Yeah I don't think anyone's the winner here though I'd say Rob Paulsen's the more bearable one to listen to.

Brian Silva's good but feels toned down at times.

Whoever did him in Bubsy 4 (possibly Vic Mignogna) does sound a bit like Brian but sounds so obnoxious and rather annoying at times

and Lani Minella.... oh dear lord Lani, I feel so sorry for her. Doing that voice must have been like a buzzsaw in her throat because she was destroyed by some awful voice direction and some of the worst content to ever be graced with. It was the unfortunate tip of the already burning dumpster fire that was Bubsy 3D.

Seems like everyone who voiced the character hated the experience.

Now we just need to know how Brian Silva felt.

@Metabad I would be surprised if he is the only one who didn't hate voicing him. Now I wonder how Vic Mignogna felt about voicing him.

I think I'm going to give this to Vic when he joins the compare. Not because he's better than everyone else here but because I don't think Rob Paulsen wants the honor of being 'the best Bubsy voice'.

Brian Silva is decent enough, but it feels a bit toned down. In this case, it works since he isn't excessively talking. It's really the same problem with Martinet as Mario. He's a classic and basically IS Mario, but give him full sentences and it's baaaaad.

Rob Paulsen as Bubsy does well enough with the role (especially since he refuses to acknowledge the role at all). He gives Bubsy the ol' Paulsen charm with the script working against him, and makes him at least kind of endearing rather than annoying like..

Lani Minella. By god, I feel so bad for her. The director wanted this voice, the script writers gave her garbage, and all in all it makes Bubsy sound horrible and screechy.

Bubsy 4's actor (Vic Mignogna?) sounds like what Brian Silva did, but he sounds especially obnoxious and flat compared to Rob, and makes him sound like a complete manchild.

Brian Silva and Rob Paulsen both sound good in the roles, I don't know which one I like more.

I must be in the minority here, but I don't find Lani Minellas take on Bubsy to be annoying (I personally find it impossible to be annoyed by any voice), I just find her take to be weird. I'm just wondering why Bubsy sounds like a kid now, when Brian and Rob already made him sound like an adult. So Lani hated voicing him and hated doing what the voice director told her to make him sound like, but other than a downgrade from an adult voice to a kid voice, it doesn't bother me.

Rob Paulson is my favorite. Brain was OK I guess but Lani? Dear god this is exactly why she should stick with mature and seductive older women. I don't think I've ever heard such an annoying voice in my life...
said at 9:16 PM on Wed Nov 15 2017
I think Rob Paulson is the best personally. Brian's good for what the game was. Lani is not good at all.

@Spideyseth In a conversation I had with Lani Minella, she hated voicing Bubsy. The voice director told her to make that voice when voicing Bubsy.
said at 4:22 PM on Tue Jan 2 2018
@Shaun Ince Really? That does explain a lot. I can only imagine how painful it must have been to make that voice. I wouldn't blame her if she wants to forget about him entirely.

@Soul-dragon She was very vocal about her hate for Bubsy. Infact she ends up mocking that game & her performance. Which I don't blame her for doing.
said at 6:34 PM on Tue Jan 2 2018
@Shaun Ince That's to perfect. Yeah I definitely can't blame her for it. Busby was definitely a huge stain on her career.

I think I know a good voice actor for Bubsy. His name is Duct Tape.

But in all seriousness I'll go with the original Brian Silva. While his one liners can get obnoxious he has the most tolerable and enjoyable (in a "so bad its good" kind of way) voice for Bubsy. It sounds so fitting for a hyperactive bobcat.

Rob Paulsen would've had my vote if it weren't for the fact that his character is written so unlikeable and annoying. Especially the repeated dialogue of "What could possibly go wrong?!".

Lani Minella is just so bad its not even funny. The voice is unfitting and she has the worst dialogue of the Bubsys.

New Bubsy game.

And what I believe is a new voice actor.
Any guesses who it is?

@HyperVoiceActing I think it sounds like a staff member.
said at 8:54 AM on Sun Jun 11 2017
@Ghosty404 - Well for a staff member it's pretty good.

