- One of the most iconic voices of radio and television is missing.
A judge has now ordered state officials to look for radio legend Casey Kasem.
The order came after a lawyer for Kasem's wife, Jean, told the judge he didn't know where Kasem was.

“The Little Drummer Boy”?
Scooby Doo, where are you?
(I’m pretty sure he was the original voice of Shaggy, maybe Scooby too).
I thought I heard on the radio he passed away ( last year?)
According to IMDB, Kasem was Shaggy, with Don Messick being the voice of Scooby.
He is Lebanese Druze (a sect of Shi’ite Islam). Maybe he’s counting them down with Allah these days?
Messick was also the voice of Astro on "The Jetsons".
But, you are correct: he was the voice of Dr. Quest, as well:
Casem has Parkinson's, and reportedly can't speak.
His wife is engaged in a court battle with Kasem's adult daughters (from a previous marriage). She claims she doesn't know where he is, but one of the daughters believes she took him out of the country.
I hope he’s okay.
That said, might wanna check and see if he is with nanna or Sid.
Since this is a Muzzie family fratricide isn’t completely out of the question.
If he is counting them down with Allah I hope this song makes it to number one.

Kasem voiced a few cartoon characters... most notably for me, (as it was my favorite cartoon when I was in 1st grade), he voiced Mark, the Leader of G-Force in Battle of The Planets.
Probably not safe for work.
The half-hour children's show, produced in 1968, portrays Arabs; as money-grubbing, fat, ugly, hook-nosed kidnapers, the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee said.
I probably heard about it at the time, but my brain has trouble sometimes finding the memories.
Are you sure he’s a Muslim?
He’s from the Detroit area, and the overwhelming majority of Arabs living there are Christians.
Or at least they were when he was born 82 years ago.
I think Don Messick was Scooby Doo.
He was on the radio just last Saturday night, although the broadcast WAS from the 1970s.
They're on the case!
Debbie Schussel is usually accurate. Hard to believe but Casey was born of Druze Muslim parents. Your logic is correct that just about all Arab immigrants back then were Christian. I am thinking Caesey’s parents were not very religious but the key to Druze version of Islam is that it has many Christian elements anyways
I loved that show.
I remember that!
I got it....Casey is wearing the Shaggy mask.
Then they’ll remove the mask revealing that it’s Casey, then he goes, “I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids.”
"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision
of what is before them, glory and danger alike,
and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."
Kasem was born Kemal Amin Kasem in Detroit, Michigan, on April 27, 1932 to Lebanese Druze parents who emigrated from the British Mandate of Palestine to Lebanon. After arriving in the United States, they settled in Michigan, where they worked as grocers. Kasem is a graduate of Northwestern High School in Detroit and Wayne State University.
What’s interesting about the Druze is that the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) employs them as trackers to hunt down Muzzie terrorists.
Whether tracking terrorists or music hits the Druze are getting it done!
