Hannah Barbera Voice Compares

Voice Compare » Batman » Scarecrow

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Scarecrow with sound clips and images.
(Note: While Jeff Bennett did voice Scarecrow in the episode "Over the Edge" Scarecrow did not actually have any lines in that episode as Jeff only did an evil laugh.)

Scarecrow is one of Batman's various enemies and has been in the Batman comics since the 3rd issue of Worlds Finest Comics that came out in the Fall of 1941. Scarecrow was formerly known as Jonathan Crane whom was quite fixated on fear due to his terrible childhood and was once a physician at Arkham Asylum until he was fired for testing his fear gas on his patients. Soon afterwards Jonathan Crane became the Scarecrow in which unlike most of Batman's Rogues Gallery his physical capabilities are lacking but is still very dangerous on how he more goes for psychological damage with his fear gas.

Today on the Batman VC section we have a big VC for this Fear gas loving fiend from Gothan... THE SCARECROW! The Scarecrow has a rather large VC here so I will keep this brief by saying that I am not sure who to pick as there is plenty of quality material here. The weakest of the Scarecrow voices here would probably be Ted Knight's work as Scarecrow here as I suppose its kind of okay by its own merits but seems rather generic compared to the others. Cillian Murphy and Don Messick were okay though (in retrospection Don's voice for the role wasn't bad but its a shame that Super Friends series didn't give him much material to work with.) However I was pleasantly surprised with Andre Stojka (whom is easily the best of the "Old" Scarecrow voices) and Dee Bradley Baker though.) But still most of these guys did some awesome work for Scarecrow in their own way.

I gotta go with Dino Andrade. I found the Arkham Asylum version of the character to be interesting. He comes off as quite wimpy compared to the other super villains, but under the fear gas, he becomes really, really menacing.

Bit late to the party, but I'll be voting for Dino Andrade. Most of the other performances are pretty solid as well. Dee Bradley Baker's especially.

I have seen gameplay of Arkham Knight & John Noble as Scarecrow is awesome.

10.Cillian Murphy: He sounds too normal, too calm and too human.
9.Ted Knight: He's more fit to voice Joker over Scarecrow in my opinion.
8.Don Messick: Sounds a bit creepy, but also really childish, which makes it less creepy, therefore a not very good voice for Scarecrow.
7.Corey Burton: Burton... Why the hell aren't you trying here?
6.Andre Stojka: Not a very fitting one, but still good voice for the Batman villain.
5.Christopher S Field: Kinda corny but still alright for Scarecrow.
4.Jeffrey Combs: Not a very interesting voice. Creepy, but also really boring.
3.Dee Bradley Baker: Pretty fitting overall, and it suits him even if this is a parody of the character.
2.Dino Andrade: An upgraded version of Combs' performance.
1.Henry Polic II: Such an awesome voice. Given how Scarecrow was portrayed in that series, this voice commands more respect, and the appearance gives enough spooks to anyone.

I haven't even played the game, and I know that John Noble is going to be my vote. Even just listening to the guy in casual interviews creeps me out. The dude just naturally has a creepy tone in his voice. But it's also intelligent, and suave. It's the perfect Scarecrow voice.

In a close second place is Jeffery Combs, it's a bit more intelligent than creepy. If it wasn't for the echo sound they added in post, it probably wouldn't have been as scary. Where-as John Noble doesn't need any post production work done to naturally sound scary.

I think Cillian Murphy is a fantastic actor and I loved his take on Crane, but I don't think it translated as well to voice over. Jeffrey Combs has a similar portrayal but works better with the medium, so my votes goes to him.

The rest of them sound either "cartoon crazy" or demonic, which doesn't mesh with how I see Crane's character –- as an emotionally detached intellectual who took his research way too far.