Well, it's fitting for the character anyway

@HyperVoiceActing I watched the trailer and the voice sounds a lot like Brian Drummond. Just what I think though.

Ugh... I just can't vote for either one of these VAs, I'm sorry. Rob Paulsen is definitely a seasoned voice actor and he is one of my favorite VAs, but even he couldn't turn in a good performance for this character. The take is obnoxious and unfunny, which I can't point fingers at Paulsen for, but rather that's what this bobcat is in a nutshell. Rob Paulsen has since went on to consider this role an old shame, and understandably so. Lani Minella is somebody I find to be a rather versatile actress as well as pretty underappreciated within the industry, though her rendition isn't much better than Rob's; if anything, Minella's is even *worse*. The delivery is insufferable and the voice itself somehow makes Fran Drescher sound like Kate Bush by comparison. Lastly there's Brian Silva... who's actually relatively decent. While still nerve-wrecking, Silva is less infuriating to hear overall, not that that's saying a whole lot.

I'm leaning towards Brian Silva in the end for this one. "What could possibly go wrong?" Get the net!

@HienFan and when you asked "what could possibly go wrong?" for Lani, well let's just say that your playing the worst game of all time (aside from conker's bad fur day) about a cat that is stuck in space and has to find all of his rocket pieces to get out of the planet, if he doesn't find them he's still stuck and if he finds them he goes to the prehistoric times and his goice gets younger every game so let's just say that EVERYTHING CAN GO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

@austinslashlavaboy Conker's Bad Fur Day is a mile better than that travesty.

@austinslashlavaboy I really hope you did not just call Conker the worst game of all time.

@SpongeBat1 I don't have the game but it looks awful and that line was just a poke at his catchphrase
said at 8:30 PM on Wed Mar 19 2014
@NCZ I did, but you don't have to agree with me. if you like it, that's fine. it does have some positives, but I would rather play superman 64, Big Rigs, ET Atari, or even Sonic '06 than Conker (YES I WENT THERE!)
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:06 PM on Wed Mar 19 2014
@austinslashlavaboy The thing is, all of those games are objectively terrible. Big Rigs and Sonic '06 are unplayable due to how glitchy they are. Superman 64 has shoddy controls, poor draw distance, glitches abound, and is put together extremely sloppily. Without exaggeration, the E.T. game was so terrible that it actually killed the video game industry.

From a technical level, Conker is a very competently-made, functional game. In fact, it received acclaim for its graphical capabilities, where its innovative use of textures made it pop on the aging N64 hardware. Opinions are one thing and you're free to dislike it on a subjective level, the humour's not for everyone, but objectively speaking, there's no way it's anywhere near the worst game ever.

Also thank you for inadvertently reminding me that the Angry Video Game Nerd just released a review of Big Rigs that I need to check out.

@NCZ I like Sonic 2006 haw haw..
said at 12:51 AM on Sat Jul 26 2014
@NCZ On a note isn't Austin one of the two guys ragging about every Sonic Adventure voice? Does he really get what I'm saying though I already said HIS Donatello so I know perfectly well Rob did voice him

But on Bubsy gees I know the third game is bad from just watching it but I just like to say that line to mock Bubsy(especially that weird voice Lani gave) for overabusing that line from the videos I saw
said at 8:57 AM on Sun Jul 10 2016
@HienFan You're right, ASLB was one of the two guys bashing every SA voice (the other one being Adjeras). However, I wasn't present when they were doing that. And, man, were they negative on Scott Dreier and David Humphrey. I also remember seeing Adjeras giving too much flak to Jennifer Douillard (ugh). I mean, why do they have to be so blind about things?
said at 9:20 AM on Thu Jan 23 2014
And my comment was unreasonable so that's why it got deleted but everything in there was true. True I tell ya, true.

