Default Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

Kirby's oft-forgotten anime adaptation. Oh yeah, and 4Kids dubbed it.
We know all the Japanese VAs, so I'm focusing on the dub cast.

There are two sets of English credits I could find. One is from season 1 (that is, episodes 1-44), and one is from the movie finale.

For the first batch:

Voice Director
Andrew Rannells

Lead Voices
Ted Lewis
Kerry Williams
Kayzie Rogers
Makiko Oomoto


Additional Voices by
Amy Birnbaum
Maddie Blaustein
Dan Green
Tara Jayne
Kevin Kolack
David Lapkin
Jerry Lobozzo
Ellen Lee
Nappy
Mike Pollock
Andrew Rannells
Eric Stuart


And the second:
Voice Directors
Ron London
Andrew Rannells
Julie Rath


Lead Voices
Ted Lewis
Kerry Williams
Kayzie Rogers
Makiko Oomoto


Additional Voices by
Amy Birnbaum
Maddie Blaustein
Dan Green
Michael Haigney
Kevin Kolack
David Lapkin
Jerry Lobozzo
Nappy
Lisa Ortiz
Mike Pollock
Andrew Rannells
Eric Stuart
Veronica Taylor


So yeah, it's a mess. Especially when combined with the fact that this series hasn't had as much research done on it as 4Kids' other dubs like Yu-Gi-Oh or Sonic X or Pokémon, and the fact that I haven't been able to find the credits for the remaining episodes (meaning some potential VAs might be missing) and the fact that some voice actors left down the line. At least 4Kids VAs are fairly recognizable by ear.

Sites like the Kirby Wikia and Absolute Anime have some additional (but dubious, some aren't listed in either credits list) credits up, but here's what's confirmed.

Kirby: Makiko Oomoto (his English speaking VA, like when he says "Name, Tiff!" is up in the air though. I always thought it was just Oomoto dubbing herself like in SSB4, but some sites have a different VA listed.)
Tiff: Kerry Williams
Tuff: Kayzie Rogers
Meta Knight: Eric Stuart
King Dedede: Ted Lewis
Escargoon: Ted Lewis
Waddle Doo: Maddie Blaustein
Salesguy: Dan Green
Nightmare/eNeMeE: Andrew Rannells
Blade Knight: Eric Stuart
Mayor Blustergas: Mike Pollock
Tokkori: Kevin Kolack
Chef Kawasaki: Maddie Blaustein
Tuggle: Maddie Blaustein
Melman: Maddie Blaustein
Biblio: Maddie Blaustein
Gus: Eric Stuart
Samo: Mike Pollock

...And that's about it. We have to figure out everyone else. It may seem like a lot already, but there's dozens of more characters to tackle. Told you this dub is a mess.
