Voice Compare » Toy Story » Slinky Dog
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Slinky Dog with sound clips and images.
Slinky Dog is a toy dachshund with a southern accent whose front and back legs are separated by a slinky spring. This gives him the ability to stretch to great distances, which he uses in various ways.
EDITOR'S OPINIONGiven the relaxed southern nature in his character, Jim Varney (best known for his many Ernest movies) was a great choice for Slinky. His heavy accent and slow-paced voice fit generally sleepy looking spring dog like a glove.
Sadly, Varney passed away one year after Toy Story 2 in 2000. Having never thought there would a Toy Story 3, I always did take note that whenever I watched Blake Clark in many Adam Sandler movies, his voice always reminded me of Varney. So it came to no surprise when Toy Story 3 was announced and we knew Slinky was returning that Clark would take over the role. A perfect choice.
