The original BreakfastClub, a popular SaturdayMorningCartoon from Creator/HannaBarbera that premiered in 1969 and has lasted in enough various forms to outlive its very creators, featuring four teenagers (Fred Jones, Velma Dinkley, Daphne Blake and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers) and their talking dog Scooby-Doo in a [[CoolCar van called the Mystery Machine]]. In many episodes of the first ''Scooby-Doo'' show they'd encounter a mystery involving some form of spooky monster which would more often than not [[ScoobyDooHoax turn out to be a hoax meant to frighten the locals away from the villain's real operation]], and which would be resolved at the end by unmasking the villain, who would inevitably utter [[BeamMeUpScotty a variant of]]: "I would have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for YouMeddlingKids, and that dog too."

Since the 1970s there have been many incarnations, including several direct-to-video movies, a series with real ghosts called ''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo'' and a series with [[SpinoffBabies prepubescent versions of the cast]]. One such incarnation added Scooby's nephew [[TheScrappy Scrappy-Doo]] (a classic TalkingAnimal) to the cast, which was when the franchise as a whole is considered by some to have JumpedTheShark. (Even to the point different times and articles have lead some people behind the scenes to have gone and back and forth on whether he was a good idea or a bad idea) After that point the show frequently operated with just Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy in a throwback style to what Hanna Barbera used to make before Scooby became a hit, seven minute comedy shorts. Daphne due to PopularityPower returned when the show mixed the old formula with a bit of the old formula for three more shows. Since then the classic formula stayed on mostly, but also with more playing around with it. The show has stayed on the air in all its incarnations due to it being popular with people of a wide variety of ages.

"Scooby-Doo" is so thoroughly embedded in American popular culture that the ad-hoc vampire-hunting team that formed around Buffy Summers in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' called themselves "The Scooby Gang".[[note]]The ''Scooby Doo'' kids never refer to themselves as such; whenever their group was given a name in-series, it's always been "Mystery, Inc."[[/note]][[labelnote:note2]]That is until S3E3 of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?'', where the gang is called "The Scooby Gang" by everyone when they return to their hometown[[/labelnote]] It has also become [[{{UsefulNotes/BritishAccents}} Cockney rhyming slang]] for "clue" (as in "Haven't a Scooby, mate").

The original BreakfastClub, a popular SaturdayMorningCartoon from Creator/HannaBarbera that premiered in 1969 and has lasted quickly became one of the most popular animated franchises in enough history. Through various forms {{retool}}s over the decades, it has survived long enough to outlive all of its very original creators, featuring two of its original voice actors, and even Hanna-Barbera itself.

At its core, the series features
four teenagers (Fred – Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Daphne Blake and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers) and Rogers – along with their talking dog Scooby-Doo Scooby-Doo, [[WalkingTheEarth road-tripping]] in a [[CoolCar van called the Mystery Machine]]. In many episodes The basic plot, especially in the [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou original incarnation of the first ''Scooby-Doo'' show they'd encounter show]], usually involved the gang encountering a mystery involving some form of spooky monster which would which, more often than not not, [[ScoobyDooHoax turn turned out to be a hoax meant to frighten the locals away from the villain's real operation]], and which would be resolved at the end by unmasking the villain, who would inevitably utter [[BeamMeUpScotty a variant of]]: of]] "I would have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for YouMeddlingKids, and that dog too."

Since the 1970s there have been many incarnations, After a decade (during which time several gimmicks, including several direct-to-video movies, a series with real ghosts called ''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo'' celebrity cameos, were employed to try and a series with [[SpinoffBabies prepubescent versions of keep the cast]]. One such incarnation show fresh), the writers finally ran out of ideas. In a last-ditch effort to avoid cancellation, they added Scooby's Scooby-Doo's nephew [[TheScrappy Scrappy-Doo]] (a classic TalkingAnimal) to the cast, which was cast in 1979. In hindsight, many people professional and otherwise consider this to be when the franchise as a whole is considered by some to have JumpedTheShark. (Even to JumpedTheShark, but Scrappy was actually very popular at the point different times time and articles have lead some people almost certainly kept the show on the air into TheEighties, cementing it into the public consciousness. A defense of the character by Creator/MarkEvanier (his original creator) has spurred an endless round of modern-day bickering both among fans and behind the scenes to have gone and back and forth on whether he Scrappy was a good idea or a bad idea) After that point not.

