The Scooby-Doo Show is an American animated mystery comedy television series produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1976 to 1978, airing 40 episodes that spanned three seasons. It was the third Scooby-Doo series after Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Mystery Incorporated returns, but this time on ABC instead of CBS, which had aired the last new Scooby-Doo episode in 1973. Gone are the celebrities of the last series, with the gang back to solving mysteries in the same format as Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

For all intents and purposes, this could be considered the last "true" Scooby-Doo series (if you didn't already think real-life celebrities weren't jumping the shark), as the next series focused its energy on the addition of Scooby-Doo's nephew, Scrappy-Doo.




The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin, with musical supervision from Paul DeKorte.

In popular culture

  • For series 13, episode 8 of the BBC quiz show Only Connect, host Victoria Coren Mitchell begins by saying, "Good evening. Much of the key work debunking supernatural myths was carried out in the 1970s by American paranormalogists Norville Rogers, Frederick Jones, Daphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley. And if you didn't get that reference then shame on you Only Connect fans. You probably preferred the ones with Scooby-Dum and Scrappy-Doo."
