If you grew up in the 90s, you’ll no doubt remember several memorable roles of comedy legend Gilbert Gottfried. He voiced commercials, as well as feature-length movies and cartoons. His voice was one of the most memorable things from my childhood. So, when I caught wind of Gottfried’s passing, it hit me hard. Harder than I thought it would.
In honor of his memory, here is a list of some of the most memorable roles Gottfried played. These are ones that stuck with me; ones that I’m sure you’ll remember fondly as well.
9 Barnyard Buddy “Back at the Barnyard” (2007)
8 Santa Claus in “The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy” (2003)
7 Dr. Bender “Fairly Oddparents” (2001)
6 Kraang Subprime “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (2012)
5 Mr. MXYZPTLK on “Justice League Action” (2016)
