Alice in Wonderland Alice in Wonderland


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Jabberwock with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Alice in Wonderland

The Jabberwock is the titular creature of the nonsensical poem "Jabberwocky". It is a manxome beast with eyes of flame that resides in the tulgey wood and makes burbling noises. Its one weakness is the vorpal sword, by which it is decapitated in the poem.

This comparison is a toughie. None of them completely hit home with me. Mr. T performs the hell out the Jabberwock, and yet he sort of turns him into a different species version of Clubber Lang (and is animated to look like one too). Keith does real well with the voice, but a Jabberwock that can be tamed is definitely not what Lewis Carroll had in mind. Roger isn't bad but his Jabberwock sounds a bit drab, and the sound clip drags a little. As for, Christopher, he has a very powerful voice to be sure, and yet in my personal opinion (and I know I'm in the minority here) in this case his vocal performance isn't as compelling as it ought to have been. I'm not casting a vote here.

Roger and Christopher are hands down the most intimidating. I'd say Roger has a bigger advantage because he has more material to work with, but Christopher's voice can not be denied.

And Mr T ... I love Mr T, but this is just ... odd.

There is little competition. While Lee said only two phrases, he still more intimidating, powerful and stunning than all the others. Then again he had the most powerful male voice cinema has ever known..

Mr. T is my favorite. I just can't help it, I love Mr. T, and he seems to be having a whole lotta fun in the role. Ah pity da foo' who messes wit' Mr. T!!! But in all seriousness, I really think he does a boss job as the Jabberwock. His voice does have some beastly growliness and his tough guy attitude is pretty entertaining.

Christopher Lee is pretty awesome. Kinda sad that he didn't get much in terms of material, 'cause he's actually pretty boss.

Keith Hampshire plays a very different version, but boy, he's really cool. His Jabberwock is more of a sympathetic version and Hampshire does a great job in playing him as an okay creature to hang around with.

Roger Jackson is pretty creepy, but he doesn't leave a big impression on me.

I'm seriously having trouble deciding between Roger Jackson and Christopher Lee. They're both just so good here.

I have so got to go with Roger on this one. He nailed the role perfectly. To me, the Jabberwocky is supposed to be a more serious, sinister character, and that's what Roger's interpretation is.

Mr. T is good, but for a completely different reason than Roger. He's doing a more comedic version of the character, and it works quite well. He manages to sound mean and tough yet still funny.

Chris just sounds too old to me. He's menacing and serious enough, but too old IMO.

Keith is the polar opposite of Roger: he's doing a straight-up comic version of the character. It's good for his version of the character, but it's just not how the character was originally written to be. I like the voice by itself, though. :)

Gonna give it to Roger. Christopher Lee is great, but he didn't have much material to work with, therefore couldn't really do much. Plus, Roger comes across as more menacing to me.

Christopher Lee is great, as always. Intimidating and grabbing, but... well, it's Christopher Lee. And you know it. So in the end, I don't hear the Jabberwock, I hear Christopher Lee, which is always an awesome thing to hear, but the immersiveness and intimidation is cut by his iconicness, and his short screentime.

Roger Jackson, imo, is even /more/ intimidating with the extra pluses of not sounding so recognizable and having way more lines, and so he gets my vote with that nightmarish and scorching voice, with Lee as a close second.

Voting for Christopher Lee. I just love his voice and yes, it stunk that he didn't get more lines in that movie. Such a waste.

Roger Jackson does sound really good and rather menacing. He's a close second.

I think it's really funny that Mr. T voiced the Jabberwocky and the character was even made to resemble him what with the jewelry and mohawk.

OK, Keith Hampshire seems to be playing a good version of the character, yet it's still pretty bland.

Christopher Lee is The Jabberwock with his awesome, powerful voice. Shame he didn't have more lines though.

Roger is a really close 2nd as he too has a powerful, threatening voice.

Keith is just boring & tired sounding.

Mr. T is the weakest because he's not acting evil & scary, just a creature trying to act tough is all I hear.

Such a tough choice as I love Christopher Lee, but Roger L Jackson sounds so deliciously evil...

If he appears in Once Upon A Time In Wonderland I wonder who they'll use. Looks like Keith David is not an option since he's the Cheshire Cat.

Christopher Lee was HORRENDOUSLY underused in that movie. If you have such an epic voice, give him more lines!

I'd say both he and Roger Jackson are the best voices for this creature.

@Galactic_Cyrus That was the original idea, give the Jabberwock more dialogue. Only problem: producers cut off Burton's work time by two years. It was a miracle that there was a movie at all.

I find Mr T and Keith Hampshire to be a little boring, so I'm going to comment on Christopher Lee and Roger Jackson.

Christopher Lee's voice definitely lives up to the Jabberwock's reputation, his voice is powerful but still holds a lot of age to it, fitting for the creature.

Roger Jackson is also fantastic, he sounds a lot darker and evil. I especially like the Mojo Jojo-esque snarl he adds to some of his lines, it sounds really wicked.

Overall, I have my problems with each of them. I find Roger Jackson's voice to be a little too quiet, I think sounding this deep might have been a bit of a strain for him and it kept him from sounding very lively. Christopher Lee's voice is a little stronger, but really like how dark and malevolent RJ sounds.

Overall, I'm going with Roger Jackson. That malevolence and snarl just sounds awesome to me, but they're both good.

Christopher Lee is freaking incredible as the Jabberwock. Roger is pretty good, but Keith is the worst here. But Mr. T is funny and pretty decent for the Jabberwock.

Going to go with Christopher Lee here, though Roger Jackson is a VERY close second, Mr. T is really funny though...and Keith Hampshire? Let's just say he clearly has the weakest performance. I mean..."Stan"? Really?
