Does anyone notice that Fry sounds like a 14 year old in Space Pilot 3000????? And Bender does a tiny winy bit. Billy West and John DiMaggio must have still been trying to figure out the best tone for them both.  laff

Yeah that ususally is how it is in the first few episodes of any animated shows.

Yeah, it always takes a few episodes for voice actors to find the right pitch for their characters.

However, in "Space Pilot 3000" it seemed like, there were only a few lines here and there, where Fry sounded dractically different than he does in other episodes of season one.  So anyway, I still think Billy West did a really great job with Fry's voice in the first episode.  smile

I think Bender and the Professor changed a lot too. I mean, in "Space Pilot 3000", Bender's voice sounds a little bit rougher especially when he's saying something like "I could bend it to any degree, 21, 22, 23..."
Anybody else notice that? But anyway, things like this happen in animated series. Billy said on one of the commentaries "We took some creative liberties with the voices."

Mittens: What are you doing?
Bolt: Stay back! If I stare at the lock really hard, it'll burst into flames and melt.
Mittens: Now I'm concerned on a number of levels.

Definately, I agree. And the Professor had a much frailer voice, too. Now you see him yelling and stuff, such a difference.

I've always had an interest in the voice acting of animated shows.

And of course, with Futurama, I really enjoy the voice acting.  Listening to the voices of the characters is just awesome.  And I think the characters' portrayal by the voice cast is excellent as well.   smile

To be honest... the voice acting, as with most elements in Futurama, already felt refined with the first episode.  By that, I mean the first episode doesn't seem all that rough in comparison to other animated shows.  Although there are slight noticeable differences, everything seems relatively the same between the first episode and the seventy-second one.

Yeah and when he and Fry are in line at the suicide booth, he sounds strange when he says "Shinier than yours, meatbag!". I almost forgot about the Professor's voice being different.  hmpf

Yeah, I always thought that the voice acting---not just the voices, but the actual acting---in Futurama was astounding right from the very start of the show. And the fact that some of the best-acted episodes were emotional ones...I always got the impression that it's much harder to voice a character emotionally than humorously.

Listen to the commentary. The voice actors criticize their own work a lot of the time and Billy definitely says something about his early performances.

Compare Homer Simpson's voice in early seasons of The Simpsons.

Yeah, Bender sounded really hoarse during the show's first season in general and "Space Pilot 3000" in particular.

I watched s1e4 not too long ago and Leela sounds too nice. Maybe it has to do with her getting angrier at life as seasons went on ?
