El Hobito is pretty cool, though Gandalf is a bit odd.

It almost looks like he's wearing knee high women's boots...

Also, what's up with alien Gollum?

Probably would have went with the Finnish Hobbit but as Urulöké has already posted this one, my next choices would be the 1987 Moldovan and 1975 Bulgarian Hobbits.

The Hobbit has a stacked deck for this question based on having so many translations.
