Lou Pickles

Comparison of the voice actors who have been the voice of Lou Pickles with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Rugrats

Lou Pickles is one of the prominent supporting characters in the Rugrats series whom has been in the series since right from the start. Grandpa Lou is the beloved grandfather of Tommy, Dil and Angelica Pickles (and is the father of Stu and Drew Pickles) and he is quite the consummate "young at heart" old man. Ol' Grandpa Lou would gladly tell stories about hist past just about any chance he gets (in which he often uses the number 15 in various ways) but despite his adventurous personality he does have plenty of health problems such as achy bones and is frequently asleep when he is suppose to be watching the kids. For an unknown amount of years Lou was a widower and he does love his late first wife (though he doesn't seem to have any issues over that) but over the course of the franchise he has a 2nd wife named Lulu in which they love each-other very much.

David Doyle voiced Lou Pickles for the first few seasons. Following his death, Joe Alaskey took over the role.

Today on the Rugrats VC section we take a look at the beloved elder patriarch of the Pickles family... GRANDPA LOU PICKLES!

David Doyle- David's voice and performance for the role felt VERY Natural as they both suit on how much of a lovable energetic Grandpa Ol' Lou Pickles is. So in other words the late great David Doyle's work as Lou was another classic example of the voice work in the show.

Joe Alaskey- Joe's voice was also quite a natural fit for the role as it sounds similar to David's voice but different (as Joe's voice sounds a bit gruffer and scratchier) but it still genuinely works with the role well. Joe's performance also suited Lou's energetic but still rather elderly persona rather well and was a fine alternative to the late David Doyle.

Overall I am going with a tie as both of these guys did very well with the role here.
