  • don't bring around the cloud to rain on my parade.

  • Hey, everyone, I'm Rebecca and welcome to watch Mojo.

  • Today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 Robin Williams impressions.

  • This is Elmer Fudd, sings her friend Julia Childs, and I realized I would scare even a hyperactive child.

  • Not so funny when it's your mother, is it for this list?

  • We're looking at some of this comedic legends most memorable moments of mimicry throughout his career.

  • This includes performances on various talk shows, bits from a stand up specials or major motion picture rolls.

  • So be sure to let us know in the comments, which Robin Williams impression puts a smile on your face.

  • All right, let's get into it.

  • Number 10 Golf and the Scottish Robin Williams live on Broadway.

  • Who else could lament our lack of understanding of the Scottish accent while simultaneously reenacting the invention of golf in all its absurdity?

  • Ease.

  • Here's my idea.

  • First sport e.

  • A.

  • Knock a ball in a gofer hole Known for poking fun at many different cultures, Williams seemed to have an affinity for parodying the Scots.

  • Ah, what the bullet goes in a gopher hole?

  • Oh, You mean like Crooked From Mrs Doubtfire is beloved Glaswegian esque accent to this featured bit from his 2000 to 1 man show Live on Broadway.

  • There's no denying it all came from a place of love whacking away, and each time you miss, you feel like you're gonna have a stroke.

  • Sources state that Robin had genuinely developed an affection towards Scotland after first visiting in the 19 seventies, cultivating great respect for the people and culture.

  • I have a Number nine Julia Child to Margaret Thatcher, Days O'Connor Tonight and combine them and got this gentle, gentle voice of Mrs Doubtfire who could still get fleshing out.

  • A character takes months of research and various attempts at voice and mannerisms.

  • For Robin, it was initially playing around with the distinctive accents of two of the world's most influential and imposing women that helped him eventually settle on the sweet yet commanding Scottish speech of Mrs Doubtfire.

  • I first started doing.

  • The voice was very much like that.

  • Julia Childs and I realized that would scare even a hyperactive child during a guest spot on the British variety show Dez O'Connor.

  • Tonight, Williams explained how he first started with a voice similar to Julia Child before bringing the intensity down to what he called Margaret Thatcher on steroids.

  • So I had to kind of tune it down, and I got more like Margaret Thatcher on steroids and down.

  • Thank you.

  • If these invitations aren't enough to get a chuckle out of you, our next entry definitely will.

  • Number eight.

  • Barbra Streisand.

  • Mrs Doubtfire Could you make me a woman?

  • Honey, I'm so happy Things isn't the first, and it definitely won't be the last time we mentioned this beloved 1993 family classic for this list.

  • Do a great impression of a hot dog.

  • Although the film is chock full of amazing scenes showcasing the leads talent for voices, it is a specific moment during a makeover montage that is truly gut busting.

  • When Father Daniel Hillard plans to pose as a nanny to spend time with his Children, he seeks the help of his makeup artist brother to turn him into a woman feel like glorious sons.

  • You look like a mother.

  • I'm ready for my close up, Mr DeMille, Cuba.

  • Campy nails, a latex nose bubby and a shockingly accurate looking Barbra Streisand.

  • Not only is this one of the funniest things you will ever see?

  • It only gets better when he starts breaking out in a rendition of her hit Don't Rain on My Parade.

  • Don't tell me, Not the level just sitting.

  • Potter Life's Candy and the Sons of Paula Butter don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.

  • Number seven.

  • Hollywood director.

  • Whose Line is It Anyway?

  • It comes as no surprise that a show entirely dedicated to improvisation would be right up.

  • The comedians Alley like to welcome special guests Robin Williams pronouncing that correctly.

  • Welcome to the show.

  • Thank you.

  • Thanks to be here.

  • Williams Lightning speed, quick witted off the cuff comedic style served him well during an appearance.

  • On Whose line Is It Anyway?

  • One of the standout moments would arguably be during the show's recurring game.

  • Hollywood director, where the cast is given a film scene to play out while continuously changing their performance style, according to the director suggestions.

  • Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut.

  • I'm really having a hard time staying in character.

  • I know you are.

  • Not only are Robbins impressions of Italian and river dancing chefs hysterical, it also gives audiences a chance to see him play off of others for a change and share the spotlight.

  • Try to concentrate and work hard.

  • Work hard, Work hard, All right, You know what?

  • Last night you didn't say that.

  • Number six Heads up The Ellen DeGeneres Show Me that French.

  • Out of all the games on this popular talk show, the producers managed to find one that was clearly tailor made for this accent impresario, basically a souped up version of charades.

