Donald Earl Messick (7 September 1926 – 24 October 1997) was one of Hanna-Barbera's earliest superstar voice actors. His many roles included Boo Boo and Ranger Smith from The Yogi Bear Show, Scooby-Doo in the various Scooby-related series (and, after the original voice actor left the role, Scrappy-Doo), Astro in The Jetsons, and Papa Smurf in Smurfs. Messick retired from voice acting after suffering a stroke in 1996, and his retirement party was attended by many Hanna-Barbera figures. He made one final TV appearance as a guest in The Maury Povich Show telling of his history with Hanna-Barbera and explaining how voice tracks are made. In 1997, Messick died when he had a second stroke.
