Some people after my own heart have started an online petition to the Academy Awards folks encouraging them to issue a lifetime achievement award to the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel (and hundreds of other famous animated characters), June Foray.

Besides voicing so many of the great characters of our youth, she's been behind the mic for 80 freekin' years! Here's the link:

I was fortunate enough to have met June Foray in LA many years ago.

What an incredibly wonderful talent and incredibly wonderful person. She could not have been any nicer.

The petition is an outstanding idea. I hope a million people sign it.

Just for clarification, I didn't start this. Just reposted someone else's campaign.

Fixed it Bob. Thanks for posting it though. I spent a couple of hours listening to June and Daws Butler going through their paces at an AFI event about 30 years ago and I was in kid heaven. She was a delight to meet.
