She does the voices of Dot Warner, Billie, Hello Nurse, Mindy's Mom, Marita Hippo, Miss Flamiel, and many more major and minor characters throughout the franchise.


  • Tress MacNeille was brought in to voice Dot as her character was very similar to Babs Bunny.[1] Andrea Romano, the voice director and caster for the original series, said that there was "no trouble" choosing the role of Dot. She stated "Tress MacNeille was just hilarious (...) And yet [she had] that edge."[2]
  • Tress was nominated for an Annie Award for her performance on the show in 1995.[3]
