Mark Evanier, a writer for comics and television and director of voice talent for various “Garfield” TV shows, is a friend of the legendary voice artist June Foray; in fact, he’s a co-author of her autobiography. June Foray has been in a million things but perhaps her best-known role is Rocket J. Squirrel – which gives me a chance to remind you of the “Rocky & Bullwinkle” marathon Thanksgiving Day on VH1 Classic.
Anyway, Evanier’s musings on this whole sad Kevin Clash situation include a story of Evanier and Ms. Foray (who is now 95) meeting Kevin Clash backstage at the Daytime Emmys.
The whole Kevin Clash debacle is just a shame. I wish I had something meaningful or enlightening to say about it, but it’s just depressing.
