Happy Birthday Gilbert Gottfried!

My top 5 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Iago (Aladdin)
2.) Mr. Mxyzptlk (Superman: The Animated Series/Justice League Action/Lego Batman 3)
3.) Kraang Sub-Prime (TMNT)
4.) Doctor Bender (The Fairly Odd Parents)
5.) Aflac Duck (Aflac Incorporated)

I also really enjoyed his Jerry Seinfeld impression on Clerks: The Animated Series. An interesting example of his range.

He's one of those voice actors that seems to be perfectly cast in any of the roles he does.

I don't know what it is about his voice, but hearing it in all these characters that he has voiced makes them enjoyable to listen to.

I Love his voice; Seriously, He SOUNDS like that IRL; Seriously, Is it just me, or does he Voice so many birds, that he sounds like a Bird even when he's not Animated;
My Favorite Roles of his are:
Aflac Duck(He Voiced him until he got fired for making Jokes about Tsunamis, or as HE called them, Moonamis),Mr. Mxyzptlk, Digit from Cyberchase, and His Mini-me aka Widgit, or as I like to call him, Midget, and Rick Platypus(I K-N-E-W I Recognized his voice when I ORIGINALLY Watched that Episode SEVERAL Years ago)

Happy Birthday Gilbert Gottfried!

He has one of the most "soothing" voices of all time.

I loved his performances as Iago, Mr. Mxyzptlk and Kraang Sub-Prime.

Happy birthday Gilbert Gottfried!!!

My favorite role from him would have to be Kraang Sub-Prime. I honestly felt that he did a good job in making Sub-Prime both intellectual and exceedingly funny and off-the-wall.

His Mr. Mxyzptlk is one of the highlights of the 90's Superman cartoon (which as you know, I'm not really a fan of). I just wish Mxy was used more often, 'cause Gottfried is just as enjoyable as he's always been.

I've also enjoyed his live-action role of Nick Knack in the 80's Superboy TV show and his brief but hilarious appearance in Beverly Hills Cop II.

Does Gilbert still use his trademark voice even if he's in his early 60s?

@carlitosbug He probably uses it if the project he's involved with wants him to.

Happy 61st Birthday. My does Gilbert Gottfried have an easily recognisable voice, when it comes to characters like Iago from Aladdin, Digit from Cyberchase, one of Kraang's VAs from the Nicktoons TMNT, and other such roles he has on the list.
said at 4:43 AM on Sun Feb 28 2016
@CuriousUserX90 That's not even displaying the other voices he can do. Or even his real, deep, soft-spoken voice.

Happy 61st, Gil!

As I've said before, he's actually got quite an astonishing voice range. Just listen to his James Mason, Jerry Seinfeld or Groucho Marx impressions. He just mostly uses his 'standup' voice in his voice roles.
He is one of the most intriguing and complexing comedians I have ever come across. He's full of surprises, and admittedly some of those surprises are good ones.
As of late I've even gotten used to his 'standup' voice.
He's weird, unique, and sometimes in his 1986 video, actually pretty funny. His voice, his timing, his body language... there's no one else like him!
said at 1:31 AM on Wed Nov 25 2015
He actually kind of has a good ear for impressions, or at least he can do more funny voices than the one he's known for.
If you look at his impressions in 'Greetings from Gilbert' (1986), you'd be quite surprised.

That voice we keep hearing from Gilbert isn't even his natural voice, his natural voice is revealed here!:
said at 2:42 PM on Thu Nov 13 2014
@Jacob M. Keene He was very soft spoken on Saturday Night Live. You know, this is the voice I hear in my head when I read stuff like his article for CNN on Robin Williams. That's the voice I picture when he's being really sincere.

It's so weird to see him his eyes open, I'm so use to him squinting
said at 10:08 PM on Sat Sep 20 2014
@Music Meister He didn't squint so much on SNL. Also there's that photograph his sister took of him.
said at 12:58 AM on Fri Aug 1 2014
Oh, and he kinda looks like Merritt Stone, don't you think?

I love that photo! That salmon shirt really complements his olive skin, and the way it really pops against that dark background is just WOW!

I love the fact that he is playing a Kraang in the season 2 finale of Ninja Turtles.

I wouldn't read 50 Shades of Grey but if Gilbert Gottfried narrated it as an official audio book (like he did for Jest Comedy),I'd give the series a shot.

Didn't he lose being the Aflac Duck due to his comments at Japan during the tsunami?
