Scooby Doo Where Are You? #OnThisDay

On 13th of September 1969, the children’s animation Scooby Doo, Where Are You? first hit the TV screens in the US.

Aired on CBS the Hanna Barbera show was to become a massive hit with the cartoon dog, Scooby Doo, proving much more popular than the human characters.

The first episode ‘What a Night for a Knight’ set the usual plot scenario, with the teenage sleuths and Scooby Doo solving mysteries.

The original TV series ran from 1969 – 1976 and has since seen movies, Scrappy Doo (no comment), spin offs, re-runs and live action films.

  1. I used to know a Boxer-dog – Bert by name – who was very like Scooby-doo. His owner referred to his treats as ‘Scooby-snacks’. He was one of the daftest dogs I’ve ever known!
