I cant say enough about June Foray. She was as gracious and kind of an interview as I have ever had. To think that our little show had landed one of the greatest voice actors in the history of film, television and radio and she treated us like we were the Today show. What a classy lady. Now, if you are scratching your head and wondering…who is June Foray? …let me say this. You know her. You may not KNOW that you know her…but you do. We will start with her most recognizable character…Rocky The Flying Squirrel!!

June is best remembered for providing the voice of Rocky but did you know that she was also Natasia…as in Boris and Natasia, Bullwinkle’s arch nemesis? Oh and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Lets just focus on her Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dudley Do Right and Fractured Fairy Tales roles. This piece I found on You Tube has an uncut interview with June. I loved hearing her unedited.

June has worked more than just about anyone I have ever interviewd. From Lucifer the Cat in Walt Disney’s Cinderella (1950) to the Smurfs, to Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch to Granny from Sylvester and Tweety June Foray is a living legend. Her resume reads like a who’s who of cartoon voices. (CLICK HERE for more)

Please take the time to listen to our interview with the great June Foray! To quote Chuck Jones, great producer for Warner Bros. and the Looney Tunes crew…”June Foray isn’t the female Mel Blanc. Mel Blanc is the male June Foray!”
