Voice Compare » Dr. Seuss » Lorax
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lorax with sound clips and images.
The Lorax is the self-proclaimed guardian of the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants. He often speaks on the behalf of the trees due to their incapability of speech. When the Once-ler begins chopping down the Truffula Trees to begin his Thneed industry, the Lorax is forced to vacate the forest animals from their homes and ineffectually warns the Once-ler of the consequences of his destructive business practices until the last Truffula Tree is downed and the Lorax himself is forced to leave.
EDITOR'S OPINIONHolt voices the part of a determined but ultimately ineffectual elder well enough, and the voice itself is fairly specific to the character. While DeVito's gruffer performance sort of fits the character (particularly during his short "you have been warned" speech where he sounds more convincingly like a guardian of the forest), it's pretty easy to tell that it's DeVito speaking rather than the Lorax. My opinion's leaning toward Holt here.
