TV Shows - Scooby Doo

Starting in 1969, this cartoon had four teens and their big, talking dog (the title character) travel around in a (then) funky van called the Mystery Machine and they would almost inevitably stumble into some place that was supposed to be haunted. The supposed leader, the proto-yuppy Freddy and glasses-wearing Velma would try to come up with some intellectual explanation but the high strung quasi-beatnik Shaggy and his constant companion Scooby would have none of that. Usually, these two would get into all kinds of antics while chased by the alleged ghosts and somehow instantly change costumes to buy time (it was a cartoon after all) while the gorgeous Daphne would somehow be in need of rescuing(if she and Freddy hadn't disappeared from the scene). At the very end, Scooby would inevitably unmask the ghost/frauds, Velma and Freddy would explain how the ghost/frauds tried to pull of their stunts and almost always the ghost/frauds would utter that now-classic phrase "and I would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for you meddling kids!". This barebones formula became quite popular and soon even had some famous 'guest voices' playing themselves as ghost/fraud victims. Could this have ever boned the fish? Who here hasn't heard the phrase "If it ain't broke, fix it!"- and the name of Scrappy Doo?

1 I saw one of the later "spin-off" eps in which Shaggy was actually sporting a Mohawk instead of his usual "60s grunge" look. I didn't watch much beyond seeing that atrocity, so it's possible it was supposed to be a disguise of some sort (unless Shaggy had a twin?). If not, I can't even describe what a boning moment that was. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 10:22 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The original Scooby-doo was more mature down to earth type of show that was down more realistic, then other Scooby-doo spin off's which weren't all that good.When Scrappy-doo was added to the show it was more about him and less about Scooby-doo and the gang.He did save the show but he also ruining at the same time. -- Submitted By: () on May 9, 2012, 10:29 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 This who SHOW sucked!!! It was a Quick Draw-Ruff and Reddy/Archies remix shows shows how horrid the entire seventies animation shows were [the eighties were even worse.] This show was IMO not a classic. -- Submitted By: () on January 9, 2012, 1:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

5 It's no coincidence that Scrappy rhymes with crappy. I also didn't like when it was just Shaggy and Scooby without the others. Wisely, they brought back the entire gang for the newer additions, although those started bugging me because they played on the character stereotypes from the movies (Fred is arrogant, Daphene an airhead, etc.) and not the original series when Fred was courageous but nice and Daphene not necessarily intelligent, but not an airhead either. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 21, 2010, 6:00 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Scooby-Doo Where Are You, The Scooby-Doo Movies, The Scooby-Doo Show, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy Doo, The All-New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show, The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, What's New Scooby-Doo, Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated. Gee, you think that's enough Scooby-Doo shows? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2010, 6:11 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Scooby Doo is one of the best cartoons I have ever watched. The only problem is all the variations. I myself cannot keep track of everything that happens in every cartoon. The real human movies were sloppy aswell. -- Submitted By: (Zingsters) on November 22, 2010, 1:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Much as I love Scooby, I'm forced to admit that I hate (loathe, despise, revile, etc.) the new "Scooby Doo Mystery, Inc." on Cartoon Network. Not only have the original gang become pale imitations of themselves, but the dialog is lame & the "monsters" are truly pathetic. It's ALMOST enough to make me long for the days of- dare I say it- Scrappy Doo. -- Submitted By: (RJF) on October 28, 2010, 2:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Good ole Crappy Doo-Doo. What producer was originally responsible for coming up with the concept of introducing child/childlike spinoffs of popular cartoon characters anyway? Hanging's too good for him, whoever he was. Possibly the only worse 'progeny' cartoon characters were the Pink Panther's sons/nephews/bastards/purloined Haitian orphans/whatever they were. And Pink Panther had already boned big time when some idiot decided to make him a TALKING character. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 11:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Just to clarify what previous posters have talked about. First, Scrappy Doo was added. Then there were Made for TV Movies with just Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy. The show which you think you saw Daphne return wasn't Daphne at all, but another girl whose name I can't remember with the little Arab boy called "13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo" which was really the death of the good ol' Scooby shows when finally the ghosts were real. It wasn't even close to the original format and wasn't entertaining in the slightest. So, technically there were many incarnations of Scooby Doo, with the newest What's New Scooby Doo? bringing the old cast back. It's probably the best since the original Scooby Doo, Where Are You? -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on May 1, 2010, 11:30 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I loved the orginal series of this show. The hilarious "adult jokes" Scooby snacks are obviously marijuana... and of course Fred and Daphnie, the show was recycled, but the jokes and gags were solid. seeing Scrappy doo didn't suck, it was funny seeing Scooby and Shaggy cowering as a little dog stood up the monster. Yeah, the series defenatly boned when it sold out, the first few spin off shows and movies were good, but the last spinoffs from the franchise i liked were "Whats new scooby doo?" and scooby doo and the cyber chase". -- Submitted By: (internet_fan) on January 24, 2010, 6:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Yeah, Scrappy sucks Scooby Snak dust... ...on the other hand, would it have killed them to present the gang with a standard locked room murder mystery? A different flavor from the ghost chasing, but still.... -- Submitted By: (NotABot55) on October 30, 2009, 6:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Scrappy was the fish-boner, without a doubt. If the Scottish Site had been conceived a little earlier in television history, we might be referring to shows as having "pulled a Scrappy" or just "Scrappied." Scrappy was widely considered to be the worst cartoon character of all time, and single-handedly responsible for ruining Scooby-Doo, long before JTS was even a thought in the brain of the "Scottish sellout." Fortunately, the last couple of times the Cartoon Network has aired Scooby-Doo marathons, they've been smart emough to stick to the late 60s/early 70s episodes with the original cast and WITHOUT Scrappy. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 4, 2009, 6:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Not bad for the most part but I hated the episodes with just Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy all they did was run and grab Scrappy who was the only useful member despite his annoyance, I loved the first three movies in the late 90's they were so dark, violent, spooky, the monsters were real, and people actually died, some of the movies after wards were okay but they were tamer, what I didn't like about What's New Scooby Doo was Fred and Daphne were less intelligent than in earlier series and movies before then incarnations never goofed around. -- Submitted By: (comic_guy87) on May 28, 2009, 10:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Boned when they started messing with the cast. Scrappy was a little bearable at first, but once all the humans except Shaggy mysteriously vanished, he seemed to become more annoying. Then Daphne inexplicably returned, but none of the others. Then there was some annoying little kid. Only the classic crew of characters really made this show work. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on May 13, 2009, 3:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I am not too familiar with Josie and the Pussycats, so I was not aware that Casey Casem did both voices in these two different cartoons. thanks for the info!! -- Submitted By: (Riley2009) on April 3, 2009, 12:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I liked Casey's Shaggy,too, but did you ever see the crossover eps with 'Josie and the Pussycats' when Casey also did their producer Alexander (who loathed his twin/Josie's nemesis Alexandra)? Casey didn't make even the tiniest attempt to differentiate between Shag and Alexander and if you closed your eyes, you'd have had NO idea which character was speaking. Mel Blanc, Casey ain't! Still, his voice helped give the show a great deal- especially since his frantic, high-strung delivery was exact opposite of Casey's 'normal' voice! My opinion of Scrabby's unprintable, I fear . -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2009, 6:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 I always thought this show was lots of fun. and I especially thought it was cool that Kasey Kasem provided the voice of Shaggy! hee hee. I don't think it ever BTF! and I didn't really mind Scrappy Doo either. I thought he was kind of cute!!! -- Submitted By: (Riley2009) on April 2, 2009, 12:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
