Her New York Times obituary

And the TImes got it wrong as usual. The moon mice didn't chomp metal, they munched it.

The more you know about a subject, the more mistakes you find in the Times coverage.

I'm a fan, not an expert, but I thought Natasha's last name was Nogoodnik. Maybe that was an alias.

I always knew her as Natasha Fatale.

She was honored one year at Cinecon and it subsequent Cinecons used to sit in the balcony at The Egyptian. I heard on the radio that she was the original voice of the Chatty Cathy doll.

End of an era I guess, at least in the animation I grew up with.
She was so brilliant. I don't think kids today get to see Rocky and Bullwinkle, and I suppose they wouldn't get all the references, but I hope some of the many retro channels broadcasting in the US start to run it again.
What a brilliant voice artist. I wish she had made it to 100 but I'm glad that she was apparently well and active almost until the end.

They've finally scheduled a memorial for June in LA. The day after her 100th.