Anyway I don't like Bubsy's voice but a friend forced me into voting for this one. I went for Rob since he was sorta decent.
said at 3:49 PM on Thu Aug 7 2014
@Ross123 One thing I can say of Rob he can make unlikable characters sound at least salvageable I only saw a few minutes of the toon before I decided to throw the bucket and close the tab, it's just that bad
said at 5:50 AM on Sat Aug 9 2014
@HienFan I haven't seen the cartoon or played any of the Bubsy games but I've seen reviews on them that say they're best avoided.
said at 6:01 AM on Sat Aug 9 2014
@Ross123 Especially 3(the one Lani is from) that voice alone is just a tiny tip of a very slippery trainwreck
said at 6:17 AM on Sat Aug 9 2014
@HienFan My question is why did the developers let Lani use that voice? It's really really annoying for a fact. Did they not think that people would get a splitting headache from hearing it constantly.

From the reviews I've seen, Bubsy in Bubsy 3D never shuts up. But it only makes sense for the voice to be awful as the rest of the game is the same.
said at 6:21 AM on Sat Aug 9 2014
@Ross123 Mock voice: Everyone loves high pitched voices of course what could possibly go wrong?

Joke over I seen this sick piece on Youtube before Bubsy voice and having tank yet also loose control(tank controls are suppose to make sure your character doesn't slip everywhere yet this fail in that part) is enough for me to decided to blacklist the game and I have a huge list of PS1 games I want to try
said at 6:27 AM on Sat Aug 9 2014
@HienFan A friend of mine wants to try the game. I warned him not to but he still wants to. Can't say I didn't warn him, I'll laugh when he comes out furious or something along those lines.
said at 7:10 AM on Sat Apr 11 2015
@Ross123 I loooove how someone thought I played the Bubsy series just because I commented my opinion, I mean how hard it is to know how he sound like just from listening to these clips?

I should mention Rob's clip sounds very similar to his Donatello role, except Donatello doesn't sound as overly sneering as this
said at 9:49 AM on Mon Apr 13 2015
@HienFan I read the comment and I think you misread it. When some1 uses the term "let's just say" it means something along the lines of imagine.

So he was technically saying, "Well let's just imagine that your playing the worst game of all time (aside from conker's bad fur day) about a cat that is stuck in space and has to find all of his rocket pieces to get out of the planet, if he doesn't find them he's still stuck and if he finds them he goes to the prehistoric times and his goice gets younger every game so let's just say that EVERYTHING CAN GO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!"

Hope I made that clear for you.

As for Rob's Bubsy sounding like his Donatello, I respectfully disagree as it's miles ahead in terms of quality.
said at 9:51 AM on Mon Apr 13 2015
@HienFan And I should have deleted the Conker's Bad Fur Day part as it most certainly isn't true.
said at 9:53 PM on Mon Apr 13 2015
@Ross123 Well it was nasally for both but yes Donatello is a million times better

I know what he means, but I think he misread my line I was using it as a sarcasm when I put her as worst Bubsy as in 'What could go wrong with a voice like that?' not that 'How bad is that voice anyway?'
said at 1:42 AM on Tue Apr 14 2015
@Ross123 One thing for sure Bubsy caused- it caused the end of most of these low quality 'edgy' mascots and that is his only good thing
said at 1:14 PM on Wed Apr 15 2015
@HienFan Oh sorry, I thought for a second you misread his comment but it turns out he misread yours. I'm surprised he didn't pick up on "What could possibly go wrong?" being sarcasm.

Aside from Nintendo & Sega, I don't think anyone really uses mascots in the Gaming industry anymore.

But you are right about there being no more low quality mascots though other than that, Bubsy has nothing redeemable.
said at 9:49 PM on Wed Apr 15 2015
@Ross123 Mascots: Oh hi Capcom with Ryu of Street Fighter fame and Namco's Pacman
said at 12:18 PM on Mon Apr 20 2015
@HienFan Forgot about those 2. Mainly because Capcom is as good as dead at this point since they have no idea what they're doing anymore.

And Namco is a company I rarely hear about. But yeah I was wrong, there a still a few game companies using mascots.

Rob Paulsen's my favorite, though Brian Silva is a close second. He has a Daffy/Plucky thing going on.

With Lani, her delivery is OK and certainly wacky enough, but it's pretty obvious it's a woman doing a guy's voice and it just doesn't work.
