EDITOR'S OPINIONAnd now for something a little different namely with Gohan and Videl's young daughter Pan!
We shall be starting this off with the 1997 English release of the PS1 fighting game "Dragon Ball GT Final Bout" in which she is voiced by VA Lia Sargent. I kind of have mixed feelings about this because Lia is well known for doing cutesy higher voices well but her Pan voice is a bit... nasally. But its not really bad as her performance does fairly suit Pan's bratty half pint persona. While Lia Sargent wasn't my first choice for Pan anyways when it comes to that region but as for voice work in that game I have heard better but I have heard a lot worst.
And now for DBZ in which we see Pan as a cutesy little rug rat who is only 4 years old but still has that trademark Saiyan strength. In the FUNi dub she was voiced by Susan Huber, whom does do a cute little girl voice and her performance is just fine as well.
As for the EuroCanadian DBZ dub she was voiced by Brenna "Rin" O'Brien, in which I admit I did find Brenna's Rin voice to be a bit cuter though her performance is just as good as Susan's.
Now as for DBGT we have Pan as a little pre-teen girl and in the FUNimation dub she is voiced by FUNi VA Elise Baughman whom does a cutesy but not too cloying preteen girl voice and her performance did suit Pan well.
In the Blue Water dub of DBGT she is voiced by Caitlynne Medrek and to be honest I can pretty much say the same thing as I did with Elise. And to be honest I found both versions of Pan in DBGT to be good and one of the better performances in their respective dubs.
Overall I liked them all, as for 4 year old Pan both are very good but I liked Brenna a bit more while in DBGT its a tie between Elise and Caitlynne while Lia is in second place.
