Storyline

Popular animated series featuring Scooby-Doo, a Great Dane who joins four California high school students (Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy) on many quests to solve strange mysteries. Each mystery is current and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. The gang were always driving in the Mystery Machine, returning from or going to a regular teenage function, when their van develops engine trouble or breaks down for a variety of reasons. Their (unintended) destination turns out to be suffering a monster problem, and the gang volunteers to investigate the case. Eventually, enough clues are found to convince the gang that the ghost or monster was a villain. Invariably, the ghost or monster was apprehended and revealed to be an apparently blameless authority figure or otherwise innocuous local who uses the disguise to cover up a crime or scam. After proclaiming "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!", ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

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 September 13, 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). Scooby Doo, Where Are You!: What a Night for a Knight (1969) (September 13, 1969) used the Nichols instrumental theme under the opening credits sequence, with the Mook/Raleigh tune for the closing credits. Scooby Doo, Where Are You!: A Clue for Scooby Doo (1969) (September 20, 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: Scooby Doo, Where Are You!: Hassle in the Castle (1969) (September 27, 1969), Scooby Doo, Where Are You!: Which Witch Is Which? (1969) (December 6, 1969), and Scooby Doo, Where Are You!: A Night of Fright Is No Delight (1970) (January 10, 1970). All other episodes used Mook and Raleigh's theme for both opening and closing credits. See more »

The Best Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series
18 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I have many fond memories of Scooby-Doo. It is without a doubt one of the finest series ever made despite the fact that the stories were very similar.

Each episode would consist of the gang in their Mystery Machine stumbling across a haunted house or haunted something. They would look for clues, Scooby and Shaggy would eat a lot, Scooby and Shaggy would get scared, the ghost/demon/monster/zombie would be caught and unmasked and the gang would live happily ever after.

It's one of those great cartoon set in a totally different world. Where, for instance, did the gang live? Did anyone ever see their house? What were their jobs? Where did they get the money from to fill the van up with petrol? Did their parents know what they were doing?

All the episodes were great and it was also great to see Scooby's nephew Scrappy Doo as well. This was a great series and I cannot recommend it enough. It was brilliant.

Scooby-Dooby Doo!
