[[caption-width-right:349:The gang, in order from left to right, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby.]]
The ninth incarnation of ''ScoobyDoo'', the show lasted for three seasons from 2002 to 2005. It is very similar to the first Scooby Doo cartoon show, ''Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!'', in many respects, but has been updated with more modern technology[[note]]... Well, ''[[UnintentionalPeriodPiece then]]'' [[TechnologyMarchesOn modern technology]][[/note]] and is usually more realistic than the older Scooby Doo cartoon shows. It also parodies many conventions of the older series.

Additionally, this series is no longer produced by the original Creator/HannaBarbera Productions (which ceased to exist by 1998), instead, it was produced by its then-parent company, Creator/WarnerBrothers.

----
!!This show provides examples of:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Gibby Norton to Velma.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Most noticeably with Velma - who is given a cute face and an attractive figure here (whereas her original design had her be very plain and slightly overweight) - and to a lesser extent Shaggy, who probably benefits more from the less rough art-style.
** In Velma's case, it might also be influence of the LiveActionAdaptation, since Linda Cardellini as her was an example of NerdsAreSexy.
* AgeLift: In the original series the characters were teenagers, with Velma being the youngest at fifteen. Here they all seem to be in their late teens to early twenties.
* AlphabeticalThemeNaming: The Dinwittie siblings Andy, Mandy and Randy.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter:
** One episode introduces a girl named Verona Dempsey who plays this to Velma (all while being really bitchy to her). [[spoiler:It turns out she's one of the episode's two villains.]]
** Velma herself was this to a kid named Elliot Blender, who appeared in two episodes as both a SoreLoser, a RedHerring and an all around JerkAss.
* AnachronismStew: In "Go West, Young Scoob" a middle-aged character is shown to have owned a laptop as a kid in a flashback.
* AnimationBump: The WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner cameo in "New Mexico, Old Monster." Even though it was simply animated in Korea (by LottoAnimation, to be exact), many have found it to be animated much better than ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' a decade later.
* AntiVillain: Used several times, a first for the franchise. Every once in a while, the characters would run into a villain with sympathetic motives - generally, these folks would be let off because "nobody got hurt" (though not for lack of trying, sometimes) or the case just dropped without fanfare.
* ArtShift: In contrast to the usual Creator/HannaBarbera style, the characters are redesigned in Warner Bros. Animation's typical "house" style of the time for this series (resembling a show produced by [[Creator/SonyPicturesTelevision Adelaide Productions]], such as ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' and ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''- both of which also aired on Kids' WB). It hits some characters more strongly than others, like Velma's totally redesigned body shape.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Occasionally episodes have this trope as MonsterOfTheWeek:
** ''The Fast and the Wormius'' has a giant Sand Worm.
** The monster in ''Big Appetite in Little Tokyo'' is "Shag-Zilla", a Godzilla-fied '''Shaggy'''.
** ''Large Dragon at Large'' has, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a large dragon at large]].
** ''New Mexico, Old Monster'' has a gigantic eagle-like bird as it's monster.
** ''A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Metallic Clown'' Features a gigantic metallic clown. Also counts as a villainous example of a HumongousMecha.
** ''Block-Long Hong Kong Terror'' also features a dragon, this time a Chinese one.
** ''Reef Grief!'' Features a giant Coral Monster. [[spoiler: Though it's actually '''not''' the main antagonist in disguise, and is indeed real. In fact, the only reason it even attacks was due to the Big Bad mining through it's home]].
* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: A lot of them:
** Of all things, '''[[AutomatedAutomobiles the Mystery Machine]]''' invokes this trope in ''It's Mean, It's Green, It's the Mystery Machine''.
** [[ItMakesSenseInContext Glowing Safari Animals]] in ''Safari, So Goodi!''.
** [[LivingToys Evil toys]] in ''Toy Story Boo''.
** [[KillerRobot The robot servant]] and [[spoiler: The '''house''' itself, which was the villain the whole time]] in ''High-Tech House of Horrors''
** A monster '''made of Scooby Snacks''' in ''Recipe for Disaster''.
** An abdominal (literal) Snowman in ''A Scooby-Doo! Christmas''.
** The Baseball Specter [[spoiler: (and this time, it's [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheCyberChase a ghostly virus]])]] in ''The Unnatural''.
** The scarecrows in ''A Scooby Doo Halloween''.
** The Demon Farmer in ''Farmed & Dangerous''
** A man made of solid gold in ''Gold Paw''
** An Ice-bodied Hockey player in ''Diamonds Are a Ghoul's Best Friend''
** The [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Giant Bird]] from ''New Mexico, Old Monster''
** [[KillerRobot Killer robot]] Cowboys (led by Cold Steel) in ''Go West, Young Scoob''
** [[EvilTwin Mystery inc. Doppelgangers]] in ''A Scooby-Doo Valentine''.
** The [[VisualPun Monster Truck Driver]] in ''Gentlemen, Start Your Monsters!''
* AutomatedAutomobiles: The Mystery Machine in ''It's Mean, It's Green, It's the Mystery Machine'', where it attempts multiple times to kill the very people who ride in it.
