As a kid, did you notice that some cartoon characters sounded similar to others? This is because voice actors are recognized by their voice, not their face, and as a result, they can bring life to all types of animated characters. If they can change the gender of their voice, they can voice both male and female characters.
On Sunday, June 15, 2014, the world lost one of the greatest American voice actors. Kasem’s family shared his last moments on Father’s Day. Kasem was born in Detroit, Michigan on April 27, 1932, during the Great Depression. Despite this, Casey Kasem thrived in the entertainment industry.
Though he is known for being a disc jockey (DJ) for American Top 40, Kasem spent over fifty years of his life as a voice actor. In his career, Kasem voiced multiple characters in TV series. Sometimes he voiced a few characters in one show. Kasem has done many television movies as well.
