I’d like to get back on to lighter topics. It takes a lot out of a dog to come up with words to say about buddies that have passed away. Today I’d like to talk about a couple of famous dogs, Astro and Scooby Doo. The reason I am going to discuss both of them is because the same guy did their cartoon voices. That links them together forever in doggie lore!
The man’s name was Don Messick who was a veteran voice actor. He did Astro for the cartoon show The Jetsons back in 1962-63. Then he did Scooby in the cartoon Scooby Doo, Where Are You from 1969-75. I had never put it together that it was the same guy.
When you think about it though, they do talk quite a bit alike. Don also did Bamm Bamm from the Flintstones and Dr. Quest from the cartoon adventure Jonny Quest.
