Big Bad Wolf

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Big Bad Wolf with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Disney

The Big Bad Wolf is a bipedal canine who seeks out swine as a source of nourishment. If his prey retreats to their living spaces, the Wolf will attempt to demolish the establishment by expelling an extraordinary amount of air. On occasion, the Wolf will disguise itself as an ovine in an attempt to lull his target into a false sense of security.

Both are on pretty equal level since they're very similar to their Pete voices.

Still my preferences go slightly towards Billy Bletcher. He makes the Wolf sound really intimidating and more like what a cartoon wolf would sound like.

Jim Cummings is good but a little disappointing. I find it way too recognisable to his Pete voice more than Billy.

Voiceactorfan1's spot on, but I think Billy Bletcher's performance is more intimidating for the Big Bad Wolf despite this.

The best Big Bad Wolf in english dubbed cartoons, anime and dessin anime isn't even on here but Mike Reynold's performence of the character on The Little Train a knockoff version by Harmony Gold has to be the best voice acter for him.

Scary: Had that.

Camp grunts when getting hurt to go with his camper looking wolf in that version: Had that.

Goofyness in standard non angry talking: Had that.

The film is a very low budget dub of Il Trenino and not a very good one with warpy mono sound but it's still clear to hear his decent performance of the wolf.

Not sure if it was the dub which had rubbish audio or the Kids Cartoon Collection tape of it and the MasterVision's better as I've only ever watched the InterVision/Sound KCC labal version and not their MasterVision but the wolf was a classic.

I like Jim better for whatever reason

Billy gets my vote since he has more range here.

Jim does a wonderful job as usual though.

Overall both of them fit the BBW pretty well as a bumbling cartoon villain.Im im a bit dissapointed that Jim just reused his Pete voice,when honestly a dozen or so of his other deep,gruff vocies would fit the wolf just fine,but i still find him quite good in the role

Billy makes the Wolf sound threatening AND funny, whereas Jim just sounds funny. I'm going with Billy here.

Billy Bletcher is definitely the best Big Bad Wolf voice. I think this is why Warner also had him voice the wolf featured in the 1944 Looney Tunes short "Little Red Riding Rabbit!"
As for Jim Cummings it sounds like a cross between his Pete and Yosemite Sam voices (obviously they chose Cummings, since he takes over most of Billy Bletcher's characters, along with Sterling Holloway and Paul Winchell's characters.)

No offense, but I actually like Jim Cummings' Big Bad Wolf.

I'm disapointed Jim went with his Pete voice. Especially since Pete was actually in the series. Jim could have been a lot better

@Music Meister Billy also used his Pete voice

I like Billy more. His Wolf actually sounds kind of scary.

I have to go with Billy on this one. Jim does succeed in making the Big Bad Wolf sound different than Pete, as did Billy, but I've got to go with the original on this one.

It's easy to see why Jim would be cast for the role in later years, as he did, after all, take over another role of Billy's, Pete. I'm having a hard time deciding who.

Billy Bletcher. Jim sounds like every character he's ever played.

@NCZ Wow. Way to diss a great voice actor's range.

@Galactic_Cyrus I know. Ugh. I was purely venting at the time because I was annoyed with some stuff and situations that were going on, so this in no way represents my actual opinion now. I take back pretty much everything I said about Jim Cummings around that time.

@NCZ What did you have against Cummings at the time?

said at 5:50 PM on Mon Sep 30 2013
@Galactic_Cyrus It was nothing against Cummings, really, and I have nothing but respect for him, but I was more irked with the way the additions of all the sound clips were handled, plus I had some personal things going on that didn't really help. I'll send the details in a PM.
