Watch The Scooby-Doo Show

The Scooby-Doo Show is an animated mystery series for children. The lead character of Scooby-Doo is actually a dog who seems to understand what people say. This cowardly Great Dane often gives responses by speaking with a strange rolling accent. Scooby is part of a group of teenagers who solve mysteries in their spare time. Scooby's best friend is an equally cowardly teenage boy named Shaggy. The two often end up in spooky caves or mansions where they cower underneath tables or hide behind curtains. The interactions between Scooby and Shaggy add comedy to the series, which helps to hold the interest of young viewers.

The teens who make up the group of mystery hunters are Fred, Daphne and Velma. Fred is a serious minded character who usually drives the van they take to different sites around town. Velma is the brains of the group and often works out complex problems using clues to solve the mystery. In each episode something occurs which seems odd and the group of teens come in to investigate. Sometimes an object is stolen or sometimes a person is missing. The show revolves around the interactions the teens have with everyone associated with the place or person they are investigating. They come across various clues in their search, which they discuss as they try to tie them all together.

An additional element of fun is added when Shaggy gives Scooby one of his Scooby snacks. These specially formulated dog treats seem to kick Scooby into high gear where he losses his fear and often ends up solving the case. The format of the show is designed to engage young viewers into the act of problem solving by presenting them with clues and suspects. As an animated series, the characters which appear in each episode revolving around the mystery at hand, are often voiced by well known celebrities. In some cases, the character is actually represented by an animated drawing such as in the case of Don Knotts.
