Remembering June Foray

June Foray

We’re sad to learn that voiceover artist June Foray has passed away at the age of 99. She began her career in radio before moving into voiceover work, voicing “Granny” in "Tweety and Sylvester" and “Witch Hazel” on Bugs Bunny, among others. Foray is perhaps best known for her work as “Rocket J. Squirrel” and “Natasha” on The Bullwinkle Show, but also contributed to many other animated programs from The Smurfs (as “Jokey”) to How the Grinch Stole Christmas (as “Cindy Lou Who”). 

Below are some selections from her 2000 interview:
