Betty Jean "B.J." Ward is an American voice actress and singer. She worked extensively for Hanna-Barbera, beginning in the late 1970s. Her first assignment was the title role in Jana of the Jungle, followed by Wonder Woman in the final incarnation of Super Friends. Ward later took over as the voices of Betty Rubble, first as a child incarnate in The Flintstone Kids, and then the original adult incarnation in several later Flintstones specials in the late 1980s and 1990s, and Velma Dinkley in Scooby-Doo direct-to-video films from 1997 to 2002, before Grey DeLisle and Mindy Cohn took over, respectively.