  • The object of Heads Up is to guess the word on the hidden screen while a partner is either voicing or acting it out and surprise, surprise.

  • Robin pulled it off, mostly without a hitch, from his spot on French accent to a pretty decent share to probably one of the best Miley Cyrus imitations ever.

  • It seemed like there was nobody he couldn't recreate whole half free share.

  • Thea Onley Snag came with his attempt at Rosie Perez is accent, which just goes to show that even the greats have off days to right now.

  • I want to do my quick before I bring a duty.

  • Roberts, uh, food number five Jack Nicholson.

  • The Graham Norton Show, According to a 2013 read it AM A.

  • It was revealed that out of Robin's vast arsenal of celebrity impersonations, his absolute favorite to perform was that of good friend Jack Nicholson.

  • All right, Sparky, here's the deal.

  • If you want to court the little lady, you gotta be a straight shooter.

  • Do you got it?

  • This comes as no surprise, with Williams not only nailing the legendary actor's voice but his distinctive facial mannerisms as well for a little medication.

  • When fellow guest star Elijah Wood offered up an anecdote about Jack during an episode of The Graham Norton show, the funny Man immediately started shifting into his famous impression and ended the bit with a zany story of his own regarding the three time Oscar winner.

  • We're standing backstage because they're just about to take you to the press conference and he goes, you know, Rob Oh, now I have one For every decade.

  • Number four.

  • French, Siri.

  • The Ellen DeGeneres Show Remember when Serie was the height of smartphone technology?

  • It wasn't that long ago, and that's exactly what was on the famous San Franciscans mind when he sat down with Ellen in 2011.

  • I tried to use it in France.

  • And it was like, Siri, name me a fine French restaurant.

  • Robin, I can't find restaurants in France.

  • At that point.

  • I give up.

  • Okay.

  • After discussing the newest feature on the Apple iPhone for us, Williams decided to answer his own question by acting out what he thought of French.

  • Siri would sound like.

  • I wish it had a French accent.

  • Call it.

  • Sorry.

  • What do you do?

  • What do you care?

  • I don't know.

  • Apparently sorry, as he called it would sound pretty much like his standard French impression, complete with snarky, condescending remarks, disdain for the American user and being just generally unhelpful.

  • You're in France.

  • Walk outside, walk down the block.

  • Look around you idiot.

  • Blue.

  • Leave your life taking pictures with you for look, look.

  • And then paint number three.

  • All the voices, Mrs Doubtfire.

  • I do voices.

  • What do you mean?

  • You do voices, Ben?

  • I do voices.

  • Most of us have probably wondered at one time or another what it would have been like to catch a glimpse inside the mind of Robin Williams.

  • They've come to this planet looking for intelligent life.

  • We made a mistake.

  • What happened to be in America.

  • Don't ask for the green card.

  • Well, we think it would look a little something like this iconic scene from Mrs Doubtfire when Williams Daniel Hillard shows off his voice acting skills to social worker Mrs Sellner e.

  • Suddenly a rough meeting.

  • And it's not going very well for me, I'll tell you that.

  • Hey, boss, to give it a change, she's gonna loosen up any moment.

  • The audience is treated to a lightning round of impressions, including aliens.

  • A silly double 07 Sean Connery.

  • Look at me right now.

  • One time.

  • Do that bow and get to know you a charmingly threatening Humphrey Bogart.

  • Or make me smacking sweetheart, I'll do it.

  • And possibly the most amazing of all.

  • An imitation of a hot dog.

  • I do a great impression of a hot dog, although the social worker looks less than amused in the end, we suspect that even she probably got a secret chuckle out of that.

  • Mr.

  • Hiller, do you consider yourself humorous?

  • I used to.

  • There was a time when I found myself funny, but today you have proved me wrong.

  • Number two Elmer Fudd.

  • An Evening with Robin Williams This is Elmer Fudd.

  • Think it takes a special kind of person to combine two seemingly separate and opposite entities and bring them together to create something pretty darn awesome?

  • I'm driving in my car.

  • Tha That is exactly what you confined In the 1983 comedy Special An Evening With Robin Williams in the form of Elmer Fudd serenading the audience with Bruce Springsteen's Fire, I think performance really got the audience and us all fired up.

  • Not only is it a perfectly skillful display of mimicry on Williams part, but it's also a testament to the artist's creativity and pure fun.

  • E don't know about you, but that Elmer Fudd one is super memorable for May.

  • In fact, you might say it's fire, but I guarantee you will agree with our number one pick.

  • So let's look through some hysterical, honorable mentions.

  • And then we will name our top Robin Williams Impressions News anchor Walter Cronkite, Robin Williams.

  • Weapons of self destruction.

  • The father goes, Oh my God!
