A GOLDEN MORNING spreads across a remote willow flat at 11,400 feet in the San Juan Mountains of western Colorado. I've waited nearly two decades for this moment, my first season to hunt moose. Cupping my hands over my mouth, I inhale a deep breath of crisp air and bellow the call of a bull in rut: Ooo-Wah! Ooo-Wah! Ooo-WAH! Before the chorus ends, a gangly brown cow appears from the edge of the timber 100 yards away and approaches as I call again -- Ungh! Ungh!

Bill Scott, the voice of cartoon characters Bullwinkle and Dudley Do-Right, has died at his San Fernando Valley home after suffering a heart attack. He was 65. Scott, who died Friday, was best known as the head writer, co-producer and the voice of several characters from the popular "Rocky and His Friends" show, starring a flying squirrel named Rocky and his moose sidekick, Bullwinkle. The show began in 1959 and spun off several other programs, running through 1973.

Last year is dwindling in the rear-view mirror, tumbling down the memory hole, shuffling off to the Valhalla of Used Eras to await the whimsical verdict of the nostalgia gods. A serious year in many respects, a time when San Fernando Valley residents were left dazed by streaks of crime, felt the heat of a catastrophic fire, and elected their guy mayor of Los Angeles.

If you thought Taco Bell had stars in its eyes when it hired songsters Hammer and Willie Nelson for its fast-food commercials, you were thinking small. Now the company has enlisted a couple of stars that it hopes will have an even more universal appeal: Rocky and Bullwinkle. The vintage cartoon characters star in a series of commercials to begin airing Monday. They champion the virtues of tacos, protesting that "burgers are boring."

Hey, Rocky, what do you get when you mix professional opera singers with elementary school students? What, Bullwinkle? An Opera-tunity. To teach, that is. Bullwinkle, Rocky, Boris and Natasha are serving as teaching tools in an art outreach program sponsored by the LA Opera. "Les Moose: The Operatic Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle," a commissioned work by Alan Chapman, is a tale of how the squirrel and moose must hide a secret formula for rocket fuel from spies Boris Badenov and Natasha.

Jay Ward, who sired a collection of characters dominated by a squirrel named Rocky and a simple-minded moose he called Bullwinkle, and then put them in a TV series that featured primitive animation and sophisticated dialogue, died Thursday. The creator of Boris Badenov, Natasha Fatale, Dudley Do-Right, Snidely Whiplash and, of course, Bullwinkle and Rocky was 69 and died at his home in the West Hollywood area.

It wasn't the type of celebration commonly held for a naive flying rodent and a not-so-smart antlered creature. Yet there was Los Angeles County Sheriff Peter Pitchess on that September day in 1961, presiding with actress Jayne Mansfield over the unveiling of a 15-foot-tall fiberglass statue of cartoon characters Rocket J. ("Rocky") Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose on the Sunset Strip. TV Guide reported that the publicity stunt, heralding the debut of "The Bullwinkle Show" on NBC, drew "5,000 milling, screaming, caterwauling celebrants" outside the offices of the critters' creator, Jay Ward Productions.

There was this squirrel. He had a boyish voice and wore an old-time aviator cap with goggles. He had a tall friend, this moose, who had the voice of a galoot. Together they escaped extraordinary mishaps en route to making the world safe for democracy, usually by thwarting the sinister plans of a couple of Slavic schemers, a squat fellow named Boris and a slinky woman named Natasha. The heroes were Rocky and Bullwinkle. No one who has seen them seems able to forget them.
