EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks in honor of today being the 46th anniversary of the original Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer special done by Rankin Bass here is a VC for that ever so manly explorer... YUKON CORNELIUS! Speaking of that aforementioned 1964 original Yukon was voiced by Larry D. Mann. Larry's voice and performance has a good sense of manliness but sounds light-hearted and silly enough for the role that it fits the nature of the special well. To make a long story short Larry D. Mann's performance as Yukon is another pretty good example of why the 1964 special is pretty classic.
About 37 years later there was a Direct-to-Video CGI sequel called "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" in which Scott McNeil takes over the role as Yukon. While I admit that Scott's work as Yukon is not as good of a impersonation as his work as Hermey but it and Scott's performance is a pretty good one nevertheless and it still does work for the role. While the slight Southern accent in Scott's Yukon is a bit thicker than Larry's but its still pretty light when it comes to accented voices like that anyways. Overall I liked them both and they both did pretty well for the role here.
