Voice Compare » Winnie the Pooh » Eeyore

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Eeyore with sound clips and images.
Eeyore is a grey donkey that is always losing his tail. He is best friends with Winnie the Pooh. He is famous for his rather gloomy, depressed and pessimistic outlook on pretty much every situation that the gang encounter.

EDITOR'S OPINION

This one is fairly easy for me.  When I think of Eeyore I think of the Peter Cullen version.  To me Cullen captured that gloomy voice absolutely perfectly.  Gregg Berger did a top notch imitation of Cullen and is probably my second favorite.  Ralph Wright the original should get props though for setting the tone for all of the other voice actors and I do say his take has a special charm to it. I have to say I am rather disappointed with the new voice of Eeyore who will make his debut later this year. Feinberg and Gans seem to be missing the mark and are easily the two worst.

1st: Cullen, 2nd: Berger, 3rd: Wright, 4th: Luckey, 5th: Feinberg, 6th: Gans

I'm Surprised Greg Berger didn't voice him in the 2011 Winnie the Pooh Film.

I know I am commenting a lot on this, but I wish to give an updated opinion.

1 Ralph Wright
I loved Wright's take. He was heartwarming.
2 Peter Cullen
Basically an updated Wright. Love it too.
3 Ron Feinberg
Decent casting choice, and worked in the special.
4 Gregg Berger
A great imitation of Cullen.
5 Bud Luckey
Eh. That music in the back is depressing too.
6 Ron Gans
Awful.
7 Bil Baird.
Didn't really work.

I think the Pixar Animator did Eeyore as Peter Cullen was unavailable, too busy doing Optimumus Prime. He makes Eeyore sound older, being believed that he's the Oldest Member in the Group.

Bil Baird's tone is good, but the voice itself is horrendously wrong. Just like Franz's Pooh, he sounds like just a guy.

Yeesh the Shirley Temple Eeyore is HIDEOUS

And congrats now Ron Gans sounds like the perfect Eeyore next to Bil(my favourite is still Greg Berger)

Peter Cullen is really good in the role and he's the voice I associate with Eeyore.

Gregg Berger is also very good and so is Ralph Wright. Ron Feinberg is alright and although the clip of Bud Lucky is very short, he seems good, too.

The other two nope.

The charm of Eeyore is that he is just so down you can't help but feel bad for him and while playing Eeyore in a more sarcastic sort of way might seem good on paper, he kinda comes off as a jerk because of it so its hard to feel bad for him.
Cullen just nails the role

And this might seem strange but I swear I always thought Sam Elliot was the voice of Eeyore growing up

Oh well, it seems Bill has become my new least favourite Eeyore voice.

Congrats Ron Gans, you've been promoted slightly.

@pete Fair point but I refuse to change my opinion with 1 exception, he gets some respect for being the 1st voice of Eeyore.

When I first heard Bud Lucky on the Pixar short "Boundin" I thought "he would make a great Eeyore". Still my favorite is the original.

Have to give it to Peter Cullen hes is simply the voice of Eeyore i grew up with.

That said Ralph Wrights vocie still holds up and Gregg Berger was suprisingly good.

Ron Feinberg,ugh,he wasnt even trying to sound mody or droning.

Bud Luckey ,sorry but ther just something about his voice that doesnt sit well with me,probably because i find it to be to old and gravelly

Ron Gans,what the hell?I cant be the only one who think that he soundss like some kind of troll or demon,but then again look at his picture

Disney canned Peter from doing Eeyore again. Why? He was the best at the voice out of every1. I hope Disney regret it & I think what they did was not fair & wrong. Personally I believe that voice actors should only be replaced when they want 2 leave, have other commitments or when they die.

1. Peter Cullen - The Eeyore I most remember from my childhood. He's just perfect.
2. Ralph Wright - The original voice and the one the rest aspire to imitate.
3. Bud Luckey - Perfect casting. He's actually probably the most similar to Ralph Wright's voice!
4. Gregg Berger - He never worked that well for me. The voice was a bit too light.
5. Ron Feinberg - Decent but forgettable.
6. Ron Gans - He sounds scary! Just like the actor's picture!

Peter is the Eeyore I grew up with so he's my fav pretty much although Gregg is a close 2nd. Yeah the reason why that is is because he sounds so much like Peter cause I could never tell the difference between the 2 but I learned Gregg does all the video games (excluding Piglet's Big Game) so with that info it makes it easier 2 identify them both.

Ralph voiced Eeyore in the originals and did a brilliant job.

Ron F only did him once and wasn't too bad.

Ron G was not the best in fact my least favourite out of all the voices for Eeyore.

Bud did the 2011 movie and was pretty good, I hope 2 see more of him in the future if Peter doesn't return that is.

They all were good, and i'm having trouble choosing, but aye aye aye, Gans was horrible! His voice was just deep and gruff...that's it. Nothing like Eeyore's character.

First place goes to Cullen, who really does a good job of bringing out both sides of Eeyore's personality: The gloomy one and the rare burst of happiness. Wright does have a wonderful baritone, though. They're my first two choices.

Having just seen the film Bud Luckey did okay but Cullen will always be the best.

The only reason Peter Cullen wasn't in Kingdom Hearts 2 or the new film is because he was busy with Transformers both times. There's not much of Bud Luckley's clip to judge him but I don't know why Disney didn't just get Gregg Berger to do the voice since he can do the best impression.

@pete Peter Cullen wasn't in the film because he was busy. According to a BotCon panel Disney told him that he was no longer going to be Eeyore. As for Kingdom Hearts II, I have no clue.

@pete Walt Disney wasn't corrupt. You obviously don't know much about him. You have it the other way around, Micheal Eisner was the corrupt businessman who strayed from Walt's original purpose.

@pete You obviously didn't hear the interview from a former employee saying he was quote a tyrant. Yeah I don't believe in the anti-semitism or stuff like that. I heard he hated Nazis actually and was actually a really nice guy but when it came to his work he was downright ruthless.

Bud Luckey I think will only do the voice of Eeyore in the film
After all the film makes Eeyore a year older which explains his low voice
