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 OPINION

Given 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.

Jim Varney wins out, but damn, Blake Clark emulates his voice perfectly. I wouldn't be able to tell it WASN'T him if I didn't know he'd passed away.

It's a shame Jim Varney died after Toy Story 2. He knew how to play a good character. Thank goodness Blake Clark was a friend of his or else Disney Pixar might've considered never giving Slinky a major role again.

Why do the clips stop without finishing.

Varney gets my vote; he brought more personality to the role.

I definitely have to side with Jim Varney but Blake Clark is definitely going to be a nice replacement

Both have done a really good job performing the voice, but Varney just barely wins.

I like both! I can't really tell the difference. Blake was close friends with Jim and think Jim would have been happy that Blake filled in for him.

Jim Varney R.I.P. I grew up with his character Slinky Dog. I give him great credit for playing Slinky. Also, credit to Blake Clark his voice was really good.

I like both equally. Jim is the original, but Blake sounds just like him.

@johnathan

It was already heartbreaking how many of the original characters were axed in the 3 movie. I thought Blake was a good choice; he made me wonder whether they'd kept some of Jim's old voice clips somewhere.

I'm a huge fan of Jim Varney and I think he's the 4 EVER SLINKY DOG! Blake Clark did a good job as Slinky in the 3rd movie and sounds alot like Jim Varney but he just didn't have Slinky's spirit like Jim. If it was me working on the film I would of absented Slinky Dog from the film because I just don't think anyone would of done him as good as Jim Varney whether they sound like Jim or not. They shouldn't of recast the role but that's just my opinion! GOOD JOB JIM VARNEY FOR BRINGING SLINKY DOG TO LIFE! JIM VARNEY IS MY HERO 4 EVER and the 4 EVER SLINKY DOG!

They're both great, but I prefer Blake's version of Slinky.

Both were great, and Blake Clark sounds a LOT like Jim Varney! But Jim Varney is who originated the character, so I guess I choose him.
