Ah Yoshi everyone's favorite little green Dinosaur that has been quite the regular in the series ever since the first SNES game namely Super Mario World.

And speaking of which his debut into North American animation is namely the Super Mario World animated series voiced by Andrew Sabiston. It might seem strange for him to be voiced by a guy but Andrew does do a fairly convincing cutesy higher voice so I am willing to give him credit for that. When it comes to Canadian Voice Talent Mr. Sabiston has been doing this for years but hasn't had that many roles at all let alone memorable ones. But still I would say that Yoshi in the SMW animated series is probably Andrews best work.

Now as for the games we have one of Nintendo's music composers Kazumi Totaka whom has been voicing Yoshi ever since Yoshi's story. Now normally we don't use Japanese Voice talent in BTVA's Voice compares since its kind of hard to understand Japanese audio clips but all things considered I think we can make an exception here. While Yoshi usually only says his name, Kazumi does do a lively performance for Yoshi's energetic personality with a very fitting voice.

So I must say both sides do definitely fit their respective roles for sure.

Kazumi Tokata is the best here. No one else comes close.

Andrew Sabiston fits the cartoon version of Yoshi rather well. And Kazumi Tokaka, of course does a great job as Yoshi in the games themselves... I'd say it's a tie for me personally.

Kazumi Totaka is pretty classic as Yoshi, enough said, going with him here.

Andrew Sabiston's performance is good, but a bit too forced at times.

Obviously Totaka, but Sabiston's is sort of cute in his own way.

Kazumi will always be Yoshi while Andrew really misses the mark.

Kazumi, easily. Andrew Sabiston sounds like a Toad trying to imitate Yoshi.

It would be funny if you guys also had sound clips of Yoshi's "SFX" voice from the 1990s.

1. Kazumi Totaka - Do I need a reason?
2. Andrew Sabiston- His Yoshi voice was hilarious!

My personal favorite, however, is his voice from Mario Kart 64, which I've heard is Isaac Marshall, but I don't know for sure.
