There are a lot of cartoons that we all watched over and over when we were kids even though they came out decades before we were born.
The Flintstones, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show, were a big part of our lives when we were kids and honestly still are to this day. One person actually had a hand in basically every one of your childhood favorites and while you might not know her name, you have absolutely heard her voice.
June Foray is a legend in the voice acting community. Her life is full of amazing accomplishments and characters that you absolutely loved when you were a kid. Unfortunately she passed away on July 26th, 2017 at the age of 99, after a 71-year long career. Even though she is gone, the characters she created will live on forever.
