June (voiced by Julia McIlvaine) is a main character of the Nickelodeon animated anthology series KaBlam! and its short-lived spinoff, The Henry and June Show. She co-hosts with her best friend, Henry.

Appearance

June is pale-skinned and has light blue hair in a ponytail with a spiky fringe, but is most often seen wearing a yellow T-shirt with an orange cardigan, green plaid shorts, and dirty white socks with purple shoes. In a few episodes, it is revealed that she wears a white sleeveless undershirt under her T-shirt and jacket, and one episode even shows her underwear – bloomers that match her jacket.

Characterization

June's characterization and personality changed significantly between the first and second seasons of KaBlam!. In Season 1, she is shown as being overly impulsive and excitable. In Seasons 2-4, she is depicted as smart, prone to cynical remarks, and laid-back, with her fiery temper reappearing only in chaotic situations. This change in characterization was very well received by fans.

One of June's most consistent traits is that she's a prankster, and often teases Henry. Usually, she's laughing at him because he always gets hurt.

June has a lot of skills. She is often shown to be quite proficient with machines and gadgets, building a large and complex page-turning device. She can also play the acoustic guitar while singing, and can dance.

Relationship with Henry

Even though they frequently bicker (and he often ends up at the receiving end of her jokes), Henry and June are very close friends. There have been threats to their bond, most notably in the Season 2 episode "Won't Stick to Most Dental Work!," in which Henry got tired of being made fun of and quit as co-host, but ended up back together at the end.

Reception

June seems to be the most popular character among fans, for various reasons. One is that her sense of humor is a bit more "adult," endearing her to older fans. Another is her originality – while most other animated shows have female characters in more generic "girly" roles, June is a tomboyish tough speaker. Another reason is that many fans simply find her cute.

June's Lessons

June teaches about choking and the Heimlich maneuver in the Season 3 episode "More Happiness than Allowed By Law!," where Henry chokes on a wedding cake as she explains. Together, she and Henry explain the principle of the Accordion Squash in the Season 1 episode "Resistance is Futile," and the phrase "onomatopoeia" in the Season 3 episode "Your Logo Here!."

Trivia

  • June had floor-length hair in a scene from the episode "I Just Don't Get It!" during her audition tape for KaBlam!.
