OK, so some of you were put off by the fact that the UGO’s 11 Top Voice Actors List had count’em 0, ZERO, female voice actors on the list.
Here’s another one that you may want to see.
Mental Floss
This week, Mental Floss published their own list of legendary voice actors and also where you might have heard their voices. Check it out via a link from VOX Daily.


You could consider this a sister post to the article I published a short time ago featuring the UGO list of voice acting faves.
As you recall, there were eleven voice actors on the list, and they all shared one distinct similarity…
They were all men!
I came across this list and was pleased to see, as I’m certain some of you will be, that there is more than just a drop of estrogen on this roster.
Five of the nine listed are women, including Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson), Mae Questel (Betty Boop), Verna Felton (Sleeping Beauty’s good fairy Flora, Aunt Sarah in Lady and the Tramp, the fairy godmother in Cinderella, and the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland), Eleanor Audley (Cinderella’s wicked stepmother / Evil Fairy Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty), and Tress MacNeille (Dot in the Animaniacs, Chip and Dale from the Rescue Rangers, an assortment of Simpsons characters and also a role on Futurama).
Sterling Holloway (male voice actor of Winnie the Pooh, etc.) has an honorable mention. The other gentlemen are equally impressive. Billy West shows up on this list as well as on the UGO one.
Check out the Mental Floss list here.
So ladies, does this appease you, or is there yet someone missing again?
Personally, I would have liked to see June Foray’s name on that list myself, but they sure put together a bang up crew of people whose careers should be honored.
Check it out and report back here with your feedback 😉
Cheers,
Stephanie
