June Foray!

“June Foray is not the female Mel Blanc. Mel Blanc was the male June Foray.” – Chuck Jones

All-time great voice actor June Foray dubbed her final adventure this week, at the age of 99! In her 84 year career, from radio to movies to television, you’ve definitely heard some of her work – most notably as Rocket J. Squirrel and Natasha on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, Granny and Witch Hazel in Looney Tunes, Lucifer in Disney’s Cinderella, Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Talking Tina on The Twilight Zone, and various roles in such movies and shows as Our Miss Brooks, The Smurfs, Mulan, George of the Jungle, The Adventures of the Gummi Bears, and many, many more. She also did a lot of uncredited ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) work, including as the Brody kids Sean and Michael in Jaws, Diana Rigg in The Hospital, and Robert Blake in drag on Baretta! Huh!

And Bats moves ahead of his 2016 total, barely, with the 11 points on Foray, becoming the third person to top last year already, joining the Skeides and Munchak. Still five months to go! Well done!

Replacement pick due by next Thursday!
