They're all pretty darn good. I think ultimately I'd have to go with Douglas, but Val and Jeff are both credible replacements.

I'm going with Val Bettin, mainly because I think he makes the character sound more like an authoritative figure and ruler whilst still keeping that jolly nature. He just completes the character IMO.

Douglas Seale was the original and he still does a fine job I just think he leans too much on the jolly side and sounds like the typical "comedic father" other Disney movies had.

Jeff Bennett is kind of like his performance as Professor Porter from The Legend Of Tarzan. It's alright, just nothing special.

They are all fine, but it does annoy me that none of them share racial ties with the character. Arabs & Middle Eastern folks rarely get this kind of spotlight in the cinema, so I really find it a missed opportunity to use non-Arabs. Especially when the setting & stylization is so heavily ingrained in the appeal of the film.

Disney have been better about it since then (e.g. Mulan, Big Hero 6, Moana, Princess and the Frog) but yeah, it's unfortunate.

The original VA is on first place for me of course. Jeff sounds like Merlin in that one :/

I'm the most used to Val so he gets my vote.
Douglas originated the role so he is 2nd.
Jeff Bennet sounds like Elderly dexter's dad.

A tough choice between Douglas and Val.

Like the Genie, the Sultan's characterisation changed with his voice.

Douglas' Sultan is gentle and sweet, if somewhat of a pushover/frequent victim of Jafar's hypnotism. Still nice acting, though.

At first Val comes off as being an impression of Douglas. But... he has more weight in his voice, a bit more authority. He's still a lovable guy, but less weak-willed.

Not sure who to choose, really. They're both great!

Douglas Seale was best in the part. Val Bettin and Jeff Bennett are both remarkable impressions, but I can only hear Dr. Dawson out of Val Bettin and can tell that's Jeff Bennett with Jeff Bennett. xD

Val & Jeff were average.
