I noticed that because John DiMaggio pointed it out on the commentary. Also, on A Fishful Of Dollars, when Mom's son Larry (voiced by Dave Herman) says "More like 4.3 billion! Hahahahahaha-- ow!", I swear he's being voiced by Billy West in that scene. Could be wrong though.

No, that is Billy in the dialogue, although it seems to be Dave Herman who does the "ow!" - and where he says "that's a good boy" as Fry swallows the pill; that's Billy again.

I thought so!   wink

But back to Tress, I just find it odd how few multi-voicing female actors you get on Futurama when you consider there are around six regular male voiceovers, all of which play multiple roles.

I see what you mean.
But I think in general, (prepare yourselves for a sweeping statement) there are a lot more recurring male parts in Futurama as a whole.  It's pretty hard to differentiate between voices too, I'd say there's only a certain amount of that particular discipline that can be "learned."  Most of it is probably a case of either you can do it, or you can't.

John's got such a cushy job 'coz he gets to play clones of his characters who sound exactly the same! Bender and Flexo, Jack Johnson and John Jackson...  laff

Random noticing-ness: Check the credits for the Animatrix. Kath Soucie, Tress McNeille, Tom Kenny, Phil LaMarr, and (get this) John DiMaggio all show up.

Also, I saw Tom Kenny as "Santiago" in Comedy Central's movie "Windy City Heat." Cool, no?

The voice of Amy (i think it is Tress McNille) is great and of course Billy West.

Amy's voiced by Lauren Tom. I'm going to pick her, especially for the frequent Martian bits and "fl'uh!" (and all derivatory exclamations :P)

But I could have gone with Tress McNeill (pretty sure there is an 'e' in there) because of her versatility, or Billy West for the same reason.

EDIT: sorry, the Morbo question had been answered before  *blush*

I notice that everybody overwhelmingly voted Billy West as best voice actor, and I'd have to kinda agree. He is the most talented and versatile and I love Zoidberg and Zapp.

But I still say that John Dimaggio deserves my vote because of his always hilarious ad libs. Nobody does them better. And that takes talent.

I had to vote for Katey, here, because of her beautiful singing voice.  Personally, I'd like for her to try her hand at singing, in addition to acting.

For the official welcome:

Welcome to PEEL, 25_star_general. Enjoy your stay at Nerd-World.

(And THAT'S how you do it)

Also, my favorite is Billy because of all the voices he did. But otherwise, they are all talented. Alot better than me.

I like Billy West the best. Although I love the way John DiMaggio did Bender's voice, I love how Billy can change his voice so much for each character.

Billy won my vote by being Ren and Stimpy and (the original) Doug and Roger, and being on futurama.

Oh and for being the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee and the Red M&M.

Though I would also vote for 'all' if given the option.

I voted other, although on my thread i voted Billy West, i feel i need to vote differently on this one, just for the amount of voices (all different) Dave Herman does. He does a load of good voices.

My number one is Billy and my number two is Frank Welker, both of them have incredible talent, as do the others, but they also have previous cartoon experience, Billy with Ren and Stimpy, and Frank with Scooby Doo and Transformers

I voted for Billy West, but John DiMaggio is great too. Actually its hard to choose since most of the voice actors on the show were some of the best.

Maurice LaMarsh (sp) is very good as he does such a variation of characters the best being Lrrr and Mellvar. Tress McNeille also does many female voices in the show. However if you listen to Billy West on the commentary for Branngian Begin Again duting the cortcase he does such a funny impression of the Slurm Worm that he has to be best.

I've got like two. Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio. Katey is a sweetheart, and I LOVE her songs. I want her CD "Well..." and John Dimaggio is the fuuniest guy with a hilarious voice!
