A couple of TV obituaries

Janet Waldo died back on Sunday at the age of 96. You may not recognize the name, and more than likely wouldn't recognize what she looked like, since much of her career was spent doing voiceover work. Her most famous voice is probably Judy Jetson on the TV show The Jetsons She also did the voice of Josie from Josie and the Pussycats. Wikipedia says she had a bunch of small parts in the late 1930s and early 1940s, with the most prominent film in which she appeared probably being the 1940 Vivien Leigh version of Waterloo Bridge.

Ann Morgan Guilbert died Tuesday aged 87. Her most famous role would be as neighbor Millie Helper on The Dick Van Dyke Show. Later in her career, she would play Fran Drescher's grandmother on The Nanny. As for films, she's one of many "technical advisers" in the credits of A Guide for the Married Man, a film I thought I had done a full-length post on years ago, but apparently not.
