Popular animated series featuring Scooby-Doo, a Great Dane who joins four California high school students (Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy) on many quests to solve strange mysteries. Each mystery is current and unusual and involves the group stopping someone from wreaking certain havoc on the world. The gang were always driving in the Mystery Machine, returning from or going to a regular teenage function, when their van develops engine trouble or breaks down for a variety of reasons. Their (unintended) destination turns out to be suffering a monster problem, and the gang volunteers to investigate the case. Eventually, enough clues are found to convince the gang that the ghost or monster was a villain. Invariably, the ghost or monster was apprehended and revealed to be an apparently blameless authority figure or otherwise innocuous local who uses the disguise to cover up a crime or scam. After proclaiming "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!", ... Written by
Too-Much (later Scooby-Doo) was originally written as a Great Dane, but fearing their creation would be too close to the titular character in Brad Anderson's comic strip "Marmaduke," creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears changed Too-Much to be a big, sloppy sheepdog (which was far too close to Hot Dog from the "Archie" comics that inspired the series). After meeting with Hanna and Barbera, Scooby was changed back to a Great Dane. See more »

I have many fond memories of Scooby-Doo. It is without a doubt one of the finest series ever made despite the fact that the stories were very similar.
Each episode would consist of the gang in their Mystery Machine stumbling across a haunted house or haunted something. They would look for clues, Scooby and Shaggy would eat a lot, Scooby and Shaggy would get scared, the ghost/demon/monster/zombie would be caught and unmasked and the gang would live happily ever after.
It's one of those great cartoon set in a totally different world. Where, for instance, did the gang live? Did anyone ever see their house? What were their jobs? Where did they get the money from to fill the van up with petrol? Did their parents know what they were doing?
All the episodes were great and it was also great to see Scooby's nephew Scrappy Doo as well. This was a great series and I cannot recommend it enough. It was brilliant.
