1 Response to Billie Watt

Billie Lou Watt was a multi-talented lady of stage, television, and animation. With nearly 1,400 episodes of the CBS RADIO MYSTERY THEATER, it is unfortunate that she lent her voice to just one episode. Ms. Watt can be heard in many animated series such as ASTROBOY (as "Astroboy"), GIGANTOR (as "Jimmy Sparks"), KIMBA THE WHITE LION (as "KIMBA"), SUPERBOOK (as "Christopher Peeper"), THE FLYING HOUSE (as "Justin Casey"), and her recurring role in COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG (as Eustice's mother, "Ma Bagge"), to name but a few; in each series, she would often voice multiple roles. As remembered as she may be to modern generations in these lead parts in cartoons (particularly dub work of Japanese series), Ms. Watt was an established stage actress who began in Broadway productions before her graduating from Northwestern University (where she met her husband, a star of OTR himself, Hal Studer). From the 1950s through the early 1980s, Watt would appear in different daytime serials with her longest run as "Ellie Harper Bergman" in CBS's SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, a role she played from 1968-1981. (Sadly, most of her footage from SEARCH was "wiped" as this was the period when many networks reused videotape to save money, not seeing their long-term value as entertainment in the future.) She spent her entire career in the NYC area, never "going west," and she died there of lung cancer in New York, New York, on September 7, 2011 (just four days before the tragic 9-11 events). Her contributions to entertainment will never be forgotten.
