Voice Compare » Dragon Ball » Puar

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Puar with sound clips and images.
Puar is Yamcha's cat companion. Puar is very dedicated to Yamcha and would gladly do anything to please him. Puar also often serves as the voice of reason for Yamcha, and has a love/hate relationship with Oolong, whom both are shape-shifters. He is officially a male, but sometimes referred to as female by mistake.

Puar was first voiced by Cheryl Chase (as Carole Wilder) in the short-lived Harmony Gold dub of the original Dragon Ball in the late-80s in one of her first voice roles (she later went on to voice Angelica Pickes in Rugrats).

In the short-lived dub in the mid-90s by FUNimation and BLT Productions, Puar was voiced by Kathy Morse for both the movie and series. In the original short-lived dub of Dragon Ball Z from FUNi/Saban (recorded at Ocean Studios), Cathy Weseluck took over the role. She later reprised the role for the EuroCanadian AB Groupe dub of the second half of the series. For AB Groupe's dub for the original Dragon Ball (recorded at Blue Water), Kris Simms voiced the character. An unknown voice actress provided the voice in AB Groupe's dub of some of the movies.

For the FUNimation in-house dubs of the franchise, the character was usually voiced by Monika Antonelli, however in recent media (such as DBZ Kai and DB Movie 1), Brina Palencia has taken over the role.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Overall, I'd have to place Monika Antonelli, Brina Palencia, Cathy Weseluck, Kris Simms, and Cheryl Chase all tied for first place, with Kathy Morse at a slightly decent last place (the accent was a little out-of-place and distracting).

I'm going with Monika Antonelli for Puar. Palencia's Puar is a bit too high and shrill in this role. Cathy was okay as well...I really couldn't agree more with Galactic_Cyrus on this one.

1. Monika Antonelli - She sounds super squeaky in that clip, but after that episode her voice mellowed out and she sounded perfectly adorable.
2. Brina Palencia - It's similar to Monika's, but a bit too high and shrill at points. Pretty much a variant of her Juvia voice, but it works.
3. Cathy Weselcuk - Fits a magical cat perfectly well, but it's more what I'd hear Luna from "Sailor Moon" sounding like.
4. Cheryl Chase - Pretty child-like rendition, which works well for Puar.
5. Kathy Morse - Sounds a bit stuck up and princess-y.
6. Kris Simms - I don't get "cat" out of her teenage girly voice.
7. UVA - WTF?

I'm giving my vote to Antonelli for sounding not too obnoxious, despite the squeaky voice. No offense, but Palencia kind of made Puar sound like an angsty teenage girl...

@MaryKosmos I think sounding like teenage girls is a typecast for her IMO.

I'm voting for Brina Palencia since she uses the really high pitch cartoonish voice that Monika Antonelli used (which fitted IMO) while sounding more natural and putting more emotion into her performance. Though I'm sure Monika Antonelli would have been just as good if she had returned for Kai.

@itsover9000 Hey, we've done farmer with a shotgun! You can't get more minor than that! Puar is actually a pretty decent-sized role in the series!

I know Brina Palencia is a better overused in dubs, but I like her the most she had the perfect and bitch and softness without over doing it, but all of Puar's VAs did a great job as well.

looks like there will be a new VA added. Brina Palencia will voice Puar in Dragon Ball Kai.

Personally, I think Simms has the most natural-sounding Puar, making the character sound sweet, but with a little attitude, and not too cutsie.

Imagine, somebody at Blue Water actually doing a GOOD peformance.

But to be honest, thanks to my years of Funimation conditioning, I always hear Antonelli's voice in my head when I even so much as read the manga. That's staying power, and now and then, it beats out competence.

They all did pretty well but I do prefer Cathy and Monika the best.

The high squeaky voice doesn't bother me since Puar is a tiny creature and doesn't really seem to age.

It's true Akira Toriyama considered Puar a male when writing the manga so I guess that should be the official gender. I suppose confusion and mistakes lead Puar to being female in the dub and it'skind of too late to really fix a mistake about a character that has a pretty minor role overall in the series.

Purists might make a big deal about it, but the average person probably doesn't even care that much.

I have to say I like Cathy's the best, it's funny how "it's" most current voice actor has the squeakiest voice out of them, it's also kind of funny how the original creator considers Puar male however all of it's voice actors have been female and there's very little masculine behavior about it other than feeling shy about putting lotion on Bulma.
