I will admit that Tom Kenny did an absolutely excellent job at imitating the legendary Daws Butler.  It has a slightly 'higher' tenor to it and in the end it is an imitation so my vote goes to Daws Butler here.

If you ask me, I think Chris Edgarly's Funky is better than Tom's.

Tom Kenny is usually pretty good at imitations (Rabbit, Boo-Boo, Bullwinkle), but I'm in the minority in that I don't like his Funky Phantom very much.

I'm kind of surprised nobody's brought up the fact that Daws reused his Snagglepuss voice for the Funky Phantom yet.

@Michaelsar Yeah, but as long as it's well performed and the voice fits the character, it works. Funky Phantom is supposed to be funky, so the Snagglepuss voice and mannerisms work really well for this type of character, persona, human being, even. (Suffered a Snagglepuss breakdown).

@Starscreamsfan Oh, I'm not complaining.

@Michaelsar I know, just wanted to try the ol' Snagglepuss charm (hence why I started talking like him at the end). ;)

Daws Butler made Funky Phantom what he is so my vote goes to him.

Tom does a pretty good impression though. I'm impressed with him here as he normally sounds like his SpongeBob.

Daws Butler formely did well back in the day but now Tom Kenny was now a new current portrayer of Funky Phantom onward.
