Scooby-Doo is a media franchise based around several animated television series and related works produced from 1969 to the present day. The central character is a talking Great Dane dog named Scooby Doo, and most versions of the property feature Scooby as a member/mascot of a detective club known as "Mystery, Inc.", which also includes four teenagers or young adults: Fred "Freddie" Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers. The Mystery, Inc. gang travels around the country and world in a psychedelic-painted van known as the "Mystery Machine", [1] solving mysteries by exposing seemingly otherworldly ghosts and monsters as non-supernatural criminals.

The original series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, was created for Hanna-Barbera Productions by writers Joe Ruby and Ken Spears as a Saturday morning cartoon series in 1969. Hanna-Barbera and its successor Warner Bros. Animation have produced numerous follow-up and spin-off animated series and several related works, including television specials and telefilms, a line ofdirect-to-video films, and two Warner Bros.-produced feature films. Some versions of Scooby-Doo feature different variations on the show's supernatural theme, and include characters such as Scooby's cousin Scooby-Dum and nephew Scrappy-Doo in addition to or instead of some of the original characters.

Scooby-Doo was originally broadcast on CBS from 1969 to 1976 when it moved to ABC. ABC aired the show until canceling it in 1986, and presented a spin-off featuring the characters as children, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, from 1988 until 1991. The series was revived and updated as "What's New Scooby-Doo" for The WB Network's Kids' WB programming block and ran from 2002 to 2006, when it began running on the The CW network until 2008. The current Scooby-Doo series, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, premiered on Cartoon Network in July 2010.[2] Repeats of the series are broadcast frequently on Cartoon Network and Boomerang in the United States and other countries.
