Top 10 Male Voice Actors: 1990s

Continuing our look at the best voice actors throughout the decades we turn our attention to the Top Ten Male Voice Actors of the 1990s! Before commenting please take a second to review the description written on both of the Top-Ten Pre-1980s lists to see the ground rules on how the list was compiled. Also, remember that you can not only leave comments below the list but you can also visit our forums where you can be a part of an ongoing discussion about this or any of our other Top Ten topics.

Going through the selection process for the 90s was especially difficult. Mainly because of the number of voice actors that were already used on the 80s list AND the number of actors I had to save for the future 2000s list.  For some voice actors, their 'prime' decade is very obvious but there are others that it is basically a flip of the coin as far as which decade to choose.  SO, PLEASE understand before you post 'How could you forget so and so" or "Where is whatchamacallit" that they could have appeared on a previous list (see 1980s) or they may be coming in a future list (2000s).

I poured over credits and lists for countless hours and probably came up with about 20 different Top Tens before I found one that I was comfortable putting out there. Remember, this is not about who voiced one great character, or your favorite character. It is also not about who was on your favorite show. This is about who, over the course of the entire decade, just compiled a resume that no one else could compete with. For each list we add a few Honorable Mentions for people we feel deserve to be mentioned in the discussion either because they just missed making the list themselves, or because they voiced an iconic character during their time period. This list may have the most honorable mentions that I have ever given out, but what did you expect from the best decade of cartoons ever.

So, for the Male Voice Actors of the 1990s here are your Honorable Mentions

Mike Judge:
The creator and voice for not only Beavis and Butthead but also for Hank Hill from King of the Hill. Mike Judge was probably heard by every single teenager that lived in the decade of the 1990s. He may not have as big of a resume as the rest of the individuals we will talk about on this list but this is one case in which these few roles is more then enough to get him a mention.

David Kaye: 
Equally as busy in the last decade as he was in the 90s, Kaye's first major role in the 90s was probably General Hawk in the DIC version of the G.I. Joe series. After that he would also voice the likes of Iron Man, Superman, Optimus Prime, Charles Xavier, Captain America and Daredevil.  His three most frequently voiced characters however are those of Clank from the Ratchet and Clank video game series, Sesshomaru of the Inuyasha franchise and last but certainly not least, Megatron from both the Unicron Trilogy and Beast Wars/Beast Machines.

Garry Chalk:
Spending over two decades in the voice acting business Garry Chalk definitely deserves a mention on this list.  Like David Kaye, Chalk also worked in the DIC version of G.I. Joe.  His most famous roles are the likes of He-Man in the New Adventures of He-Man, Man at Arms in the 2002 reboot of MOTU and Dr. Robotnick from Sonic Underground.  By far his most famous role though is that of Optimus Prime in both the Unicron Trilogy and Beast Machines/Wars.

Jess Harnell:
A list about famous 90 Voice Actors would definitely be incomplete without mentioning the likes of Jess Harnell. Harnell's early work in the decade consisted of the Super Secret Squirrel Show, Bonkers, I Am Weasel, Jungle Cubs, Iron Man and the Tick just to name a few. He also has had the pleasure of voicing the video game icon, Crash Bandicoot as well as the Live-Action movie version of Ironhide from the Transformers franchise.  Far and above though most people will recognize Jess as the iconic, Wakko Warner from the Animaniacs!

Townsend Coleman:
The original voice of the animated form of Michelangelo, Townsend Coleman just has one of those easily identifiable voices.  Even though Michelangelo is my favorite role for Coleman many people will also recognize him as the voice of the Tick! He also voiced Wayne Gretzky on Prostars, Gobo Fraggle on Fraggle Rock and Scott Howard on Teen Wolf. One of his most recent major roles since the 90s was that of Sentinel Prime from Transformers Animated.

