OK folks today we get a VC for this Autobot known for his love of nature here by the name of Hound.

In the original G1 series he is voiced by voice actor Ken Sansom (whom is mostly known for voicing Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh). Hound is a generally friendly easy going guy whom had a light southern accent (well definitely light compared to the likes of Peter Cullen's work as Ironhide and to a lesser extent Optimus Prime) in which Ken's performance did work pretty well for the role. While Hound pretty much got demoted to an extra in the 2nd season of the original series he actually had a pretty good amount which did give Ken a good chance to have a fairly memorable performance for Hound which is while above average when it came to the performances in this show in general is a fairly good example of the voice acting in the original series nevertheless.

Hound only had a one-scene role in the first episode of the Transformers Headmasters series with the infamously reviled RTM-1 dub that was made in Hong Kong. While Hound's English voice in that series was fairly generic but it was tolerable enough (and to be fair this clip shows all of Hound's dialogue in this series, apparently Hound was lucky to get any lines at all).

In the Japan-only PS2 game Transformers Tataki he was voiced by fairly known English-speaking Japan-residing VA Peter Von Gomm and I actually thought it was one of the better performances in that game. Aside from the somewhat surprising light profanity Peter's voicework for Hound was very much in spirit with Ken's handiwork and its probably one of Peter's better performances.

And last but not least for the Transformers the Movie game (but only in the PSP version) he is voiced by Daniel "TFTMG Starscream" Ross whose performance was decent. This version of Hound is designed to be the "Brainy Straight Man" buddy to this game's version of Trailbreaker whom is a bit more of a "Wild Card" and Daniel's performance does do the job well enough.

Overall I am going with Ken first, Peter at a surprisingly close second, Daniel and a decent third and his RTM-1 Headmasters dub voice at a okay but distant fourth.

If They gave Hound a different design, do you guys think Chris Hemsworth would be good for the character?

I'm sort of waiting for people's opinion's on John Goodman's role as Hound. I thought he did excellent job on the voice.

I've always loved Sansom's performance the first time I was ever introduced to Hound. I've always thought of his voice as very heroic. Naturally, I vote for him.

I definetely goe with Ken Sansom with this one, particually because this is my favourite incarnation of the Hound,s character.
I dont say others are too bad, but i simply think Ken originated characted and made him memorable.
It such a pain in the ass that Hound had so little rememorable roles after More Than Meets The Eye Trilogy.
But then again, if it werent for Bumblebee to take on spotlights, maybe we would have gotten used to see Green Helpful Friend instead of Yellow Helpful Friend for future of Transformers.
Am i only one whom finds that ironic?
