Cartoon voice actress June Foray died at the spry age of 99.

Ms. Foray began her remarkable 85-year career playing an elderly woman in a radio drama in 1929 at age 12.  A role that she had been reprising for the past 30 years.

She was Rocky the Flying Squirrel in “Bullwinkle,” Lucifer the cat in “Cinderella,” a mermaid and a squaw in “Peter Pan,” Wheezy Weasel and Lena Hyena in “Who Framed

Foray was also famous for having pyramid-shaped breasts.

Roger Rabbit,” Cindy-Lou Who in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” Ursula in “George of the Jungle,”and Aunt May Parker in “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” (Back when they recognized that Aunt May is not supposed to be hot).

She also breathed sinister spirit into a doll in a memorable 1963 “Twilight Zone” episode, telling a little girl’s stepfather, “My name is Talky Tina, and I’m going to kill you.”  The episode was a clear knockoff of the Simpson’s episode that featured a killer Krusty the Klown doll.  (“Here’s your problem, you got this thing set to ‘evil.’”)

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

To which Mel Blanc replied, “Oh yeah, well you chew your own goddamn carrots, you lazy bastard!”

At 94, she became the oldest person to win an Emmy, cited for her Mrs. Cauldron on “The Garfield Show.”  “The Garfield Show” won an Emmy?  That’s pretty fucked up right there.

This hit goes to: Babysitter!  Aw, how cute, his first hit this year.  He made his first foray onto the board.

Happy pooling,
