BORIS AND NATASHA by JayFosgitt BORIS AND NATASHA by JayFosgitt
A recent commission for :iconlila89: of Rocky and Bullwinkle's arch nemesis', Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. This was a particular treat to draw, since I love that cartoon so much.

I LOVE Boris and Natasha...not only were the cartoons brilliantly silly and entertaining for all ages, but their voice actors were masters.

I love this, also. :D The expressions, the bombs....awesome. :)

So cute! These two were my childhood heroes. I love how warped and yet functional their relationship is, and seeing them holding hands like this (despite the bombs) fills me with much glee.

I love Rocky and Bullwinkle too. So much so, I have all 5 seasons on DVD. So I hope that carries some weight when I say.

This is fantastic!! I do not believe you have changed the spirit of these characters by doing them in your style. I see touches that, though drawn different, still preserve the spirit of the original creativity.

Even though, in the series, most often their partnership appeared as rock solid. There were moments in which Boris and Natasha showed they could stab the other in the back. So I love the bombs behind their backs.

I think art and personality is true to the original creativity of the show. (this one's a fav)

Thank you! It's nice to meet another Rocky and Bullwinkle fan! The first few seasons are my favorites, for all the vitality and fun of the designs and animation, not to mention the great satirical gags!

Yes, with the entire collection at my disposal. It does seem like the team was running low on energy or something. The later shows are still fun to watch, just not inspirational fun. For I think the show became old hat and formula driven and they lost the newness of it all. (my best guess)

So I too find the earlier seasons more inspirational than later ones.

Natasha always did her best to put the "fatal" in "femme fatale." And Boris--well, he was Boris.

Do you ever wonder what their relationship was? I must be the only one who ever thought about that. They call each other by pet names like "Dahlink" and are always together but I've never seen them kiss or anything....are they married? Friends? Just co-workers? What?

As a kid, I was convinced they were married but according to the character profiles on the "Best of Boris and Natasha" DVD: “Although Boris has repeatedly asked for her hand, she has adamantly refused to part with it.” How cute is that?! So...unrequited love, maybe, although it seems she carries a bit of a flame for him as well.

Absolutely! She and Judy Jetson dominated the 60's! Then the 70's came along with Josie and the Pussycats, and it was all downhill from there!

I remember one classic bit, where after seeing something so shocking her hair turned white, she corrected the narrator that it's actually Ash Blonde (dahling)... ;-)
