I am sad to inform you all, that I have recent been informed by separate sources of the loss of one of our beloved original voice actors, Madeline Blaustein, unfortunately passed away in her sleep last week. She was one of the voice actors who were in it from the start and she is most famous among the Pokémon community for providing the voice of Meowth from Episode 32 up to Episode 421 among various other characters. She was a kind person and even took time our of her busy schedule to do a Q&A session on the forums here. She will be sorely missed among the community and our hearts go out to all her friends and family during this difficult time.

Rest in Peace Maddie.

Wow. This came out of the blue... :(

I'll always remember her for the entertaining voiceovers that she offered to TV shows, namely Meowth and others in Pokemon.

Rest in Peace, Maddie.

Way Past Cool!!
I'm not very good at words when it comes to news like this.:(

I've got a lump in my throat and am in shock. Tears welling in my eyes as I type. I communicated with her on the forums in the past and it was just a question and that was about if I remember 2 years ago. Most of the time I just read her statements on the forums. Maddie I will miss dearly and she was a very good VA.

R.I.P Maddie.

Oh my god... I hardly watch anime anymore, but I grew up with her voice acting skills unknowingly, and not just with Meowth. I shall miss her greatly.

Deepest sympathies to her family, and rest in peace.