1. Currently Unknown (John Noble?): Yeah, he's not listed here at the moment. Yet, just going off of the Arkham Knight trailers alone I can already place this guy as my favorite. The way he delivered his "How many more bones will you crush? How many lives will you destroy in pursuit of what you call justice?" speech was absolutely perfect, and I love how his voice is equal parts gravely, menacing, raspy, and intellectual. I can tell that when Arkham Knight releases, I'm going to love this guy.

2. Dino Andrade: Out of the many great performances put on in the Arkham series, Dino's is among my favorites from Asylum. His slimy, high pitched voice never fails to send shivers down my spine, and the added filter enhances the creepy factor rather than takes away from it. He did good at making Scarecrow a fearsome adversary, and while I do like John Noble(?) even better, I'm still a bit sad that Dino isn't reprising his role.

3. Dee Bradley Baker: Dee's is another fantastic take, I can see him doing fantastic as Scarecrow in a more serious adaptation since his voice is fantastically quiet yet fearsome.

4. Corey Burton: The effects added to his voice make him a bit hard to understand at times, but I like it nonetheless, mainly because this is the way I picture Scarecrow sounding whenever the person listening to him is under the influence of fear gas. The demonic reverberation added to his hoarse and rough voice make him sound absolutely nightmarish.

5. Cillian Murphy: He's not my favorite take on Jonathon Crane, but Cillian was good nonetheless. I like that he has more of a sleazy, slimy tone that is laced with a hint of subdued menace, it's very fitting for the movie's amoral scumbag version of the Scarecrow.

6. Henry Pollic II: I'm not too big on either him or Combs, but I do prefer him at the end of the day. I don't know if I consider him scary, but the deep voice and arrogant tone are pretty fun to listen to. His performance isn't one of the DCAU's best, but it's still a good one regardless.

7. Christopher S. Field: His delivery sounds a bit off, but I feel that he has a ton of potential to sound great. His tone while inconsistent does sound genuinely intimidating at times, and the gruffness of his tone reminds me almost of a slasher movie villain.

8. Don Messick: I kind of wish that Don had more material, because his Scarecrow I feel is actually pretty decent for an earlier adaptation. Not that it's perfect mind you, but I like that whispery tone he used.

9. Jeffery Combs: I hate to say it, but I agree with the user who finds Jeffery incredibly overrated. He sounds a bit creepy during the clip used on this site, but outside of a few lines he sounds absolutely boring and lifeless.

10. Ted Knight and Andre Stojka: I feel Andre edges Ted out, but neither are all that good. Especially Ted who sounds incredibly screechy and way too high pitched.

I personally want to hear Robert Englund take on the role some day. It's a bit of an easy casting choice to make, but he'd make it suitably creepy and sinister.

So, a couple of months ago I finally watched the episode of TNBA with Jeffrey Combs in it... and to be honest, I found him incredibly dry and boring. I don't see how he's so scary, AT ALL. The only scene in the entire episode where I thought he sounded kinda creepy and intimidating was the part in this clip, and even then, it didn't do much for me. In the other scenes where he wasn't in a position of power over Batman and trying to psychologically toy with him he sounded even more bland. When Robin and Batman were foiling his plans and he needed to express more desperation and emotion... he fell flat. His take was a real downgrade in comparison to Henry Polic II, IMO. Henry wasn't very scary, but at least his performance was passionate and emotive and helped make Scarecrow an interesting character.

Sorry, I hope I don't sound like a jerk. I loved Jeffrey as Ratchet and Question, and I think he could have been a lot better if the character hadn't been so stinking bland in that episode, but I had to say something after watching his whole performance.

