Ginny Tyler is a Native American voice actress who appeared in dozens of cartoons and animated films mostly throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In 2006, she was inducted into the Disney Legends program.[1]


Life and Work

According to her biography on the Disney Legends website, Tyler grew up in Seattle and that her family had a rich legacy of storytelling and imitation of animal sounds, which proved very useful to her later on in her career as an artist. She first appeared before a radio microphone sometime in the 1940s and became host of her own children's show "Magic Island" in 1951. Later, Tyler began to work more and more offscreen as a voice artist, appearing in several cartoons and narrating vinyl recordings of Disney classics like Bambi and Babes in Toyland. Tyler gave a memorable performance providing the voice of an amorous squirrel who falls in love with the young King Arthur while he is in the form of a male squirrel in The Sword in the Stone and becomes heartbroken after discovering that he is really human. She also played Jan in Space Ghost and Dino Boy and Sue Richards, the Invisible Woman, in the 1978 television series Fantastic Four.

From 1960 to 1962 she also performed several voices for the series Davey and Goliath, including Davey's mother and his sister Sally. She was replaced by Nancy Wible, who had a similar voice (from both of their works in other series), but would use a louder tone than Ginny did. The two of them both played roles of carhops on the Flintstones episode "The Drive Inn" (made around the same time as the first episodes of "Davey & Goliath") in 1960 and their voices were tough to tell apart.

Although Tyler has retired and moved back to Seattle, she still occasionally does some recording for local productions.
