The Real Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Wilma, Daphne and Fred

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.

If you’re a Redskins fan who lives in the DC area (like your Uncle Frankie here), you’ve seen hundreds of these poor, woebegone souls over the years and wished you could do something about it. Well, now you can.

Don’t wait ‘Skins fans, donate today. Together we can eradicate NBD from the Metro area in our lifetime.

The Top 10 Cartoon Theme Songs

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.
