This is truly tragic news. For the fans, her family and friends. She will always be remembered as an awesome actress and comedian. She will always be remembered as Meowth. But we must be happy for her, cause she died peacefully and happy. R.I.P Maddie. I guess, she's blasting off one last time.

Yeah, I guess it's sad she died, but her repertoire of voice acting for anime hardly counts as substantial.

What? No way. From what?!

The only thing that could possibly spring to mind would be complications from the operation, but that was a while ago...

She was pretty cool for actually talking to fans. I wasn't a huge fan of the writing for the Pokemon dub, but her Meowth was amazing.

Rest in peace, despite Poke'mon now and days, I still remember watching the orginal series almost a decade ago. I still remember Meowth though.

Thanks for the memories, my condolences to the family though.

I just heard about it a few minutes back. So sad to hear. I really liked her Meowth and Lt. Surge. She will be missed.

Wow. That's really, really young.

I can't say I was really a fan, but I grew up watching Pokemon. It's sad to hear she's passed away.

(This has been a bad year for voice performer deaths, in general...)

As a guy who had Pokémon as an integral part of his late childhood/teenage years, I must say that her voice for Meowth was a nice fit for the character. Some of her other performances were not too shabby as well.

Rest in peace, Maddie. Neutral

Wow. That's really sad. Even though she hasn't done a ton of voice acting work, she did such a great job with Meowth.

I didn't know she did Solomon Moto, though. How sad is it that, upon seeing this, I thought "Wow, Yugi's grandpa finally kicked the bucket like he wanted to." (See: YGO Abridged) I actually feel really, really horrible about thinking that.

Wow. Seriously? Mad


This is horribly unfortunate. I watched Pokemon for many years, and I loved Meowth. Thank you, Maddie. Rest in peace.

Wow, so sad... Never knew she was transgendered either... I remember Meowth very well from years and years ago and all the movies... one of my favorite voices in Pokemon. I might have met her in Second Life once upon a time, but I don't know for sure. It was a while ago.

Rest in Peace! Your fans love you!

Sorry, but appearing in hundreds upon hundreds of anime episodes is substantial. Not to mention the well over at least a hundred that weren't Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! And you should feel ashamed, but we know that won't happen.

I'm in shock.

I truly admired her. It's really, really sad.

I guess no one knows the cause?
