12 Phil Hartman

(100 points, 8 lists of 16, highest ranking: #5 Anais.Butterfly)
Fan Favorite:
The Simpsons – Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure

From Wikipedia:
Philip Edward "Phil" Hartman (September 24, 1948 – May 28, 1998; né Hartmann) was a Canadian American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and graphic artist. Born in Brantford, Ontario, Hartman and his family moved to the United States when he was 10. Hartman joined the comedy group The Groundlings in 1975 and there helped comedian Paul Reubens develop his character Pee-wee Herman. Hartman co-wrote the screenplay for the film Pee-wee's Big Adventure and made recurring appearances on Reubens' show Pee-wee's Playhouse.

Hartman became famous in the late 1980s when he joined the sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. He won fame for his impressions, particularly of President Bill Clinton, and he stayed on the show for eight seasons. Called "the Glue" for his ability to hold the show together and help other cast members, Hartman won a Primetime Emmy Award for his SNL work in 1989. He has had frequent roles on The Simpsons as Lionel Hutz, Troy McClure, and others, and appeared in the films Houseguest, Sgt. Bilko, Jingle All the Way, and Small Soldiers.

Hartman had been divorced twice before he married Brynn Omdahl in 1987; the couple had two children together. However, their marriage was fractured, due in part to Brynn's drug use. On May 28, 1998, Brynn shot and killed her husband while he slept in their Encino, Los Angeles, home, then committed suicide several hours later. In the weeks following his death, Hartman was celebrated in a wave of tributes. Dan Snierson of Entertainment Weekly opined that Hartman was "the last person you'd expect to read about in lurid headlines in your morning paper...a decidedly regular guy, beloved by everyone he worked with".[1] Hartman was posthumously inducted in to Canada's Walk of Fame in 2012.

15 Jim Cummings

I had Jim Cummings at #2, but at the time I couldn't think of any speaking roles other than Winnie the Pooh. I know he's been in a ton of Disney stuff. You'll find his name somewhere in the credits of nearly everything Disney has done in the last 20 years. But I particularly like his singing:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/1NumofKJ9VQ" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/1NumofKJ9VQ</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Ocm8QdNR_d8" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/Ocm8QdNR_d8</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/XkU23m6yX04" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/XkU23m6yX04</a>

In Be Prepared, according to Jim Cummings himself, all the singing lines, including everything after "You won't get a sniff out of me" is him. There's also a story that Jeremy Irons blew out his voice after that line, but there's some contention over that. He also played Ed, who doesn't actually have any lines.

Also, is it just me, or does he look a lot like Kevin?

I love Jim Cummings as Hondo Ohnaka. He's my favorite thing to come out of the Clone Wars cartoons. :^)

Jim Cummings is great, but he didn't make my list.  The guy is EVERYWHERE!  And that's in an industry where people need to be everywhere.

I love Tom Kenny.  He was fantastic on Mr Show and has proven to be an amazing voice talent.  Though Spongebob is probably the one closest to his sensibility (despite being in the alt-comedy community, he always struck me as a fan of old-timey Vaudeville).  But my favourite is probably the Ice King.  I didn't choose him to represent since I think Spongebob is most representitive of Kenny, but with Ice King he knocks it out of the park every time in terms of humour and in later episodes proves he can make the character scary and sympathetic as well.

Hey, let's meet the LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!

Also, some great non-animated acting.

Fun fact: Tom Kenny (whom I spaced on) was for a few years the spokesperson for a local radio station. During their early days, you'd see TV commercials with him running energetically around downtown Denver promoting  them. (This was pre - Mr. Show.)

A few years later this same station had Phil Hartman come in and be their DJ for a weekend. so they've got two connections to the list.

Sadly, these days their format is "Mexican Language" so they're not nearly as interesting.

I had Rob at #2 BTW, and I suspect Cole did as well. I don't know if that changes the points or if you just typed 6 instead of 2.

Oh, and while Phil Hartman would have been a great Ice King, I'm pretty sure he wasn't on Adventure Time.
