Zoinks! There’s so Much About ‘Scooby-Doo’ That You Don’t Know, But Should

A dog with a speech impediment following four teenagers who solve seemingly supernatural mysteries does not sound like the sort of thing that would make for a television classic. But can you argue against the merits of that concept when its name is Scooby-Dooespecially if it’s been around for nearly half a century? Nope, neither can we.

Debuting in 1969, the Saturday morning animated series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? immediately hit a chord with its audience. Over the decades, it spawned everything from spin-off shows to made-for-video animated adventures, four live-action films (with a fifth on the way), unbelievable amounts of licensed merchandise, a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon, and so much more. All of which came together on the CW series Supernatural, which, on March 29, 2018, actually had a crossover episode called “Scoobynatural,” in which the lead characters enter the world of animation to team up with Scooby and the teens. It’s such an absolutely bonkers idea, and fans of both shows couldn’t wait to see it.

What follows is our guide to the world of Scooby-Doo in all of his incarnations, from who voiced the characters to each and every iteration of the Scooby gang. When it’s all over, you’ll likely never have to ask “Scooby-Doo, where are you?” ever again.