And now the Top 10 Male Voice Actors: 1990s

Mark Hamill

Iconic Role: The Joker

A two-time Annie Award Nominee, Mark Hamill can trace his voice acting resume all the way back to The New Scooby Doo Movies and Jeannie which aired in 1973. Although 'sidetracked' by a minor project called Star Wars, Mark Hamill would return to the voice over world with a vengeance in the 1990s.  He voiced roles in shows such as The Tick, Swat Kats, The New Woody Woodpecker Show, as well as a handful of Scooby-Doo movies. Although, in my introduction I mentioned that one role in and of itself is not enough for someone to land on this list, this is pretty much the one exception to that rule on this list. It is widely accepted that Mark Hamill's portrayal of, the Joker, on a good number of Batman/DC projects is one of the most iconic voices of the entire decade.  Although recently(2011) he announced he would be retiring as the Joker, his time spent in the role is simply unforgettable!

Ian James Corlett

Iconic Role: Cheetor

Although I usually don't touch to much on anime performances during these countdowns I would be remissed if I did not mention the fact that Corlett did a ton of work in the Dragonball franchise.  Like a few others on this list, one of Corlett's first western animation roles came via the DIC version of G.I. Joe. He voiced Gnawgahyde on the series. A lot of people will also recognize Ian as the voice of Dr. Wily from the Captain N series. Ironically, this video game connection would come back around at the end of the decade when he voiced Knuckles in Sonic Underground.

Between the two Sonic roles he would also appear in Double Dragon, Vortech, Stone Protectors, Mummies Alive, and Sabrina just to name a few. Some of his best work of the decade came from his role as Cheetor on Beast Machines/Wars. He also voiced Sentinel One on the series. 

Corlett was one of those that it was hard to pinpoint a 'decade' on because in the 2000s he also voiced the roles of Funshine Bear in the Care Bears franchise, Andy Larkin from What's With Andy, Taz on Baby Looney Tunes, The Dad on Johnny Test and the Conductor on Dinosaur Train.

Cam Clarke

Iconic Role: Leonardo

Cam Clarke is one of those that has the rare ability to trace his voice acting roots back nearly 4 decades. That's right folks, Clarke's first voice role came almost 40 years ago when he voiced characters in the Smurfs and the Magic Flute as well as in Butch Cassidy. In the 80s he voiced roles in Robotech, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, Denver the Last Dinosaur, Dino-Riders and the California Raisins Show.

It wasn't until the 90s though until Clarke really started landing major roles. None of which were more famous then Leonardo on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He also played the lead role on Mr Bogus, Igor smith on Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Ooze on Captain Planet, Simba on Timon and Pumbaa, Die Fledermaus on the Tick and Mr. Fantastic from Spider-Man. I'm not even listing the dozens of other shows he did voices for in the decade.

His 2000s resume consists of such roles as Stuart from Pepper Ann, a variety of roles on Clifford the Big Red Dog, He-Man and Prince Adam on the 2002 He-Man series, Aoi Rokusho on Naruto, Freddy the Ferret on Back at the Barnyard, Doc Samson from Avengers EMH, Charles Xavier from X-Men, not to mention a variety of video game roles including Liquid Snake from the Metal Gear series.

Dan Castellaneta

Iconic Role: Homer Simpson

Although seemingly another singular role that could by itself land an actor on this list, Dan Castellaneta has a resume that includes much more than simply his role as Homer Simpson.  He has won 2 Annie Awards for his role as Homer as well as garnered 2 Emmy nominations and 4 Emmy wins.  I would like to take a minute though to mention some of the other voices that Dan has done over the years.

In the 90s Dan voiced role in Talespin, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Fievel's American Tails, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Tick, Taz-Mania, Quack Pack, Rugrats, Eek the Cat, Casper, Hercules and Cow and Chicken among others.  His most known roles outside of Homer Simpson would probably be as the Genie in a variety of Aladdin projects, Earthworm Jim in the show of the same name, Doc Brown in the Back to the Future animated series and Megavolt in Darkwing Duck. Castellaneta has truly been heard by all!

Corey Burton

Iconic Role: Ludwig Von Drake

Being nominated for two Annie Awards in the same category and winning one of them in 2003 is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the voice over career of Corey Burton. The most fascinating part of Burton's resume is the number of different (prominent) audiences/fandoms he appeals to.

