* OldShame: Freddie Prinze Jr. (Fred) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Daphne) don't think very fondly about the live action film. Among other things, Prinze hated wearing the trademark ascot, and Gellar hated wearing Daphne's trademark Go-go boots. Linda Cardellini states that she felt that the final cut of the film could've been adjusted a bit more. Originally played straight but later averted with Matthew Lillard. Originally Lillard stated he regretted working on the live action films as it seemed to ruin his movie career, but once he became the full time voice of Shaggy in the cartoons following Casey Kasem's retirement he's since changed his mind, and now thanks the movies for leading into a consistent role for him to play.

** Joe Ruby and Ken Spears didn't like ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', feeling that it missed the point of the characters and was too cynical. Some other writers seem to agree, as a few of the Direct-to-DVD films [[TakeThat have jokes at the series' expense]] -- that is, unless you see it as TrollingCreator[=/=]SelfDeprecation, given that [[ProductionPosse some of the crew]] for ''Mystery Incorporated'' returned for some of these films. Although the design work in some cases does borrow from the art style of ''Mystery Incorporated''.

Brandt and Cervone who helped produce MI have been regulars on on the DTV series for years but Mitch Watson the main producer and writer for MI never worked on any Scooby media before or after MI. Although these issues aside the current design work in some cases of the series does borrow from the art style of ''Mystery Incorporated''.


Added DiffLines:

** John Colton Barry one of the head writers for ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'' let out a little in his online rant and inadvertently caused some blowback. As in one of his insults towards how the new writers took one of the episodes he referred it as taking the show back to corny 70s humor instead of their modern comedy approach. Which on one hand is clearly an issue for him due to the TroubledProduction of the series it also was a shot not well received by some of the staff and fans.

** In a different episode of ''What's New, Scooby-Doo?'', Shaggy (played by Creator/CaseyKasem) happens upon an abandoned radio house atop a mountain. He asks Scooby if he'd like to hear his "DJ impression". When Scooby says yes, Shaggy clears his throat and does an "impersonation" of... Casey Kasem.

** Reportedly, Scott Innes, the voice of Scooby and Shaggy in pre-''What's New?'' works, isn't fond of ''Mystery Incorporated'' either.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Some iteration of ''Scooby-Doo'' used to air on Creator/CartoonNetwork ''every'' day. In recent years the selection has been limited and now on the main channel it's mostly just an occasional movie.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: AdoredByTheNetwork:
** ''Where Are You'' originally aired alongside two other new Hanna-Barbera series, ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' in the fall of 1969. By 1970, ''Where Are You'' proved to be such a ratings success for {{Creator/CBS}} that it was the only one of the three to be renewed for a second (admittedly smaller because of a time crunch) season. The 1971 reruns continued to excel with audiences, forcing the network to ask for [[{{WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies}} a brand-new Scooby-based series]].
