- One of the most iconic voices of radio and television is missing.

Scooby Doo, where are you?
(I’m pretty sure he was the original voice of Shaggy, maybe Scooby too).

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?

I think that Messick guy may have done Dr. Quest?

Messick was also the voice of Astro on "The Jetsons".

But, you are correct: he was the voice of Dr. Quest, as well:

I just checked his bio. He’s 82, so that may explain what’s up.

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.

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.

Is this hat you are talking about? I had to look it up,since I never heard about this (or forgot) http://articles.latimes.com/1991-12-15/local/me-741_1_arab-american-organization

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.

He was on the radio just last Saturday night, although the broadcast WAS from the 1970s.

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 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.”

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!
