The Old Scooby Doo Episodes
For over four decades, Scooby-Doo and the mystery hunters have been entertaining viewers with their madcap activities as they went in pursuit of solving "whodunnits". A clever combination of mystery, horror, comedy, and music all ensured that this series went on to take its place in popular culture as one of the most iconic cartoons on the small screen.
The expertly voiced characters have long since become household names, preppy Fred, immaculate Daphne, brainy Velma, the ever hungry and hippylike Shaggy and of course the wonderful Scooby-Doo. As a team they managed to find themselves immersed in some kind of creepy mystery every week, and this of course was part of the appeal. The haunted settings, the creepy and atmospheric underscore of Ted Nichols, the monsters, the ghouls, the ghosts - it was like Halloween every week of the year.
When originally commissioned, Hanna Barbera were on a somewhat tight budget, which meant that the quality of the animation had to be somewhat compromised, and indeed it was nowhere near as refined as some of the animation produced for the big screen, but this in itself is part of its endearing and enduring charm. Indeed original viewers, such as myself, have loved passing it down through the generations, introducing it to their children, and then their grandchildren in turn. It's exciting without having to resort to violence and bad language, and it teaches kids lessons. It teaches them that a) ghosts and monsters don't really exist, although if they do it's usually humans in disguise, and b) the bad guys always lose. Oh if only life was so simple!
Each episode was predictable; there would be some monster or spook haunting a ship, a castle or a museum. Our intrepid heroes would track them down, finding clues and setting traps until finally they managed to solve the mystery, unmask them and reveal that it was someone they had previously met. Showing all along that you should never take people at face value!
"And I would have got away with it too, if it hadn't have been for those meddling kids!" Predictable, -yes. Corny - yes! But we all loved it and waited for a new episode every Saturday morning!
The whole series was a masterpiece of light and shade, just as the tension reached fever pitch, the spell would be broken by the crazy antics of Shaggy and his side kick Scooby-Doo. And as the series progressed, we started to see a development of the characters, with sub-plots appearing, and a gradual change in the voice of Scooby himself (voiced by Don Messick), moving from an almost understandable garble until he became the famous voice that we all recognise today.
One thing's for sure, as new generations of kids and teens start to discover the delights of this great band of characters and their groovy adventures, it will guarantee that The original "Scooby-Doo, where are you?" will continue to live on as one of the greatest animated series of all times!
