Dave Herman versus Azaria and Shearer...., now that is a battle of brilliantcharacter actors.  And a very hard choice.

In Dimagio's defense, He does the character that probably gets the most lines per show, so you don't notice his other stuff as much.  On the other hand, since Billy does a lead, a main second character, and the main comic relief, you can't help but notice how good he is (although, I have to admit, Fry and Stimpy basically sound like him).

What really keeps both the Simpsons and Futurama good are the quality of their voice talent.  It must help the writers to know you can come up with anything and someone can give it voice.  It must also help the animators to have such voices to give them inspiration.