1: Dino Andrade- Holy hell was this guy just absolutely terrifying in every way. The effects on his voice in the dream sequences really hammer home the point that you're in an insane fantasy, and his true natural voice for the character sounds like he's truly enjoying his work, albeit still capturing Crane's wimpy persona under the surface. Without a doubt the best voice actor to come out of the Arkham series, it's a shame he won't be returning to the role.
2-: Corey Burton: I'm kinda conflicted ranking him above Jeffrey Combs, but in the end, he captures the insanity and frightening persona of the character a little more.
3-: Jeffrey Combs: A very spooky version of the character he pulled off well that goes perfectly with the new design. Very chilling and subdued while still making Crane sound like he's the one in control. So yes, a very intimidating voice for the role.
4-: Henry Polic: A fine take on the character that works well. Over confident yet wimpy sounding, and I found the British accent to be a nice touch that worked well.
5-: Cillian Murphy: The effects are cool, and while I enjoy him for what little screen time he had in the films, the guy just sounds too young to make it entirely believable.
6-: Dee Bradley Baker: He plays Scarecrow more tongue in cheek, but he works well for his version. I think he could do even better in a more serious portrayal.
7: Christopher S Field: Not bad in the slightest, and he sounds fitting enough. I just think the delivery was a little off, and he didn't capture the intimidating nature enough.
8-: Don Messick: His take hasn't aged well, but I still sense that he could've done a pretty bang up job with that whispery voice, if he deepened up a bit.
9-: Ted Knight and Andre Stojka: Don't fit the role in the slightest.

Well then, it appears that Dino Andrade has been recasted for Batman: Arkham Knight, going by the E3 footage. It's a real shame, as I thought he was a perfect fit, but the new VA isn't bad. The significantly deeper voice compared to Dino's does fit the new design well, and while I find the change jarring, I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually.

I like Jeffrey Combs the best. His voice is so very eerie and I love the design Scarecrow had in that series. It was suitability eerie for the character and the voice. Dino sounds pretty good, but I've never played the game so my knowledge is limited.

Henry Polic II was pretty good and I think he sounds like Rene Auberjonois. Rewatching that series on the Hub I thought it was Rene.

I would like to hear Corey Burton take a crack at him without the effects added.

You know there's one person I think would be both fitting as Johnathan Cranes normal voice, and a great scarecrow.

I know this would be a bit weird since he usually on guest stars on other Batman shows since he is most well known as a certain Clown, but I think Mark Hamill would be a pitch perfect Scarecrow when I think about it.

He has the right calm yet sinister tone which could fit Johnathan when he talks normally (Muska is a great example of this), and we all know he can do great creepy, and raspy voices which would fit the scarecrow just perfectly.

Ted Knight sounds much more like he should've been the Joker using a voice like this than the Scarecrow. I mean it's a good voice, it's just completely unfitting for Scarecrow. 3/10 for a scarecrow voice, but a 6 out of 10 for being different.

Don sounds very fitting here but he has barely anything to go off of here which is very sad because his high pitched kind of sound could work very well if given more material. 6/10

Andre sounds...okay, it's nothing spectacular but I just think it sounds bizarre and, some of his delivery does feel a bit awkward. 4.5/10

Henry works extremely well with the role here, and sounds creepy, while it sounds weird hearing the scarecrow that deep it oddly works and didn't come off as a generic thug which I do like. RIP 7.5/10

Cilian sounds fantastic here, as he was in the film as well, though I do wish he was able to use this voice more in the film, but I'm happy to see him use it here, and is given a decent amount of dialogue. 7/10

Jeffrey...oh GOD Jeffrey how I love thee. Jeffrey is not only extremely fitting in the role, but is downright CHILLING. The voice matches the design perfectly, and is hands down one of Jeffry's best performances, if not his best. 9.5/10

Corey is bit too heavily vocally effected, and is a bit hard to understand at points, but he does sound good, but a bit too demonic with all those effects. and is it me or at a couple lines does he sounds like Dwight Schultz? 7.5/10

Dee was a natural choice for Scarecrow in Brave and the Bold, and he works very well with the role, being much more quiet and reserved in the role, but the rasp he adds to the role works very well, and the vocal effects add this fantastic creep factor to the performance. 8.5/10

