I was expecting old-timey people to populate the bottom 15 or so.

GAH! I can't beleive I forgot the trailer guy! He definitely should have been on my list.

Which movie was it where the teaser trailer was just him trying to do his typical trailer lines and getting fired?

I'll admit, I spaced on David Cross, but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have made my final cut. He doesn't have much work under his belt and he's just using his own voice in the stuff I've seen. Happy-Time Harry and the fruit episode are two of my all-time favorite ATHF episodes.

I think the "in a world' guy is deserving of a spot, although I spaced him out as well. He's kinda like the Haunted House guy; such a signature sound.

Yeah, I stopped watching ATHF after the first couple seasons, but out of all the episodes I rewatched Dumber Dolls holds up the best.  But yeah, Cross is good but he doesn't have a lot of vocal range.

Yay! Steve Blum made the cut! In addition to the roles listed in the entry, he's been knocking it out of the park as Starscream in Transformers Prime:

Holloway's voice work in animated films began in 1941, when he was heard in Dumbo (1941), as the voice of Mr. Stork. Walt Disney considered him for the voice of Sleepy in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), but chose Pinto Colvig instead. Holloway was the voice of the adult Flower in Bambi (1942), the narrator of the Antarctic penguin sequence in The Three Caballeros (1944) and the narrator in the Peter and the Wolf sequence of Make Mine Music (1946). He was the voice of the The Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland (1951), the narrator in Goliath II (1960), Kaa in The Jungle Book (1967), and Roquefort in The Aristocats (1970). He is perhaps best remembered as the voice of Winnie the Pooh in Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh featurettes. He was honored as a 'Disney Legend' in 1991, the first one to ever receive the award in the Voice category.

44 [Tie] Phil Hendrie   

(25 points, 1 lists of 16, highest ranking: #1 DB Barnes)
Fan Favorite:
The Phil Hendrie Show –  Bob Green

Additional Roles
Team America: World Police – The computer I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. and the Chechen terrorist
Futurama – The Waterfall Family

From Wikipedia:
Philip Stephen Hendrie (born September 1, 1952) is an American radio personality, actor and voice over artist. He is best known as a radio satirist and the host of The Phil Hendrie Show, nationally syndicated radio show, heard on about 100 stations, that is driven by his cast of fictional characters, all of whom he created and plays on air. As host, Hendrie sets up a topic and discusses it with one of his characters who seamlessly takes the discussion beyond obvious social parameters. Feeding the circle of social satire are the callers who are real and genuinely passionate about what Hendrie’s “guest” is saying. Loyal fans enjoy being in on the ruse as Hendrie orchestrates a parody of his own profession – talk radio.
On April 27, 2006, Hendrie announced he was leaving radio to pursue his acting career on a full-time basis. At the time, he was working as an actor on NBC’s sitcom “Teachers.” His acting resume already included film and television roles in Trey Parker’s and Matt Stone’s motion picture, Team America: World Police, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Richard Appel’s A.U.S.A., and Judd Apatow’s North Hollywood. He also starred in Steve Levitan’s Phil Hendrie and wrote, executive produced and starred in Phil at the Gate, as well as performing a myriad of character voices on several episodes of the animated television shows “King of the Hill” and “Futurama.”

44 [Tie] Phil Harris

(25 points, 1 lists of 16, highest ranking: #1 Cole Stratton)
Fan Favorite:
The Jungle Book and Talespin –  Baloo

Additional Roles
The Aristocats – Thomas O’Malley
Disney's Robin Hood – Little John

From Wikipedia:
Phil Harris (born Wonga Philip Harris;[1] June 24, 1904 – August 11, 1995) was an American singer, songwriter, jazz musician, actor, and comedian. Though successful as an orchestra leader, Harris is remembered today for his recordings as a vocalist, and his voice work in animation.
He worked as a vocalist and voice actor for animated films, lending his distinctive voice to the Disney animated features The Jungle Book (1967) as Baloo, The Aristocats (1970) as Thomas O'Malley and Robin Hood (1973) as Little John (another bear). The Jungle Book was his greatest success in the years at the end of his radio career. As Baloo the Sloth Bear, he sings one of the film's showstoppers, "The Bare Necessities," a performance that introduced Harris to a new generation of young fans who had no awareness of his radio fame. He famously appears to sing the word 'founder' instead of 'fonder' (after the line 'wherever I wander') in this song although this is simply the Southern pronunciation of the word 'fonder' whimsically exaggerated and should not be construed as a mistake. The recording still survives in TV adverts today. Harris also joined Louis Prima in "I Wanna Be Like You," delivering a memorable scat singing performance. The Aristocats features Harris as alley cat Abraham de Lacey Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley, who joins in the film's showstopper, "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat," with Scatman Crothers. In Robin Hood, Harris's Little John sings the popular anti-Prince John tune "The Phony King of England." In 1989, Harris briefly returned to Disney to once again voice Baloo, this time for the cartoon series TaleSpin. But after a few recording sessions he was replaced by Ed Gilbert. His last role was in 1991 film Rock-a-Doodle, directed by Don Bluth, as the friendly, laid-back Basset Hound Patou.
