Mole Man

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mole Man with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Fantastic Four

Mole Man is one of the various foes of the Fantastic Four whom made his comic book debut in the 1st edition of the Fantastic Four in November of 1961. Mole Man was formerly known as Harvey Rupert Elder whom was a scientist and explorer but was shunned due to various aspects such as his dwarfish appearance, his abusive personality and that his fellow scientists often deemed him to be a crackpot theorist. But after when he became Mole Man by being the leader of a group of subterranean creatures his powers are a strong radar sense (to make up for his poor vision) and he is a skilled Bojutsu fighter. But while Mole Man is normally known as a villain he has occasionally worked with heroes such as The Thing and Hulk in the past.

Today on the Fantastic Four VC section we take a look at one of the FF's first foes... MOLE MAN! Since this is a rather large VC I shall say that all of these guys did alright with the role but I do think that Gregg Berger and Paul Dobson did the best job in portraying Mole Man as an insane creepy lunatic (though Jack DeLeon's calmer and raspier depiction was an interesting change of pace though.)

I actually like Barry Dennen take as Mole Man so he gets my vote

Paul and Greg were good as as well

Side note : Dale Wilson, Peter MacNicol, and and Ben Phillips would make good choices for Mole Man

I definitely like Paul Dobson best as he comes off as both creepy and disgusting at the same time.

Gregg Berger would be a really close second.

Barry Dennen, Paul Kligman, Jack DeLeon, Roger Rhose and Ted Cassidy are average, not bad but nothing that special.

Ted Biaselli sounds disgusting but also sounds annoying like a really bad Meatwad impression.

David Harvard Lawrence is definitely the worst because he's boring, he has none of the qualities that are needed for Mole Man. He sounds like a boring ordinary guy. Was this supposed to be an ironic casting choice? It just confuses me why they went with this direction....oh wait.....Jeph Loeb.....oh never mind.

Paul gets my vote for sure.

BONUS: I could see Frank Welker, Mark Hamill, Steve Blum, John DiMaggio, Don Brown, Dale Wilson, Sean Schemmel or James Carter Cathcart fitting as Mole Man.

Berger and Dobson are a close call for me. I grew up with Dobson's Mole Man (in the two episodes he was in) but Berger's, while new to me, actually fits the role as well.

Dobson, for my money, fits the character to a T.

I wonder if Peter MacNicol would make a good Mole Man?
said at 12:03 PM on Fri Jan 3 2014
Paul Dobson wins easily

Second is Greg Berger,wtih better voce direction he would be number one

Ted Biaselli very good for this particular version

Berry Dennen,not horrible but way to high pitched and grating,not to mention to over the top

Roger Rose generic and forgettable

David H Larwence,oh god, hes so boring,his delivery is somehow both monotonous and uncomfortably akward at the same time

In the future i would like to hear either John DiMaggio or Billy West voice Mole man

S.M.A.S.H. should have casted Peter MacNicol. The lines would have fit him perfectly plus he'd great as the character overall.

@spider-batmanx12 You mean MacNicol? I think S.M.A.S.H. should have used him instead.

@Music Meister Actually, Jeph Loeb is more likely the culprit of the Heroes cast always showing up in these shows.

Loeb worked on the show when it ran.

Tom Kenny's Doc Ock voice would have been great for the Mole Man in SMASH but it would be wird which is probably why it didn't happen.

Roger is really inconstant and he sounds a little like Billy West in the beginning.

I said before I don't mind what they did with Mole Man in SMASH, it's unexpected but I don't hate it. THat said, David was super generic.

Ted really sounds like Stitch. Don't you agree?

I'm going with Paul Dobson.

The clip marked Ted Cassidy is NOT Ted! You want to hear Ted do the voice of Galactus from the '67 Fantastic Four!

@PWayneSmith It's definitely Ted Kassidy. That's why it's called voice acting.

I gotta say, Paul Dobson really nailed it as Mole Man, especially since how different he sounds compared with Doom.
said at 11:37 AM on Thu Apr 19 2012
I'm gonna go with Paul Dobson for Mole Man, though Barry Dennen and Gregg Berger were also good. I really don't like toilet humor, so yeah, I don't like with Ted Biaselli's verison as SHS's Mole Man was a walking toilet joke.

1. Paul Dobson- What you imagine for the character; insane, creepy and disgusting but done in a way that keeps you interested in the character. Makes me wish he appeared more in the show.

2. Gregg Berger- Lacked a certain 'disgusting-ness' but still showed enough insane and creepiness. Also it sounds like he's having a little fun with the role which is always nice.

3. Jack Deleon- An interesting portrayal of the character and Jack does this well while still hinting at a insane/creepy vibe to the character.

4. Barry Dennen- Nothing really all that bad it's just a little generic but did show moat of Moleman's characteristics so he gets a pass.

5. Ted Biaselli- it does fit the Show's version but it gets annoying after a while though the show does show off his disgusting side.

6. Paul Kligman- the voice does sound forced and a bit high so if he had "polished" the voice more it would have worked.

7. Ted Cassidy- his lines are overdone, he sometimes slips into his Thing voice and that gets distracting since they were in the same show, and he sounds too angry. It's not the worst voice in the show but is jot close to being great.

I vote for Paul Dobson
said at 2:55 PM on Mon Mar 19 2012
Paul Dobson at 1, Gregg Burger at 2, Paul Kligman at 3, Jack Deleon at 4, Barry Dennen at 4, Ted Biaselli at 6 as his take did fir his version, and Ted Cassidy at 7 as his take is more angry then insane and he also overdid it. So the first 5 are the best voices in my opinion.
