Scooby-Doo is a long-running American animated series produced for Saturday morning television in several different versions from 1969 to the present.
The original series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Hanna-Barbera produced numerous spin-offs and related works until being absorbed in 2001 into Warner Bros. Animation, which has handled production since then. Although the format of the show and the cast and ages of characters have varied significantly over the years, the most familiar versions of the show feature a talking dog named Scooby-Doo and four teenagers: Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
Shaggy Rogers. Later versions of Scooby-Doo featured different variations on the show's supernatural theme, and include characters such as Scooby's cousin Scooby-Dum and nephew Scrappy-Doo in addition to or instead of some of the original characters. Repeats of the series are broadcast frequently on the Cartoon Network and Boomerang in the United States and other countries. Most of these shows were Hanna-Barbera action cartoons such as Jonny Quest, Space Ghost and The Herculoids, and virtually all of them were canceled by 1969 because of pressure from the parent groups.
Members of these watchgroups served as advisers to Hanna-Barbera and other animation studios to ensure that their new programs would be safe for children. The result was The Archie Show, based upon Bob Montana's teenage humor comic book Archie.
Silverman was eager to expand upon this success, and contacted producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
possibly creating another show based around a teenage rock group, but with an extra spice: the kids would find mysteries in between their gigs. Ruby and Spears were unable to decide whether Too Much would be a large cowardly dog or a small feisty dog. When the former was chosen, the options became a large goofy German Shepherd or a big shaggy sheepdog.
After consulting with Barbera on the issue, Too Much was finally set as a Great Dane, primarily to avoid a direct correlation to The Archies who had a sheepdog, Hot Dog, in their band. Ruby and Spears feared the Great Dane would be too similar to the comic strip character Marmaduke, but Barbera assured them it would not be a problem.
Takamoto consulted a studio colleague who happened to be a breeder of Great Danes. After learning the characteristics of a prize-winning Great Dane from her, Takamoto proceeded to break most of the rules and designed Too Much with overly bowed legs, a double chin, and a sloped back, among other abnormalities. Also, Silverman—not being very fond of the name Mysteries Five—had renamed the show Who's S-S-Scared? Using storyboards, presentation boards, and a short completed animation sequence, Silverman presented Who's S-S-Scared?
The executives felt that the presentation artwork was too spooky for young viewers and, thinking the show would be the same, decided to pass on it. Now without a centerpiece for the upcoming season's programming, Silverman turned to Ruby and Spears, who reworked the show to make it more comedic and Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
frightening. They dropped the rock band element, and began to focus more attention on Shaggy and Too Much. Seventeen episodes of Scooby-Doo were produced in 1969. The series' eponymous theme song was written by David Mook and Ben Raleigh, and performed by Larry Marks. The core premise of Scooby-Doo, Where are You! Both series featured four youths with a dog, and the Famous Five stories would often revolve around a mystery which would invariably turn out not to be mysterious but a plot to disguise the villain's true intents.
The roles of each character are strongly defined in the series: Fred is the leader and the determined detective, Velma is the Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day? analyst, Daphne is danger-prone, and Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are cowardly types more motivated by hunger than any desire to solve mysteries.
Later versions of the show would make slight changes to the characters' established roles, most notably in the character of Daphne, shown in 1990s and 2000s Scooby-Doo productions as knowing many forms of karate and being able to defend herself. The plot of each episode followed a formula that would serve as a template for many of the later incarnations of the series: 1: At the beginning of the episode, the Mystery, Inc. In first group are Fred, Velma sometimes she isn't in this group and Daphne.
The second group are Scooby and Shaggy sometimes Velma accompanies them. Scooby and Shaggy try to lose the monster. Daphne very often ends up being captured by the monster. Sometimes Daphne is rescued by Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day? and Shaggy, but usually is rescued by Fred and Velma. Velma often ends up dropping her glasses and unable to see anything.
Velma then reunites with her glasses. They capture the monster, often with the use of a Rube Goldberg-type contraption built by Fred, and bring him to the police.
Shaggy tries to eat something, but Scooby beats him to the punch. The eight 1970 episodes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! This season also marked an attempt at providing a real mystery with multiple suspects and red herring clues.
Both seasons contained a laugh track, which was the standard practice for U. In 1972, after 25 half-hour episodes, the program was doubled to a full hour and called The New Scooby-Doo Movies, each episode of which featured a different guest star helping the gang solve mysteries. Hanna-Barbera musical director Hoyt Curtin composed a new theme song for this series, and Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
