Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Madeline with sound clips and images.
Madeline is the eponymous character of the Madeline series as she is the smallest of the 12 little school girls in two straight lines. Madeline is a student in Miss Clavel's boarding school in Paris, France in which she is known for being a very brave and free-spirited little girl she is also very mischievous (which is why she is known for stressing out Miss Clavel but Clavel is normally very patient with her.) Madeline is also friends with a young boy named Pepito who is the son of the Spanish Ambassador whom they did not get along with at first but did end up becoming very good friends (and is also implied to be a love interest for her). Madeline is a very well-meaning girl even if her mischievous behavior does sometimes get her into trouble and when Miss Clavel and the girls are at the local Zoo, when the Tiger scares the other girls Madeline is known for walking up to the caged tiger and say "Pooh-Pooh".
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Madeline VC section we take a look at the eponymous character herself... MADELINE! Let us begin...
Marsha Moreau- While Marsha's voice has lowered a bit over the course of the time she spent voicing the role her voice still worked with the role rather well. Marsha's performance also suited Madeline's energetic and even her rather feisty persona rather well and is a fine example of the voice work in the early Madeline specials.
Tracey Lee Smythe- Tracey's voice does work for a rather energetic and precocious young lady (even though her attempt at the French accent is the lightest though.) As for Tracey's performance it does suit Madeline's free-spirited performance pretty well but while her work on the role is a bit above average in general it does work with the role pretty well.
Andrea Libman- I always did find Andrea's voice for her roles (especially back in the 90's) to be ever so adorable and this is no exception (and she also does the French accent pretty well). Andrea's performance suited Madeline's sweet and adventurous persona very well and was a fine example of the voice-work in the show.
Chantal Strand- Anyone who has heard Chantal's work as Bijou in Hamtaro can all too easily picture Chantal in a Madeline production so basically Chantal is a natural as Madeline. Chantal's voice and performance for the role definitely suited Madeline as a precocious and mischievous though well-meaning little girl quite well and is a fine example of her work.
Overall I am going with Andrea and Chantal the most with Marsha at a very close second with Tracey as a pretty good third.
