Voice of Smurfette is gone.
Sad news in the world of voice acting. Lucille Bliss is a name you might not know off the top of your head, but you’ve defiantly heard her work. A talented voice actress, she’s worked a variety of films and TV. One of her first gigs was as Cinderella’s evil step sister Anastasia. From there she voiced characters in both Disney and Hanna Barbera cartoons. But her most famous work was that of Smurfette during the 1980’s Smurfs cartoon.
She didn’t stop here, she continued to work well into her 90’s. Most geeks worth their weight in Cheeze Itz will recognize her as the voice of Miss Bitters in Invader Zim.
Bliss died of natural causes last week (November 8th) in Costa Mesa, California. While she might be gone, her works lives on. I say give Invader Zim a run on Netflix tonight in her honor.
