From the Associated Press:
Janet Waldo, who provided the voice for Judy Jetson and many other cartoon characters, has died.

The veteran film, TV and radio actress died at age 96 at her home in Encino.

A native of Yakima, Wash., Waldo was featured in the futuristic series "The Jetsons," which initially aired in the 1960s. Her other credits included Josie in "Josie and the Pussycats" and Fred Flintstone's mother-in-law in "The Flintstones."

I'm sure I'm not alone among fans who saw Janet Waldo as the second most famous name among the women who were voice artists, after June Foray.  Among her characters, my favorite was Penelope Pitstop.  I had a soft spot for that daring young lady in her sports car back when um, strange things were happening.  Strange days indeed, Mama....

Eep opp ork ah-ah, Janet Waldo......
