Scooby-Doo was so popular to Hanna-Barbara that it spawned many different cartoon series throughout the 1970's and the early 1980's. These shows were as follows: The Scooby-Doo Show, a revamped format of this show, Scooby and Scrappy-Doo, which introduced the character Scrappy-Doo, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, and the last incarnation, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, which featured the cast as kids. After more than a decade-long absence of original weekly shows, a new series, What's New Scooby-Doo?, began airing in September 2002.
Theme Song Lyrics
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, where are you?
We got some work to do now,
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, where are you?
We need some help from you now.
Come on, Scooby-Doo, I see you
Pretending you've got a sliver,
But you're not foolin' me,
'Cuz I can see
The way you shake and shiver!
You know we got a mystery to solve
So Scooby-Doo, be ready for your act!
(Scooby: Uh uh!)
Don't hold back!
And Scooby-Doo, if you come through
You're gonna have yourself a Scooby Snack!
That's a fact!
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, here are you,
You're ready and you're willing!
If we can count on you, Scooby-Doo
I know you'll catch that villian!
