Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo is an American animated supernatural/mystery comedy TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1979 to 1982, airing 43 episodes. It was the fourth Scooby-Doo series after Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

What or who can save Scooby-Doo from cancelation? Scrappy-Dappy-Doo! Meet the newest member of Mystery Incorporated: Scooby-Doo's nephew, Scrappy-Doo, a puppy who's raring to fight any and all ghosts and meanies who get in his way.

When that proved to be a ratings success for ABC, the network ordered more episodes that focused squarely on the antics of Scooby, Scrappy, and best friend, Shaggy, and dropped the obvious boring side of Fred, Daphne, and Velma (although for the next two seasons, the title cards kept them alive in the form of silhouettes in the background). Scooby, Scrappy, and Shaggy still solved mysteries to an extent, but not in the traditional sense fans had come to expect over the last decade. Unlike what had come before, the trio ran into real vampires, witches, etc.

For the fourth and final year, Shaggy and the dogs solved cases for the Fearless Detective Agency, owned by Shaggy's uncle, Fearless Shagaford. In addition, it featured another set of shorts, Scrappy & Yabba-Doo, starring Scrappy who has visited his other uncle Yabba-Doo in an old western-type town called Tumbleweed County. Yabba is owned by Deputy Dusty. How these fit into the rest of the series timeline is never mentioned.

Cast

In popular culture

  • In the Superstore episode "Golden Globes Party," Jonah tries to convince his new girlfriend and co-worker, Kelly, that the others like her, the same way the Scooby-Doo gang liked Scrappy, but Kelly says that they hated Scrappy, and he only got to hang out with them because he was related to Scrappy. At the end of the episode, she is invited to a bar by Garrett and Mateo, and when she tells Jonah, he playfully says, "Oh, see? Scrappy-Doo."
