Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Timmy Turner with sound clips and images.
Timmy Turner is the main character of the Fairly Oddparents TV series from Nickelodean. Timmy Turner is a young boy whom is known as "An Average Kid that no one understands" with really inept parents and has to constantly deal with Vicki the Evil Babysitter however he also has two Fairy Godparents by the names of Cosmo and Wanda. Timmy gets to make wishes that his Fairy Godparents will magically grant and even though these wishes usually turn out badly Timmy still does have a strong bond with his Fairy Godparents. Timmy also has some unrequited romantic issues with Trixie Tang (he has an unrequited crush on her) and Vicki's little sister Tootie (she has an unrequited crush on him).
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday we open the Fairly OddParents VC section and who better to start this off with than the main character of the series TIMMY TURNER! In the pilot episodes of Fairly Oddparents Timmy was voiced by the late Mary Kay Bergman. Mary's voice for the role had a very raspy boyish voice that did suit the role rather well. Mary's performance for the role did work fairly well for the role (and it works with how Timmy was a bit smarter in the earlier episodes.) But still Mary's work as Timmy Turner is a fine example of her work and an interesting change of pace as well (since she hardly ever did little boy voices).
Ever since the Fairly Oddparents series began Tara Strong took over the role and was a fine substitute for the late Mary Kay Bergman. While Tara's voice for Timmy was never as raspy as Mary's I did notice on how she did try to sound a bit more like Mary's voice did earlier in the series (and did a pretty good job at it too). Granted nowadays Tara's voice for Timmy has gone a bit higher and squeakier but of course it still works well with the role here. Unlike Mary, Tara has is known for voicing young boys well and this is no exception as she does a rather energetic performance that suits Timmy's childish persona rather well. Overall I am not entirely sure who to go with here as both of these ladies did pretty well with this role here.
