    What is your favourite Frank Welker non-TRANSFORMERS role?

    He appears to enjoy playing monkeys a lot – RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (the monkey), ALADDIN (Abu), DEXTER’S LAB (Monkey) and CURIOUS GEORGE (I just came across it one day and loved it.) More specifically (for me anyway):

    SCOOBY-DOO – I think it was his earliest work, and one he stuck to ever since: the voice of Fred Jones (he later took over as the voice of the canine hero Scooby-Doo too, but Welker IS Fred). I think Fred might be his nicest, most everyday role ever, considering the rest of his amazing roles.

    GREMLINS – Stripes, the leader of a pack of supernatural creatures that take over a town in the 1984 horror comedy (and alongside Peter Cullen too, who took a supporting role). It was actually a great role, combining creepiness with comedy:

    INSPECTOR GADGET – Dr Claw, the good Inspector’s nefarious archenemy who leads a criminal organization called MAD. This was a great role, as well as a honorary mention considering this voice IS Soundwave’s voice. “Next time, Gadget. Next time...”

    THE SMURFS – He took over from Don Messick as the henchcat of the villainous wizard Gargamel. It was a worthy succession:

    MADAGASCAR 3 – Sonya the bear, King Julien’s lover. These clips say it all:

    Sharptooth from The Land Before Time. Not a voice roll, but still epic. He's even done the sounds for all the sharpteeth in the rest of the sequels.

    Awesome dr.Claw.

    In TV series "Dungeons & Dragons"he voiced Uni the unicorn.
    Welker is also very talented in making sounds of different creatures.

    That certainly explains that despite voices, visual schemes and general quality varying wildly, why the Sharpteeth still sounded so right.

    So on that note, I'll throw in my vote for Dr. Claw and Sharptooth.

    Coming into this thread, "I wonder if anyone's going to say Nib--oh."

    Nibbler.

    Shit, he's voiced like 90% of animated characters.

    I gotta agree with some of you; the Sharptooth scared the shit out of me as a kid. So I guess that's my favorite animal character besides the Gremlins.

    "Sentient" character wise, Fred and Scooby Doo.

    Another vote for Nibbler. It's made even more awesome by the fact that he does both the high pitched "cute critter" noises and the regular "announcer guy" voice.
