We actually see her in this behind the scenes look at Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_-lIMpH2xc

I honestly didn't see that coming. Nor did I expect Johnny to be voiced by the elf that Buddy fell on in Elf.

@DravenRoth994 Ah so that's actually what she looks like.

Well Okay give or take a 10 to 15 years ago but still.

Watching this behind the scenes look at Ed, Edd 'N Eddy makes me want to re-watch the whole series.

I'll eventually have to get around to it. When I don't know.

This is late, but Happy Birthday, Kathleen Barr! I love her work in Ed, Edd, n Eddy most of all!

Sidenote: If Ocean ever dubbed Sonic the Hedgehog games she would be a perfect voice for Rouge the Bat.

@BayleyRose Same, but FYI, the Sonic the Hedgehog games have been recorded in English since 2008, I believe.

Not an enthusiast of Sonic, but I there was historically a wide gulf between Sega & their US branch, & eventually a decision was made, based on the wider sales of Sonic products in the English-speaking world, to record & write them in English, with Japanese tracks dubbed in afterward.

I believe the first one done this way was Sonic Unleashed...not sure though.

That's to say, it's become much more like many Sony games, which outsource everything to the US department, & are translated, localized, & dubbed into Japanese for the domestic release.

Even closer is MGS, which originated in Japanese, but recently had the previous English dub cast as the primary recording (& the script was English-originally, as well).

...All this success of Japanese entertainment outside Japan..makes me wonder why dubbing budgets are so tiny, btw.

Happy 49th Birthday Kathleen Barr. You've voiced a Fair Amount of Characters in a Fair Amount of Shows that I've been familiar with this Past Decade or so, that were recorded in Canada. Notably I go for your Performance as Rudolph in the 1998 Film.

Happy birthday Kathleen Barr, the Canadian Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.

She has such a wide and versatile range, I could honestly consider her to be the female equivalent of Paul Dobson. She can go from sounding like a young girl to a sultry woman to an older woman to a boy. It's pretty hard to pigeonhole her in one particular cjaracter type.

She has such a wide portfolio, having begun in the 80s and still very active to this day. Some noteworthy performances include Kevin, Morrigan Aensland, Trixie, Queen Chrysalis, Marie Kanker, Maetel, Gelorum, Dot Matrix, and Gali.

If there is one thing I can say, is that if GITS was ever recorded in Vancouver again, she would make an awesome Motoko Kusanagi (and arguably a much better fit than Allison Matthews)

For someone who's done so many voices, you'd think she would have a pic.

@Enigma2Me She doesn't want one. The pic up there having the little "negative" sign on it is used for VAs who prefer not to have images. There are a few of her floating around but they're all from the 90s (around the time Reboot was airing).

I really loved her as Kevin, Marie, Wheezie, and continue to love her voice for Trixie!

Happy Birthday Kathleen Barr.

An incredible woman with an incredible range to boot. I have a hard time picking between The Great and Powerful Trixie or Queen Chrysalis as my favourite role she's done. Kevin is a close third, I think she really sounds believable as a boy.

Also she was really good as Botanica, Gali, Roodaka, Marie Kanker, Misako and Morrigan Aensland.

She may be loved as Fifi Trixabelle... I mean, Trixie Lulamoon, but my favourite role from her has always been Marie from 'Ed, Edd n Eddy'.

It means she doesn't want a picture of her shown

@SpongeBat1 Not exactly. There are some online images that are undeniably her. However, to respect her preference for privacy, we will not be visually featuring them on this site.

@Nick000 And even if it was, our source says that she has no self-posted pictures of herself by choice, so there's really nothing that can be done about it.

@CatsTuxedo and as far as I've ever discovered of a picture of her is this picture from the mid 90s http://www.inwap.com/mf/crew/img/Voice1.jpg

There's also a live recording for an episode of Conan the Adventurer from '93 with Barr, Chalk, Jaud, McNeil, and Newman floating around.