Let us start with one of the biggest audiences out there, the Disney fans.  Burton has been the voice of the classic Ludwig Von Drake for over two decades now after he took over the role from voice acting legend, Paul Frees.  He has also voiced the Mad Hatter, Grumpy, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the White Rabbit, Captain Hook, Dale (of Chip and Dale), Gus from Cinderella, Mr. Smee, Flotsam & Jetsam, the Doorknob and the Magic Mirror in a variety of Disney shows, movies and games. Suffice it to say that Disney fans love Corey Burton.

Another group of fans of Burton's work would be the Transformers fans.  He started with this audience by portraying the likes of Brawn, Sunstreaker, Spike Witwicky, Alpha Trion, and Shockwave among others on the original 1984 Transformers series. He would later come back to the franchise in Transformers Animated by voicing Ratchet, Megatron, and much to the fans delight, reprising his role as Shockwave.

The third major group he appeals to are the Star Wars fans! He voiced Count Dooku in a number of projects including both Clone Wars series, he has voiced Cad Bane, Ziro the Hutt, Kronos-327, Whorm Loathsome and Ki Adi Mundi in a variety of projects just to name the main characters he has voiced.

Finally he is big amongst the superhero fans. Batman Beyond, Batman Brave and the Bold, Justice League (Brainiac among others), Legion of Superheroes, Spider-man, Static Shock, Superman the Animated Series, New Batman Adventures and Young Justice have all had the honor of having Corey Burton voice characters in them and thats not even talking about the DC Movies and video games he has appeared in.

Just in case it's not enough to have huge followings in those four circles let us also mention his roles as Gruffi Gumm in the Gummi Bears, Tomax in the original G.I. Joe, Jaga in the new ThunderCats and Zeus from the God of War video game franchise.

Charlie Adler

Iconic Role: Buster Bunny

A one time Annie nominee what makes Charlie Adler so impressive amongst the voice over population is the range characters he is able to portray. Never one to be type cast he has successfully pulled off everything from cuddly kid show dinosaurs to the most ruthless villains of a generation.  When you pair that with a resume that is just about to hit the 30 year mark, Adler no doubt has earned his spot on this list.

Adler started his voice over career in the mid-80s voicing the lovable Spike from the My Little Pony Franchise.  His work throughout the remainder of the 80s is actually impressive enough on its own that you would have thought he would have earned a spot on the Top Ten 80s list!  Just look at some of the roles he played during the decade; Rowdy Roddy Piper on Rock n Wrestling, Low-Light on G.I. Joe, Silverbolt on Transformers, Eric Raymond and Tech Rat on Jem, Deputy Fuzz and the main villain Tex-Hex on Bravestarr, Captain Caveman Jr. on the Flintstone Kids and Paddington Bear on the show of the same name.

When you take a closer look at his overall resume though there can be no mistake, it was the 90s in which Charlie Adler dominated the voice acting scene.  The 90s saw Adler play the roles of Mad Dog on Talespin, Dripple the Dog from the Tom & Jerry Franchise, Mechanikles on Aladdin, Snively on Sonic the Hedgehog, T-Bone on Swat Kats, Jammet on Capitol Critters, Stalker Slaughter on Captain Planet, Dr. Droid on Mighty Ducks, Professor Monkey-for-a-Head on Earthworm Jim, Ned on Jungle Cubs, Spat and Bill on Eek the Cat, Ickis on Aaahh! Real Monsters, Ed Bighead on Rocko's Modern Life, I.R. Baboon on I am Weasel and both the Cow and the Chicken on Cow & Chicken. Seriously, every memorable show from the 90s this man voiced at least one character on!! Not to mention probably his most iconic role of his career, Buster Bunny on Tiny Toons!!!

In the past decade he has shown his range of characters by moving away from many of the comedic and kid friendly characters he came to master in the 90s to showing a darker side with the like of such characters as Gung-Ho on G.I. Joe Resolute, Starscream in the live-action Transformers movies, and perhaps his other most iconic role, Cobra Commander on both G.I. Joe Resolute and G.I. Joe Renegades. He has also portrayed Dr. Doom in a number of Marvel Projects. Not to mention the fact that he has also continued to voice many other memorable comedic roles in the last decade as well.  Oh, and did I mention he also has voiced the Hamburglar in a number of projects as well!!

