EDITOR'S OPINIONMr. Mxyzptlk, easily the quintessential trickster villain and character with a hard to pronounce/spell name. While he has had a few appearances in live action shows he has been in a couple or so animated ones too. In all throughout Superfriends he was voiced by Veteran VA Frank Welker.
Though as renowned as Frank Welker is the last time he was in a Voice Compare with one of his roles on Superfriends as Kalibak it didn't go so well. But Ol' Mxyzptlk is a role that's easily more suitable for Frank Welker's higher voices. Mxyzptlk would require a higher tone that's a nice showing of mischievousness, that's not exactly easy on the ears but quite frankly it was never suppose to. And Frank did deliver on that as its one of his better performances on the show.
In the DCAU cartoon Superman: The Animated Series he was voiced by known comic actor Gilbert Gottfried. In which in the series he is given a very scheming and obnoxious high tone of voice, gee I wonder why they would cast Gilbert Gottfried in this role huh? OK perhaps that was a little cheap but still Gilbert was quite a natural in this role for sure as it was definitely a case of perfect casting there.
So I am not sure which to pick here, both did do the role well.
