Happy Birthday to iconic voice actress Barbara Goodson. You are ideal as Laharl, Spike, Rita Repulsa, Lady Chiyo, Mother Taizin, and Naota.

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.

Happy Birthday Barbara!

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.

@Metabad You got it spot on.

The late Machiko Soga was the live actress. Barbara just did the voice.

@Metabad Not only that she voiced Rita in the Japanese dub of Power Rangers.

@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.

@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. ;)

@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.
