Famous voice artist, June Foray passes away

I've always been a fan of skilled voice artists, such as Mel Blanc and June Foray. June Foray recently passed away. She did many voices and possibly her most familiar work was the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel in the cartoon series...The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. I thought this was an excellent series, not just aimed at the kids, but also adults.

and the one in the New York Times:

She was one of the best. She was even on a Johnny Carson show from 1955 when he was on CBS.
You tube has lots of her interviews and clips from older shows. I grew up hearing her and Bullwinkle and Rocky was always one of my favorites.

Goodbye Rocky. I'll miss you. Ninety nine years is a long time, but not long enough.
