Dan Castellaneta. His Robot Devil voice is just plain brilliant. Also, on an unrelated note, he's Homer! What the hell beats that?

Billy West as Fry, and as everyone else he voices, big parts or small.

I never liked Homer's voice anyway, I was shocked that the Robot Devil's amazing voice was done by the same guy that voiced Homer (oh how he bothers me).

 i like john dimaggio the best. especially in the first couple episodes where his voice is less devoloped. also dan castalenta is awesome, i cant stand his homer voice but the robot devels wierd accent or whatever is the way he stresses strange syllables is the best.

I'm a bit amazed about the lack of love for Maurice Lamarche. This guy play such a wide range of voices, it's just unbelieveable.

Just to name a few: Kif, Morbo, Lrrr, the HyperChicken, Calculon, Clamps, the AOI narrator, Walt, Malachi, and, what I consider one of his best achievements, iHawk (so close to Alan Alda's "Hawkeye" Pierce it was just uncanny).

And for the region 1'ers: he'll be on the season 3 DVD, you have something to look forward to.

I always laugh at how Maurice LaMarche goes on in the DVD commentaries about how Morbo, Lrrr and HGB are totally different, as I probably wouldn't have noticed any similarities if he hadn't kept going on about it. Plus, he forgot to mention Destructor.  tongue

I just finished the new Voice Actors section at CGEF: http://www.gotfuturama.com/Information/FuturamaStaff/VoiceActors/

Maybe have a look  wink

Personally, I can't decide really, John and Billy are both great, but even the "additional voices" by Herman and co are quite remarkable.

Great list, mArc. One error thoug. According to the audio commentaries That Guy was voiced by Dave Herman, not Tom Kenny.

Tom Kenny voiced Abner Doubledeal (the URFL/NNY Mets owner) and Adlai.

Billy West gets extra points for doing a whole commentary as Zoidberg - But Frank Welker deserves some sort of special hat for being in Scooby Doo.

It's not that funny though. The "A Pharoah To Remember" commentary is funnier.

Because the season 3 DVD isn't released in Region 1 yet. I thought some people would prefer not knowing it, and since the name of the thread doesn't warn that season 3 DVD extras might be discussed, I decided it was better to be safe than sorry.

I like how Frank Welker has done so many voice-overs over the years but in the commentaries, John DiMaggio always refers to him as "The original voice of Freddy on Scooby Doo."

To those who missed Saturday's episode of "Duck Dodgers", John DiMaggio voiced Kilowog, the freaky pink hippo Green Lantern.

The IMDb also lists that Kenny voiced Joey Mousepad, but wasn't that DiMaggio?  Kenny wasn't credited in either of the episodes in which the character appeared, anyway.

I believe that DiMaggio claims to be the voice of Joey in the commentary, even putting forth his inspiration for the voice (his father, if I recall correctly). So, yes, I think it is safe to assume that DiMaggio did the voice. Unless, of course, I REALLY can't tell who says what on the DVD commentaries.

Yep, John did Joey Mousepad too, and a bunch of other voices in "Bender Gets Made". Pretty fun to listen to him boast about the Annie he won for outstanding voiceover for the episode.  big grin

Too late now, but it's sad that Lauren Tom hasn't got a single vote. I love Amy's voice. Guess it doesn't compare to the huge variety of West and DiMaggio, though.

The female voice talent on the show doesn't seem as expansive as the male voice talent though. Tress MacNille does a lot of female and children voices but Lauren Tom only does a few voices besides Amy (usually little girls like Pramala in ATO2S) and Katey Segal of course only does Leela. And people like Kath Soucie and Nicole St. John are only drafted in fairly infrequently.

 It's quite different from The Simpsons which has like three main male voice actors and several females.

If you're talking about the number of females then I see what you mean, but if you're talking about personal range then Tress wins.  I love her on the commentaries in Season 3!

Tress does have a great range, although I can nearly always tell when it's one of her voices. The only times I have trouble telling is when they bring in another voice actor to do a female voice that sounds like it could've been done by Tress, such as Norah Dunn as Morgan Proctor.

I know what you mean - she's got that quality to her voice that seems to come across all of her work.  I was watching Hey Arnold the other day (which I'd never seen before) with his grandma in, and i sat up and went "Hang on, that's Tress!"  Got me some very strange looks from my roommates! 
In that episode (and I apologize if this has already been done to death  smile) they leave the temp line "Spa 5? Is it good?" which is Tress MacNeille.  You can hear that it's not Dawnn Lewis straightaway.
