In a behind-the-scenes special made when “That ’70s Show” ended in 2006, Debra Jo Rupp made Kitty less recognizable off set for not showing her hair in public. We talked a little bit about not being able to. “Without the wig, people can’t really be sure,” she explained of how people recognized her when she was out of character. ‘Oh my God, are you Kitty Forman!’ Sweatpants rest assured that no one will recognize her.
Rupp reiterated this in a 2017 interview with the Los Angeles Times, saying it wasn’t just because of the wig, but as she got older, she said, “That ’70s show.” But people still seem to recognize the voice. And since the show has been in reruns since reaching its 100th episode in 2001, new generations continue to find the show and her voice is clearly recognizable. I’m so happy that I was the character that was named. Because I can’t imagine what it would be like to be recognized as the villain of a show. I cried all the time.” Now that she’s back, rap will become more frequently recognizable again, especially for her voice.
