Is it me, or does Zapp briefly speak with Fry's voice in this episode? It's during the space battle, when Zapp loses his cool and shouts 'Stop exploding, you morons!'

???

No.

Although, Billy West does both voices, maybe thats why they could might have possibly sounded similar.

And just to be picky as well...

Its actually cowards not morons.

it could be fry with a cold, but it's much more zapp with a cold than fry with a cold, either way it sounds like zapp is sick, but you can definetly tell it's zapp and not fry

Actually, I just realized I had it already.

(hits head on desk)

You are right though, it sounds nothing like Fry. Sorry CrazyDoc.

Are you people stupid or something? All of a sudden Zapp isn't allowed to raise the pitch of his voice to express frustration?

It sounds vaguely similar to Fry, but im sure thats just b/c Billy West does both voices. Kinda like the Professor sounds like Stimpy the cat at times (another Billy West voice).

It sounds kinda Fry-ish as a stand-alone clip, but with the visuals, it sounds like Zapp for sure. Take that, brain!

The first little bit is fry for sure, but I still recognise it as ZAP

Well in Lovers Lost in Space, when Zap said

Zap: You won't the resst of the champagin?

Leela: It's pronouced chaimpang.

(Can't spell don't complain)

When Zap goes

Zap: Oh god no!

He kinda sounds like Fry. But Billy is the voice for both of them so it makes sense.

I don't understand you people. No, there is no voicing error. Don't you ever raise the pitch of your voice when you get frustrated? I know I sure do. So please, stop this nonsense.

It is harder to shout in character though. As they said in TDHAIP commentary, shouting in a character voice can be difficult because your voice just goes back to normal. But it did sound much more Zapp than Fry to be honest.

I wouldn't say there was any voicing error on Billy's part in that episode. It sounded purely Zapp to me.

I listened to the zapp clip that gff posted, and after a while it sounds kind of like proffesor Frink. Anyone else think so?

I think the only slight voicing error that Billy ever did was in TDHAIPT, Fry kinda souned like the professor when he said, or sang "you evil metal dork" the dork sounded a little like Hubert, but then again, my sound system on my computers sucks ass, so that's probably all it was.

When Zoidberg says the "Oooh that box!" line in Farnsworth Parabox, I could swear a bit of the Professor creeps into his voice.

If anything, it's Stimpy, not Fry.
and hasn't this been done before? Or is this just the same thread?

I don't think it sounds high enough to be Stimpy. It sounds like Zapp to me. Trust me, if you're getting frustrated, you're going to raise the pitch of your voice. Also, you have to allow a little leeway since these characters are all voiced by the same guy, you know?

yeah I think he does a very good job in seperating the voices... They don't sound alike... well sorta, but still, it's a very good job  :p I wish I could do cool voices

i noticed but i do think it's more to do with the difficulty of yelling and frustration etc etc. west is great at differentiating his voices. but it's only natural that they will sound similar in some way sometimes.

and that was my two cents.

the only part that remotely sounds like fry is the "S" in "stop" which is just rediculous....so no its definately zapp

I didn't think it sounded like Fry on "When Alins Attack," but I'll check the AOI 1 thing and see if it sounds like Stimpy to me. Another voice change I've noticed is on "30% Iron Chef," on one part of it (I forget which part), Elzar sounds like Bender. Or, maybe it's just me.

I remember it now. It was the flashback when young Elzar replaces whats-his-name, Helment Spargle (I don't know how to spell his name) and Elzar says, "Get lost old man. Bam!"

Well, Elzar and Bender are both played by John DiMaggio.  Of course, characters played by the same voice actor will sound like each other!  I never noticed that "Stop exploding, you cowards!" sounded like Fry.  And, yes, people do tend to raise their voices while angry.  I did that in my solo acting piece for forensics, and all the judges noted it.  (My voice is high enough as it is!)  Anyway, I'm rambling here.  So in conclusion, it was Zapp, not Fry.
