  • Boris Badenov
rdfs:comment
  • Boris Badenov is a fictional character in the 1960s animated cartoons Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show, collectively referred to as Rocky and Bullwinkle for short. He is voiced by Paul Frees. He and Natasha are the secondary antagonists of the 2000 film The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
  • Badenov's name is a play on that of the 16th-century Russian Tsar Boris Godunov ("bad enough" vs. "good enough"). His accent and explosive temper are an homage to Hollywood actor Akim Tamiroff, especially Tamiroff's role in The Great McGinty, a 1940 movie directed by Preston Sturges.
  • Boris and his fellow evil spy, Natasha Fatale, are the arch-enemies of Rocky and Bullwinkle. They both speak with a Russian accent and worked for Fearless Leader. Boris, like many comical cartoon villains, would often create elaborate schemes and traps for his foes, but they would always backfire. He has a black outfit, fedora and small mustache. Boris enjoys light reading; his favorite book is an anthology of fiendish plans called the Fireside Crook Book. He is also a charter member of the Van Gogh Society, a club whose members collect human ears.

Boris's name is a pun on a historical character, a Russian Tsar, later the subject of a famous play and opera named Boris Godunov. A running gag of the Bullwinkle series is that the heroes never seem to recognize the villains, no matter how many times they met, and that the flimsiest disguises used by Boris and Natasha would fool them entirely. The villains often also met with undignified, painful fates as the adventures ended.
