Surprise! I wasn't going to write up rankings for Scrappy's voice actors initially, but I've been having so much fun seeing everybody's rankings throughout this week that I thought I'd do Scrappy's as well, given he was a main character across multiple series for ten years of the franchise.
3. Lennie Weinrib
I wouldn't say I hate Lennie's Scrappy portrayal, but the voice definitely can be a little obnoxious at times. I don't feel Lennie's voice in general is annoying, because fun fact, if you weren't aware, he also voices Uncle Nat from "The Loch Ness Mess" and I loved him there. I suppose it could have just been Lennie's personality though, as I have read some things about how he was a very "in your face" type of person to work with. If you didn't know, he was one of the few voice actors who didn't willingly step down from a voice role on this series. He was fired from the role after the first Scrappy series after demanding his salary to be raised to an outrageous amount. I don't have anything particularly against Lennie, I just found the other two portrayals better and with this one, it could be just a little bit annoying at times.
2. Scott Innes
Although Scott kinda catered more to Lennie's Scrappy voice than Don's, somehow I didn't have that same "this is a little annoying at times" feeling that I did with Lennie's portrayal. Maybe it's because Scott was kind of trying to be annoying with the voice, since that's the characterization they were going for in the live-action film, but I would say I liked his voice just a little bit better than Lennie's.
1. Don Messick
Don's Scrappy voice fits the best for me, and is miles above the other two. I feel like Don's voice almost shifts his characterization to be overeager but in a sweet, misunderstood way, whereas Lennie's voice made him feel a little bit more in-your-face at times. This is interesting because I like The Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show better than The Richie Rich / Scooby-Doo Show which is when Don started voicing him, but I would say that's mainly because the mysteries were obviously far more solid in the former. Even if Don's portrayal still had Scrappy be kind of a scrapper (a pun may or may not have been intended there haha), I felt Don's voice allowed for a little bit gentler side of the character to come out. It allowed his character to evolve and become more toned-down in 13 Ghosts and the movies he was in, whereas I don't think that would have been as easy if Lennie was still the voice, in my opinion.
That about does it for my rankings of Scrappy! I hope you enjoyed this little surprise post, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of your rankings as well!
