Scooby Doo

It was back in 1969 when the original cartoon favourite Scooby Doo launched in the US on CBS and later on ABC, and is STILL going, although the original  batch of series ran though to 1976, and starred the cartoon humans Freddie,Daphne,Velma and of course the laid back Shaggy.

Scooby could not talk much apart from mumbling and the "Scooby Snacks", but through great comedy he managed to involve and solve his cartoon friends in ghost stories and blackmail and well, everything really. Strange that the mysterious villains always turned out to be someone in disguise, great fun.

American DJ Casey Kasem was the voice of Scooby right through to 2009. Frank Welker well known American actor played Fred

The series came from the trusted cartoon makers Hannah and Babera, and in 1972after 25 episodes of half an hour the programme went to one hour and had in the episodes Batman,Three Stooges and the Harlem Globetrotters, returning to the shorter episodes in 1976.
