Scooby Doo, Where Are You!

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! was a Saturday morning cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera from 1969-1970). The show included four teenagers (Freddie, Daphne, Velma, and Shaggy) and a large goofy dog (Scooby-Doo, of course!) who solved supernatural-related mysteries.

My favorite memories of the show include:
  • The Mystery Machine, the gang's van that always broke down in the vicinity of a large, mostly-vacated property (ski lodge, hotel, factory, mansion, etc.) that suffered from a "monster" problem (ghosts, Frankenstein, Yeti, etc.).
  • Velma losing her glasses.
  • "Scooby Snacks" - a favorite of both Scooby Doo and Shaggy.
  • Scooby Doo falling in nearly all of their traps.
  • The phrase "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids" said by the offender before being taken away to jail.

  1. I remember both.

    I didn't like the one that ended with Scooby Doo wearing the mask, though. Freaked me out a bit.
