AAAWWW! That's SO cool! I love it so much... God, I'm crying again...You know, its pretty hard to imagine how younger people who work in the entertainment industry die easier compared to older people.
John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Bernie Mac, John Candy, none of them made it to 60! And here we got Maddie Blaustein passing away at the young age of 48. It's always much more crushing to whoever's fans when they're standing on their feet one day, and in the morgue the next.
I think she was a great voice actor and I wish I was able to grow up on other 4Kids shows so I could listen to more of her work. To be honest, I still prefer the Japanese Meowth mainly because he sounds more like a cat in it, but I respect her for the Meowth voice she gave us, after all, she wasn't the original English Meowth. It was the original actor/voice director's decision to give Meowth the type of voice he was given.
Anyway, Maddie was very kind to the fans by coming in to answer questions around the 4Kids/PUSA switchover and I think that was very awesome of her to do.
So somebody made a tribute for her, an English adaptation of the second Japanese ending, Meowth's Song. Check it out, its pretty cool.
RIP Madeline Blaustein. Hope the boss [in the sky] finally gave ya dat promotion
I hope she also got a Pikachu.......
