Don Messick was one of the most prolific American voice actors of the 20th century. Other than Scooby-Doo, notable roles include Papa Smurf from The Smurfs, Astro from The Jetsons, and Boo Boo and Ranger Smith from Yogi Bear.

During a recording session in 1996, he had a stroke and quit soon after. The following year, he died of a second stroke, at 71. Scooby-Doo On Zombie Island was dedicated to him as it was the first official Scooby-Doo production without him as the voice of Scooby-Doo and was succeeded by Scott Innes. Previously to that the Johnny Bravo crossover episode, Bravo Dooby-Doo, also had Hadley Kay as Scooby as Messick was too sick by then.
