Bliss has worked hard to the time of her death and has done lots of voice acting.One of them is the voice role in Cinderella where she had to play the step sister,Anastasia in 1950s




 "Cinderella go make my crumpets"Is what she would say for this line and if she was to tell you one of her lines in Cinderella that would have to be one of the lines.

This lady never quit doesn't she.She had another title role in the original "Crusader Rabbit"




After taking the big role of  being Cinderella's step sister,this girl could not give up.She then got another title role in another original movie "Crusader Rabit" which was the first animated series that was specifacally mean't for television.. The show, which originally aired on NBC from 1950-52, was co-created by Jay Ward of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Dudley Do-Right" fame.


This lady is such a voice acting expert,she moved to the Jetsons but then things didn't turn out so well
Bliss later voiced the original Elroy in the 1960s TV series "The Jetsons" (she reportedly lost that job when she refused to work under a stage name to cover up the fact the she was a woman voicing a little boy).
Well she tried again but the others were the same problems she had (STAR WARS AND THE FINSTONES) 
 But she will perhaps be best remembered as the voice of Smurfette in the beloved '80s series. The character, as voiced by Bliss, also appeared in several TV movies and specials throughout the decade. (Katy Perry voiced the character in the 2011 big-screen version along with its upcoming sequel.).

Bliss was born March 31, 1916, in New York to Frieda Siemens, a classically trained pianist who wanted to train as an opera singer, and James Francis Bliss. After her father died in 1928, she and her mother moved to San Francisco, where Bliss took acting lessons. She later borrowed $50 to move to Los Angeles for the "Cinderella" audition.
Bliss never married and has no immediate survivors.
