Over the years Billy West has played 1000s of voices.  Some say he is this generation's Mel Blanc, but which character do you like him voicing the most?

He did the voice of Doug? No fucking way! I love that show! I wish I could find it on some file sharing program.

It would of course have to be Fry for me, although I am surprised to hear that Billy voiced Doug. I would never have thought of that. The hallmark of an expert that is in my opinion.

I'd have to chime in and pick Fry, too. However technically Fry's not too far from Billy's natural voice, so Zoidberg, Farnsworth etc. show off his voice acting talent even more. I just like the sound of Fry best.   :)

Also, remember that in TMLH he has to do several characters at various ages ranging from adult to infant, and he does a terrific job there.

I could tell he had something to do with the show of Doug(The narrating of "Quailman! At his Thicket of Solitude!" was obviously him). I could kind of tell he was Roger Klotz too because it sounds sort of like his Glermo-chopped-in-half voice. I couldn't tell he was Doug though, for some odd reason.

I voted for R&S, but to be honest, it was tied with Fry as my personal favourite.

I'm voting for Stimpy without Ren as he only voiced Ren after John Kricfalusi (original voice of Ren and show creater) got sacked.

I have to say Fry. Billy West just plays him in a way that you could never imagine anyone else ever doing the voice.

It was a tough decision between the Professor and Fry, but in the end I picked Fry.   ;)

It is my understanding that Billy West also did the voice of ZIM in the pilot episode of "Invader ZIM". The pilot was different from the very first episode.

That was Richard Horvitz doing Zim's voice, right? I mean, that's actually his normal talking voice(I saw him talking on some thing about Angry Beavers on a video interview or whatever).

Billy West is the KING!

Farnsworth gets my vote, as his is the funniest-sounding.

I knew he played Doug in the orginal Nickalodian version, I think they got a new guy for the crappy Disney version.

I kinda grew up when Ren and Stimpy was at it's hight of popularity. However it is the velour fog who get's my vote.

Actually Billy still did the voice of Doug on Disney, he just changed it to sound more like a teenage.

Man, they should put a boycott on shows about junior high, as I don't want to see another show where everyone's worried about what they look like and who's going to what parties and whatnot. The old Doug rocked though.

I knew he did Doug, but are you kidding? He did Disney's Doug, too? I'm shocked.

I'm voting Professor Farnsworth. Fry is awesome, but it's pretty much his own normal voice. Zoidberg is great too, but I think he gets to improvise more, with all of the Professor-isms. "Oh my...eh-wha?" Come on, that stuff is gold.

I hate Billy's Bugs Bunny. 100% hate. It makes me sad that he's doing it. Futurama is definitely his best work, if you ask me.

Fry, definitely. He fits the character perfectly. I knew Billy West was the bee and the M&M, but I had no idea about the Doug thing, thats awesome!

On Season 3 of the Futurama DVD.  Billy West does audio commentary as Fry and Zoidberg on some episodes.

Gotta love the Bee and the M&M. His performance as Zim in the pilot isn't as appropriate as Richard Horvitz's, but it's still VERY funny, especially the exchange he has with Dib about how cool his food launcher looks["Ooh, QUIT it!"]. Zapp and Zoid always make me laugh[and start with Zs!  :D], but the Professor has so many lines that make me giggle- I'll go with him. Ohhh-my yes.

I wasn't a real big fan of Doug, but I loved Ren and Stimpy (and still watch it late night on Spike TV). I miss that show, and I think Billy West did an outstanding job. I think Stimpy was one character who's voice would change a lot over the course of one episode.

EDIT: BTW, if this hasn't been stated, check out http://www.imdb.com  and search for Billy West to see what else he's done.

[Doctor Zoidberg]ZZOOIIIIDDDBBERRGG!!![/DZ]

I have respect for anybody who can do a voice like Dr. Zoidberg's so well. It's pretty neat, and very hard to imitate, so that's what I voted.

I can do the Nixon voice pretty well if that counts for anything.
