->''Scooby Scooby Doo, lookin' for you.\\
Scooby Scooby Doo, where are you?\\
All the stars are here, waiting for you.\\
Couldn't have a show without you.''
-->--'''Theme song''' excerpt

The second series to feature Franchise/ScoobyDoo, ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' ran on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1972 to 1974. Scooby and friends interacted with celebrities and other Creator/HannaBarbera characters of the time. This series featured nearly all of the ''Scooby-Doo'' tropes and was unique in that all episodes were an hour long. In Syndication, the episodes were usually split into two half hour episodes across two days.

!!Tropes in the''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'':
* AllThereInTheManual: In his own cartoon, Mark from ''WesternAnimation/SpeedBuggy'' was drawn with light skin but for background purposes he was intended to be a Native American. For his appearance on this show, his skin was colored much darker than it ever was on his own show. Without that knowledge the viewer might as well assume he got a bad suntan.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits: Minor example, but Dribbles appears in the opening credits but he didn't actually appear in any of the episodes with WesternAnimation/TheHarlemGlobetrotters.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: While throwing his voice to make the villain think the place is surrounded by cops, Jonathan Winters can't help but make the cops praise him.
* TheCavalryArrivesLate: While it is the usual here, it is actually averted and played hilariously straight in both Don Knotts episodes.
** In the first, Don's character is supposed to be the cavalry to help Captain Moody, but by the time he got there, Captain Moody had vanished.
** And in the second, Don plays a police officer for the whole episode so the cavalry never really leaves.
* ComicBooksAreReal: Fred mentions growing up watching ''The Addams Family'' on TV and is shocked to meet them in the flesh. The Addams Family are apparently unaware of any TV show documenting their lives. So were the antagonists of the episode, apparently, given how convinced they were that everyone hated the Addams.
* ContinuityNod: in the OpeningCredits, the name of the previous series (''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'') is {{title drop}}ped. When Shaggy asks, "Where are you?" Scooby replies, "Over here!"
* {{Crossover}}: A bunch of Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters have put in appearances.
** WeirdCrossover: Most of whom are quite out of place being in a Scooby-Doo episode, and some of whom aren't actually Hanna-Barbera characters.
* EdibleAmmunition: The gang is investigating a haunted candy factory when the Green Globs lock Scooby, Shaggy, and the factory's owner, Cass Elliot, in a storeroom. Fortunately, Cass finds a mechanical jawbreaker dispenser, and fixes it to shoot jawbreakers at the door until they batter it down.
* InkSuitActor: Any celebrity that appears on the show.
* NonindicativeName: These episodes don't really seem long enough to count as "movies", though in all fairness, the modern notion that movies must be around "90 minutes" is a little unfair given the amount of movies that have existed that are under and over that length. This show being early 1970s, there were plenty of drive-in movies in the 1950s and 1960s with around an hour's run time. [[FridgeBrilliance After all,]] ''[[FridgeBrilliance any]]'' [[FridgeBrilliance form of video media longer than 45 minutes is classified as a "movie".]]
* NotAMask: in "The Exterminator" episode Don Adams keeps removing masks off Lorne Chumley until by accident he pulls at Chumley's face. "Well, I guess that really is Lorne Chumley".
* OffModel: Both the first and second seasons are rife with this, putting even the LimitedAnimation of the original series to shame. The second season, however, combats this with a greater number of frames for more [[AnimationBump fluid animation]].
* PaletteSwap: The Ghost of Redbeard in "The Ghostly Creep from the Deep" uses the same character model as the Ghost of Redbeard from [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou "Go Away Ghost Ship"]] except colored all white.
* PantyShot: Velma in "A Good Medium Is Rare" and "The Spooky Fog" (which was missing footage that CBS ran only during the second season); Daphne in "The Mystery Of Haunted Island."
* RealAfterAll: The wicked genie Jadal from "Mystery in Persia" has the distinct honor of being the first genuinely supernatural threat ever faced by Mystery Inc.
* RoleReprisal:
** The guest appearance by the Addams Family has John Astin, Creator/CarolynJones, Jackie Coogan, and Ted Cassidy reprise their roles as Gomez Addams, Morticia Addams, Uncle Fester, and Lurch.
** The two episodes featuring Batman and Robin have Olan Soule and Creator/CaseyKasem reprise their roles as the Dynamic Duo from ''The Adventures of Batman'', in addition to Larry Storch and Ted Knight reprising their respective roles as the Joker and Penguin.
* SeriesContinuityError: Shaggy is shown to have a hay allergy in "The Haunted Horseman of Hagglethorn Hall", which contradicts several past and future episodes, most obviously "The Frickert Fracas", which is part of the same season.
* SpiritualSuccessor:
** The ''ComicBook/ScoobyDooTeamUp'' comic series, which has the same basic principal as this series: OncePerEpisode Scooby and the gang are called upon and/or team up with a guest (or guests) to solve a mystery. The main difference is that the majority of the guest characters here tend to be Creator/DCComics superheroes (i.e. ComicBook/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/{{Superman}}, ComicBook/WonderWoman, etc.) or fellow Creator/HannaBarbera characters (i.e. WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest, WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones, and even HB FunnyAnimal characters like WesternAnimation/SecretSquirrel and WesternAnimation/QuickDrawMcGraw) rather than popular celebrities at the time.
** 2018 would see the announcement of an even straighter successor in the form of ''Scooby-Doo & Guess Who?'', whose premise is essentially that of this show's, only featuring more contemporary (and not-so-contemporary) guests such as Bill Nye, Jaleel White (as [[Series/FamilyMatters Steve Urkel]], Kenan Thompson, Mark Hamill, and more (plus some old friends like Batman).
* {{Spoonerism}}: Professor Flakey from the second guest appearance by Batman and Robin had this problem. For example, he mistakenly calls his invention a "sighing flute" and at one point refers to the episode's villains as "Poker and Jenguin".
* TheUnreveal: In "Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner," is "Homer Pipsqueak" real or is it just Don Knotts in disguise? And did the gang really believe he was Homer Pipsqueak or were they just playing along?
* YouRemindMeOfX: Done in the Jonathan Winters episode:
-->'''Maude Frickert:''' You look like my idol. Greatest man that ever lived.
-->'''Fred Jones:''' Who's that?
-->'''Maude Frickert:''' Glen Campbell.
* YourMom: The Joker does this to Scooby in "The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair".
-->'''Daphne:''' Do you know Mrs. Baker?
-->'''Joker:''' I know who Mrs. Baker is. ''[points to Scooby]'' She's that creature's mother! Bow wow!
