** Yogi and Boo-Boo also appear on a TV in "Lights, Camera, Monster."



* NotQuiteDead: In "Curse of the Collar", the gang deals with the ghost of the dogcatcher with a grudge against the Doo Family, Buster [=McMuttMauler=]. Which as usual wasn't real. But then later in the seires we see that the real Buster [=McMuttMauler=] is still very much alive as well.

'''''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo''''' is one of the more ambitious additions to the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' franchise, airing from September 1988 to August 1991 for 30 episodes. In it, Mystery Inc. (here called "The Scooby Doo Detective Agency") are [[SpinoffBabies aged-down to pre-teens]] and placed in a new continuity, but still solved supernatural themed mysteries in which the MonsterOfTheWeek turned out to be some crook in a mask.

Notable for it's DenserAndWackier humor which bordered on outright self-parody, poking fun at all of the tropes and clichés from the previous inceptions of the characters, the most notable being the constant use of a RedHerring foil, seen here OncePerEpisode in the form of a rotten kid named... [[MeaningfulName Red Herring]]. This was accompanied by appropriately broader designs and [[DerangedAnimation over-the-top cartoon animation]] which made the original show's already LimitedAnimation [[AnimationBump look like still photos by comparison]].

''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo'' is a cartoon show featuring [[SpinOffBabies younger versions]] of the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' cast (but is ''not'' set in the same continuity). It featured the "Scooby-Doo Detective Agency" as [[SpinOffBabies pre-teens]] who, like their older counterparts, solved supernatural themed mysteries in which the MonsterOfTheWeek turned out to be some crook in a mask. The show lasted from September 1988 to August 1991 for a total of 30 episodes.

The show is a lot wackier and zanier than the original show. It hung plenty of lampshades on tropes used by the previous incarnations of the series. The show also made significant changes in the primary cast from the original source, justified in that they were younger and less mature versions of the original characters.

If that description sounds familiar, by the way, there's a reason for that: the team at Creator/HannaBarbera that created ''APNSD'' [[SpiritualSuccessor is also responsible for]] ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. They left for Creator/WarnerBros after the first season was finished.

** There was one episode where Red actually ''was'' guilty. This was, of course, the one time Fred ''didn't'' accuse him (the other characters had made a bet with Freddy that he couldn't go a case without accusing Red of anything). This led to him having a miniature HeroicBSOD, where he lay on the ground, pounding it with his fists while crying, [[IKnewIt "I knew it! I knew it I knew it I knew it I knew it I knew it!"]]

* RoleReprisal: Creator/CaseyKasem and Creator/DonMessick reprised their roles of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, with Freddy, Daphne and Velma getting different voice actors. This is also the first, and thus far only, series in the entire Scooby-Doo franchise in which Fred was voiced by someone other than Creator/FrankWelker.

** This was made all the more ironic considering that Shaggy seems every bit the stoner he always was, even as a kid in this series. Or maybe he's just a goof.

* LanguageBarrier: In the episode "Now Museum, Now You Don't", the monster of the episode is a "samurai ghost". However, at one point he tries to steal some valuable swords, and Velma says something to him in Japanese. He steals the swords anyway, but that proves he doesn't understand Japanese, since Velma was saying to him, "Those swords are fake." Now why would a Japanese ghost not understand Japanese? It's one of the major clues that he is actually [[spoiler:the curator of the museum]].
