Poil

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Poil with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Casper

Poil is Spooky's girlfriend in the Casper franchise. She is constantly swooning over him, but he usually fails to reciprocate the feelings.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Miriam Flynn was the first actress to voice Poil. Miriam's performance gives a nice sense of naivety to Poil. 

In the all-CG film, Casper's Haunted Christmas, Tabitha St. Germain takes over the role. Tabitha's performance still retains the innocence that Miriam gave the character, but I felt that she also endued Poil with a tough streak. 

This is a tough one. Both voice actresses give great performances, and neither one really trumps the other in any way. I think Miriam is going to edge out Tabitha just slightly on this one. 

Bonus Opinion: Who would I cast as Poil? I think that Kath Soucie would be a good choice, since her voice has that 'innocent lightness' to it.

Maybe I would cast Hynden Walch as Poil (Pearl). Just have her use the Harley Quinn voice she had in The Batman, it's totally fitting for the character.

As Poil appears in Casper's Haunted Christmas, doesn't she sound a little like Wendy O. Koopa as she appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3?

Tabitha is best. Heck, maybe she can voice Harley Quinn.

@VctrBnsn Perhaps, maybe if DC considering using Ocean for an upcoming cartoon she could get a chance too. And with how frequently L.A voice talent is used these days there's a better chance of a snowball surviving in hell then of that happening.

@LordofEvil96 They wouldn't do that for a cartoon probably, but maybe for some other project? A motion comic maybe.

@VctrBnsn Yeah, they did Batman: Black and White. But I'd like to see Ocean actually tackle a batman cartoon at some point.

@LordofEvil96 Ocean only dubs foreign material into English. They don't do original animation, even though the voice actors they use do (there are tons of studios in Vancouver). The general Vancouver talent pool does a pretty good job with Marvel properties, and Janyse Jaud was a good Harley Quinn in Batman B&W, I agree that Tabitha St. Germain would be good casting.

@LordofEvil96 Wait a minute, DC used Ocean for Krypto the Super Dog.

@VctrBnsn Exactly. So why they haven't used them at other points is beyond me.

@VctrBnsn No, that was Voicebox Productions, which is also based in Vancouver.

Definitely Tabitha. Her voice seemed to fit the character much better, and her accent was more consistent. Miriam wasn't bad though.

@PurpleWarrior13 As for who I would cast as Poil, I think Tara Strong would be good casting, same with Kath Soucie. Rebecca Forstadt could also work in an anime version. :P

Sorry for triple posting, but now that I think about it, Candi Milo could be a good Poil too!

I like Tabitha, the slight New York accent and the tough yet naive is just more fitting to me.

I prefer Tabitha most because I think she has that more annoying voice and sounds much more like a kid.