* BackBlocking: In "Big Appetite in Little Tokyo". When a bunch of angry Japanese villagers are crowding around the gang, one of them in a light grey shirt fills the screen.
* BerserkButton: In ''Fright House of a Lighthouse'', Freddy tells Shaggy and Scooby that the MonsterOfTheWeek was badmouthing Scooby Snacks; this gets them riled up enough to be bait ''without'' the usual bribe.
* BigEater: As always, Shaggy and Scooby are made of this trope.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Occurs in the Halloween episode with redhead Daphne, brunette Velma and Velma's blonde cousin, Marcy.
* BookcasePassage: Parodied whenever necessary.
* BoundAndGagged: Daphne in ''Big Scare in the Big Easy''.
* BrainyBrunette: Velma Dinkley, as usual. Though, it's [[{{Flanderization}} a bit more exaggerated]] in this series than the original at times. In the original, she was often the one who figured out the story behind the cases and pulled {{Eureka Moment}}s when she found a clue. In this series, she's one step away from being a rocket scientist at points.
* CharlieAndTheChocolateParody: Shaggy and Scooby once won a contest where the prize was either a trip to Aruba or a tour of the Scooby Snack factory in [[{{Descriptiveville}} Munchville, Ohio]]. And the factory was run by a man dressed like [[TheWonka Willy Wonka]].
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: While the Scooby Gang's outfits have been modernized, they retain the same classic color scheme, independent of what they wear (except for disguises): Fred's is always white and blue, Daphne is always wearing purple and magenta, and Shaggy always wears green shirts and burgundy pants (Velma's orange-on-red scheme is retained as well for other types of clothes). It borders on LimitedWardrobe.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Fred Jones. While some of the movies had been toying with this to push him away from his original flat everyman characterization, this was where the new characterization really started to take hold.
* ContinuityNod: A first for a Scooby Doo series. The gang would reference places they had been previously as well as feature recurring characters in a few episodes. Even the Hex Girls made an appearance.
* CoveredInMud: In the episode "Reef Grief!" Spencer Johnson covers the sand castle competitors with mud so they can build his underground freeway.
* CrazyPrepared: The show turns Fred into this, having modified the [[CoolCar Mystery Machine]] to be able to turn into a submarine. In "Wrestle Maniacs", it is shown that he carries a spare wrestling outfit around in the van.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Certain episodes, at least. The backstory for the two ghost brothers in "Big Scare in the Big Easy", for instance, states that they killed one another in a duel in the family graveyard. The provided flashback shows the two brothers loading their pistols on-screen, and ends with the sound of a gunshot.
* DemotedToExtra: Scooby-Doo himself, in most cases, and sometimes Shaggy. Typically the show would shift focus onto Fred, Daphne and Velma, but one major exception was the episode '"Camp Comeoniniwannascareya", which did ''not'' feature Fred, Velma or Daphne at all; it just featured Shaggy and Scooby-Doo as the main characters.
* DinnerOrderFlub: In "Pompeii and Circumstance", Fred is continually misreading his Italian phrase book. As a result, he orders a potted plant at a restaurant.
* TheDitz: Again, Fred Jones.
* DorkKnight: Yet again, Fred. Apparently he's the only one who can't see how much he keeps making a fool of himself.
* DramaticThunder: Played straight in "The Vampire Strikes Back".
* EvenNerdsHaveStandards: Velma's opinion of Gibby.
* EverybodyDidIt: In one episode it's shown that all the suspects were in on the plan.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The monster of ''3D-Struction'' is a TyrannosaurusRex-like Ghost.
* FarmersDaughter: Velma's cousin Marcy is one of these, but without the overly protective father.
* {{Flanderization}}: Yet again, Fred Jones. At least he [[TheGenericGuy has a character now]]
** When you look at it, Daphne (being much more fashion-conscious than before - even though she's still sharper than Fred, and still more competent than she was in the original series) and Velma (who must always be right and, whenever she's wrong, the script will find a way to prove her right at the end of the day...with a few notable exceptions) qualify as well.
** When Scooby and Shaggy enter a scene, you ''know'' the first thing they'll say will be food-oriented. Then again, it isn't really that different from their other portrayals.
* FoodAsBribe: How the gang usually persuade Shaggy and Scooby to be monster bait. In one episode, they use Scooby Snacks to persuade Shaggy and Scooby to be literal bait--the two end up dressing like octopi.
** Even when Shaggy and Scooby see this coming, the gang manages to work around it. See the GenreSavvy entry.
* FormerChildStar: The Mystery Machine used to belong to the Mystery Kids, a musical group that starred a brother and a sister. They appear in the episode "It's Mean, It's Green, It's the Mystery Machine", where their mother has been attempting to arrange a return to stardom for them. [[spoiler: They decide at the end that they're happier being nobodies.]]
* TheGameNeverStopped: This happens in the episode [[spoiler:E-Scream]].