Dino...oh Dino...I never understood. I really never did. this is a role that everyone adores in the Arkham games, but to be honest, is probably one the most overrated supervillain performance I've ever seen. I never thought it sounded that fitting, it sounds way too young, the vocal effects don't sound all that good, and to be honest, from playing AA, he always sounded really bored in his portrayal. 5/10

Christopher sounds decent at first, but the further he goes, it starts to sound a bit awkward. He starts slwoly adding this rasp to his voice, which to be honest sounds a bit odd in general, not really what I picture when I see the scarecrow. It's a better performance than many of the other DCUO performances, but that's not saying much. 6/10

Ted Knight: It's as if someone took the Joker's voice and gave it to the Scarecrow. Not a very good combination.

Don Messick: though I like Don Messick as a voice actor, I'm not a fan of his Scarecrow voice. I don't know, it made him sound a bit like a witch.

Andre Stojka: Meh..

Henry Polic II: A pretty good performance, I like the maniacal feel he gives to it.

Cillian Murphy: Like the movie Batman Begins, Cillian gives a very good performance as the Scarecrow.

Jeffrey Combs: Just chilling...

Corey Burton: The vocal effects were a bit distracting, but it's still a good effort nonetheless.

Dee Bradley baker: I'm normally not a fan of some of the voices in Brave and the Bold (namely Batman's and the Joker's) but Dee made the Scarecrow one of the best performances in that show.

Dino Andrade: HO-LY SH*T! After playing Arkham Asylum's Scarecrow levels, I was blown away by Dino's performance. How he delivered his lines were perfect, the voice was perfect, the performance was just plain perfect! We have a winner!

I don't like how dry and nonchalant Jeffrey Combs sounded. Sometimes sounding nonchalant and dry works, but I don't think it does with this character and that voice. Dee Bradley Baker worked well too, my second favorite. However, I am indeed going with Dino Andrade.

I would like to see him reprise the role in the next Arkham game. I like how arrogant yet small he sounds in the interview tapes and how creepy he sounds when he's scarecrow and they throw the filters on.

I don't think he's perfect, at least not yet, but he is my favorite for the time being.

1. Dino Andrade - After hearing his performance in AA, I must say he did a very good job: his Scarecrow really crept me out especially with the voice modulator, and even sounded threatening too at some points.

2. Jeffery Combs - An interesting take, but very effective: sounds creepy and unpredictable. The reason he isn't my number one is because he sounds a little too soft and quiet making him seem less threatening as a villain.

3. Corey Burton - Granted of course it was a little too modulated but it still had a creepy feel to it, it still fits though.

4. Cillian Murphy - Another interesting take, he really nails that maniacal and threatening side of Scarecrow which is what he needs IMO.

Others I'm afraid don't fit the bill for Scarecrow personally.

1 . Dino Andrade - Soft , creepy , raspy and yet wimpy . The perfect blend of Jeffrey and Cillian`s equally brilliant performances .
2 . Jeffrey Combs - Raspy , creepy , intellectual . The only real complaint I have is he sometimes spoke almost too softly to hear .
3 . Cillian Murphy - Brilliant , subdued and complex as Crane and a total maniac as Scarecrow . Of course , you can occasionally hear Cillian`s Irish origins subtly slip through when he emotes and his American accent sounds more New York ( Specifically Christopher Walken-style Queens ) than New England but as he`s portraying a Nolanized reimagining of Crane he may be a native Gothamite in this version so I`d hardly count that against him .
4 . Corey Burton - Basically Cillian`s performance in The Film with more of a New England/Mid-Western accent . Impressive if a bit overly modulated .
5 . Dee Bradley Baker - Creepy , raspy . Truly one of BTAB`s stand-out performances .
6 . Henry Polic II - Underrated performance , IMHO . His Crane was creepy when he needed to be while not forgetting what a coward at heart the man was . He also gave a very convincing New England intellectual accent .
7 . Christopher S. Feild - Pretty damn creepy if average overall .
8 . Andre Stojka - Probably the best of the older Scarecrow performances and the first to actually sound creepy rather than campy .
9 . Don Messick - Not bad though his attempt to sound creepy comes off as more campy . Still a valiant effort . But meh , I`ve seen better .
10 . Ted Knight - Okay , I know Crane`s supposed to be from New England and all but really ?

