|Janet Waldo with a drawing of her character|
Judy Jetson. Waldo died this week at the age of 96.
The futuristic cartoon from the 1960s featured a family living way off in the future, and it included the perky teenage Judy Jetson.
She was the one with the gravity-defying ponytail who always seemed to be gushing about the hot guys at school. You know, hunks like Buddy Blastoff, Larry Luner and Ricky Rocket.
Judy Jetson's voice was so gushy and like wow you practically went into a diabetic coma listening to her.
The reason I bring all this up is, sadly, the voice of Judy Jetson, Janet Waldo, has passed away at the age of 96.
She was an iconic voice of other young women and teenagers in mid to late 20th century cartoons, including the voice of Josie in "Josie And the Pussy Cats."
She was also the voice of Penelope Pitstop. You remember her. That perky voice again, this time with a southern accent. "Heyelp!, Heyelp!"
RIP to an icon of 1960s cartoons.
