-->[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Troper! Barbara Goodson has escaped! Write a description about her with attitude!]]

Barbara Dale Goodson (born August 16, 1949) is a Brooklyn-born voice actress. Her best known roles are either older women (or old ladies in general) or young boys (and back in the day, TheChick too). She is very well known as either [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} Laharl]] or [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa]]. Her capacity for [[LargeHam ham]] knows few bounds.

She is notable for being one of the first actresses to get regular work dubbing anime, being very prominent throughout the 80s and early 90s, appearing in many projects considered [[GatewaySeries gateway drugs]] for anime fans at the dawn of the medium's popularity, and many titles regarded as classics today. She has also appeared in many older anime dubs that have since been [[DuelingDubs redone]] over the years.