Billy West

Iconic Role: Philip J. Fry

This one time Annie nominee can trace his voice acting roots all the way back to 1988 when he was given his first voice role as Cecil on the show Beany and Cecil.  Right from the beginning he had a knack for landing lead roles. A trend that would continue when he picked up the role of Doug Funnie on the classic Nickelodeon cartoon, Doug. Not one to sit on his laurels he quickly added both Ren and Stimpy from obviously, Ren & Stimpy to his resume. Next came Slimer from Extreme Ghostbuster, followed by Bugs Bunny, Pepe le Pew and Elmer Fudd on a variety of Looney Tunes projects.  Let's see then we had Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, Rayman from the series of the same name, Pidge from Voltron Third Dimension, Mr. Whiskers from Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, Philip J. Fry and the Professor from Futurama, Invader Zim from the show of the same name, Popeye and Woody the Woodpecker just to name his lead roles.  I could go on to dedicate another paragraph or two to outline all the other minor roles this man has portrayed like I have done with many of the others on the list, but when that many LEAD roles can be rattled off so quickly I really just don't think it's necessary. Ask any voice actor in the business today who the most talented man in the businees is and 9 times out of ten Billy Wests name will be included in the group that is mentioned right after they get the Frank Welker mention out of the way ;)

Maurice LaMarche

Iconic Role: The Brain

Let's see here, an Annie nomination, an Annie win, a Daytime Emmy nomination, two Emmy nominations and an Emmy win....That pretty much gives you all the evidence you need as to why this man deserves a spot on our list.  An unrivaled voice impersonator (Orson Welles being one of his most famous voices) Maurice LaMarche has been entertaining audiences with his voice work for over three decades now!

In the 80s he lent his voice to Chief Quimby, as well as most of the 'bad' characters on Inspector Gadget, to Popeye, to George Wilson and Henry Mitchell on Dennis the Menace, to Dishonest John on Beany and Cecil, to Egon Spengler on Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters, the Real Ghostbusters and later Extreme Ghostbusters, to Sid on Gravedale High and Destro & Serpentor on the DIC version of G.I. Joe! 

That resume is impressive enough on its own but like Adler on the previous spot in this countdown his 90s resume even trumps that list, impossible as that may sound.  Starting with Zoltan and Ketchuck on Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, going to Dizzy Devil on Tiny Toons, to Verminous Skumm &  Duke Nukem on Captain Planet, to Jeremy Hawke on the Critic, to Drew and Hugh Tazmanian Devil on Taz-Mania, to Big Bob Pataki on Hey Arnold, to Etno Polino on Space Goods, to the Narrator on Johnny Bravo and thats not even counting the dozens upon dozens of shows he played minor characters on. Oh yeah, its also not counting the 70+ characters he has played on the smash hit, Futurama, including Calculon and Morbo and its also not counting perhaps his most famous role of all, The Brain from the Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain!!

He has been just as busy since the 90s playing the likes of Yosemite Sam on a variety of Looney Tunes projects, Mortimer Mouse on a variety of Disney projects, a variety of character on Harvey Birdman, and so many others I could list but in order to let you continue with the countdown I will simply tell you to check out his profile on our page to see all of the other great characters this man has played. I have had the pleasure to interview Mr. LaMarche and he is easily one of the nicest celebrities I have ever come across. He definitely helped define a generation as far as cartoons and voice acting is concerned!

Rob Paulsen

Iconic Role: Yakko Warner/Pinky

Since we have given awards when possible for all of the other actors on our list we might as well do it here as well. This man is a 4-Time Annie nominee and 3-Time winner, a 2-Time Daytime Emmy Nominee and 1 time winner and probably the best 'singing' voice actor of all-time. Getting ready to surpass his 30th year in the business Rob Paulsen voiced his first role in Smurfs back in 1981.

