Scooby-Doo - Cowardly Great Dane
dog created by Hanna-Barbera Productions for the cartoon series
SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU?/CBS/1969-76.
Scooby-Doo (voice of Don
Messick) reluctantly helped a group of four high school students
(Fred, Velma, Daphne and beatnik Shaggy) solve mysteries of the
supernatural kind amidst haunted mansions, slimy swamps, and dark
caves where some sort of monsters dwelled.
Scooby Doo's dim-witted
country cousin Scooby Dum debuted on THE SCOOBY-DOO/DYNOMUTT
HOUR/ABC/1978. In 1979, the series' creators introduced Scooby's
brave little nephew called Scrappy.
The Scooby character has
appeared in a variety of series. During the 1984-86 seasons THE NEW
SCOOBY-DOO MYSTERIES, SCARY SCOOBY FUNNIES, THE 13 GHOSTS OF SCOOBY-DOO
and SCOOBY'S MYSTERY FUNHOUSE graced the airwaves. A PUP NAMED
SCOOBY-DOO/ABC/1988 chronicled the formative years of this cowardly
TRIVIA NOTE: Reportedly, CBS exec Fred Silverman
got "Scooby's name from listening to the "scooby-dooby-doo" lyrics
sung by Frank Sinatra in his hit song "Strangers in the Night."
