I watched some old episodes of Battle of the Planets on DVD recently, which got me thinking about what Kasem has been up to lately. I was saddened to read that Kasem, 82, is suffering from dementia, and that his wife and daughter are involved in a messy legal dispute over his custody and care.
Kasem came across as warm and friendly, and in an interview on the Battle of the Planets DVD, said that it was his favourite of all of the animated series that he worked on. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time.
Postscript: Kasem died on June 15, 2014.
