[[caption-width-right:218:''The'' woman of a thousand voices.]]

Tress [=MacNeille=] (born June 20, 1951) is an American voice actress best known for providing various voices on the animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons, WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}, WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}, WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp, WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures, WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and many Disney projects (a lot of which have aired in the 1980s and 1990s).

Her most notable characters on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' include Agnes Skinner (Principal Skinner's [[MyBelovedSmother controlling mother]]), Brandine Spuckler (Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel's [[IncestIsRelative wife/sister/cousin]]), Dolph Starbeam (one of the three bullies, along with Jimbo Jones [whom Tress initially voiced, but was replaced with Pamela Hayden] and Kearney Zzyzwicz), and Lindsey Naegle (the generic businesswoman/network executive/image consultant/financial planner), while her performance as Mom (a cruel, elderly businesswoman) is her most notable ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' role. She even became the voice of Daisy Duck in 1999. [=MacNeille=] has also done dubbing work on English language anime translations. She was also the voice of Leon from ''Lilly the Witch''. She's been the industries go-to voice for old lady characters for quite some time, and it's always easy to recognize her.

[=MacNeille=] sang and appeared in the music video for "Ricky" by Music/WeirdAlYankovic, which was based on the ''Series/ILoveLucy'' television show and parodied the song "Mickey" by Toni Basil. ([=MacNeille=], obviously, was Lucy.) She also appeared on Yankovic's 1999 album, ''Running with Scissors'', on "Jerry Springer", and did several one-shot voices on ''Series/TheWeirdAlShow''. [=MacNeille=] also appeared as an angry anchorwoman in ''Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark'' and served as the voice of Elvira's Great-Aunt Morganna Talbot. She also dubbed a helicopter-based news reporter, Kelly King, for Ride/UniversalStudios' ''Kongfrontation'', alongside New York newsman Rolland Smith (best known as the "[[Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial Fighting the Frizzies]]" guy, then employed at WWOR-TV 9, which was MCA-owned at the time) the footage of King dated back to 1986 when the ''King Kong Encounter'' ride opened at the Hollywood park (there, the in-studio anchor was Sander Vanocur).

Due to the sheer amount of voice work in her resume, Tress is no doubt a WomanOfAThousandVoices and is considered the female equivalent of Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/BillyWest, Creator/MelBlanc, and Creator/JimCummings.

!!Roles:

!!!Voices on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
* Agnes Skinner, Principal Skinner's elderly, controlling mother -- though the first time she was introduced in season one's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E11TheCrepesOfWrath The Crepes of Wrath]]" [the episode where Bart is sent to France after flushing a cherry bomb down the boys' room toilet while the Simpsons house a boy from Albania who is actually a spy for the Communist government], Agnes Skinner was merely an [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents amazingly embarrassing mom]] who called her son "[[EmbarrassingNickname Spanky]]," though most fans and writers have concluded that because of Bart's cherry bomb prank, Agnes Skinner has become the woman she is today.
* Lindsey Naegle, the generic businesswoman (though she is often used as a TV network executive character in such episodes as "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E14TheItchyAndScratchyAndPoochieShow The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show]]", "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS18E22YouKentAlwaysSayWhatYouWant You Kent Always Say What You Want]]", "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS14E5HelterShelter Helter Shelter]]", and "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS19E10EPluribusWiggum E Pluribus Wiggum]]"). Changes jobs constantly because [[spoiler:she's a sexual predator]]. Is a BlondeRepublicanSexKitten in a lot of episodes, though she was seen as a Democrat (who had a husband who left her after realizing that he was a homosexual) in the season 19 episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS19E10EPluribusWiggum E Pluribus Wiggum]]".
* June Bellamy, the voice actress who plays Itchy and Scratchy (even though in real life, Creator/DanCastellaneta is Scratchy and Creator/HarryShearer is Itchy) as seen in "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show." She also voiced the Road Runner (though she only said, "Meep" and it was doubled on the soundtrack without her knowledge).
* Dolph Starbeam, one of the three bullies (along with Jimbo Jones and Kearney Zzyzwicz); has red hair cut asymmetrically and wears a green shirt, black pants, and matching black sneakers. Not much is known about him, except that he may be the youngest out of the three bullies, he speaks [[UsefulNotes/EsperantoTheUniversalLanguage Esperanto]], Swahili, and Klingon, he's Jewish and attends Hebrew school, and, judging by his last name, his parents may be or have been hippies.
* Brandine Spuckler, Cletus Spuckler's wife (though some episodes reveal that [[spoiler:Brandine may also be Cletus's sister and/or cousin]]).
* Cookie Kwan, a territorial Asian American realtor who threatens anyone who tries to sell houses on "the west side." First seen in season nine's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E9RealtyBites Realty Bites]]" (the episode where Marge goes into real estate and Homer buys Snake Jailbird's car at a police auction).
* Ms. Albright, the Sunday school teacher on the season six episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E7BartsGirlfriend Bart's Girlfriend]]". Ms. Albright was seen in season two's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E13HomerVsLisaAndThe8thCommandment Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment]]" (her first appearance), and "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E11HomersTripleBypass Homer's Triple Bypass]]", but she was voiced by Maggie Roswell in those instances (her voice in those two episodes sounded more like Lisa's second-grade teacher Ms. Hoover).
* Mrs. Glick, the elderly shut-in lady who let Bart work for her on season two's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E21ThreeMenAndAComicBook Three Men and a Comic Book]]"; on that episode, Cloris Leachman was the voice of Mrs. Glick. When Mrs. Glick appeared in the season eight ''X-Files'' crossover episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E10TheSpringfieldFiles The Springfield Files]]", Tress [=MacNeille=] provided her voice.
* Bernice Hibbert, the recovering alcoholic wife of Julius Hibbert (on the occasions that Dr. Hibbert's wife speaks; normally, she's TheVoiceless)
* Brunella Pommelhorst, the stern school gym teacher (first mentioned by name only in season six's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E21ThePTADisbands The PTA Disbands]]") who [[spoiler:quit so she could get a sex change operation and get hired as the new woodshop teacher]], [[NegativeContinuity though she was still seen as a woman in "Moms I'd Like To Forget" and]] ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie''.
* Poor Violet, the little orphan girl seen in season nine's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E10MiracleOnEvergreenTerrace Miracle on Evergreen Terrace]]" and season 12's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS12E19ImGoinToPraiseland I'm Goin' to Praiseland]]".

* Gino Terwilliger, Sideshow Bob's son seen in the season 17 episode, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS17E8TheItalianBob The Italian Bob]]".
* Lunchlady Doris in the season 18 episode, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS18E1TheMookTheChefTheWifeAndHerHomer The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer]]" and the season 19 episode, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS19E13TheDebarted The Debarted]]", replacing Doris Grau (who died during the show's seventh season; Grau's final episode was "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E12TeamHomer Team Homer]]").
* Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon's wife (only for the season 13 episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS13E19TheSweetestApu The Sweetest Apu]]"; Manjula is usually voiced by former ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive SNL]]'' castmember Jan Hooks. Because of Hooks' death, [=MacNeille=] may be her permanent replacement in the event that Manjula appears again)
* Belle, owner of Springfield's only burlesque house "The Maison Derriere" as seen in season eight's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E5BartAfterDark Bart After Dark]]" (originally, the producers wanted a female celebrity to voice Belle, but when they couldn't find a good match, they called in Tress. The role was so big, Tress was billed with the regular voice actors).
* Mrs. Muntz, Nelson Muntz's [[ReallyGetsAround promiscuous]], drug-addict mother (first mentioned as being a jailbird in season four's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E21MargeInChains Marge in Chains]]" and having a cough drop addiction in season eight's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E6AMilhouseDivided A Milhouse Divided]]"; first heard in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS10E11WildBartsCantBeBroken Wild Barts Can't Be Broken]]" first seen in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS15E7TisTheFifteenthSeason 'Tis the Fifteenth Season]]")

!!Tropes:
* CatchPhrase[=/=]RunningGag: "My baby!" She's had this line in pretty much every production she's been in (often multiple times given her tendency to voice more than one character and often when she's voicing a mother or mother-like character whose baby is in danger), the commentary for ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' hung a lampshade on this.
* TalkingToHerself: Many times. Notably in ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'', she became one of the few voice actresses ever to flirt with themselves ([=MacNeille=] voices Chip and Gadget Hackwrench. Her Chip voice is so sped-up that casual viewers wouldn't know it was her. Now, her Gadget voice is recognizable, as she has used that voice for several bit female characters on other shows).
