Director: Jay Ward

Institute History

  • 1989 Sundance Film Festival


This special, two-part program pays tribute to the creators of the best-loved, most original and consistently funniest television cartoons of the Baby Boom era. Jay Ward himself helped to select the films for this retrospective that features some of his best characters: Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Bullwinkle the Moose, Boris Badenov, Natasha Fatale, Dudley Do-Right of the Royal Canadian Mounties, Tom Slick, Superchicken and George of the Jungle.

A highlight of the program will be a special guest appearance by June Foray, the voice of Rocky, Natasha, Nell Fenwick, Ursula, Marigold, and other characters of Jay Ward's creation.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.
