EDITOR'S OPINION

Dave Goelz: The original, and most-oft reprised performer for Honeydew, Dave gives yet another classic, instantly recognizable performance. 

Howie Mandel: I'm sorry, Howie, but all I hear is the same "child voice" as your other characters. :( 

Dave Coulier: Dave's usually pretty spot-on with his Baby voice, but I think Bunsen is one of his weaker ones. He's stronger than Howie, I'll admit.

Bob Bergen: The performance isn't bad, but the voice doesn't exactly scream "Bunsen" to me. 

Bill Barretta: Bill shared the role with Dave in the 1996 Muppets Tonight show. He's a pretty good match for Dave, but I think it's just a tad nasally (he actually makes me think of a well-mannered and calm Denzel Crocker).

Eric Bauza: Eric's known for his great skill at impersonations and mimicry. The voice has a similar tone to other characters he's voiced, but without being spot-on to 'older' Honeydew, the voice is a good match for what one would assume an infant Honeydew would sound like.

Dave Goulz's getting my vote, but the others range from great to suitable replacements.

Dave Goelz sets the standard for Dr Honeydew, and does a great job with the performance. The skit that this clip is sourced from is quite hilarious and does a great job setting up what his character is.

Dave Coulier who usually has pretty good voices for the Baby characters, isn't quite as spot on here.

Howie Mandel can't seem to escape from Bobby from Bobby's World, as it finds a way to creep into his other performances. This role is no exception.

Bob Bergen sounds pretty average here. Not his best performance I'll admit.

Bill Baretta is known for being pretty flawless when it comes to his impersonations, but this one is not as flawless. Tyler basically summarized it here.

Eric Bauza is really great as the Baby version of Honeydew. Based off of his work here, he could work as the adult version just fine.

I'm voting for Dave Goelz, with Bauza in second place & Bill in third.

Dave gets my vote, and Bill and Eric do great jobs at mimicking him. Bob doesn't even sound halfway like Dave, and the baby versions flat out suck.
