Dragon Ball Dragon Ball


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Puar with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Dragon Ball

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. Jodi Forrest 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.

My favorite is probably Cheryl Chase. Her Angelica voice really suits the character at that point of the series.

The rest are too squeaky and high-pitched. Brina barely made the list.

I actually love Cathy Weseluck's take on Puar the most. It's the only here who doesn't sound so squeeky sounding. I know the character is suppose to sound high pitch but Cathy still sounds cute without over doing it.

Kathy Morse is my least favourite, she sounds exactly like Jill Frappier's Luna....and the idea of a cute little cat having an old nanny voice really doesn't sit well with me.

The rest are OK but annoy me though Cheryl Chase would be my second favourite.

Also, Monika's voice varied a bit throughout the series. Sometimes it sounded pretty close to her Chiaotzu, but later on they just made her sound squeakier and squeakier. It's probably the squeakiest thing I've ever heard, I'm surprised it didn't break glass! I liked it though, I think it worked better than the more snobby British Puar they were going with for Kathy and Cathy (heh!). I do still think these are all good voices in their own ways.

Brina Palencia is the better Puar. Second place is Cathy Wesluck.

Monika Antonelli is decent, but it sounds so grating. Monika did Chiaotzu better when you compare those two performances.

Kriss Simms is pretty good. Cheyrl Chase reminds me of Angelica from Rugrats, which kinda turns me away a little. Unknown VA is annoying, & Kathy Morse is at last place. The accent absolutely ruins the performance.

I grew up with Monika Antonelli, but I can't help but find her Puar obnoxious and grating nowadays. I remember her sounding better in some of her later work as the character, but it never got that great, IMO. I really wish Brina would have come up with her own thing rather than to try and replicate Monika's squeaky sound; it makes her sound almost equally annoying. She might have been told to do it like this and it might not have been her fault, but it's still annoying. They're not terrible, but they're both almost unbearably obnoxious and grating at times with their squeaky and over-the-top sound, like in these clips.

Cathy Weseluck sounds pretty decent. In this clip her voice sounds too ordinary, but towards the end of it her voice started to sound more cute and distinct. Kathy Morse is pretty annoying like Monika and Brina. While she's not quite as squeaky as Monika and Brina, she comes close and on top of that her delivery is just goofy and her accent is distracting. These two are decent, but not special from what I can hear, IMO.

Unknown Voice Actor doesn't leave much of an impression in this small clip, but she's pretty annoying too.

Cheryl Chase is my favorite of all these voices. Her voice is kind of high-pitched and a touch squeaky on occasion, but the difference is that her voice is a lot softer and her acting isn't as over-the-top. In fact, she actually manages to make Puar sound pretty adorable, endearing and likable. From what I've seen of it the Harmony Gold dub has some underrated performances in it, and Cheryl Chase is another good example of that.

My vote goes to Cathy Weseluck

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...
said at 4:07 PM on Tue Jun 18 2013
@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!
said at 12:00 PM on Fri Jun 11 2010
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.

@satoshi perfect and bitch? Lol I think you mean pitch.
said at 2:28 AM on Mon May 7 2012
@pete I'm pretty sure he meant "pitch". Typo.

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

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.