In his first decade of work he gave us Corky from Snorks, Tripwire & Snowjob from G.I. Joe, Hadji from Jonny Quest, Slingshot & Air Raid from Transformers, Gladstone Gander from Ducktales, Boober Fraggle from Fraggle Rock, Rude Dog from Rude Dog and the Dweebs, Flash from Chip and Dales Rescue Rangers, Gusto Gummi from Gummi Bears and Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

As I have said with many of the other gentlemen on this list though, it was no doubt that the 90s was the decade of Rob Paulsen.  Starting with Mummato from Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Fowlmouth from Tiny Toons, Dick Dastardly from Yo Yogi, Steelbeak from Darkwing Duck, P.J. Pete from Goof Troop, Bubsy Bobcat from Bubsy, Max from Mighty Max, Antoine Depardieu  from Sonic the Hedgehog, Spike & Chomper from Land Before Time, Throttle from Biker Mice from Mars, Banzai the Hyena from Timon and Pumbaa, Arthur from the Tick, Hathi from Jungle Cubs, Brick and Boomer from the Powerpuff Girls, Major Glory from Dexter's Laboratory, Stanley Ipkiss from Ace Ventura and Spooky from Casper.

However, by far his most famous and fan favorite roles are those of Yakko Warner, Pinky and Dr. Otto Scratchansniff from Animaniacs.  More recently Rob has voiced roles in Jimmy Neutron, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, Codename Kids Next Door, Loonatics Unleashed, Danny Phantom, Kim Possible, Ben 10, Biker Mice from Mars, The Replacements, Back at the Barnyard, Curious George, Fairly Oddparents, The Looney Tunes Show, Planet Sheen, Penguins from Madagascar and ThunderCats. Not to mention that next year he will return to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise as Donatello!!

Jim Cummings

Iconic Role: Winnie the Pooh/Tigger

This two-time Annie nominee and one time Daytime Emmy nominee, like Frank Welker, this man could easily have gone on just about any of the various decade lists. One of the greatest voices of all-time, I decided best fit on this list. We are obviously talking about none other than the legendary, Jim Cummings.  Starting with Dumbos Circus back in 1984, Jim has been sharing his vocal talents with us for over 25 years! 

In the 80s he gave us Witterquick in the Visionaries, El Capitan in Ducktales, Fat Cat & Monterey Jack in Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers, Zummi Gummi in Gummi Bears, as well as perhaps his most famous and long standing roles as both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too!!

In the 90s he gave us Don Karnage in Talespin, Mega Brain in Widget the World Watcher, Bonkers in Raw Toonage and obviously Bonkers, Pete in Goof Troop and various other Disney projects, Ioz in Pirates of Dark Water, Darkwing Duck, Lurch in the Adams Family, Morocco Mole in Two Stupid Dogs, Dakota Duke in Wild West C.O.W.-boys of Moo Mesa, Mayor Manx in Swat kats, Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog, Taz in Taz-Mania, Razoul in Aladdin, Sly Sludge in Captain Planet, M.O.D.O.K. in Iron Man, Savage Dragon in the show of the same name, Kaa in Jungle Cubs, Colonel in 101 Dalmatians, Ed the Hyena in the Lion King and Cat in CatDog.

Since the 90s he has voiced Fuzzy Lumpkins in Powerpuff Girls, Tantor in the Legend of Tarzan, Jonah Hex in the show of the same name, Ray from Princess and the Frog and Thanos on the Super Hero Squad just to name a few. He even ranks in the top 10 of all-time box office stars thanks to his many many roles in Disney films among others. He is second among voice actors only to Frank Welker.

So, what do you all think? Where did I get it right and where did I go so awfully wrong? Did I forget a major male voice actor of the era in question, or at least your favorite? Can you truly change the self proclaimed, Expert's mind?

This was The, er, I mean My Top Ten...What's yours?

Great lists you've made dedicated to each voice actor and actress who have helped defined voice acting from the pre-1980's to the 1990's! Can't wait to see your choices for the 2000s and the 2010s :)

@Ikrani I didn't feel like his resume quite stood up against those listed.
said at 10:54 PM on Tue Jul 9 2013
I'm surprised that neither Harry Shearer or Hank didn't make the list. I would put both of them ahead of Dan Castellaneta. IMO they have more vocal talent, Castellaneta's voices sound very similar. He might change the accent but the sound is the same. But it is a popular show and Homer is a popular pick.

