Some of the funniest radio bits I've ever heard were the times she was on the Howard Stern show performing Rocky in skits like "Rocky the Squirrel meets Jessica Hahn", "The erotic adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle", etc.

You_Really_Like_Me: Some of the funniest radio bits I've ever heard were the times she was on the Howard Stern show performing Rocky in skits like "Rocky the Squirrel meets Jessica Hahn", "The erotic adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle", etc.


On one of Howard's birthday shows in the eighties Dick Butkus was there and they did "Rocky and Bullwinkle Look For A Hooker." I was driving to work at the time and I literally had to pull over because I was laughing so hard. To hear the familiar little voice of Rocky saying "Bullwinkle, I'm horny" and "I've got a woody that won't quit" was hysterical. What was even funnier was that Natasha was the hooker and after all the stuff that Rocky said June Foray was reluctant to come out with a line that turned out to be "because squirrels like to hide their nuts in strange places." Butkus completely lost it. Howard had June on a lot but that was her shining moment.

Wow June Foray never winning an emmy is more shocking then finding out Mark Hamill never got nominated for one as The Joker which I also found out today.

/Batman TAS fans give the Paul Dini and Mark Hamill episodes of the podcast, "Fatman on Batman" a listen.
//Jay Ward, Rocky and Bullwinkle fans give the book, "The Moose That Roared" a read.

She looks damned good for 94. As opposed to hunched over using a walker, like most of them.

She would be handed the script at the last minute. She would be pre-reading the line just prior to saying it and occassionally you'd hear Rocky's little voice say "OH NO... I HAVE TO SAY THIS?!"

If that is a recent picture of her then yeah, she definitely looks damn good for 94.

Back in the 80s, I saw Billy West speak at Rutgers, and he said one of the
highlights of his early career was doing a stage reading with June Foray and
getting to look down the front of her blouse while she did the Natasha voice.

As much as she's held up very well, back in the day, she was quite comely:

Came in here for this. Leaves satisfied.
(There was also uncontrollable laughter when Rocky called Bullwinkle "Limp Schmuck."

Wow - I bet she is/was fun in the sack:

Rocky: Hey, Bullwinkle why don't you put your rabbit back in my hat?

My first thought (after relief of the headline happy ending) was, maybe now she can get paid for the second meep.

There's something sexy about women who do cartoon voices. To this day, I cannot watch Yeardley Smith without being aroused...

Same goes for Mila Kunis, but I'm not sure it's the voice...

Like many men of my generation, I found Natasha Fatale, incredibly alluring. She may be one of the reasons why I am only attracted to brunettes.

.... I know TMI!

have you heard the voice they have for witch hazel in the new looney tunes show? she went from sounding like a batshiat crazy old woman to a southern baptist gospel singer.

The first thing listed on her filmography, she's Oswald the Rabbit and this is from 1943

Same here. Glad to know she's still with us and even happier to see her receiving an Emmy.

I remember seeing an interview with Sally Kellerman when she was filming the live-action Rocky and Bullwinkle movie. Kellerman was playing Natasha Fatale, and she asked June Foray, who was providing the voice of Rocky, what Natasha's motivation was. June Foray turned to her and said, in character as Natasha, "To get moose and squirrel."

According to IMDB, June is the voice of the dog on this I Love Lucy episode.

June Foray was the "Original" Betty Rubble
