EDITOR'S OPINIONWell folks this is for another VC for the Hayao Miyazaki classic that is "Kiki's Delivery Service" and this time we shall do one for the little black cat that is with Kiki namely Jiji.
In the Streamline English dub that was made for Japanese Airlines in 1990 he was voiced by VA Kerrigan Mahan. And in all honesty it wasn't a bad performance sure it wasn't perfect for the role but it was alright. Though as you can already tell this is a fairly one-sided match considering his opposition (but more on that later) but still Kerrigan's performance as Jiji does have its merit.
And for the far more known English dub of Kiki's Delivery Service that came from Disney in the late 90's Jiji was voiced by late great comic actor Phil Hartman. And what can I say? I have always enjoyed the English dubs that Disney has done for the Studio Ghibli films and... lets just say this is no exception. Phil Hartman is well known for doing good comedic performances and this is no exception and one of his last performances was one of his best as well.
Overall I liked them both but of course I am going with the late great Phil Hartman here...
