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 »
Well... Scoob & Shag and the gang were great. They're still as popular today with the kiddies as they were 20(!) years ago!
BUT... it is a fairly commonly-held perception that Scrappy Doo was the WORST thing that ever happened to saturday morning cartoons. Who at Hanna-Barbera decided that Scooby Doo needed a sidekick? And one with an annoying voice at well. Sure, his foolhardy bravado provided a counterpoint to Shaggy and Scooby's cowardice but for most people it was the end of an enjoyable series... and a premonition of the sludge that was soon to flood the Saturday morning airwaves.
