Merry Christmas everyone! As for the Voice Compare section we will get a new VC for the classic Hayao Miyazaki film "Kiki's Delivery Service" and this time this is for Kiki's father Okino.

In the 1990 Streamline English dub for the movie namely for Japan Airlines he was voiced by John Dantona. John had a relatively small career in acting in general let alone voice acting but his work as Okino is a good example of why he is not a really bad one. John did a nice moderate tone and his performance did give a young fatherly feel that did suit the role.

And of course for the Disney release of the movie he was voiced by Jeff Bennett and while Jeff has had fatherly roles before this is easily one of his saner ones. But still Jeff Bennett definitely delivers as Okino as he to does a nice warm fatherly tone for the role that was quite fitting as well and is one of Jeff's better performances.

Overall this is another case of "both are good but I am going with the Disney dub" again.

1. Jeff Bennett: Bennett has a knack for voicing father figures, and this is no exception. Loved the dialogue exchange between him and Dunst when Okino is talking to Kiki in the bedroom.
2. John Dantona: Dantona's not bad either. But, what really drags him down is his delivery and script.
