Janet Waldo, who provided the voice for Judy Jetson and many other cartoon characters, has died.

The veteran film, TV and radio actress died on Sunday at age 96 at her home in California.

Her daughter Lucy Lee told The Associated Press on Monday that Waldo had been battling a brain tumour.

A native of Yakima, Washington, Waldo was featured in the futuristic series The Jetsons, which initially aired in the 1960s.

Her other credits included Josie in Josie and the Pussycats and Fred Flintstone's mother-in-law in The Flintstones.

Before The Jetsons, Waldo had been an actress for decades, appearing on such sitcoms as I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show, plus dozens of movies and radio programs.
