EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Batman VC section we have a little something for this little lady here by the name of BABY DOLL! We will begin with the Batman Animated series in which she was voiced by Alison LaPlaca. One thing I liked about Alison's voice work for the role was that she did a cutesy higher voice for her "Baby Doll" voice and a more moderate toned voice for her actual voice. Alison's performance did suit the role on how Baby Doll is lets just say an Adult Child whom is having a hard time letting go of her past. (Or in other words a deconstruction of the idea of child characters "Never Growing Up".) So in other words Alison's work as Baby Doll is another fine example of the voice work in the show on how the show definitely knew how to make a sympathetic villain.
Baby Doll was a one-episode character in Batman the Animated and she was also a one-episode character in The New Batman Adventures and this time Laraine Newman gets to take over the role here. Unlike Alison, Laraine doesn't do so much of a voice shift as she voiced Baby Doll but it still works with Baby Doll's "Insane Womanchild" persona well enough. As for performance Laraine does a rather solid performance as while Laraine does play up how childish Baby Doll can be but the fact that Baby Doll is an adult in a child's body is not forgotten though. So in other words Laraine's performance for the role was very good and is one of her better VA performances. Overall I am going with a tie as both of these ladies did very well with the role here.
