If Janyse Jaud ever voiced Adult Goku in that so-called "proper" dub, I'm quite sure that most people would never become fans of the series. A woman voicing Goku may work in Japanese, but it would never work in English
I agree with the first statement, & while I don't necessarily agree with the second, it's a cultural thing & deserves its own topic. I personally had an issue with finding a childish-sounding guy in the Vancouver talent pool, as I don't really watch cartoons or play games, I just like listening to VA's & voice clips. There are about five guys maybe, that could do Goku in that talent pool: Richard Cox, Matt Hill, Samuel Vincent, Brad Swaile, & I think that's really it.
In terms of LA, I was thinking Greg Cipes, just watch interviews of him & listen to his voice, & you'll see why. For a meager budget, I agree with Nitro & Phantom that Joshua Seth would be really good.
What's funny is that there are endless abysses of threads dedicated to either bashing or nostalgifying the old dub (or appreciating the recent improvements)...yet there are very, very few threads on this site which promote
more integration of the show into more audiences & worldwide success. It's like no one cares about this show's dub aside from as a "historical artifact".
I appreciate several of the Japanese actors' performances...but it's not like I wish for this show to stay "foreign w/third-party licensing". I mean that's what ends up happening anyway, but it's the spirit of the forum that occasionally annoys me (although it's a damn sight better than YT comments, that's for sure).
