The History of Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo, Where Are You?, created by the talented Hanna Barbera, was a Saturday morning cartoon that debuted in 1969.  Scooby and his crew of four teenage friends solved mysteries, and were always successful.  They were referred to as “those meddling kids” by the perpetrators.  Famous guest stars of the day joined the gang to help them figure out who committed the crime.  Mamma Cass Elliot, The Harlem Globetrotters, Sonny and Cher, and Jonathan Winters were just a few of the celebrities who lent their voices to one of the longest running cartoons on television.

On one of your other articles I left a comment, claiming that I should wear a costume as the Swedish Cook from The Muppets. But now (after having read this article) I have changed my mind to the Great Dane Scooby Doo!
I am Danish living in Sweden.
Thumbs up for your article!

Thanks for reading! All three of my kids love Scooby Doo! I no longer get emails when people comment, so it is hard to see them in older articles.
