Popular animated series featuring Scooby-Doo, a Great Dane who joins four California high school students (Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy) on many quests to solve strange mysteries. Each mystery is current and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. The gang were always driving in the Mystery Machine, returning from or going to a regular teenage function, when their van develops engine trouble or breaks down for a variety of reasons. Their (unintended) destination turns out to be suffering a monster problem, and the gang volunteers to investigate the case. Eventually, enough clues are found to convince the gang that the ghost or monster was a villain. Invariably, the ghost or monster was apprehended and revealed to be an apparently blameless authority figure or otherwise innocuous local who uses the disguise to cover up a crime or scam. After proclaiming "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!", ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Though consistently a semi-anthropomorphic character in his various incarnations, Scooby shows more dog-like traits in this series than he would in later incarnations, where his characteristics would lean more towards the human side. Things like barking and growling and using charades in place of longer sentences would get used less, and he would begin to say more than three or four words at a time. See more »

Alternate Versions

The re-run prints that first aired on CBS in 1971 feature standardized opening title music for all first season episodes. A number of the first season episodes feature alternate opening (and/or closing) theme music (see trivia). Excepting prints aired on cable between between 1990 and 1998 (which were time-compressed copies of the original broadcast prints, all but the first two missing their laugh tracks), all re-runs of this show use the 1971 prints.

Even Though It Started 7 Years Before My Time
28 February 2007 | by blackarachnia2See all my reviews

I still think that Scooby Doo is a great cartoon. There's something that's magical about the work of Bill Hanna and Joseph Babera's work that stands out in my mind and now that these animation geniuses are gone there's nothing left but the memories of my childhood when Scooby Doo made a comeback along with the Flintstones, The Jetsons, and the Gobots. I can't thank Bill and Joe enough for their work because I have a lot of great memories of coming home from school and watching their shows that they made so memorable. I appreciated a lot of the work that Mr Hanna and Mr Barbera did and what it means to a lot of people.

It's something that will be with me for always.
