Here is another somewhat big VC for the Spider Man VC section and this time its for that editor of the Daily Bugle, caring father of Randy Robertson and is a much more reasonable authority figure than J. Jonah Jameson (though to be fair the 3rd part is not exactly that hard to achieve)... JOE ROBBIE ROBERTSON! Since this is a somewhat big VC I shall make this short by saying that all of these guys did pretty well. (Oh yes and Alfonso made a pretty good younger Robbie and not sound too much like Randy Robertson.) I must say I was surprised by Buster Jones' voice for Robbie as to be honest I couldn't even tell that it was him at all at first but it still works pretty well for the role anyways. Both Rodney and Phil deliver memorable performances for this role while Jeff and Charlie actually did pretty well for the 2nd and 3rd Spider man movie games as well. Overall I am not entirely sure who to prefer the most here as they all did pretty well.

VC thoughts update

Despite having only one line, I really want to hear more of Troy Baker as Robbie. He could pull it off if he was given another chance, but as it stands, he sounds pretty good. I feel he sounds pretty close to Hilly Hicks (who played Robbie in the 1977 live-action Spider-Man pilot).

Oddly enough, I first thought Rodney Saulsberry was Dorian Harewood. They sound pretty similar and if it weren't for the end credits, I wouldn't know this was Rodney. But still, he does a pretty good job as Robbie.

Alfonso Ribeiro works perfectly for a younger Robbie.

Lee Bailey (incorrectly listed as Buster Jones) is one of the better performances in that cartoon. A little one note, but it works.

Phil LaMarr sounds good, but like Bailey, he feels a little bit one-note.

Charlie Robinson is decent.

Jeff Coopwood sounds a little bit too weird for my taste.

Am I the only one that finds it really surprising to see Carlton Banks (Alfonso Ribeiro) in a Spiderman cartoon. It blows my mind today and it still blows my mind now.

Phil and Rodney are both good

Side note Beau Billingslea would make a good Robbie Robertson

I actually like Jeff Coopwood as Robbie the most, he just sounds really cool and his voice sounds really unique and gruff but still really friendly and outgoing, the perfect contrast to J. Jonah Jameson.

Phil LaMarr did pretty well as Robbie too.

I do like Rodney Saulsberry but he sounds a little indistinct.

Buster Jones or Lee Bailey or whoever he was? is alright but not my favourite, he kinda sounds like Michael McConnohie actually.

Charlie Robinson is alright.

Alfonso Riberio worked a lot better as Randy than as Robbie.

Troy Baker only had one line but that did not fit whatsoever

Giving it to Jeff Coopwood.

BONUS: I can so see someone like Alvin Sanders or Kevin Michael Richardson being an excellent fit for Robbie.

Weird that they didn't have LaMarr voice Robbie in AEMH. They were clearly planning to use SSM cast (before BS redubs) and he already voiced JARVIS.

@The Doctor Probably because they didn't want to pay Phil for only one line

I Wish Bill Nunn voiced Robbie in one of the games based off the movie. but since that did don't happen i'll go with Phill

If Phil had more screen time he'd be my idea
Robbie, but Rodney it is. So used to that voice, especially during arguments with JJ. I could easily use John Stewart and picture Phil though.

1. Phil LaMarr - Robbie needed more screentime on this show, since Phil's the best voice for him.
2. Rodney Saulsberry - Great voice, but the delivery's off some times.
3. Jeff Coopwood - A unique sounding voice. I like it.
4. Charlie Robinson - Well performed, but kind of generic.
5. Buster Jones - Way too forced in his delivery. Was his role on this show just to say "But Jonah!" ?
6. Troy Baker - White guy trying to sound black = fail.
7. Alfonso Ribeiro - Young Robbie doesn't really count, though personally I think he was better as his son.

Alfonso and Phil are my favourites in this VC.

As for Troy, he is a very strange choice for Robbie. It makes me wonder what on earth was the director thinking.
said at 7:06 AM on Wed Aug 14 2013
@Fulgore2005 Actually, it would be Rodney and Phil being the best two. Alfonso is the younger version.

Rodney & Phil are my 2 favs.

Troy needs 2 appear a bit more as Robbie if he wants 2 impress any1.

Jeff has a cool calm voice for Robbie while Charlie did not bad though Buster didn't sound like a black guy.

Alfonso doesn't count as is young Robbie.

Yes.... this really is all Troy Baker says in the episode (if anyone was wondering)...

I thought I'd commented and voted on this one already, but I didn't. Anyway, gonna go with Phil LaMarr for Robbie, though Rodney Saulsberry and Jeff Coopwood were also good.
