Jean Vander Pyl (October 11, 1919 – April 10, 1999) was an actress on radio, television and movies. Although her career spanned many decades, she is best remembered as the voice of Wilma Flintstone from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Flintstones. She also provided the voice for Pebbles Flintstone, as well as Rosie the Robot Maid from the animated series The Jetsons, among many others, like Winsome Witch on The Secret Squirrel Show.

Radio

On radio she was heard on such programs as The Halls of Ivy and Father Knows Best, where she portrayed Margaret Anderson, the wife of Jim Anderson (Robert Young).

Television

She made numerous TV appearances as an actress in programs such as Leave It to Beaver, The Donna Reed Show, Father Knows Best and Petticoat Junction. One of her final TV appearances was in the opening scene of the Season Two Murder, She Wrote episode, "One Good Bid Deserves a Murder". Vander Pyl also had a very brief cameo appearance in the live-action film version of The Flintstones as Mrs. Feldspar, an elderly woman in a conga line.

She told an interviewer in 1995 that she received $250 per episode for making The Flintstones, and in 1966, when the series ended, she rushed to accept $15,000 in lieu of residual payments from syndication. When she gave the interview, she lived in San Clemente, Californiamarker and remarked: "If I got residuals, I wouldn't live in San Clemente. I'd own San Clemente."

On April 10, 1999, Vander Pyl died of lung cancer at her home in Dana Point, Californiamarker. She was survived by her three sons, Michael O'Meara, Timothy O'Meara, and Roger DeWitt. Her daughter, Tina O'Meara, died in the 1970s.
