EDITOR'S OPINIONAh yes as for the 2nd Gummi Bears VC we have the more practical minded realist of the Gummi Bears whom is well lets just say a rather bit of a grouch but does have a soft side as well namely Gruffi Gummi! Granted one could point out that for a bear named "Gruffi" neither one of them sounds all that gruff but fortunately the fine quality make that a very minor detail. Anyways in the first season of the series he was voiced by the late great Bill "Bullwinkle Moose" Scott in which this role is a somewhat interesting change of pace for his work to be honest. Bill's voice for Gruffi and his performance suited Gruffi's personality whom is a bear that is rarely amused but is deep down a kind creature despite his not-so friendly disposition. Its probably one of Bill's better performances and is a fine example of the VA quality in the show.
However Gummi Bears was for the most part the late Bill Scott's last show in which he died in the mid 80s so after the 1st season Corey Burton took over the role for the rest of the series ever since the 2nd Season Premiere "Up, Up and Away". And I must say that Corey Burton was a fine replacement in which he did do well in trying to sound like the late great Bill Scott (though there is a little bit of a noticeable difference such as Corey's Gruffi voice sounds a bit younger. But hey I'm not complaining especially considering on how there was a 35 year age difference between the two guys.) But still Corey's performance was also quite suitable as it definitely reflects well on how Gruffi was always a bit of a hardcase whom can show a soft side. And its not only a classic example of Corey's work but also a fine example of the show's great voice acting, so overall I am not entirely sure who to go with here as both did rather well for the role.
