Lucille Bliss, the first voice of Crusader Rabbit passed away this week. She was 96. She had a long career, did many cartoon voices including several for the Smurfs. But for me as an impressionable dorky kid growing up, Crusader Rabbit was my favorite -- I suppose because of all the clever puns and wordplay. So the voice was as important as the picture. I never met Miss Bliss, but I understand she was a wonderful person. She provided joy to many people. There is no joy tonight in Galahad Glen.
