Dreamworks Plans “Rocky and Bullwinkle” Short

DreamWorks Animation is set to produce an all new original “Rocky & Bullwinkle” short film that will sport the voice of the legendary June Foray as Rocket “Rocky” J. Squirrel.

Thomas Lennon & Robert Ben Garant (“Night at the Museum”) penned the short which will bring back the moose and squirrel characters, while introducing the duo to a new generation. Natasha, Boris and a few other familiar faces will also appear.

The short is expected to premiere in front of DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming film “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” a CG animated adventure film based on the “Peabody’s Improbable History” segment of the original “Rocky & Bullwinkle Show”.

Executive Producer Tiffany Ward says: “For an incredible 83 years, June Foray has left a tremendous imprint on the entire entertainment industry. Her amazingly indelible performances have enchanted generations and earned her a permanent place in the annals of popular culture.”

Foray played the role in the original series. Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) will take over the voice of Bullwinkle Moose.
