Scooby and Shaggy tell an Arabic Caliph two stories, the first about Aliyah-din, a young girl aided by two genies played Yogi and Boo-Boo and the second about Sinbad the Sailor played by Magilla Gorilla.
Most of the original production staff for this show (including producer Tom Ruegger) left the project after the first season. They went to Warner Bros. to restart their long-moribund animation department; their first project there was Tiny Toon Adventures (1990). In an interview with Nostalgia Critic (2007) in 2010, Ruegger stated that this show was what got him and his team the job. See more »
First things first, A Pup Named Scooby Doo isn't the best Scooby Doo incarnation, the original series Scooby Doo Where Are You? in my opinion is unmatched. But it is not the worst, not like the abysmal Shaggy and Scooby Doo:Get a Clue. This was a cute and interesting series. Albeit it is flawed, the stories are fun if predictable, some episodes feel a little rushed and Fred and his personality annoyed me this time around. However, the animation is colourful, solid and a big step-up from the somewhat dreary style in the incarnations with Scrappy put in the equation and the music and songs by John Debney are great fun. The writing is funny, and Mystery Inc. have an easy-going chemistry still. Shaggy and Scooby never fail to bring a smile to my face, Scooby is so cute here, and I personally didn't mind Velma and Daphne here. The voice acting is solid too from Don Messick to Casey Kasem. Overall, a cute and interesting series without being definitive, but it never tried to be. I agree about the DVDs, they don't do this show any justice. 7/10 Bethany Cox
