Fun With Scissors - part 14
My favorite voice actor of all time is Don Messick. His voice, probably most familiar as Dr. Benton Quest, or Ranger Smith on "Yogi Bear" (he was also the voice of Boo-Boo), was also immediately recognizable in what seemed like every single cartoon produced at Hanna-Barbera. He also had quite a bit of range, voicing characters such as Scooby-Doo, Astro of "The Jetsons" and even the gelatinous shape-shifters, Gloop and Gleep, on "The Herculoids." He died in 1997, the result of a stroke, but his voice lives on.
