As the Top-Selling doll of all-time, Barbie needs no description. For over 50 years girls everywhere have had the enjoyment of owning, dressing and playing with a variety of Barbie dolls. However, it took until the 1980s for us to put a 'voice' to the classic character.
We first heard Barbie's voice on a television special in 1987 entitled, Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World. In this performance she was voiced by Sharon Lewis the voice of Broo from the 80s hit The Raccoons. From 1994 spanning nearly 8 years, Chris Anthony Landowne voiced Barbie in over 100 toys and dolls, in additional to a website and commercials. In both the Dance! Workout with Barbie Video as well as in all of the Toy Story related appearances Barbie was voiced by Jodi Benson, best known as Ariel in the Little Mermaid. Then came the direct-to-video movie series in which we heard Kelly Sheridan voice Barbie in 17 straight films only to hand over the reigns to Diana Kaarina in 2010.
Barbie has also had a voice in the video game world. In the 90s her game voice was provided by Chris Anthony. She has also been voiced in video games by Danielle Judovits and Anndi McAfee but unfortunately we have not been able to find audio to include these two in our voice compare for now.
