Both of them are classic and iconic.

Clarence Nash created the classic and iconic voice but at times I find him a bit difficult to understand while Tony Anselmo has basically perfected this role, he sounds more intelligible and I'm more used to his take.

My vote goes to Tony.

Both are excellent, though Tony is a little better if I had to choose one.

@Scrappy-Fan92 That is strange considering Tony has more votes than Clarence.

I really love both Donalds here. I guess if I was forced to choose, I'd pick Tony. But it's painfully close for me.

I remember looking up that Tony Anselmo took lessons from Clarence Nash before becoming the official voice of Donald. Tony is a great successor to Clarence. And I mean that literally. I can't even immitate Donalds voice. Everytime I try to, I just can't do it.

@Legacyman maybe Tony Anselmo can now teach u 2 become the next voice for Donald when he decides 2 leave but I don't see that happening for a while.

Both are great, but I'm going with Tony since I can understand him better.

Even though I don't really like Kingdom Hearts, Tony voices Donald in the Epic Mickey games along with House of Mouse so I'm going with Tony.

This is actually one of the hardest VC's I think I've ever had to pick one. I grew up with both voices and both sound EXACTLY alike with little to no difference. I grew up watching old Donald Duck shorts with Clarence Nash but then again I did hear a lot more stuff with Tony Anselmo watching House of Mouse and other Disney related things he was in. So I guess I'll go with Tony just due to how I've seen him in more stuff.

I like both, and I heard both growing up in some form or another, though Tony more. But I'd give it to Tony here, but it could go either way.

This is ONE character I cannot vote!

Both actors are very talented and superb. Nash, the original Donald Duck, taught Anselmo how to become the angry duck. So, both actors are great!

This VC is obviously a tie. Both voices are unforgettable, and the fact that one taught the other makes both Nash and Anselmo the best!

I respect Nash, but I love Kingdom Hearts Donald the most so I'm voting for Anselmo.

@BlankSlate Ah, Kou'ichi Yamadera, who's also FIVE other different characters from Kingdom Hearts as well.
Thanks to him, I can't unhear Donald from Ryouga from Ranma 1/2 XD

@BlankSlate Love Koichi Yamadera, he's done a great job dubbing the Disney character's(I even think his Mushu is funnier than Eddie Murphy's), and his Donald Duck is no exeption. He started out a little scratchy in the begining, but now I think he's really gotten it down. I still perfer Anselmo though; he's more refined in his duck speech.

He makes Donald's temper tantrums more funny

Both are quite exceptional for this character. As mentioned, he is the hardest to get right, and of course Clarence's take is classic, but Tony deserves kudos for taking over the role successfully. As mentioned, both tie.
