What is the most loved Whit? For me, it's Paul Herlinger. He was the Whit that I grew up on :-)

The new Whit just doesn't sit well with me at all. That's just me......How about you guys?

I like Paul Herlinger because he's the one I also grew up with. He didn't seem too old (as I portrayed Hal Smith), but just perfect for the job of Whit.
Andre Stojka is right behind him, because I think he portrays Whit fairly well, though I wish he wasn't so laughy. It seems like he laughs a wee bit too much.
And finally is Hal Smith. He was OK, but just not a Whit I truly enjoyed.

I grew up listening to Paul Herlinger; and I do like him, but Hal Smith was the best. Andre is alright, but not more than that.

Hal Smith has always been Whit for me. After years, Paul Herlinger grew on me and I think he did a wonderful job. Andre Stojka does a great job and his voice is also growing on me. But Hal--he was the original. And he was the Whit I grew up with. He will always be the true Whit that other Whits try to be like.

Hal Smith.

Hal Smith felt as my own grandfather, since I had none growing up. While Paul did a wonderful job, Hal will always be Whit to me. Paul was never able to imitate his warm laugh, although he did add new and many good aspects to Whit. :)

Andre is fine, I suppose. I seldom listen to anything beyond album 30, so I can't judge too harshly.

Lately in the new episodes, I've really enjoyed Andre Stojka, so I voted for him.

Paul Herlinger is my favorite. I grew up listening to him. Clara, the Novacom saga, No Way Out, Silent Night... I simply love his voicing in episodes like these. That being said, Hal Smith is fantastic as well. He's a very close second. Andre Stojka isn't bad, but his version of Whit takes a while to get used to.

To me Paul and Hal's voices were very close. So close in fact that I can't tell that much of a difference. Therefore a tie exists between those two. As for Andre, I like him, but Paul and Hal are the ones I've been used to forever. They'll always remain my favorite.

Easily Hal Smith. For one thing, the first real of fandom is THE ORIGINAL IS ALWAYS THE BEST no matter what! ;)

But regardless, yes, I still like him the best. Clearly he is the one the others try to imitate... Andre is trying to channel Hal, not Paul. Like someone basically already said, Paul had practically the exact same voice, but he could never totally emulate the warmth and heart of Hal Smith. Andre now is sort of the opposite... the voice isn't quite there like it was for Paul but he injects some of the same inflections that Hal had that Paul never really picked up on. Paul's Whit to me almost always just sounded really tired, where Hal was more alive and Andre is practically Whit on crack. \:D/

That all being said I don't want to diminish the contributions of either Paul or Andre... Paul is at this point my second favorite, and he really did a remarkable job considering the shoes he was stepping into... and he is the longest running Whit to date, which I'm sure explains why he is the favorite of so many. Andre of course has barely just begin... I didn't care for him at all when he first started on the Passages thing, but he has grown on me and I think improved to a great extent; although he definitely is more different than Paul was from Hal.

Definitely Hal Smith. He had such a great, warm voice and laugh. I always felt like he was the perfect grandfather/mentor, and you just want to give him a hug. \:D/ Paul was good too, but I just always prefer Hal.

I think Hal Smith will be the quintessential Whit, no matter how you look at it. He was the person who defined who Whit was and should be. Hence my vote in the poll. That said, Paul Herlinger did an awesome job, especially first off in "The Search for Whit." I think later on, he got tired and cranky (was it just me or did not seem himself in the Novacom saga?) which I think diminished his impact. But overall, very good. Andre....Eeesh. :anxious:

^Yeah I criticize Paul's lack of emotion and sounding tired, however starting off in Search for Whit and early on there, he embodied Hal Smith moreso. I guess being over 80 years old will have a toll on a person, though. >_>

My favorite would be Paul Herlinger because that was the Whit I grew up with. Hal Smith comes in a close second. I like Andre Stojka's voice too, but it seems like he laughs too much.
