Miss Information from "Histeria!" -- by Bob Doucette

This stunning portrait of Miss Information was painted by the producer of  the Histeria television series, Bob Doucette.   You can see more of Bob's brilliant artwork at  

Miss Information was Histeria's tour guide through history.  The role was performed by the hilarious comedienne and voice over artist Laraine Newman.    If you want to see and hear Laraine in action, you'll find her impressive list of credits at .


  1. *whistles* Stay together, people.

    According to her page, looks like she was also Baby Doll from BTAS. If you ever see Laraine again, tell her she knocked that ending scene out of the park.
    "I didn'"

  2. I didn't know she was the voice of Baby Doll. That's awesome! :)

    I totally remember watching Histeria! religiously when I was 8/9. Miss Info's role in the show was brillant. :)

    I especially loved the Apollo 13 episode where she and the tourist are aboard the spaceship with the A13 crew. That was loads of fun. XD

  3. Jeremy, that particular episode, "Histeria Goes to the Moon," aired on July 20, 1999, the 30th anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, July 20, 1969. (IMDB does not have the correct premiere date for this episode.)

  4. Wow! That's amazing. I definitely remember watching that episode that year-- I guess I didn't know it was on that exact same day.

    I think when I first watched it, it was when my bro brought over our old 90s portable tv set so we could watch Kids WB! when we went to family meetings in that year.

    I wish some lucky youtube user could upload it someday.

  5. Hello Tom !
    My name is Lucas, I'm a French history student and my project is to write a 200 pages history of Warner Bros. (from 1923 to 2011)
    What a chance to make a research about a company I've been loving for 20 years (I'm 22) !
    Of course, the animation part will be one of the most important, not only because the WB animated series were (and still are) my favorite ones but also because Bugs Bunny is WB ambassador, because WB was a serious Disney concurrent and because cartoons may be part of a huge marketing process (which is not a negative comment, quite the contrary).
    Finally, and most importantly, I was wondering if you would accept to answer some questions about cartoons in general, production and relationships with WB head, Spielberg, etc. I admit that the animation part won't be the only part of my research so questions will come little by little... Let me give you my email if you prefer to use it :
    Wow, what would have said my 6 or 7 years-old self if I knew that, one day, I would talk to one of the creators of all these wonderful animated series ?!
    Whatever, thank you for having entertained me for all these years and congratulations for this blog and all your work since the end of the 1980's :D

  6. Hellooooo Miss Info!

    It's amazing how many talented people worked on these shows at Warner Brothers.

  7. I agree. Bob is among the most talented.
