CASEY KASEM, LEGENDARY BROADCASTER AND VOICE OF SHAGGY, ROBIN AND MORE, R.I.P.

By Andrew Wheeler

Radio host Casey Kasem, known to generations as the voice of pop music countdown shows for close to four decades, passed away early Sunday morning at a hospital outside Seattle, according to a Facebook post by his daughter Kerri.

Kasem provided voices for a number of well-loved cartoon characters. His most celebrated role was Shaggy in various Scooby-Doo cartoons, starting with Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in 1969. He was also the voice of Robin in Hanna-Barbera’s cartoons based on DC superheroes, and the voice of Mark in Battle of the Planets, the U.S. adaptation of the anime series Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.
