"A Source Of Irritation" - Boris Badenov on Escape

Post by George »

Does anyone remember the character Boris Badenov from The Rocky And Bullwinkle Show?

After doing some looking around on the internet (mostly wikipedia), I learned that Paul Frees did the voice of Boris Badenov, a Russian/Soviet spy who, with his partner Natasha, was always trying to "get moose and squirrel" in segments of The Rocky And Bullwinkle Show.

What inspired this search was hearing the voice of Boris just now as I listened to the Escape episode "A Source Of Irritation" from 7/5/53. Paul Frees is named in the credits, which I admit I fast-forwarded to after hearing a perfect Boris Badenov voice from what was supposed to be a German pilot during WWII.

Take a listen and see what you think.
