EDITOR'S OPINION

*NOTE: The sound clips and editor's opinion were created by Pokejedservo.

Julie Bennett - Well, Julie is indeed the original VA for this role and it is a rather classic example of her work. Julie does a fine job in playing Cindy as a supposedly "sweet-natured gentle young lady"-flirt who frequently makes romantic advances towards Yogi. Julie's able to play up the flirty angle quite well, but also manages to convey the sweet and caring side, too (not to mention she has great chemistry with the late great Daws Butler).

Janet Waldo - Janet was a rather interesting choice for the role, as she plays the role similarly to Julie, but also does it in a way that makes it her own. Though one thing I certainly noticed is that Janet REALLY played up Cindy's flirty nature, to the point of giving the role a lot more bravado. 

Kath Soucie - While Kath is a fine VA in her own right, this is only an okay example of her work. To be fair, Kath is playing a rather different take on the role: as instead of a grown woman who frequently hits on Yogi, she is instead a teen girl who's a bit of a tomboy. While Cindy is typically portrayed with a southern accent, Kath kind of overdid it on this one. Though I feel that Kath does have the potential to play a more 'traditional' take on the role. 

Mary Ellen Thomas - I will be first to admit that I was never a big fan of Spumco's handiwork, but I feel that Mary does fairly well. Granted, she barely had any lines, but her performance and voice did suit the role nevertheless. I also noticed that, unlike her predecessors, Mary goes for a somewhat lower voice. 

Overall, I clearly liked Julie and Janet the most here, while putting Kath and Mary in second place - but they both have the potential to do better with the role here.
