Did You Know?


The show was originally created to expand upon the success of The Archie Show (1968). Series creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and Scooby-Doo writer Mark Evanier have stated that the teenagers were based on characters from another CBS show, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959). Fred was based on Dobie Gillis, Daphne on Thalia Menninger, Velma on Zelda Gilroy, and Shaggy on Maynard G. Krebs (even having similar goatee beards and hairstyles). Another influence was the 1940s radio drama "I Love a Mystery"; the concept was also similar to Enid Blyton's Famous Five books. See more »

Revisiting my childhood!
14 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was my favourite TV show when I was about 10, now at 17 I still love it. I can't help it, it is a classic. This show has great animation for its time, and I find the show enormously entertaining. I love the theme tune, very catchy, and the writing is always amusing. I love the characters too, especially Scooby, wonderfully voiced by Don Messick, and Casey Kasem as Shaggy never fails to bring a smile to my face. Fred, Velma and Daphne are great too, and the villains are memorable with only 49ner being a disappointment(too obvious), from Captain Redbeard, the Creeper and the really creepy ghost of Captain Cutler, I can't actually decide which one's my favourite. As much as I like the Scooby Doo Show and most of the movies, this show will always be my favourite. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
