Toon In – Don Messick’s “Unbirthday” Message To Hayden Kays

Welcome back to another installment of Toon In. While normally this would be a moment in the week to share a worthy animated short or cartoon episode for your viewing pleasure we are going with something different this time.

I happened upon this message from the legendary voice actor Don Messick the other day and felt it needed to be shared. In the two and half minute greeting he presents an Unbirthday wish to the listener by the name of Hayden with a little help from the characters he helped make famous like Scooby-Doo, Scrappy-Doo, Boo-Boo Bear, Papa Smurf, Droopy, Ricochet Rabbit, and even Muttley!

So come Toon In and listen to this delightful gathering of classic animated characters courtesy of Don Messick!
