As a kid I was a big fan of the Scooby Doo cartoon series. As a young adult I did quite a bit of voice-over work for corporate training videos and radio spots. Later in life I was also very fortunate to have done over 80 hour-long live radio shows on a couple of big-time stations.
Long story short: I’m an aficionado of professional voice talent and a sucker for Shaggy – who was voiced by Casey Kasem of American Top 40 radio fame. I hope you enjoy this interview with the people behind the characters as much as I did.
BTW: I hope to meet Frank Welker one day. He’s a great talent in spite of his weird name.
While I don’t agree with most of Time Magazine’s choices on this list (where’s Tom Slick, George of the Jungle or The Banana Splits?), it’s still a fun trip down memory lane.
Give it a least a minute before you give up. This is funny.

Ever wondered about people who are willing to dress up in a Mickey Mouse, Big Bird or even random chicken costume for their job?
Well wonder no more.
According to this story reported at OnPointNews.com, a woman customer who claimed she was groped by Chuck E. Cheese has reached an out of court settlement with CEC Entertainment.
Jennifer Sorbello… alleged in a complaint filed last year that William Thigpen “touched and groped [her] breast with his hand” while performing as the Chuck E. Cheese mascot at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in St. Louis.
“Greeting patrons … while costumed and disguised as ‘Chuck E. Cheese’ was a task within the course and scope of Thigpen’s employment,” the suit said, and Thigpen was “engaged in such duty” when he allegedly groped Sorbello.
Yo Chuck, get a grip – and not on Jennifer’s boob!
