Popular cartoon series featuring Scooby Doo, a dog who joins Velma, Daphne, Freddie, and Shaggy on many quests to solve mysterious. Each mystery is new and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. Written by
"Too Much" (later Scooby-Doo) was originally written as a Great Dane, but fearing their creation would be too close to the titular character in the comic strip "Marmaduke," creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears changed Scooby/"Too-Much" to be a big, sloppy sheepdog (which itself was far too close to "Hot Dog" from the "Archie" comics that inspired the series). After meeting with Hanna and Barbera about the issue, Scooby was changed back to a Great Dane. Character designer Iwao Takamoto went to a dog-breeding colleague at the studio for advice on what elements made up a prize-winning Great Dane, and then preceded to break every "rule" in his design of Scooby, including the double-chin, the bow-legged hind-legs, and the spots on his back (No *real* Great Dane has spots). Scooby's utter lack of prize-winning characteristics is spoofed in episode 1.5, "Decoy for a Dognapper." See more »

"Scooby-Doo, Where are you!" is probably my favorite "Scooby-Doo" show. Each episode featured Scooby, and the gang riding along in their van called "The Mystery Machine", and stumble into a mystery. Along the way, the gang would discover clues, Shaggy and Scooby would be eating a lot, and get scared constantly, the ghost/demon/monster/zombie whatnot would be unmasked unveiling someone that the gang encountered earlier, and that would be that for the half-an-hour of programming bliss.
I have to agree with the majority, this has to be Hanna-Barbera's CROWNING achievement, and I hope it's on for years to come (just a little less with Cartoon Network airing it too much). This gets a perfect 10!!
SCOOBY DOOBY DOO!!!!!!!!!
