Happy Birthday Barbara Goodson!

My top 10 favourite roles of hers are:

1.) Naota Nandaba (FLCL)
2.) Mother Talzin (Star Wars: The Clone Wars)
3.) Rita Repulsa (Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers)
4.) Baba (Magi)
5.) Enya Geil (Jojo's Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders)
6.) Gon's Great-Grandmother (Hunter X Hunter)
7.) Akira (Daigunder)
8.) Madame Shibabawa (One Punch Man)
9.) Mrs. Fortner (Monster)
10.) Dr. Ashley Kafka (Spider-Man: The Animated Series)

Pretty much called it she'd voice Enya Geil in Jojo, now if Barbara ends up as Zirconia in Sailor Moon. I'll be 2 for 2.

Happy Birthday Barbara Goodson!!

It's awesome that she is still continuing to do voiceover work in Anime for the past 3 decades. :)

Loved her roles as Naota, Chiyo, Laharl, Rita Repulsa, Mother Talzin and Baba. It's nice that she was in Hunter x Hunter not only as Gon's Grandmother but the Old Lady Quizzer in Episode 2.

Happy Birthday, Barbara Goodson! AH, AFTER 10,000 YEARS I'M FREE! Not only did I love her as Rita Repulsa and pretty much found her Laharl enjoyable, she was a simply perfect fit for Naota Nandaba. It's *that* role I've come to associate with Goodson alongside Rita for a reason: memorable performances.

Happy Birthday Barbara Goodson!

She is an awesome versatile actress, able to play young boys brilliantly like Naota Nandaba, villainesses such as Rita Repulsa and so many elderly characters like Mother Talzin and Baba. I have a major feeling she is going to voice Zirconia in the Viz re-dub of Sailor Moon when they get around to SuperS.

Also she looks fantastic for her age like wow.

It was cool hearing her in Hunter X Hunter as Gon's Great-Grandmother and the Old Lady Quizzer.

Happy Birthday Barbara Goodson!

@Autovolt We have our first clip of the SuperS redub:

And it definitely sounds like they got her for Zirconia!

Granny Chiyo is Rita Repulsa? How come I didn't realize this sooner?

Happy birthday, Barbara. You really acquired my respect and admiration after Fooly Cooly, great acting and one of the most convincing boy voices I've ever heard from an actress.

Shame she isn't as active as she used to be. It would be nice to hear more of her. :'(

Happy birthday Barbara. Her range is incredible.

Rita Repulsa=Granny Chiyo=Naoto Nandaba

Now that is impressive.

@Fulgore2005 Wait what? I thought the person who played Rita Repulsa died recently.

...then again, maybe that's either the live action actress, or the Japenese Super Sentai actress I'm thinking of...or it could just be an internet rumor.
said at 4:03 AM on Fri Aug 17 2012
@Metabad You got it spot on.

The late Machiko Soga was the live actress. Barbara just did the voice.
said at 4:18 AM on Fri Aug 17 2012
@Fulgore2005 Ahh, got it.
said at 8:39 PM on Sun Nov 25 2012
@Metabad Not only that she voiced Rita in the Japanese dub of Power Rangers.
said at 12:47 PM on Thu May 9 2013
@Fulgore2005 She IS a good actress, but I wasn't thrilled with her Pazu in the JAL dub of "Laputa", nor any of her roles in the older dub of "Akira." I will say she DID sound great in the older dub of "Kiki", in "Metropolis" and other dubs I've been fortune to hear her in. It just depends, I guess, on the circumstances of the project.

@JTurner I don't know if you've seen Fooly Cooly yet, but I swear, if you just look up the FLCL Adult Swim promo on YouTube, it is one the most convincing boy voices I've ever heard a voice-actress do in my life. At least in terms of Anime actresses, I think it's the best I've heard.
said at 12:25 PM on Sat Jul 20 2013
@PsychicVoiceSpy I really have to check it out; I feel SOOOOOOOOO far behind in my anime. But I did hear of it. If Goodson performed well in that, hey, I'm willing to take your word for it. Just because certain dubs involving VAs don't always turn out well doesn't mean the VA in question can't act. As mentioned, I did like her in "Metropolis" and wherever else I heard her, so I'm willing to give FLCL a listen. ;)
said at 3:44 PM on Sat Jul 20 2013
@JTurner You may not like the show itself, I had to watch it twice and read analyses and stuff to understand what the heck was going on. Still, it's an excellent example of Barbara Goodson's talent.
