EDITOR'S OPINIONAh yes Dr. Gero namely Android 20 not exactly one of the smartest "Super Geniuses in Robotics" but that's a different story and he is also today's subject for a Voice Compare.
First up we have Kent Williams for FUNimation's side and the first English VA for the not-so good Doctor. While Kent Williams' acting career has been around since the early 1970's Dr. Gero was one of his earlier voice acting roles. And while its not his finest work even regarding the DB characters he voiced it certainly works well enough.
And as for the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ, we have one of the Dobson brothers namely Brian Dobson. In retrospection Brain Dobson probably wouldn't be my first choice when it comes to Ocean's VA talent but this dub often wanted to go for "Sound-a-likes" and in this case it worked. The difference between the voices are fairly existent but very small.
And the last but in a way the least is Jonathan Love in the Blue Water dub for DBGT. First of all okay who forgot to tell him that he was voicing an old man? Seriously while his Gero voice doesn't sound REALLY young but is it just me or do his voice sound a little too young for an old man like Dr. Gero? But while his voice is definitely the weakest among the Gero voices his acting is not that bad though. So the worst thing I can say about Jonathan Love in this case is that he was VERY much miscast as Dr. Gero IMO.
So basically to make a long story short to me its a tie between Kent Williams and Brian Dobson with Jonathan Love at dead last.
