An updated version of the classic Hanna-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 "The Scarab lives" to "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 "The Ransom of Scooby Chief", Don Messick "had" to replace Lennie Weinrib as the voice actor for Scrappy Doo. See more »
The most dynamic series by far (with the exception of Scrappy)
This was actually my favorite series of Scooby Doo when I was younger. I thought each episode had more of an edge to it and the villains had a lot of creative thought put into them (and even very scary and believable as well). Some of the best episodes were "I Left My Neck In San Francisco", "Twenty Thousand Screams Under The Sea", "The Ghoul, The Bat And The Ugly" and "When You Wish Upon A Star Creature". If you have never seen these episodes please do. This series was a bit of a mixed bag though as there were other episodes which didn't seem to have the same kind of edge to them such as "Rocky Mountain YIIII!" and "The Ransom Of Scooby Chief". As like the series before it, it was very well put together, interesting storyline and brilliantly drawn. As everyone says though, it would have been so much better without Scrappy Doo. The character was tiresome and distracting to the story that was being told.
