Happy Birthday Ted Lewis!!!

My favorite role of his is definitely King Dedede: "I NEED A MONSTAH TA CLOBBAH DAT DER KIRBY!!!!"

He also rocked as Bakura/Yami Bakura, the Pokemon Stadium Announcer, Giovanni, Flint, James, Eusine, Hobson, Young Odion Ishtar, Escargoon, Chef Kawasaki, Ultimate Ninja, Dalton, Chumley, Jack Atlas, & Mallen in Iron Man: Extremis (A surprisingly dark role for Ted).

I must say he also seems like a really nice, quiet guy (almost like a real-life personification of Ryo Bakura) in the interviews I've seen: https://youtube.com/watch?v=ZkEgEMhtxlc

Ted Lewis seems like a pretty soft-spoken and polite person, I agree (I noticed his Ed Paul moniker there): it was pretty cool to see Dan Green (aka Jay Snyder) directing him there, too.

Happy Birthday, Ted Lewis!

I think it's actually pretty cool how Eric Stuart & him share the same birth date, and they were both the first two English dub actors voices of James in Pokemon as well. It's always pretty cool to here him go from roles like the shy and quiet Tracey to the insane and smugly villainous Yami Bakura, and I also really like his performance as Giovanni as well.

He's also pretty funny (even though I don't care much for the show in general) as King DeDeDe in Kirby, and of his newer roles, I think Jack Atlas is probably his best one so far.

Definitely one of the better talents still working in NYC, at any rate, and it's always nice to hear from him.

Happy Birthday Ted Lewis. A talented VA with so much range!

My favourite performances from the man are King DeDeDe and Escargoon from Kirby Right Back at ya! He played both those characters with a lot of energy and them very entertaining to listen to!

Another two I rather like are Ryo/Yami Bakura and Jack Atlas from the Yugioh series. I know some do not like his work as those characters, mostly because of the accents he used (and I can understand that perspective) but the man made them work in my opinion! He also nailed their characters in general.

I also like his performances as the announcer in Pokemon Stadium, Bandit Keith, Giovanni, Chumley, James, Tracey, Zangulus, Ninja Ned and Doc Nakano!

I'LL KICK DAT KIRBY TO THE CURB. Happy Birthday, Ted Lewis! If it's not his performances as Ryo/Yami Bakura, King Dedede, and Tracey Sketchit that I'm fondly remembering, then it's Lewis' role as the announcer on Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2. What's the point of splashing!? He boasted additional enjoyable performances while voicing characters like Bandit Keith Howard (IN AMERICA), Escargoon, Giovanni, and Chumley Huffington. For the first couple of episodes, Ted Lewis made for a decent James, too; far better than Carter Cathcart.

I'm surprised Tracey is more popular than Giovanni of all his roles on this page but since I won't be here for his birthday, Happy Birthday to one of Pokemon's no scratch that, New York's best voice actors, Tracey is my favourite role ever with King Dedede second and James third and Flint fourth, he was also one of the sole good voices in the Toshinden OVA

@GreenGoblin75 I remember the day I found out that King DeDeDe, Escargoon, Bakura had the same VA...

I honestly don't think I was the same person after that.

He was/is pretty awesome as villainous characters like Bakura as well as Giovanni, and has good range to voice the good counterparts like normal Bakura, Tracey, etc.

Does anyone know haw to contact Ted Lewis? I adore him and would like to send him fan mail, but I can't seem to find any contact info online. No email, website, mailing address, phone number, or anything. I get that he might do it for privacy reasons, but he really is my absolute favourite and would love to tell him.

Happy Birthday Ted Lewis!

4Kids seriously had a great pool of VA's and Ted Lewis is no exception. He has such a great deliciously evil Brit voice for Giovanni and Yami Bakura and he was also excellent as Ryo Bakura, Bandit Keith, Tracey Sketchit, Zangulus, King Dedede, Escargoon and The Ultimate Ninja.

I'm glad that he was able to come back as Giovanni in the TCPI dub.

It's most likely that he's returning as Bakura for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions and I'm definitely looking forward to that as well.

I wish Ted was doing more voice work, it'd be nice if he got to voice in an NYAV Post dub in the near future. I'm sure he'd be great to have in a Gundam series of some kind, that or a role in the new Berserk series.

Happy Birthday Ted Lewis!

I like him best as Tracey Sketchit, but he also shines as Jack Atlas and Yami Bakura, IMO.

Happy birthday, Ted.

He does an amazing job as Giovanni, Tracey, Bakura and Zangulus. Surprised he also did Dalton.

@Fulgore2005 His first VAing role, incidentally, was Etoh in "Record of Lodoss War". (Ditto with Lisa Ortiz's Deedlit.) I don't think it's his greatest role by any means, but I do have a soft spot for the dub in general, and I thought he got a lot more comfortable in the role as he went on. He definitely improved a lot in the "Chronicles of the Heroic Knight" dub, though.
