Janet Waldo passes away at age 96

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Judy Jetson herself, Janet Waldo has passed away aged 96 years old. The actress’ death was confirmed by her daughter, Lucy Lee, who revealed that her mother passed on Sunday afternoon after being diagnosed with a benign yet inoperable brain tumor five years ago.

As well as Judy Jetson, Waldo voiced Nancy in Shazzan, Penelope Pitstop, and Josie in Josie and the Pussycats. Further guest starring roles include Beth Crane, a descendant of Ichabod Crane, in the episode “The Headless Horseman of Halloween” from the The Scooby-Doo Show in 1976. She voiced Morticia Addams in the short-lived 1973 cartoon series adaptation of The Addams Family. Waldo was the voice of Princess and Susan in the English-language version of Kagaku ninja tai Gatchaman, known as Battle of the Planets, and Hogatha in The Smurfs.
