EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Hanna Barbera VC Section we take a look at the Ant Hill Mob leader... CLYDE! Let us begin...
Paul Winchell- Paul's voice for the role was alright but I guess I can understand why Paul didn't try to do a "Gangster" voice (even though Clyde is a fairly blatant example of the Gangster Archetype). But to be fair Paul's performance does suit Clyde's authoritative personality rather well so while it might not be one of Paul's most memorable work but its a pretty good example of his work anyways.
Jim Cummings- While Jim Cummings is by all means an excellent VA who can do great impressions of the late great Paul Winchell's work this isn't quite one of them. Unlike Jim's other attempts at voicing Paul Winchell's roles it is perhaps a little too easy to tell that's not Paul voicing Clyde. But to be fair Jim's voice and performance for the role are decent especially on their own merits but this is just an alright example of Jim's work.
Overall neither one of them are bad but I will go with the late great Paul Winchell a bit more on this one.
