June Foray

Voiceover artist

Born - 18 September 1917, Springfield, Massachusetts, USA
Died - 26 July 2017

Truly the voice of them all in Hollywood's cartoon world, this tiny (4ft 11in), straw-haired lady, born June Forer of French-Canadian heritage, added films to radio work in the early 1940s. More than 300 voiceover credits followed, from Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, through Tweetie Pie's Granny, Tom and Jerry (when they started talking), to - on TV - The Smurfs and Rocket 'Rocky' Squirrel in the 'Rocky and Bullwinkle' series. Just one on-camera credit: the high priestess in Sabaka (1954).
