DID YOU GROW UP WITH ME, TOO? THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JUNE FORAY by June Foray with Mark Evanier and Earl Kress

Very early in this charming autobiography by June Foray is a photo snapped in Hollywood in 2000. In the image, the peerless voice artist strikes a pose with a friend at her recently unveiled star on the Walk of Fame. Well, how could June Foray not have a star there? After all, she is Rocket J. Squirrel, Nell Fenwick, Witch Hazel, Granny, Natasha Fatale, and Cindy Lou Who, Betty Rubble (in The Flagstones pilot), Chatty Cathy--even Bridey Hammerschlaugen, for Pete's sake.

Without even knowing it, TV fiends have enjoyed June's vocalizations on Gilligan's Island, Lost in Space, Get Smart, The Brady Bunch, The Smurfs, Spiderman and His Amazing Friends (June was Aunt May), and many others. She's done voice acting for major features, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Looney Tunes Back in Action, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, and Mulan. And just in case her tonsils might fall out of fighting trim, she's looped dialogue for such pictures as The Secret of Santa Vittoria, Bells Are Ringing (for Judy Holliday), The Only Game in Town, and The Hospital (for Diana Rigg!).

That's a fat resume for somebody who, when she was barely old enough to go to school, amused herself by barking at the dogs in her Springfield, Massachusetts neighborhood, and by doing voice impressions of Edna Mae Oliver, Una O'Connor, and other character actresses of the day. Even as a kid, she was drawn to unique voices with comic overtones.