theme would remain in use for much of Scooby-Doo's original broadcast run. Hanna-Barbera proceeded to repeat the Scooby Doo formula many times over. By the time Scooby-Doo had its first format change in 1972, Hanna-Barbera had produced three other teenager-based shows that were very similar to Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
in concept and execution: Josie and the Pussycats 1970which resurrected the idea of the rock band to the teenage-crime-fighter formula; The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show 1971which re-imagined the toddlers from The Flintstones as high Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
students; and the most blatant Scooby clone, The Funky Phantom also 1971which featured three teens, a real ghost and his ghostly cat solving spooky mysteries. Later cartoons such as The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan 1972 ; Goober and the Ghost Chasers, Speed Buggy, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids, and Inch High, Private Eye Does Boomerang sell breakfast all day?
1973 ; Clue Club and Jabberjaw both 1976 ; Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels 1977 ; Buford and the Galloping Ghost 1978 ; and the Pebbles, Dino, and Bamm-Bamm segments of The Flintstone Comedy Show 1980 would all involve groups of teenagers solving mysteries or fighting crime in the same vein as Scooby-Doo, usually with the help of a wacky animal, ghost, etc.
Some of these shows even used the same voice actors and score cues. Even outside studios got in on the act: when Joe Ruby and Ken Spears left H-B in 1977 and started Ruby-Spears Productions, their first cartoon was Fangface, yet another mystery-solving Scooby clone. During the 1970s, the imitating programs successfully coexisted alongside Scooby on Saturday mornings. This hour-long package show later evolved into the longer programming blocks Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics 1977—1978 and Scooby's All-Stars 1978—1979.
New Scooby episodes, in the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Four of these episodes featured Scooby's dim-witted country cousin Scooby-Dum as a semi-regular character. The Scooby-Doo episodes produced during these three seasons were later packaged together for syndication as The Scooby-Doo Show, under which title they continue to air.
For the Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics and Scooby's All-Stars programming blocks, Scooby-Doo was packaged alongside Laff-A-Lympics, a new Hanna-Barbera cartoon featuring many of its characters in parodies of Olympic sporting events.
After Nicole Jaffe retired from acting, Pat Stevens took over her role as Velma Dinkley. In 1979, Scooby's tiny nephew Scrappy-Doo was added to both the series and the billing, in an attempt to boost Scooby-Doo's slipping ratings.
The 1979—1980 episodes, aired under the title Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, succeeded in regenerating interest in the show, and as a result the entire show was overhauled in 1980 to focus more upon Scrappy-Doo.
At this time, Scooby-Doo started to walk and run anthropomorphically on two feet more often, rather than on four like a normal dog as he did previously. Fred, Daphne, and Velma were dropped from the series, and the new Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo format was now composed of three seven-minute comedic adventures starring Scooby, Scrappy, and Shaggy instead of one half-hour mystery.
Daphne returned to the cast for The All-New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show in 1983, which comprised two 11-minute episodes in a format reminiscent of the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! This version of the show lasted for two seasons, with the second season airing under the title The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries and featuring semi-regular appearances from Fred and Velma.
Velma in this series was voiced by Pat Stevens, then by Marla Frumkin. Reruns of previous Scooby episodes, however, continued to air, both as part of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Funhouse package and under the New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show banner.

in that the paranormal is real and the skepticism of the original series is ridiculed. Various elements of that formula are parodied in both movies. While the first film had generally original characters as the villains except for one villain revealed as a surprise plot twistthe second film featured several of the monsters from the television series, including the Black Knight, the 10,000 Volt Ghost, the Pterodactyl Ghost, the Miner 49er, and Chickenstein.
The animated versions of Shaggy and Scooby make a cameo appearance in the 2003 film Looney Tunes: Back in Action, complaining to Matthew Lillard about how they were portrayed in the live action films.

Like many Hanna-Barbera shows, Scooby-Doo was criticized for poor production values and formulaic storytelling. As for the animation -- well, the drawings on your refrigerator may give it competition.

The show's mix of the comedy-adventure and horror genres is often noted as the reason for its widespread success. As Fred Silverman and the Hanna-Barbera staff had planned when they first began producing the series, Scooby-Doo's ghosts, monsters, and spooky locales tend more towards humor than horror, making them easily accessible to younger children.
