June Foray, the voice of Rocky and Natasha Fatale of “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” in the early 1960s, and a key figure in the animation industry, died Thursday. She was 99.
Her close friend Dave Nimitz, confirmed her death on Facebook, writing “With a heavy heart again I want to let you all know that we lost our little June today at 99 years old.”
Foray was also the voice behind Looney Tunes’ Witch Hazel, Nell from “Dudley Do-Right,” Granny in the “Tweety and Sylvester” cartoons and Cindy Lou Who in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” among hundreds of others.
