Lucille Bliss has passed away, at the age of 96. May she rest in peace. She was the voice of Smurfette from 1984-1989 in the Smurfs tv series, as well as all of the 80’s specials. She may also be remembered for doing voicework for one of the stepsisters (never knew they had names, but she was Anastasia) in Cinderella. She also had roles in numerous other Disney and Hanna-Barbera titles.

Margaret Nicholas has passed away, at the age of 82. May she rest in peace. She directed the 80’s Transformers, The Glo Friends, Inhumanoids, Moon Dreamers, Potato Head Kids, Fraggle Rock, My Little Pony n’ Friends, The Addams Family (the 1992 cartoon) as well as many, many other shows. For X-Men fans, she was the animation director for Pryde of the X-Men.

Yuletide sign-ups are now open. About Optional Details. You can find a summary of sign-up offers and requests here. Sign-ups will remain open until October 28th. I know exactly what to request, I just need to whittle down what I’m offering. For example—removing The Shadow upon seeing a couple Dear Yuletide letters, since I’ve only seen the film, and not the radio show, serial or comics. I need to find out if Dark Shadows (60’s version—since I know the 90’s version is on Youtube, but it wasn’t nominated), Pushing Daisies, and Real Ghostbusters are available online for viewing, so I can brush up on canon—been a while since I watched those.
