Mr. Eugene H. Krabs is SpongeBob's cheapskate boss on the show "SpongeBob SquarePants" and the owner of the Krusty Krab. He's also a former armyman and talks like a pirate, particularly with his distinctive laugh.

EDITOR'S OPINION

For our first SpongeBob voice comparison, we'll start out with one of the main characters: Mr. Krabs. In the TV show and the movie, he is voiced by Clancy Brown, who brought a distinctive, gruff voice that fit Mr. Krabs' sailor attitude very well.

In most of the SpongeBob video games when Clancy Brown is unavailable, Joe Whyte provides the voice instead. IMO he does a a pretty decent impression of Brown, but it doesn't have quite the same gruff, salty sailor quality. Bob Joles' take really impressed me; if I didn't know better, I'd think he really was Clancy!

In the end, my vote goes to Clancy Brown.

What's Clancy Brown been doing at during the time of Battle for Bikini Bottom and Such, leaving him Unable to Voice Mr. Krabs? He's done Voice Over for Many Video Games, notably as the Main Antagonist of the Crash Bandicoot Series.

Clancy Brown IS Mr.Krabs. Sadly it's ironic how in the games Mr.Krabs is a likeable funny boss, but recently on the show, he gets more corrupt by the episode.

To be honest both of the stand ins fall flat.

Joe Whyte,while he does sound like a gruff,old sailor,he completly lacks Clancys baritone voice that gave a lot more credibility to mr.krabs experience as rough and tough,former navy,captain.

Bob Joles,how do i put it,remeber when ever you see a male cartoon charcater dressing up as a woman and puting on a falseto voice,that abou it,he sounds mr.krabs trying to sund like a woman.

Theres no contest Clancy Brown is the one and only mr.krabs

I remember playing the Battle for Bikini Bottom game and being so confused by Krabs' new voice. It was very jarring. Clancy all the way.

Woah I had no idea there were 2 other people besides Clancy Brown who did a Mr. Krabs voice.

But yeah, Brown gets my vote.

I think the best Mr. Krabs is pretty self-explanatory.

Clancy Brown IS the role. Both imitators are not very good, not even Bob.

Clancy will always be Mr.Krabs 2 every1 but if something were 2 happen 2 him Joe would have 2 come in full time but I hope that doesn't happen. Yet again I might have jinxed that.

Bob sounds nothing like mr. Krabs in fact he sounds annoying & has a bit of a Scottish accent when voicing him.

Clancy of course, Joe does an average impression, like your average everyday impression of Christopher Walken or "say hello to my little friend!" Al Pacino impression.

i like clancy brown better because he's the Krabs man and plus he wouldn't be the Bikini Bottom's boss of the krusty krabs. he's better for a money lover like the krabs man.
