Foray was best known as the voice of Bullwinkle’s sidekick Rocky the Flying Squirrel (pictured) and their archenemy Natasha Fatale. But she had over 300 credits as a voice actress, working constantly for companies like Warner Bros., Disney and Hanna-Barbera. She was the wise voice of Grandmother Fa in Disney’s “Mulan” and the creepy voice of “Talky Tina,” the murderous doll in a famous “Twilight Zone” episode.
