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 »
Decent entertainment for kids, disappointing for fans
I grew up on Scooby Doo Where Are You, and I still love it. It is one of my favourite cartoons along with Darkwing Duck, Talespin, Peter Pan and the Pirates and Tom and Jerry. This show though is good for kids, the voices are good(Don Messick and Casey Kasem are perfect as Scooby and Shaggy), the theme tune is tolerable and it has some nice animation in the first season. However it is rather disappointing. I normally don't mind Scrappy, but when he appears to be like the main character, it gets annoying fast. Complete with the over-used catchphrase Puppy Power and ear-grating voice, Scrappy is more annoying than usual. Also half the gang are missing after the first year, somehow it didn't feel like Scooby Doo. And the jokes and the story lines after that point were in general lame and unoriginal(though the first season did have some tired jokes and could have had more edge, not much atmosphere here though somewhat fun), very little chasing monsters or unmasking the baddies. As for the villains in the season where all the gang were present, only Lady Vampire and Night Ghoul are the ones I deem memorable, others were either forgettable(Ghost of Jeremiah Pratt and Sky Skeleton) or too obvious(Alien and Blue Scarab) and most while not particularly inspired are acceptable. All in all, not as bad as Shaggy and Scooby Doo:Get a Clue, but this show is disappointing. 4/10 for the animation, voices, theme tune and the fact it is nice for kids. Bethany Cox
