Eric had many good roles such as Brock, James, Dexter, Squirtle, Hi-Tech, Para/Dox, but my favorite is DEFINITELY Seto Kaiba. He was awesome in that role.

I hope he returns to voice acting in LA dubbed anime like Rachael Lillis, Mayan Holingshead and Tara Sands did.

@Joel the Pokekid Apologize for the tangent, but I didn't notice Rachael doing voice work since 2011. What does she do now?

In hindsight, I think Eric was one of 4Kids' best voice actors. He really made Brock, James, and Seto Kaiba his own, and I honestly don't think I can really ever forget the character and distinct voices he gave all three of them. I can understand why he moved to focus on his family, though, New York's really not what it used to be in terms of the dubbing scene there.

One of 4Kids more hit and miss actors he was generally better in Pokemon than as human on my side of the territory though his other non Pokemon roles are cool

My favourites are Gourry and Meta Knight

I thought he was one of their best, but hey, that's the beauty of opinions I guess.

Happy Birthday Eric Stuart!

He was without a doubt one of the best VA's in the 4Kids talent pool, no matter what dub he was in, I always felt like Eric gave it his all. I can't really pick a favourite role from his since he was equally awesome as Seto Kaiba, Brock, James and Gourry Gabriev in my books. He was also excellent as Dexter, Hamato Yoshi, Meta Knight, Les and in so many other Pokemon voices.

It's a shame he's retired but every so often he comes back to reprise like for Gourry in the later seasons of Slayers, hopefully he's back as Kaiba for the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! movie.

I think this man's voice acting was honestly really good- it's a shame we haven't heard much from him in recent years.

To anyone who thinks that Eric Stuart has retired for Voice Acting you can't be serious. I heard him to a two part episode on Yugioh Zexal as Jinlon so he hasn't retired yet. ;)

My absolute favorite role of Eric Stuart's was his rendition of Brock. I feel he always seemed to make Brock so warm, inviting, and gentle. Eric made Brock feel like that older brother sort of figure you could look up to when you were down or feeling sad, but was also very wise for his age.

Naturally, I also adore his Gourry Gabriev, Seto Kaiba, and like his James quite a bit. I wish him continued success with his career as a musician nowadays.

Eric, I know you still want to be part of Pokemon again. I checked on the Pokemon Wikia website. Don't worry. I've got a plan. Once I send over the plan to Veronica Taylor, I'll let you in on it. By the way, the Save Our Voice Actors campaign plans to focus on your work as the voice of James.
said at 2:36 AM on Sun Aug 25 2013
@Legacyman SOVA has campaign for many years now, and with little success. What are the chances of the current VAs being replaced now, especially since they have been doing the voices for 7 years?

One of my favourite NY actors/singers. Here are my favourite roles:

Brock and James (Pokémon)
Black Shadow (F-Zero: GP Legend)
Gourry (Slayers)
Seto Kaiba (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
said at 9:58 AM on Tue Aug 20 2013
Agreed. He was truly an excellent voice actor: very talented, and I always loved his work in Pokemon, Slayers, and Yu-Gi-Oh! He's also quite the musician: I would highly recommend checking out some of his albums.

@Fulgore2005 I've noticed that his Gourry sounds way too similar to his Brock.

Despite being instantly recognizable (which could actually be a good quality, depending on perspective), he's a fine VA. He retired, true, but it can't be denied he had quite the career. He's not too bad at singing either, in or out of character.

Any proof for that statement there d20?
