After a decade (during which time several gimmicks, including celebrity cameos, were employed to try and keep the show fresh), the writers finally ran out of ideas. In a last-ditch effort to avoid cancellation, Scrappy-Doo, Scooby's smarmy, aggressive nephew, was added to the cast in 1979. [[FanonDiscontinuity But we don't talk about Scrappy.]]

The TurnOfTheMillennium saw the release of two theatrical Scooby-Doo movies, one in 2002 simply titled ''Film/ScoobyDoo''[[note]]The last HB spinoff project to be overseen by both of its company's founders. Bill Hanna died in 2001, a year before the film was released.[[/note]] and its sequel, 2004's ''Film/ScoobyDooMonstersUnleashed''[[note]]The last HB spinoff project to be overseen by Joe Barbera, who died a year later[[/note]], starring Sarah Michelle Gellar of ''Buffy'' fame as Daphne and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. as [[TheDanza Fred]]. They were followed by two made-for-TV prequels, which featured a different cast. All four were loaded with {{Continuity Nod}}s, and {{lampshade|Hanging}}d the show's own clichés.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' (2010-2013, Cartoon Network) - Features a slightly enhanced version of the original design, an overarching plot, a twist on the classic formula, as well as appearances from some other Hanna-Barbera cartoons. 52 Episodes.

After so many years in both first-run and reruns, this franchise is so thoroughly embedded in American popular culture that even people who have never seen it are familiar with it. It's also earned more than a few shout-outs from other franchises; the ad-hoc vampire-hunting team that formed around Buffy Summers in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' called themselves "The Scooby Gang".[[note]] The actual ''Scooby'' characters 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"). In 2018, one of the biggest-profile tributes to the franchise occurred when the TV series ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' aired a [[Recap/SupernaturalS13E16ScoobyNatural full-out animated crossover episode]] that introduced the characters to a new generation of viewers (while also [[JustHereForGodzilla attracting first-time viewers]] to ''Supernatural'').
