Toonfomercial: Rocky & Bullwinkle shill for Taco Bell (1993)

For a period of about a year (1992-3), Rocky & Bullwinkle were licensed for use in commercials for Taco Bell. In each case, the iconic duo thwarted hamburgers hustlers Boris Badenov & Natasha Fatale.

Seeing as how Bill Scott & Paul Frees (Bullwinkle & Boris, respectively) passed away in the 80's, I don't know who's filling in for them here, working with June Foray.



Hamburgers being boring? Seeing as how I enjoy both hamburgers & tacos, I disagree.

Could be Keith Scott (no relation to Bill Scott). He's has done the voices of Bullwinkle, Boris and Even Dudley Do-Right for a number of ads and other appearances.

He also wrote a book on Jay Ward Productions as well

Yes, I've read about that. However, the research I did couldn't confirm that Keith worked on this ad.
