Missing all those voices
Re “June Foray, voice actress behind Rocky J. Squirrel, dies,” Obituary, July 27
I grew up in the ’50s and ’60s. “The Bullwinkle Show” and some of its characters were my top choices. All us kids loved, and lived for, cartoons, and I knew that June Foray and Mel Blanc voiced my favorites.
About 1975, I was flying back to L.A. after finishing a low-rent theatrical tour of the Eastern Seaboard. I introduced myself to my seatmate, then hyperventilated as she replied, “And I’m June Foray.”
Although she was apparently trying to keep a low profile, she regaled me the entire flight with stories about her life, her in-the-works autobiography, and then favored me with so many of her voices.
Thank you, June Foray, for being a wonderful talent, and a generous and kind person. I’ll never forget you, or that flight.
