Bullwinkle’s June Foray and Bill Scott

Here’s a great segment from 1985 that talks to June Foray and Bill Scott about their career providing voices for many of the characters appearing in Rocky & Bullwinkle. As Mark Evanier points out (in his post, which is where we found this), this might actually be Scott’s last public appearance before his death.

This is a great find, since the previous video we had posted of Foray and Scott got yanked.

Animation Round-Up

Best of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Vol. 2 DVD Jungle Book DVD cover art Legion of Super-Heroes, Vol. 1 DVD cover art

First up we’ve got The Best of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Vol. 2, from Classic Media. Breaking off from full season boxed sets (the third season was released in 2005), we now get three-for single discs, this one containing three full adventures from the fourth and fifth seasons. Unfortunately, the cartoon was meant to be broken up into chapters with in-between bits in place–these interstitials are AWOL. As a result, you run into a problem that I’ve had with this and also Danger Mouse–I’m seeing a rehash of a plot that I just left, so I don’t need the rehash in the first place. As I’ve suggested elsewhere, there needs to be a way to play them without recaps. Of course, the best thing to do would be to just release the full seasons. Let’s hope that’s still on the horizon. No special features. (Click here to buy it from Amazon.)

The Rocky & Bullwinkle Crew Shill for Cereal

Update: Alas, both videos have been taken down.

Great commercials here, with Rocky, Bullwinkle, Sherman and Peabody weighing in on the benefits of Jets and Wheat Hearts. Because “Wheat Lungs” didn’t test well with the kiddies.

A bonus bit where you get to see Bullwinkle smack around some defenseless bowls of cereal after the break.

Bullwinkle Veterans June Foray, Bill Scott and William Conrad Show Off Their Vocal Chops

Mark Evanier has all the details, but here’s the gist: it’s a snippet from a 1982 TV show where June Foray and Bill Scott (voices of Rocky and Bullwinkle respectively, along with craploads of other voices you know) trade off showing their stuff. Also, Evanier says that this the only footage he’s ever seen of William Conrad (Cannon, “The Fatman,” and narrator of umpteen other shows) doing narration on camera in his Rocky & Bullwinkle voice. And that means it’s pretty goddamn rare.
