Well folks its time to do VC's for DBZ Movie villains and who better to start that off than the first one? Garlic Jr. has in the past been described as a somewhat more competent version of Emperor Pilaf which does explain the rather familiar voice talent.

In the FUNi/Pioneer Ocean dub of the 1st DBZ Movie he was voiced by Don Brown. While Don does get lower voices ever now & then like Shenron he is well known for higher voices and man this is no exception. While Don Brown's Garlic Jr. voice does sound a lot like his Pilaf voice it still does work as it suits Garlic's arrogance rather well. (Basically to make a long story Don Brown's Garlic Jr. voice is his Pilaf voice but a bit more sinister and yeah it works.)

In the FUNi dub of the first DBZ Movie (and the Garlic Jr. Saga at the FUNi dub of the series) he is voiced by Chuck Huber. While Chuck is not QUITE as known in doing higher voices than Don Brown is I can pretty much say the same thing in praise for Chuck's handiwork for the role. (And on how like Don Brown, Chuck Huber's voice for Garlic Jr. is pretty much his Pilaf voice but a bit more sinister.)

Overall I liked them both so I am going to pretty much give this one a tie.

Tie: this is too close for me to vote. I'd lean towards Chuck Huber seeing as I'm a big fan of his VA work, but truthfully, Don Brown was just as good overall.

I'm not sure who to go with. Both of them are good while in the small form. Their big forms were less impressive. Chick Huber sounded kind of forced. Don Brown didn't sound deep enough. I haven't seen the Ocean dub of this movie so I might change my mind if I saw it.

@coolgeek176 I think Don Brown did better overall. His line delivery about how "I CAN'T DIE! I'VE BEEN GIVEN IMMORTALITY!" as he's falling into the dead zone (as big Garlic) is really awesome.

@coolgeek176 I really recommend watching the ocean dub version of this movie if you haven't already. In my opinion, it features some of the finest work that the ocean studio actors provided to DBZ way back in 1997.

Don Brown fits the devious, ambitious, gleefully evil nature of the character better. Chuck Huber plays the psychotic part well, but his voice is better suited for Pilaf.

My vote goes to Don Brown.
His voice sounds more "evil" to me. :P

I personally choose Don Brown for Garlic Jr. He just seems so much more natural and also very wicked and gleeful.

In terms of the shorter Garlic Jr. I think I like Chuck Huber more, he sounds more insane and unhinged. Whereas Don Brown just sounds sort of like a weasely thug.

But as far as his larger form goes, I like Don Brown much more. He kind of reminds me of Campbell Lane's Rampage in a way, it sounds psychotic and tough whereas Chuck Huber in Garlic's larger form sounds...kind of forced, really.

Ultimately I'm voting for Don Brown since I prefer the larger form over the smaller form, but overall I like them both for different reasons.

@Metabad Chuck's voice was the same for both forms but there was some effects added it to his bigger form.

@pete Ahh, so that's what he did...guess that's another reason why I like Don Brown's voice for the larger form more.

Both are good Don Browns voice has that sneaky and sinister sound to it but Chuck Huber has this insane sound to it which is why I think hes the best fit for the Garlic Jr saga. Though over all I prefer Chuck Huber's.

Chuck Huber was great for Pilaf but...not right for Garlic Jr. Don Brown's voice actually sounds evil.
said at 5:01 PM on Wed Nov 14 2012
@Galactic_Cyrus Design wise they are the same at least in Garlic Jr.'s smaller form which is why be was cast as both. I think that Chuck was great as smaller Garlic Jr. but big Garlic Jr. is just small voice with some effects added.
said at 5:29 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013
@pete I know, they have the same Japanese voices too. It works, but in this case Chuck Huber was better as Pilaf than he was as Garlic, while Don Brown was better as Garlic than he was as Pilaf.

King Piccolo got eternal youth so Garlic JR. isn't the only villain in the anime to get his wish. Also the canoncity of Dead Zone and the Garlic Jr. Saga is debatable so King Piccolo might be the only villain in the anime to get his wish.
