Harry Potter Voice Compares

Voice Compare » Madagascar » Kowalski

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Kowalski with sound clips and images.
Kowalski is one of the four penguins from the Madagascar films, TV specials and TV series.

He is the tallest of the penguins and is the most intelligent. He tends to over-analyze missions and is acting leader when Skipper is unavailable.

Although Chris Miller was the first voice I personally prefer Jeff Bennett's performance. IMO Jeff Bennett's Kowalski sounds more intelligent than Chris Miller's voice.

Miller did a lot better in the Penguins movie than ever before.

Ironically, if Jeff Bennett used his Kyle Katarn voice, it would've been a lot closer to Miller's Kowalski voice.

Jeff Bennet is the definitive Kowalski,he nails the characters personality and his delivery is pretty funny
Theres nothing to say about Chris Miller,his Kowalski is nothing but an extra in the movie(as are Private and Rico),and thus has no personality.

Jeff sounds smarter & Chris sounds like he's in a war zone half the time.

CM: Too deep and rasping. It gives him miliartary look, but i still think that it isnt good.
JB: More free and higher. It gives him smart guy look and i like smart guys. I also like when sings. Jeff all the way!

One of the rare cases where the original voice is less popular than the second/impersonating voice.

I like both but Jeff adds a bit more to his personality so I'll go with him.

@Cartoon_fan87 To be fair it was the writers that added more personality.

Chris Miller's adds the military aspect to Kowalski's voice. And they are supposed to be like a military troop.
But Jeff Bennett's using his usual smart guy voice, and Kowalski is nothing if not the smart guy.

In this case, I vote Jeff.

Dewed: I just watched "Clash of Triton," the latest Spongebob special. I thought King Neptune's voice was Jeff Bennett. It was John O'Hurley! Very similar qualities in those two.

I always thought Jeff Bennett's sounds like John O'Hurley. In fact, that's who I thought it was.

I for one like jeff bennet's better, for some reason I just don't like the ruffness of Chirs Miller's but I like the smoothness of Jeff's, plus, I don't think anyone could do the "See ya later, Science Haters" hiss like Jeff.
