Many years ago I watched a Saturday morning show called Hot Wheels. Did any notable actors provide the voices?

Hot Wheels was a short-lived 1969 cartoon series based on the popular Mattel toy cars of the same name. The show marked the TV debut of Albert Brooks, who provided one of the driver's voices and went on to fame as a Hollywood writer, actor and director. Radio DJ Casey Kasem also was among the cast, as was Bob Arbogast, whose familiar voice also was heard on The Jetsons, Scooby Doo, Roger Ramjet and Sesame Street.
