I find the lack of Dee Bradley Baker and Corey Burton disturbing.

This was a good list, although I'm shocked that Mel Blanc is #2

I'm sorry but this is an atrocious list in my opinion. I'm not saying the choices they made were bad, in fact I love a lot of these people and would put quite a few of them in my top 10. My main issue with this list is that it either doesn't go into a whole lot of detail about their range or careers, like with Rob Paulsen who's my favorite VA by the way, and they make comments that I feel just seem either out of place or just stupid. Like the Peter Cullen should continuously play Optimus. The main reason for that is, while it is one of the best animated perfromances ever in my opinion, he's getting so horribly typecast in the role is the problem. In the 80s and 90s Cullen had so much more work that showed his true range outside of Optimus like Monterey Jack and Meps in Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers for the first season, Eeyore up until 2011, Ironhide in the original 80s transformers, the list goes on. I feel if anything Transformers Age of Extinction should be his last time playing the role. Even Mark Hamill knew when to give up the mantle of Joker to other people. Also while Mel Blanc isn't my absolute favorite voice actor, Mel has left such an impact on voice acting that I think he deserves to be number 1 on all lists due to this.

I really don't think Kevin Conroy needed to be on this list. He's amazing as Batman but he's done nothing else aside from the caped crusader.

I would have to agree.

I haven't seen this video, but from what everyone here is saying I assume it's just some crap WatchMojo threw together for views, and in turn, money. I doubt they really know or care much about voice-acting in general and probably did little research on the subject.

First off their missing Dee Bradley Baker who is the best person to voice animals. Just give him any animal character in the world to voice and he mastered it.

I agree Conroy's only known for Batman. I don't know him voicing any other character than him.

Also they do throw them together for views. For example the Top 10 Anime mostly had mainstream titles that they might not even watch it was only on popularity.

From previous top 10 lists, it seems that WatchMojo doesn't necessarily choose everything based on what they like, it's usually based on some statistic somewhere that has no relevance to quality (like Nielson ratings or Box Office Gross, which are both quantitative) then from that they trickle down to what they heard of, what they like more, and usually what was part of pop culture in the 80s and early 90s. What I mean from that is that the list are for the average joe who really don't know much about the subject at hand aside from what was generally popular. So while the lists will sometimes have things on it that people who are fans of the subject matter can agree on, the lists aren't designed for those people.

On a side not one thing I found hilarious was from the superhero origins series on WatchMojo (which I do kind of like) they did one for the Flash and Robin and chose Jay Garrick and Dick Grayson as the versions they told the origins of, the proceeded to have all of the cutaway footage feature Barry Allen and Jason Todd instead...oops.
