Think Ghislane Maxwell as Natasha

Ghislane Maxwell as Natasha

Natasha is a spy for the fictional country of Pottsylvania, and takes orders from the nation’s leader, Fearless Leader. Natasha usually serves as an accomplice to fellow spy Boris Badenov.

According to the Rialto Theater’s Moosebill for “Downhill: The Musical” Natasha is supposedly the only child of Axis Sally and Count Dracula. A former Miss Transylvania, she was expelled from college for subversive activities at a local cemetery. She traveled from Transylvania to the United States at the age of 19, landing in New York, where she spent two years posing for cartoonist Charles Addams, and as the party girl who pops out of the big cake at embalmers’ stag parties.

Creator Bill Scott modeled Boris and Natasha after two of Addams’ original characters from his cartoons, who were later named Gomez and Morticia Addams. She met Boris when they were arrested for throwing rocks at Girl Scouts. He became smitten with her charms and they became partners in crime.

Usually, Natasha’s and Boris’s misdeeds are thwarted by Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Bullwinkle the Moose. She refers to them collectively as “moose and squirrel.” She is almost always shown in a purple dress, but in the last season it is often red.[citation needed]

Name

Natasha’s last name is a pun on the phrase femme fatale, with emphasis on the “fatal” part; in keeping with that, Natasha was drawn as a shapely, attractive looking woman. However, in nearly all episodes, the character is identified only as Natasha, with no surname.

She is apocryphally known as “Natasha Nogoodnik”. However, she is identified in the series premiere by her proper name by the show’s narrator, making “Fatale” her canonical and correct surname. However, either or both may be a nom de guerre.
