Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Along with Mel Blanc, June Foray possesses one of the most recognizable voices in animation history and has worked with some of the top talents of the medium in both film and television. Her frequent collaborator, director/animator Chuck Jones, once corrected a journalist when Foray was referred to as the female Mel Blanc, who also worked extensively for Jones. ¿June Foray is not the female Mel Blanc,¿ Jones said. ¿Mel Blanc was the male June Foray.¿ Working for Jones at Warner Brothers, Foray voiced the characters Granny and Witch Hazel. At Disney, she is probably best known for voicing the character of Lucifer the cat in the animated feature "Cinderella," Grandmother Fa in "Mulan," and the mermaids in "Peter Pan." Her best known roles, though, are arguably Rocky Squirrel, Natasha Fatale, and Nell Fenwick for Jay Ward¿s "The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show." Foray also worked for Hannah-Barbera on the shows "The Flintstones," "Scooby-Doo," "Tom and Jerry" (during the Chuck Jones era), and "The Jetsons." As well as her numerous voiceover work for animated shorts and features, Foray has also dabbled in live-action television and film.
