Definitely Mary Wickes. She sounded more like an eccentric old lady with a motherly side.

Jane Withers does an alright job but compared to Mary she doesn't sound too right.

Jane sounds almost manly, Mary sounds more like a goofy old woman

I vote for Mary. Jane is okay, but Mary really captures both sides of Laverne (irascible and loving) perfectly.

On the other hand, in the original movie itself, things are different. I understand some of the Laverne's lines are spoken by Jane, as Mary died before recording all of them, but I can't tell the difference. Does anyone know which lines in the first Hunchback movie are spoken by Jane?

Mary was brilliant so she gets my vote. RIP to her though Jane was a good replacement.

My vote goes to Mary on this one, but Jane is a decent replacement.

Mary Wickes made me laugh when Laverne yells at the gargoyles
Jane Withers is a perfect replacement but her voice is a little higher than Wickes'
I'm going with Wickes

I find Jane Withers to be the weaker of the two. Mary has a quality in her voice that makes her more tolerable to listen to than Jane. RIP Mary Wickes.
