June Foray, 95, Voice of “Rocket J. Squirrel” and “Natasha,” Getting Lifetime Emmy Award


June Foray, the woman considered the Queen of Cartoon Voices, is getting a lifetime Emmy Award at the big show September 22nd. Foray is approximately 95, and has voiced some of the great cartoon characters of all time like Rocket J. Squirrel from “Rocky and Bullwinkle” and Natasha of Boris and– fame. She also voiced Nell in the classic “Dudley DooRight.” More recently, Foray has been a voice on Looney Tunes just this year and has never stopped working since she began in 1943. Good for her!
