Alright folks for Christmas Eve here is a VC for the Sentry of the Island of Misfit Toys... CHARLIE IN THE BOX! We shall of course start with the 1964 original special with Alfie Scoop voicing the role of this at the time uniquely named toy. Alfie's voice for the role is a very goofy and silly voice which is genuinely fitting for a Jack in the Box (even though he is well... not named Jack). However Alfie's performance does fit on how Charlie feels that he  lives a rather sad life as he has to live on a remote life just because his name isn't Jack. Of course Charlie is by no means the only sympathetic character on the Island of Misfit Toys but Alfie's work does definitely help on making Charlie a sympathetic character nevertheless.

Nearly 4 decades later there was a direct to video 3D sequel in which Lee Tockar takes over the role and I must say I was quite impressed with Lee here. Like I have said before say what you will about the special but it had some very good vocal mimicry here as Lee does an excellent impersonation of Alfie Scoop's classic work here. Seriously one could barely tell any difference whatsoever with Lee's Charlie in the Box voice and Alfie's Charlie in the Box voice. Oh yes and Lee's performance is pretty darn good as well as it does fit Charlie's persona just fine and as strange as it may sound but its probably one of Lee's better performances as well. Overall I am definitely going with a tie here as Alfie's work is pretty classic but Lee's work is a great example of how to do a voice impersonation here.

They both do great in the role, and Lee Tockar definitely does a perfect impression of Alfie Scoops voice for Charlie (I may hear a hint of Steven Magnet, but he still does well regardless).

Lee Tockar in this role is one of the best imitation performances I've heard in anything anywhere EVER. Just for that, I'm voting for him.

Alfie Scoop number 1.

the other guy was good and your right he sounded like Alfie Scoop's version. I all most thought Alfie Scoop had reprised his roled.
