    Thanks.

    Yes, it's a pretty awesome and informative interview.

    Yes, he thought his age would get the better of him, which is a shame, because it would have been great both for him and his audience if he went to a convention.

    Yeah, that acting, wow. Can't say I blame you for disliking the current English dub if the rest of the acting is like that. I still think her voice here definitely sounds better than the overly deep voice she used in her clip on this site, but either way Veronica Taylor was definitely better than both of those takes.

    4kids were definitely at their best in Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh. Heck even in some of their more reviled dubs like One Piece there definitely were some well cast actors and good performances here and there.

    Yeah, Veronica Taylor was iconic, got all his emotions down perfectly and was great at his funnier and more dramatic moments too.

    I've only heard Kayzie Rogers' clip here, it sounds weird hearing Tuff's voice coming out of Ash, but it sounds like she she has the rasp down well and probably could've improved if she stuck with the role. Seems like she had potential.

    Sarah Natochenny...her acting sounds really off, but otherwise she probably could work if Ash was 20, but since he never ages she just sounds way too deep for the role. I heard a few clips of her from BW and XY though, and I think she sounds a bit better there, but I haven't seen either BW or XY in their entirety, so I can't say for sure.

    Yeah, I brought that up in the compare once when Dean had even less votes than the Malaysian actor. Even the Big Green cast, as flawed as they were, at least knew how to speak English. And then I just end up wondering why the Malaysian English dub even exists when they can't even speak the language. I think I heard somewhere that Malaysian English dubs are made over there to teach kids English, but as far as DBZ goes...yyyyeeeeaaaah, no.

    Yeah, Don Brown was much more natural, I watched both the Saban/Ocean TV edit and the uncut Pioneer/Ocean dubs of Tree of Might, and he's actually even better than I remembered, doing serious moments just as well as comedic moments.

    Dean Galloway wasn't too bad of a replacement either, especially in a dub where most of the other performances were off. Sean sounds really obnoxious and grating as all hell, and yet even then, it's sadly not even the worst performance on that comparison. *listens to the Malaysian clip and cringes*

    Yeah. His Bogart-esque voice with a very intellectual feel works perfectly for Mr. Fantastic.

    Yeah, it's really fascinating. I posted this 1979 interview, in which Mike talks with Chicago interviewer Chuck Schaden about his roots and his early life, as well as his career:

    Yes, I mean, June Foray, Alan Young and Janet Waldo have been playing roles since the old radio days and they're still going!!! Mike could have been there with them. He still seemed to have the energy to perform. Although he wouldn't have been able to go to conventions because, as his wife told me, even though he dreamed to meet his audience, going to a convention could prove to be pretty exhausting for poor Mike.

    Totally. Mohr was cool, but I prefer him as Mr. Fantastic a lot more.

    Yes, he was an interesting man. He had a lot of talents. He came from a family of performers and lawyers. He was originally going to become a lawyer, but he decided to follow his father's footsteps on the acting profession.

    Yeah, a lot of these people were taken too soon from us (in Mike's case, he retired too soon, because he didn't feel he had the same confidence he had in the old days, but I felt that he could still have done pretty awesome things in the business. I mean, he was 94, but he looked and sounded so young for his age, he had the appearance of being 60 or 70).

    Say, out of the two classic Green Lantern performers, which one is your favorite???

    IMO, Gerald Mohr was good, but Michael Rye was much, much better. I met Rye shortly before he died (you can find the whole story on the comments of his BTVA page) and I took notes during our conversation.

    He told me that Green Lantern was one of his favorite roles. From my notes, he told me that he didn't know anything about GL until he read the character description from the audition piece. Mike had a lot of talents, one of them was astronomy, and when he read the description, he jumped at the chance to audition. As he recalled, he got the role because the director thought his approach was a lot more unique. Another thing Mike loved to do was read, and he was a very big fan of Ian Fleming, so he said that his approach, instead of the typical superhero voice and performance, was more of an American James Bond in space, which I think is the reason why GL stood out more for me compared to the others.

    Totally.

    Yes, they have become severely underrated.
