Scott Innes: I've loved doing voice all my life ever since I was in grade school, so I guess it just came natural.

ScoobyAddicts.com: What made you decide to read for the voices of Shaggy and Scooby?

Scott Innes: I had done a scooby doo & shaggy parody song on my radio show and someone called and said you should call hanna-barbera and play it for them..so I did and it turns out they were casting for a scooby for "scooby doo on zombie island" my dear friend and voice of Scooby doo Don Messick was ill and no longer doing the voice, so when they heard my scooby doo voice they asked me to read for the part! AND I GOT IT!! I'M STILL IN SHOCK!

ScoobyAddicts.com: Did you do anything special to get into the character of Scooby?

Scott Innes: Not really - all the phone conversations with my dear friend Don Messick over the years and watching the show it just came natural.

ScoobyAddicts.com: What are some challenges about being a voice actor?

Scott Innes: The re-takes!~ Like when your voicing a video game it's alot of work. Sometimes I may read one line 5 times before the director gets the take she wants! and there's 900 lines to read!!! It's alot of hard work on your voice! but I love scooby doo so it's worth every minute!

ScoobyAddicts.com: What are some rewards about being a voice actor?

Scott Innes: The fact that you get to bring to life a character! And make kids laugh!! And do these type of interviews.

ScoobyAddicts.com: How do your kids feel about you being the voice of Scooby and Shaggy? Do they ever ask you to do the voices?

Scott Innes: All the time, my 7 year old pimps me out all the time for all his friends at school!! It really is cool to have your child want to bring you to school for show & tell! I had a parent the other day say to me you're scooby doo! I drive a cab...how do I top that?

ScoobyAddicts.com: Was there any tension between you and Casey Kasem from the times you voiced Shaggy?

Scott Innes: NOT AT ALL...YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND I'm a huge Casey Kasem fan!!!! I've ran american top 40 the countdown he hosted on radio for years! We've had many conversations over the years via phone. He's told me he loves my shaggy...and that means the world to me! Because I LOVE CASEY KASEM's shaggy!

In fact, I'm still voicing all things scooby doo, shaggy & scrappy doo still to this date like commercials, video games, talking toys..that's all me.

I guess there's enough scooby to go around...in fact I was just in voicing a new Valentine's day card for hallmark & a video game for V-tech yesterday.
