June Foray and Bill Scott

Probably the funniest cartoons ever made, ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE (aka ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS or THE BULLWINKLE SHOW) aired new for only a few seasons beginning 50 years ago this year but, like STAR TREK, the series has grown in popularity and influence in the decades since. June (Rocky)Foray is, of course, the single greatest of the female voice artists and is still going strong today. The late Bill Scott was not only the original voice of Bullwinkle (as well as Dudley Do-Right and George of the Jungle) but also the main writer on the series. Thus, he deserves much of the credit for the wonderful zaniness of what has become known as the Jay Ward style of humor. This clip presents one of the final times the pair appeared together, shortly before Scott's death in 1985.
