You know, I can completely understand why people would confuse Don Messick & Daws Butler regularly. They voiced a lot of characters in Hanna Barbera shows it's difficult to pin them down to one particular voice. That's a testament to how big their range was.

Anyway onto Don, Scooby Doo is my favorite performance from him. So iconic. Boo Boo bear also ranks pretty high on my list of favorite roles of Don Messick.

Happy Birthday and RIP Don Messick.

A wonderful performer from the old radio days who also left his mark in cartoons. I really loved him as Ratchet, Scavenger, Gears, Sinestro, the Scarecrow and Scooby-Doo.

Happy Birthday and RIP Don Messick!

He truly was a voice acting legend especially with Hanna-Barbera's many productions over the years.

I loved his performances as Scooby-Doo, Astro, Boo Boo Bear, Ranger Smith, Papa Smurf, Bamm-Bamm Rubble, Muttley, Droopy, Azrael, Ratchet and Hampton J. Pig.

He was one of the greatest actors of all time...however, that isn't him as Gorgon on ''Fantastic Four''.
