He was at Hanna-Barbera doing a recording session in 1997, when suddenly he stood up and left, stating he couldn't do voices any longer.[[note]] Messick had suffered a stroke while in the booth, and in fact he died less than a week later.[[/note]] Everybody present sensed that Messick was retiring, so they held a retirement dinner for him. Guests did speeches, and then Messick stepped up and said "Thank you" to everyone in Scooby-Doo's voice. One guest said, "Don spent years giving Scooby-Doo his voice, and now Scooby's helping Don to express himself."

*** Creator/ScottMcNeil voices and portrays the film's BigBad of ''Monsters Unleashed'' while they're in disguise.

*** Creator/BobPapenbrook as the Black Knight Ghost[[note]] though only the voice; the suit was donned by Creator/KevinDurand[[/note]]
*** Michael Sorich[[note]] better known as [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Squatt]][[/note]] was [[ActingForTwo both]] the Tar Monster and [[CanonForeigner The Cotton Candy Blob]].

* WagTheDirector: Casey Kasem stopped voicing Shaggy in 1997 after refusing to voice the character in a Burger King commercial, since Kasem was a devout vegetarian. He returned to voicing Shaggy in 2002 under the condition that Shaggy became a vegetarian like Casem himself. Now that Kasem is gone, Shaggy has gone back to his old ways.

* CreatorBacklash: Joe Ruby and Ken Spears didn't like ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', feeling that it missed the point of the characters and was too cynical. Some other writers seem to agree, as a few of the Direct-to-DVD have at least one joke at the series expense, which is somewhat bizarre when the films take at least some of the direction and chemistry from ''Mystery Incorporated''.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: When CBS brought ''Where Are You!'' back in 1974 after a two-year hiatus, Hanna-Barbera wanted to make new episodes. But CBS felt they could get just as much mileage, if not more, from repeats. CBS would cancel Scooby on August 7, 1976, a full month before the new season began. A week later, Scooby (which moved to ABC a month later) was replaced on CBS with Scooby clone ''WesternAnimation/ClueClub''.
