I voted for Don Rickles, but I really can not separate these 3:

Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head
Tom Hanks as Woody
John Ratzenberger as Hamm

John Ratzenberger as Hamm was always the one that I thought fit the best.

I went with John Ratzenberger, but it's a darn tough choice. All of them embody those characters so well I can't imagine them otherwise (excepting Bo Peep who I don't really feel like belongs beside the rest).

Going through my marathon, I'm having a better appreciation for John Ratzenberger's ability to make great comedy out of rather ordinary lines.

Varney and (maybe) Potts are the only two I don't care for. The rest are fantastic, but I had to go with Ratzenberger.

This is a great poll question, and I will return when I have rewatched the film. :)

Impossible to choose.  I just went with Don Rickles, because the casting was inspired.  But Wallace Shawn probably did the most with his character.