Toward
the show end of ''Scooby-Doo'''s initial run, the writers dropped Fred and Velma from the series (because they were "boring"). While Daphne still put in appearances due to PopularityPower, the franchise during this time frequently operated with just Shaggy, Scooby Scooby, and Scrappy in a [[ThreeShorts throwback style style]] common to what Hanna Barbera used to make before Scooby became a hit, seven minute comedy shorts. Daphne due to PopularityPower returned when pre-''Scooby'' H-B cartoons. Eventually, the show mixed the old formula franchise was rebooted as [[WesternAnimation/The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo a series with real ghosts]] and Creator/VincentPrice, then a bit trio of DirectToVideo movies (which contain the final animated appearances of Scrappy-Doo), then [[WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo a series]] featuring [[SpinoffBabies prepubescent versions of the old formula for three cast]].

The franchise was basically moribund in [[TheNineties the early and mid-90's]] (during which time Hanna-Barbera was absorbed into Time Warner's media empire and [[Creator/DonMessick Scooby-Doo's voice actor]] passed away), but came back in 1998 with [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland a well-received special]] that jump-started the franchise and has led to multiple direct-to-video movies (one or
more shows. Since then per year since 2000), several full TV series which either use, play with, subvert, or even ignore the classic formula stayed on mostly, but also with more playing around with it. The show has stayed on (and are utterly unconnected to each other), and the air in all its incarnations due to it being popular with people of a wide variety of ages.

"Scooby-Doo" is so thoroughly embedded in American popular culture that the ad-hoc vampire-hunting team that formed around Buffy Summers in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' called themselves "The Scooby Gang".[[note]]The ''Scooby Doo'' kids never refer to themselves as such; whenever their group was given a name in-series, it's always been "Mystery, Inc."[[/note]][[labelnote:note2]]That is until S3E3 of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?'', where the gang is called "The Scooby Gang" by everyone when they return to their hometown[[/labelnote]] It has also become [[{{UsefulNotes/BritishAccents}} Cockney rhyming slang]] for "clue" (as in "Haven't a Scooby, mate").
occasional video game.



Scooby Doo has also had various comic book series over the years, through Western Publishing (Gold Key Comics imprint), Charlton Comics, Creator/MarvelComics, Franchise/ArchieComics, and most recently, Creator/DCComics. As of 2015, the ''Scooby Doo, Where Are You'' comic was the longest running DC title. Most Scooby comics consist of stories similar to the original cartoons, with the occasional crossover with other Hanna-Barbera cartoons or DC superhero property. In 2016, as part of a new line of "reimagined" Hanna-Barbera cartoon titles aimed to older audiences, a new AlternateUniverse comic called Scooby Apocalypse [[http://www.ew.com/2016/01/28/dc-entertainment-hanna-barbera-titles was announced]]. As you might have guessed, it's Scooby-Doo [-IN THE APOCALYPSE-]! This also features yet another radical redesign and shift to modern times for the ol' gang.

In 2005, the show [[note]]as an aggregate of all the series produced under the ''Scooby-Doo'' banner[[/note]] briefly beat ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' for most episodes produced of an American cartoon.

Recent incarnations include ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' (A modernized return to the mystery format), ''WesternAnimation/ShaggyAndScoobyDooGetAClue'' (which is much flatter animation-wise and rather weird, featuring nanotech Scooby snacks and a [[LampshadeHanging message from Fred]] [no relation] in the title), and ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' (take the DarkerAndEdgier style from ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland, combine with a MythArc and a sizable amount of snappy meta humor). The newest series, ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'', debuted in October 2015, with the plot going towards a comedic summer road trip focus.

Since the 1970s there have been many incarnations, including several direct-to-video movies, a series with real ghosts called ''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo'' and a series with [[SpinoffBabies prepubescent versions of the cast]]. One such incarnation added Scooby's nephew [[TheScrappy Scrappy-Doo]] (a classic TalkingAnimal) to the cast, which was when the franchise as a whole is considered by some to have JumpedTheShark. (Even to the point different times and articles have lead some people behind the scenes to have gone and back and forth on whether he was a good idea or a bad idea) After that point the show frequently operated with just Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy in a throwback style to what Hanna Barbera used to make before Scooby became a hit, seven minute comedy shorts. Daphne due to PopularityPower returned when the show mixed the old formula with a bit of the old formula for three more shows. Since then the classic formula stayed on mostly, but also with more playing around with it. The show has stayed on the air in all its incarnations due to it being popular with people of a wide variety of ages
