EDITOR'S OPINION

Well 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...

Phil really defined this character with his take, and though the script sometimes failed him, his voice and performance kept Jiji entertaining. Kerrigan's just okay, but obviously not on par with a comic legend like Phil.

Definitely going with the late Phil Hartman. Not only was he hilarious throughout the film, he's easily one of the best actors in the Disney dub.

Phil gets my vote. Because his voice makes Jiji sound more funny and halarious! ;)

@Anthonyiscool64 Yeah rather than being cautious like in the original and Streamline's dub Jiji is a pessimistic and cynical character in Disney's dub

Oh my god, Phil Harman, 150%. Kerrigan is a great voice actor, but was a TAD miscast as Jiji.

As controversial as Phil Hartman's take on Jiji is, I really have to say that I personally prefer it to Kerrigan Mahan; no offense to him of course, he does make Jiji a fairly likeable character, but Phil's performance is just priceless. Not only does he get the best lines in the whole movie (they always leave me in stitches), he simply owns the whole film. It's a shame that he died after completing his work in this film; his Jiji is a scream from start to finish, and one of his finest roles ever.

there was nothing terribly wrong with Kerrigans performance but Phil Hartman was very fitting for the role and gave a good performance. Phil all the way he was always one of my favorite comedic actors
