Random Disney Joke #2
Yeah, let that haunt you for the rest of your life!
I own nothing here. Disney does.
After Betty Lou Gerson voiced the original Cruella de Vil in 1961, several other actresses manage to emulate the original performance of that messed-up, fur-obsessed maniac. Glenn Close gave Cruella a more psychotic performance (if that’s ever possible!). Susanne Blakeslee, whom you may recognize better as the voice of Wanda on Fairly Odd Parents (more on her later), has been the voice of Cruella since 1999. Before her, in the 101 Dalmatians TV series, Cruella is voiced by April Winchell.
As the name suggests, she is the daughter of the late Paul Winchell, whom Disney fans would most recognize as the original voice of the lively, bouncy, optimistic, all-around memorable Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh franchise.
Let that sink in a little…
