Lucille Bliss, the voice of Smurfette from the cartoon show, has passed away. This is NOT a hoax.

It looks like someone edited it out of the article because there is nothing in there mentioning her death. You sure it's not a hoax? Wikipedia is not a reliable source for information since anyone can tweak it.

Here's a more reputable source to the news:

http://www.cartoonbrew.com/cartoon-culture/lucille-bliss-1916-2012-731 44.html

It's definitely sad news. Lucille Bliss will be missed but always remembered by animation fans everywhere. I wonder if they will dedicate The Smurfs 2 in her memory, especially since Smurfette plays a big part in it.

Looks like it IS true. That article names someone that I'm friends with and he mentions on his Facebook that she did indeed pass away. [Frown]

i for one am happy for her. our world can be a fun, exciting place, but it also can be mean and harsh, lonely and full of strife. she is in a much better place now, i hope.

This is sad to hear, and it is expected for an actress who was in her ninties.

Not bad. I'm still not a fan of Smurfette's constant crying, though.

I think it would be best for you to wait until next week for it to be on Vimeo, and the week after that, it will be on YouTube too.

Regarding her constant crying, I'm afraid I decided to keep it for a good length of video whatever some people like it or not, for you know I can't make promises. My apologies. (However I think the best thing for you though, is to skip the crying montage yourself if you couldn't stand it)

I never said I hated the Crying part of Smurfette, and I'm happy you made a crying montage, but like Smurfette was very controversal as well, but she was a pretty sweet girl overall

I wasn't saying that you should have removed the crying part, but it does serve the point that I wasn't a big fan of Smurfette's constant crying in the cartoon show and I'm still not a fan of it now. It was just bad writing on the part of Hanna-Barbera that just made Smurfette more annoying than endearing, and why I'm glad of how she's handled in the Sony Pictures movies and animated features.

@Clumsy 1991: I saw your video review on Facebook last night and absosmurfly loved it! I'm sure Lucille Bliss herself would have loved it, too. You did a great job setting the story straight on the little lady's origins and the deviations Hanna-Barbera and especially Sony Pictures did for their adaptations of the Smurfs.

As for Smurfette's infamous "boo hoo" crying, as a child watching the series in the 1980's I found it annoying back then too, but I think that was part of playing up her overly girly personality by both Hanna-Barbera and Peyo (remember they co-produced the series together). Ironically, it's what made her such an endearing and beloved character--still the most popular Smurf of all time.

And while Katy Perry does a decent Smurfette, complete with the gravelly voice, she does have some pretty big heels to fill. All that said, should Sony or Studio Peyo ever decide to create an all-new Smurf TV series (which a lot of fans and kids are clamoring for), I believe Miss Katy should be a shoo-in if she can ever find time for it.

Good job on the tribute! [Smurfette] [Wink]

Another comment: I like the little sidebar story on Katy being cast as Smurfette before auditioning began for the Smurfs movies, including how her Christian missionary parents didn't allow her to watch TV as a child. I am what many people would call an evangelical Christian (I'm part of the Calvary Chapel churches), and I grew up under the same legalism, isolation and do's-and-don'ts that Katy did, and so I don't blame her for ultimately bolting from that faith when she became of age. Her dad also seems a bit on the crazy side, exploiting her celebrity to further his own ministry and threatening to shut it down if she ever went too far.

It doesn't matter what stripe one wears religiously, or none at all, but it seems Katy's parents are a bit off the deep end--many Christians will have nothing to do with them at all--and it actually might be a blessing that she walked away from it all.

@Richrod Smurf Thank you for your feedback, really appreciated that you have enjoyed the video.

@Vic and thatonesmurfx103-9 Now that I clearly read what you have meant, I must apologise for a little misunderstanding about the crying Smurfette makes. I mean let's face it, I do also find it annoying to hear either, even with the way she does that. Although that is what makes her a unique character no matter what.

So to cheer us all up, I have just uploaded a special video containing some additional scenes that weren't necessarily needed for the episode's length, meaning that it would be so long to watch.

Here's the link!

Thanks man, Will wait for Youtube & Vimeo!! [Wink] and I like both Episodes, both were well done. at the very beginning of the Deleted scenes video, that intro music is the little bit used in Russian Dubs of the smurfs on the episode title cards. (don't believe me? watch some Russian Smurfs episodes on Youtube and you'll see [Wink] )
