I have a response from Gavin Freitas, producer of the forthcoming June Foray DVD Documentary (previously mentioned here), who says that he does have a release date in mind but is not quite ready to announce it.
Gavin adds that Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons and Futurama) and cartoon voice actor Billy West (Futurama, Ren & Stimpy) have been confirmed as guests for the documentary.
Groening and West join a growing list of individuals interviewed for the documentary, including Gary Owens, Joe Alaskey, Will Ryan, Rob Paulsen, Tom Kenny, Mark Evanier, and June’s VO agent Don Pitts.
Here’s the promo video, just in case you missed it last time I linked it:
In related news, on September 30, 2009, The Rittenhouse Archives will release their 50th Anniversary Edition of “The Complete Twilight Zone Trading Cards” set, which includes a limited-edition special chase card autographed by June Foray from her role in the episode “Living Doll.”
Rittenhouse’s official site says that this set “will cover all 156 episodes in one comprehensive collection, [and each] box of this set will contain 4 Autograph Cards.”
Visit SciFiHobby.com for more details and ordering info.
I’d like to interject that it’s not going to be easy to specifically obtain June’s autographed card in this set. There are 81 cards in the base set, and ordering only the base set will not include any bonus or autographed cards. The “box” order includes 24 packs and retails at $84, but each box includes only 4 random chase card inserts. So it’s literally going to be the “luck-of-the-draw” that you’ll find one of the bonus cards with June’s autograph.
They call them “chase cards” for a very good reason.
