Remembering June Foray Voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel

On this Saturday morning, we are Remembering June Foray Voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel who earlier this week passed away at the age of 99 years old.  Today’s blog post is one I will be printing and sending along with a note to a few letter writing friends.

One of my all time favorites continues to be her being the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel.

Among her other voices, they included Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, Cindy Lou Who in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,”; Granny for Tweety Bird and Sylvester; and Grandmother Fa in “Mulan”.  The AP has a very detailed article: “June Foray, voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, dead at 99.”

Earlier this week I learned of the passing of June Foray from a tweet by David Derks; I had begun following him after writing my post on the “Rocky & Bullwinkle Savings Stamp club” back in 2015.  He’s also got a great photo of him with June posted here.Thank you to the Art by @Jacob_G_artist from the tweet being shown here.  “The next 99 years won’t be as fun. RIP June Foray. Art by @Jacob_G_artist who brings Rocky & Bullwinkle to life again for @AmericanMytho”.

I’m closing today’s blog with this quote from my post from the “Rocky & Bullwinkle Savings Stamp club”.

Bullwinkle: Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat.
Rocky: Again?
Bullwinkle: Presto!
Lion: ROAR!!!
Bullwinkle: Oops, wrong hat.

RIP June Foray September 18, 1917 – July 26, 2017.  I’m envisioning her with Rocket J. Squirrel taking “a well deserved joy ride through the sunny skies of Frostbite Falls.”
