Lucille Theresa Bliss (March 31, 1916 - November 8, 2012) was an American actress and voice artist.

A New York City native, she lent her voice to numerous television characters, including the title character of the very first made-for-television cartoon, Crusader Rabbit, Smurfette on the popular 1980s cartoon The Smurfs and Ms. Bitters on the Nickelodeon animated series Invader ZIM.

In addition to her television roles, Bliss was known for her work as a voice actor in feature films. Her first voice work was the role of the wicked stepsister Anastasia Tremaine in Walt Disney's classic 1950 feature film Cinderella, for which, she was honored 50 years later by the Young Artist Foundation with its Former Child Star "Lifetime Achievement" Award in March 2000.

From 1950 to 1957, Lucille Bliss was "Auntie Lou" on ABC/KRON-TV's The Happy Birthday To You Show, also known as Birthday Party Show, which had guests from adults, to children, to animals. At the same time, she did voices for Hanna-Barbera while they were working for MGM; as Tuffy in Robin Hoodwinked, as Leprechaun in Droopy Leprechaun and later was Hugo on an episode of The Flintstones.

She was also the narrator on three stories from the Disney Album "Peter Cottontail and Other Funny Bunnies"; those three stories being "Story of Thumper", Story of the White Rabbit", and "Story of Grandpa Bunny". Bliss was a voice-over performer for Airborne radio spots in 2004.[Wikipedia]

Rest in Peace Lucille!

I am watching Hillary Clinton in her victory speech in new Hampshire....they just threw a bunch of college kids behind her, and had her talk about student loans, and had her daughter come out for a long awkward hug...done anyone actually buy it? Surely young people are too media savvy to be fooled by this kind of shit.
do we live in a democracy so we can just keep electing the same families?
Barack is the first candidate in my lifetime to strip some of this bullshit away, and I just hope we don't blow this chance.
man if we miss this opportunity we don't deserve it....how bad does it have to get?

fuck!!!!!!!! [Win Butler of Arcade Fire]
