When this show was on I watched it every time I could! I thought that the characters were really funny and all had great personalities. The animation in My opinion was crisp, clean, and really clear. Not to mention beautiful! Most of the characters in this show are hilarious like Looney Tunes characters that we all love. in My opinion these characters are the funnies and talented ever seen. In fact, The things that goes on in this series' cartoons are in My opinion nuts which that is what makes them hilarious! There are so many to like and laugh at and the silly things they do! If you like the original Looney Tunes then I strongly recommend that you watch this show!

I recall watching this show on Saturday mornings in 1982. After sharing
the spotlight with Richie Rich in 1980 and I guess 1981, Scooby shares
his hour with some cartoon called the Puppy's New/Further/Great
Adventures (Whatever!) I didn't care for it and choose not to comment
on that portion. As for Scooby, this was one of the more mediocre and
more forgettable shows.
Again, it's just Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy in only 2 episodes. Sometimes, they attempted to solve mysteries by working for Shaggy's unseen Uncle Fearless Detective Agency and other times, it was more like the funny shorts of 1980. The third short was something most deplorable. The moronic writers decided to put Scrappy Doo with another canine Uncle named Yabba Doo who was braver than Scooby and Yabba was owned by a Shaggylike character named Deputy Dusty. I'd forgotten his name until I found it on a Scooby website.
I'm sorry, but this series is so pitiful, that apparently, Hanna Barbera removed these shows and wisely changed the name to the Scooby Doo Puppy Hour and reinserted the classic shows from 1969-1970 and some of the episodes from 1976.
This show is bad, but not as bad as what is to come several years down the road.
Scrappy Doo: He is what some consider to be the most hated cartoon
of all time. Call me odd, but I got a huge kick out of the little dog. Yes
he was loud, and yes he tended to go a bit overboard, but he seemed to be
the exact opposite of his uncle, Scooby doo. And in many cases, opposite
personalities make for great situation comedy. While traditionalist fans
the show hated the addition, perhaps Scrappy was added in order to
younger children....the audience producers were aiming for in that time
The Puppy's Further Adventures: This show was the "Puppy" part of the title and told the story of Petey, a dog searching for his lost master. This lesser known show was a favorite of mine, and sadly there are no DVD's or VHS releases produce as of yet of this gentle but engrossing series of stories. Hopefully they will someday, as there were quite a few fans of Petey and the gang.
Now I love Scooby Doo, he was part of my childhood. However apart from
the voice work of Frank Welker, Don Messick and Casey Kasem, the decent
music and also the presence of Scooby and Shaggy, I never did like this
series. In fact I find it very mediocre, and one of the weaker Scooby
Doo series with Shaggy and Scooby Doo! Get a Clue being the worst.
The animation quality was unimpressive. The backgrounds lack fluidity, the colours look flat and the character designs are inconsistent and off model. The story lines are uninteresting on the whole and hold few surprises, while the writing complete with tired jokes and unfunny dialogue contributes to making it one of the weakest-written Scooby Doo series.
The characters are mostly unengaging. Scooby and Shaggy are exceptions, they are very likable characters and Messick and Kasem are great voice actors and always give their all no matter how bad the material is. Fred is alright, but Daphne and Velma are underused, the support characters are dull and some of the voice actors sound as though they are overdoing it to make up for the writing, while Scrappy manages to be more annoying than he was when he dominated the later episodes of the Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show.
All in all, even for Scooby Doo, this is a mediocre and poorly done series. 3/10 Bethany Cox
Scrappy stole the show with his loving, energetic, bold performance. I
him and he does not deserve all the bad press. An articulate puppy without
fear was the perfect companion for the cowardly duo. There were real
monsters too and lots of comic moments. I prefer episodes with Scrappy to
those without him. He did not harm the show. He added entertainment value
and once he was in he stayed. So some of the public must have liked him.
Scooby & Shaggy certainly did. He might have caused trouble but he also
splatted the monsters. A good friend to have really. The accompanying
cartoon wasn't bad either. How could anyone resist a puppy? Puppy power!
