Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Hydia with sound clips and images.
Franchise: My Little Pony

Hydia is a diminuitive witch and the main antagonist of My Little Pony: The Movie and the 10-episode story arc "The End of Flutter Valley". She strongly dislikes the ponies for moving into her ancestors' land and altering its living conditions from its original gloomy form. Her two daughters Reeka and Draggle double as her pair of rather incompetent minions; her disappointment in them is such that she is quite annoyed when they actually refer to her as their mother.

Leachman practices a reasonable range of emotion as the character; while by default she gives an air of nasty bitterness, she can also switch to that of quite reminiscing or mocking sweetness. Meanwhile, MacNeille is rather one-note in that she hardly sounds anything other than mad, which isn't helped much by the rougher sound of her voice. My vote's going with Leachman here.

Cloris Leachman Sounds more Entertaining.

If she Appears in 'Friendship is Magic' , Anjelica Huston would be a Perfect Fit in the Role

Tress MacNeille actually isn't bad at all in the role; I always liked her voice acting, and she's hysterically nasty in this part, although a bit mono dimensional.

That said, I have to give this to Cloris Leachman. The zest and emotional range she brings to the role is excellent, and she obviously seems to relish any role she gets. So Cloris it is.

Cloris Leachman did a great Hydia. Hydia to me sounded like Gnorga to me.
