Recently I was saddened bythe news of the passing of cartoon voice great June Foray. I interviewed her back in April of 2009 and she was fantastic!!! I truly believe she was one of the "unknown greats". And when I say that I mean NO disrespect to her....in fact quite the opposite. We ALL knew her work we just didnt know who it was. June was the voice of Natasha and Rocky the Flying Squirrel on Bullwinkle. She was also Rudolph in the stop-action classics we waited for on television every holiday season in the 60's and 70's.
I'll suggest that you listen to my interview with her to hear her wonderful stories but let me say this about June the person. She had more grace in her twilight years than just about anyone I have ever interviewed. She was a classy and sweet lady who deserves the world. I am proud to say that I got 30 minutes to spend with her. We all love her and her work...you are missed, Miss June. :(
