White Rabbit

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

The White Rabbit is a bipedal, waistcoat-clad lagomorph established early on to have poor time management skills, despite possessing a pocketwatch at all times. He is the one who indirectly leads Alice to Wonderland, as his presence in the real world triggers Alice's natural curiosity and lures her into the rabbit hole that serves as an entrance to Wonderland. He is unrelentingly sycophantic towards his superiors, particularly his master, the Queen of Hearts.

Andrew is okay, but considering the rabbit's appearance here, I was slightly disappointed. I thought his voice would be a little more, shall we say, compelling. Michael is fairly good, but once again there's more to the character's appearance than to his voice. Keith is so so. Perhaps this partly due to the fact that the white rabbit doesn't work as well when depicted as a senior citizen. Howard's vocal performance I quite like. It's a unique and different type of voice for the rabbit. Corey and Jeff both do worthy imitations of Bill's version, but I guess I like Jeff slightly better. It's almost a tie between Bill and Richard. Both of their voices really hit the spot. Bill goes a little crazier when remarking on how late he is, but to some that's not necessarily better for the character. It's one or the other. I can't pick a definitive winner here.

There are some other animated white rabbits who should be added here as well. There's Arthur Q. Bryan (best known as Elmer Fudd) whose radio performance was put to animation in 2010, Keith Scott from the Burbank Films version, and the actor who voiced him in the "Festival of Family Classics" version, if we're ever able to find out who that is.

Same thing as the Cheshire Cat. Each actor is a different interpretation of the character so I won't judge too much.

Overall Bill Thompson shines in this role. He has a distinct voice that is very fitting and memorable for the White Rabbit making him sound like an worrying and urgent little bunny.

Both Corey Burton and Jeff Bennett are decent successors to Bill, especially Jeff who's really good at imitating him. Still can't come close to what Bill established though.

For the 2010 version Michael Sheen sounds good too. The accent fits well and its fitting for this version of the character. Nothing more to be said.

I might have watched the 1999 version a LONG time ago but I'm not sure if it was the right one. Either way Richard Coombs is pretty good also. I like his more than Michael's as it sounds more anxious and worrisome which is what the White Rabbit is more like.

The others do their part well and get the job done.

Bill Thompson is just a lot of fun. He's just so quirky and energetic, and you can tell he's having a ball in the role.

Corey Burton is also tons of fun. He channels Thompson perfectly while also adding a bit of his own.

Jeff Bennett, like Burton, seems to be trying to channel Thompson while also making the role his own. Honestly, both Burton and Bennett do a good job replacing Thompson.

Michael Sheen does sound pretty quirky and fun. He's more subdued than the previous performers, but he still seems to be enjoying himself.

Howard Morris is pretty good too. He has a different type of energy compared to Thompson, but he's still fitting for the character.

Keith Knight and Richard Coombs sound really good too.

Andrew Chaikin is decent, but nothing special.

Bill Thompson is hands down the best at voicing the White Rabbit.

Jeff is 2nd while Corey is 3rd. Both do good impressions of Bill but Jeff is better at it.

Michael, Andrew & Richard are all average.

Howard is a bit over the top with the voice.

Keith is a bit gruff and too old sounding, he's the weakest VA here.

Bill Thompson. And as always, Jeff Bennett is the better Thompson imitator than Corey Burton.

To me, this is Bill Thompson's most iconic role (aside from Mr. Smee in Peter Pan) & since he was the one that started it all, it's only natural that he'd receive my vote.

As for his best successor? For me, it's tied between Jeff Bennett & Corey Burton!

Bill Thompson is my favorite, though Corey Burton and Jeff Bennett did uncanny impersonations.

@RabidSonicFan I personally think Bennett is much better at imitating Thompson's voice than Burton is. This goes for him as Mr. Smee too. Burton gets points for trying, but his take sounds too high.

Bill Thompson gets my vote but Corey Burton's spot-on performance is nice too

While I love Bill Thompson's voice (and Corey Burton's impressive imitation), I like the gentler voice of Richard Coombs more.
