An updated version of the classic Hannah-Barbera mystery cartoon. Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo travel from town to town in their van, The Mystery Machine, solving cases of hauntings, monsters and unexplained occurrences. Joining the gang is Scooby's pint-sized nephew, Scrappy-Doo. Unlike his uncle, the little pup is constantly looking for a fight, and it is all Scooby and Shaggy can do to keep him from hurtling head-on into every ghost and monster they encounter. Of course, after doing a little investigating, the hauntings always have a more down-to-earth explanation. Written by

After the first season (from Episode "The Scarab lives" to Episode "The Ransom of Scooby Chief") of this show, the shorts were made with only Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy doo. The absence of the characters Fred, Velma and Daphne was due to some of the voice actors involved in the Strike and Emmy Awards boycott of 1980. After Episode "The Ransom of Scooby Chief", Don Messick "had" to replace Lennie Weinrib as the voice actor for Scrappy Doo. See more »
Scooby's laff-a-lympics had enter it's third season and along with another Scooby Doo cartoon. I enjoyed Scooby up into his annoying nephew came in the picture. Since his brave-hearted nephew came on the scene the chase scenes died down. I loved the chase scenes in the Scooby Doo cartoons especially when Scoob and Shaggy disguise themselves to get away from the villains. Till this day I wonder how this little pup became so popular that Hanna-Barbera took Fred,Daphne,and Velma off the show. In 1983 this mutt had his own show (puppy new adventures) supposedly a spin-off. Then the rest of the gang returned a year later with the show titled "Scooby's New Mysteries". I wonder how this mutt kept five years of popularity without the whole Scooby mysteries inc. gang.
