calliopes_pen: (alterian Kitty Pryde goodbye)
June Foray has passed away at the age of 99, just two months before what would have been her 100th birthday. May she rest in peace. She is likely best known as the voice of Rocky The Flying Squirrel and Natasha on The Rocky And Bullwinkle Show. I think Nickelodeon played that quite a bit back in the 80’s.

After I looked through her IMDB filmography, I saw that she basically did voice work on a lot of the shows of my childhood. She was the voice of various characters in Denver The Last Dinosaur, The Smurfs, The Incredible Hulk (the 1982 cartoon, narrated by Stan Lee), and The Real Ghostbusters. She was the voice of Aunt May in Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends. Mrs. Featherby in both the Ducktales series, as well as Ducktales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp (1990).

She was the voice of the Talky Tina doll in an episode of The Twilight Zone.

She was in Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (1975) as the voices of Nagaina the Cobra, Wife of Nag; Teddy's Mother; and Darzee's Wife. I think that, and The Cricket In Times Square (1973) were on Nickelodeon a lot, too. She was the voice of the Hag in Faeries (1981), which I watched when I was likely only a year old--2 at the most...however old I was, a moment where a shadow is stabbed and starts bleeding left an impression, for I searched for it for decades before finding the title.

In other news, sister got out of the hospital last night. And yesterday morning we got word that someone on Dad’s side of the family died. Due to our drama, he was unable to attend the wake (which would have been last night) or the funeral (which was this morning, in Louisiana). The florist we usually use for sending them something is temporarily closed due to the owner apparently being diagnosed with cancer. We eventually managed to find someone who would deliver there.

Meanwhile, Mom found Nellie’s room in the hospital. She’s only allowed ice chips now that it’s the end, but she’s still interested in slaughtering the nurses. She ordered Mom to bring her her mail—all three huge sacks of them, so she could mock the endless political things that had been stuffed in her mailbox. Mom complied.

On the Yuletide side of things, I just need to rewatch a couple more episodes of the show that I was assigned. I’ve come up with several ideas, and chunks that could go into the middle of the fanfic. I’m working on what I think the ending should be like, and a few other little, but important things, making sure I’ve got a handle on characterization, and then (since I’m currently recovering from a migraine) I’ll get started on it.
