NEW YORK (AP) _ It’s Rocky versus the Raging Bull _ Rocky the Flying Squirrel, that is.

TV Guide reports in the Jan. 9 issue that cameras are about to roll on Universal Pictures’ ``Rocky and Bullwinkle,″ which will combine animated and live characters.

The film stars Robert De Niro as a man who tries to take over the world by hypnotizing people through their television sets on the eve of a presidential election. Jason Alexander stars as the duo’s usual menace, Boris Badenov.

Rocky and Bullwinkle will, of course, play themselves in the big-screen feature film version of their cartoon adventures.
