Classic Cartoons: Scooby Doo Where Are You?

Subscribe to KXRB-AM on

Today I live by all kinds of schedules. For some reason I seem to be booked up all the time.

I wish I could go back in time to the good life. Back to the day I maybe never even once looked at a clock.

However, it was back then that I learned how to keep a schedule when Saturday morning came around. I was not too far from a clock, watching closely for 10AM.

There was no way I was going to miss Scooby Doo on TV!

Scooby Doo debuted on CBS TV on September 13, 1969. Here are some facts you might not know about Scooby Doo and his pals:

  • The cartoon debuted on CBS September 13, 1969, and new episodes still air in syndication, making it the longest-running animated series ever.
  • A CBS exec named the dog after hearing Frank Sinatra’s nonsense line “Scooby-dooby-doo” in his hit song “Strangers in the Night.”
  • Scooby’s human co-stars Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy were inspired by the “I Love A Mystery” radio show and the sitcom “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.”
  • The show was originally titled “Mysteries Five And Who’s Scared?” before bigwigs settled on “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?”
  • The dog breed was chosen by a show artist, who was friends with the owner of an award-winning Great Dane.
  • Scott Innes provided Scooby’s voice for the movie. On TV, the talking Great Dane was voiced by Don Messick, who also provided the vocals for Bamm-Bamm of “The Flintstones” and Yogi Bear’s buddy Boo-Boo.
  • Strict vegetarian Casey Kasem voices Shaggy on the TV and insists every snack his cartoon counterpart eats is completely meatless.
  • In 1997, NASA scientists honored the series by dubbing a rock floating around Mars “Scooby-Doo.”