Jeffrey Combs is pretty much the perfect Scarecrow although it largely depends on how Scarecrow is being portrayed. If you want a genuinely creepy Scarecrow, Combs all the way. Subtle, not forced, but chilling. However if you want Scarecrow to be slightly ridiculous but obviously educated then I'd go with Henry Polic II.

I'm giving this one to Jeffery Combs as I felt the raspy whisper was pretty creepy. That said, Dino Andrade, Henry Polic II, Corey Burton, Dee Bradley Baker, and Cillian Murphy were good, too.

Ted Knight - ...
Don Messick - He's okay, I guess. But he's still definitely much better than... THAT...
Andre Stojka - I agree, he's definitely best of the classic voices. It is a bit high, but it's not bad.
Henry Polic II - Finally a deeper voice. And he does a great job too. Now's when we're getting to the good stuff...
Cillian Murphy - Very nice, especially for a movie-liscensed game.
Jeffrey Combs - I know most everybody likes him, but to me, it sounded more like he was just speaking quietly rather than being scary.
Corey Burton - HOLY CRAP THAT IS SCARY. Really good!
Dee Bradley Baker - Like poke said, this is a pleasant surprise. It's hard to imagine Dee doing a menacing voice... but here we are. XD
Dino Andrade - He does a great job of sounding both scary and meek when he needs to. Probably my favorite out of them.
Christopher S. Field - Eh...

I'd say Jeffrey Coombs. His voice reminds us that despite the Scarecrow's frightening appearance, he's still a human behind the mask. That's important to remember.

Scarecrow is number three on my top 5 favorite Batman villains

Ted Knight's version was annoying, way too high for my taste.
Messick was pretty generic just nothing outstanding about it.
Stojka was, like what Pokejedservo said, best of the golden age voices. Is still a little high but not too high I guess.
I grew up with Henry Polic's version of Scarecrow and he does do a very good job. He gives Scarecrow a sinister and creepy sound to it and can easily show off his cowardly side.
Normally actors in video games are pretty bad (Toby from SPiderman is a good example) so I was very surpirzed with Murphy's performance. A good creepy voice that fits the character very well.
Although I like Scarecrow's design in Gothan Knights I thought Combs wasn't so perfect in the role. Don't get me wrong, he does a good sinister and intellgent voice but not all that creepy. I just think he could have been a little better.
I know it wasn't 100% Burton on the voice but wow was it scarey. I know it was Batman under his scare gas so it was suppose to sound disfigured but still a nice creepy voice.
Now I know Dee Bradley Baker is a man of many voices but damn was this unexpected. Creepy and a nice touch of voice modulator (or whatever it's called). A nice unexpected change for Baker.
Dino Andrade is the winner. Terrorfying, sinister, good amount of voice modulator, can go to a cowardly and sound threatening. A great example of the voice work in the game.
Christopher S Field is...well pretty generic. Nothing really standing out in it. However his delivery of the lines are outstanding, so he gets a pass just for that.
So my ranking is
1. Dino Andrade
2. Cillian Murphy
3. Henry Polic
4. Corey Burton
5. Dee Baker

Jeffery Combs, it's a shame Scarecrow didn't appear more in that series/season

I'm not a big fan of the Batman Begins film, and I'm not usually a sucker for big screen actors performances in video games, but I think Cillian Murphy gives such a unique sound to the Scarecrow. That makes him the first batman character voice that, in my eyes, surpasses the Batman: TAS voice.

Dino Andrade for me. Managed to sound both like the wimp Crane is, and the creepiness he wants to emit as the Scarecrow. Cillian Murphy in second.
