The vocal "Scooby-Doo Where Are You!" theme was not the original theme composed for this series; musical director Ted Nichols had originally composed an instrumental theme for the show, which alternates with the the more familiar David Mook/Ben Raleigh theme (which was recorded three days before the premiere of the show on 13 September 1969) on the original broadcast prints of the show. Nichols incorporated his tune as the main recurring theme for the incidental music score, and a truncated version of it underscores all the episode title cards for both this series and The New Scooby-Doo Movies (1972). Episode 1.1 "What a Night For a Knight" (13 September 1969) used the Nichols instrumental theme under the opening credits sequence, with the Mook/Raleigh tune for the closing credits. Episode 1.2 "A Clue for Scooby-Doo" (20 September 1969) was the only one to feature Nichols' theme for both opening and closing credits. The following episodes used the Mook/Raleigh theme for the opening credits and the Nichols instrumental theme under the closing credits sequence: episode 1.3 "Hassle in the Castle" (27 September 1969, episode 1.13 "Which Witch is Which?" (6 December 1969), and episode 1.16 "A Night of Fright is No Delight" (10 January 1970). All other episodes used Mook and Raleigh's theme for both opening and closing credits. See more »

I still think that Scooby Doo is a great cartoon. There's something that's magical about the work of Bill Hanna and Joseph Babera's work that stands out in my mind and now that these animation geniuses are gone there's nothing left but the memories of my childhood when Scooby Doo made a comeback along with the Flintstones, The Jetsons, and the Gobots. I can't thank Bill and Joe enough for their work because I have a lot of great memories of coming home from school and watching their shows that they made so memorable. I appreciated a lot of the work that Mr Hanna and Mr Barbera did and what it means to a lot of people.
It's something that will be with me for always.
