Voice Actress. Born Lucille Theresa Bliss in New York City, Lucille Bliss became known for her voice. She became a recognized television pioneer when she was tapped to voice the character of Crusader Rabbit in the first made for television cartoon series.

She debuted in feature films in the uncredited role of the wicked stepsister, Anastasia, in the classic 1950 film “Cinderella.” She then moved to San Fran­cisco and hosted a local television program; “The Happy Birth­day To You Show” from 1950 to 1957.
