    Okay, so let's say that the Opus movie finally gets off the ground and they decide to do it in full animation (two big stretches, I know). Who would you say is ideal for the voice acting talent for such a production?

    My picks:
    Michael Bell - Opus (obviously)
    Frank Welker - Bill the Cat, W.A. Thornhump, Rosebud the Basselope
    Hank Azaria - Steve Dallas, Hodge-Podge, Mr. Binkley
    Pamela Hayden - Milo Bloom, Oliver Wendell Jones
    Tress MacNeille - Michael Binkley, Bobbi Harlow
    Dan Castellaneta - Cutter John, Giant Purple Snorklewacker
    Maurice LaMarche - Portnoy
    John DiMaggio - Milquetoast the Cockroach
    Tara Strong - Yaz Pistachio, Ronald-Ann Smith

    You're absolutely right, J.B. -- Opus should sound like Michael Bell.

    Actually, I agree with most on your list. Welker would likely be a better Bill than Byner was originally, and LaMarche could easily give Portnoy the correct personality.

    Here are my picks:

    Norm MacDonald - Snorklewacker
    Victoria Jackson - Quiche Lorraine
    Betty White - Mrs. Dallas
    Grey DeLisle - Yaz Pistachio
    Billy West - Otis Oracle, Banana Jr. 6000

    I still can't place Limekiller or Lola Granola, however.

    Actually, i always thought rosebud would sound more like big dog from 2 stupid dogs, so i'd have brad garrett (who played big dog) be rosebud. And is it wrong that i somehow see yeardley smith playing alf mushpie? And we still need someone to play grandpa and grandma bloom, reynelda,senator bedfellow, rabies,blondie, the bear, and the bloom picauyne/beacon boss.
    (if we're going to have yaz pistachio, we might as well have some more obscure characters). Also, "I'm a boinger" and "u stink but i love you" NEED to be on the soundtrack (not cover versions, but the actual flexi-disc versions from 1987)

    Everyone's forgetting Rosebud is a woman, or at least has been since 1988.

    Yeah, but I always envisioned her as having a male voice anyway. It adds to the humor, I think.

    BTW,,Banana Jr. 6000 doesnt really "talk". In the few strips where he's seen facing frontwards, his "dialogue" is in the form of words printed on the screen.
