I have to give this to Steve. Of course, he's the original, and he just made the character so likable with a great energy. It's also, I feel, a great example of how you can still show range while using a voice you've used before. Wembley is basically just the same voice Steve had already been using for Rizzo for years before the show even started, but if you hear Rizzo and Wembley side by side, they're nothing alike, because Steve changed his accent and delivery style so much that they don't feel at all similar. Steve truly is a great performer; the Muppets won't feel the same without him.


Bob doesn't really gel for me. It's one of those casting choices that makes sense on paper (after all, who better to play the stuttering, insecure wimp character than Porky Pig?), but in the actual show, it didn't turn out quite as well as it should have. Of the five Fraggles, Bob has the weakest impression, sounding very little like Steve at all and more like a weird mix of Porky and Tweety. Also, in terms of delivery, compared to Steve, Bob just feels flat and somewhat low-energy. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, per se, when taken as its own voice; it's just not a good impression, which makes it feel out of place compared to the other four who match their respective Muppets nearly perfectly.

Steve Whitmire is the best voice for Wembley. He nails all the traits that Wembley is known for. Especially when it comes to how excitable he can be.

Bob Bergen's performance is all well & good, but it definitely sounds like a prototype voice for Daffy Duck. I guess in some way, it kind of works.
