EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Batman VC section we have a little something for this portly gentleman whom is known as one of Gotham's sanest criminals (though that's only compared to most of the evil-doers there). Due to how enormous this VC is I shall be brief here as this is actually a hard one as a lot of these performances are actually pretty good. (I was even pleasantly surprised by Ted Knight and Lennie Weinrib's respective performances in which it was probably their best Batman Villain performances in their respective shows.) The weakest of the Penguin voices is probably Jeff Bennett though (but to be fair his performance was alright.) Well as for the performances that tried to make Penguin sound like a elegant gentleman I suppose I would go for Paul Williams' classic take on the role (though David Ogden Stiers is not too far off). Now as for the performances that seem to try to be more like the late great Burgess Meredith's work on the 60's Batman series I will actually go with David Jennison here. (I rather liked on how despite trying to sound like Burgress Meredith, David Jennison's performance actually makes the Penguin seem kind of menacing. However Tom Kenney is close behind in that regard as well since Tom's voice for role was very Burgess Meredith-inspired.) Overall I suppose I will go with Paul Williams and David Jennison the most but these performances for the most part did rather well.