@Queeg Outside of Simpsons though they really don't have much for a resume for the decade in question
said at 11:27 AM on Thu Jul 3 2014
@Queeg Voice acting isn't just about making your voice sound different, it's mainly about putting yourself into the character's shoes and feeling their emotions and letting their outlet be your voice. I know many VAs who sound the same in all of their rolls, but pull them off PERFECTLY.

I just looked at the page and was barely born when that was out. I'm curious how it's connected to Sonic though.

@pete You should read up on it then - its all about a kid that gets transported into the video game world - didnt you notice on the page that there are a ton of other video game characters?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 12:13 PM on Mon Nov 7 2011
@OptimusSolo One nitpick though; Sonic never appeared on Captain N. He's made by Sega, which at the time was Nintendo's main competitor so he would have been highly unlikely to show up. Furthermore, he debuted right around the time the show was ending. What was truly interesting about Ian Corlett was that he played Mega Man in his cartoon after doing his enemy Dr. Wily in Captain N. Though Knuckles is still a notable role.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 12:18 AM on Tue Nov 8 2011
@NCZ When did I ever say that Sonic appeared in Captain N? I said Dr. Wily was in Captain N...
NCZ (Admin)
said at 3:56 PM on Tue Nov 8 2011
@OptimusSolo Right, it didn't say the character himself appeared, but the article did mention a connection between Captain N and "Sonic Underground", while the two series were unrelated.

@NCZ Ahh yes I see that now, that's what I get for writing all those entries in one sitting :(
said at 1:43 PM on Sat Nov 5 2011
Kevin Conroy should be on here for the same reason Hamill was though he doesn't do much voice work other than Batman or another role in the franchise. Minor correction Garry Chalk voiced Optimus Primal not Optimus Prime in Beast Wars/Beast Machines. You also forgot to mention Ian Cortlett voiced Mega Man and I'm not sure what Captain N is or how it's connected to Sonic but is there a Dr. Wily in there as well. Only guys that deserve an honorable mention are James Avery for Shredder, Scott Mcneil for Dinobot and Rattrap and his other BW roles, and Richard Newman for Rhinox and his other roles. Other than that great list don't disagree with anyone on it.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 1:57 PM on Sat Nov 5 2011
@pete First of all, Conroy only really did Batman so that doesn't warrant a spot, Second, when I say Optimus Prime it should be understood that it means both him and Primal, Third, I didn't forget about Mega Man just chose not to list is, Fourth, wow you don't know what Captain N is? Maybe you should research it a little since its the exact same Dr. Wily, I thought about mentioning Avery but didn't think he had quite enough to deserve a mention, and Newman definitely didn't deserve a mention just because of Rhinox I mean come on now. As for McNeil, please read the bold line in the second paragraph of the introduction ;)
said at 3:44 PM on Sun Nov 6 2011
@OptimusSolo I didbn;t say Richard Newman should be on here JUST for it I just think that's the role he should be on her as I said the same for Avery and Mcneil. Newman diid plennty 90's work such as DBZ's Ocean Dub and Spider Man Unlimited
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 10:25 PM on Sun Nov 6 2011
@pete Please don't be offended by this but...that makes absolutely no sense lol
said at 10:34 PM on Mon Nov 7 2011
@OptimusSolo I goofed my comment. My point is every one has their iconic role on this list and Rhinox is Richard Newman and there's plenty of other roles he can be on here for too such as the Ocean Dub of DBZ he had quite a handful there.
said at 10:42 PM on Mon Nov 7 2011
@OptimusSolo Scratch this whole Richard Newman just checked his page he hasn't had enough roles to be on here and nly had 2 roles in DBZ. He has had iconic roles though in my opinion.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 12:15 AM on Tue Nov 8 2011
@pete Of course, everyone has had an iconic role at some point pretty much but this is about the most prominent voice actors over the entire decade something that none of the people you listed really did. (except for maybe 1 but I have him saved for the 2000s list)
said at 11:36 AM on Sat Nov 5 2011
