The last of the classic-era voice artists.

Her real voice was not far off the mark from Rocket J Squirrel, I saw her in an old movie/TV show and spotted her voice immediately, she was definitely locked into animation work after Rocky. I thank her for all the entertainment, Rocky & Bullwinkle was shown quite often in the 70's & 80's in reruns, and her voice and the writing really made up for the bad animation in many 60's cartoons.

RIP June Foray

Now here's something I hope you'll really like,

Watching Rocky and Bullwinkle on a black and white, tiny (by today's standards), television screen was so special to my generation. Remember Sherman and Mr. Peabody? Such a wonderful cartoon show, written with lines you thought were funny as a kid, but adults could enjoy the double entendre, too.

99 years old is a good run! She and Rocky were very important to my childhood. Thank you, June Foray.

Rocky
Natasha Fatale
Granny (think Tweety/Sylvester)
Cindy Lou Who

a bunch of witches that more or less have the Granny voice---I guarantee you've heard her unless you never watched cartoons!

Here's a Fractured Fairy Tale with intensive use of June's voice, gotta love some of things they could get away with in the 60's cartoons, LMAO. She sure was a beautiful woman, I liked that picture the OP posted, she had nice hooters too.