** [[spoiler:From Velma's point of view, at least...]]
* GenderMisdirection: The gang once went to an amusement park without knowing anything about its owners than their names (Chris and Terry) and their fame obtained by building the park's rides. The gang (mostly Shaggy) expected Chris and Terry to be men but it turns out they're girls.
* GentleGiant: The [[spoiler: "Coral Creature"]], which [[spoiler: turned out to be one of the few (if not only) times where the monster was real]].
* GenreSavvy: In one episode, Shaggy and Scooby brought their own Scooby Snacks so they'd not have to accept the ones the gang offered as bribe. The gang reacted by offering milk, which they accepted.
** This show is often genre savvy a ''LOT''; every episode has to parody the classic Scooby-Doo formula in some way.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In "A Scooby-Doo Halloween", Velma's cousin Marcy says that she's turning 18, "Able to legally... vote." While giving Fred a flirtatious look that would've been toeing the line on its own.
* HumanPopsicle: [[spoiler:Dr. Armind Zola]] attempts to enact this trope in "Uncle Scooby and Antarctica".
* HumongousMecha: All of the gigantic monsters [[spoiler: (minus the Coral Creature)]] are this, whether it's ascetically or through a reveal.
* InkSuitActor: Brett Hull, Mike Piazza and skateboarders Chris Klug and Ryan Sheckler are among the celebrities to appear on the show in cartoon form. In "A Scooby Doo Valentine," the perps who disguised themselves as the gang are unmasked to be caricatures of their voice actors -- Frank Welker (Fred), Casey Kasem (Shaggy), Grey [=DeLisle=] (Daphne) and Mindy Cohn (Velma).
** One-shot character Mr. Wackypants ("Riva Ras Regas") greatly resembles his voice actor, Rip Taylor.
* InsufferableGenius: Velma.
* ItWasADarkAndStormyNight: Surprisingly only done on ONE episode: "The Vampire Strikes Back," it starts off as your classic Scooby-Doo thunderstorm (complete with crackles, pops and vinyl hiss on the first couple of lightning flashes), but then it gets more realistic and LOUD, and then after the loudest thunder crash of them all (when Fred leaps down from a tower to save Daphne near the end), the storm abruptly ''comes to an end.''
* LampshadeHanging: And lots of it, too. Every episode had to have at least one or two parodies of the classic Scooby-Doo conventions, to the point where it was no longer funny.
* LatexPerfection: Typically avoided in this series in favor of the villains using makeup, animatronics, holograms, etc. Though there are a few exceptions in this series, such as in the intro, and in "A Scooby-Doo Valentine" when the gang is framed by rubber-masked impostors, and Scooby is unmasked (as seen in the trope page) to reveal [[spoiler:J.C. Chasez of Music/{{NSYNC}}]]!
* LetsSplitUpGang: In pretty much every episode. The show does occasionally break the pattern of the two groups: Fred, Daphne and Velma in one group and Scooby and Shaggy in the other.
* LighthousePoint: In "Fright House of a Lighthouse".
* LivingToys: Apparently living toys are [[MonsterOfTheWeek the monster of the episode]] in "Toy Scary Boo".
* LosingAShoeInTheStruggle: This happens to Daphne three times. First time she loses a shoe in E-Scream, then in Big Scare in the Big Easy and finally in Recipe for Disaster.
* MacGyvering: It's not rare for Daphne to do this, usually with items she carries around in her purse.
* MiniGolfEpisode: The episode "A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Clown" features Shaggy competing in a competition at "Putt Putt Paradise," a mini-golf course haunted by a clown-shaped course obstacle that seemingly comes to life an attacks the mini-golfers.
* MonsterClown: A [[HumongousMecha giant, mechanical version]] of this attacks a mini golf course in "A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Metallic Clown". This is more of a problem than usual because Velma has a phobia of clowns.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Though the monster almost always turns out to be fake.
* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: Fred's attempts to use an Italian phrase book in "Pompeii and Circumstance".
** And in "Ready To Scare", only with French.
* MythologyGag: The flashback scene of Velma's birthday party in "A Terrifying Round With A Menacing Metallic Clown" is designed in the style of ''APupNamedScoobyDoo''. It explains Velma's fear of clowns--the clown hired for her party destroyed her prize gift, a set of encyclopedias, and it made Velma run off crying.
** The episode ''Simple Plan and the Invisible Madman'' pays homage to WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies, where celebrity guest stars in animated form helped the gang solve cases.
* NotHimself / OutOfCharacterMoment: In-universe: [[spoiler:In "E-Scream", this is what tips Velma off to the fact that she's in a virtual reality game: Freddy doesn't want to split up, Daphne is okay with wearing mismatched shoes, and Shaggy and Scooby are perfectly willing to be bait for a trap even without being offered Scooby Snacks. Shaggy saying "Toinks!" instead of "Zoinks!" is just the final nail in the coffin.]]
** Shaggy's bravery in "A Terrifying Round with a Menacing Metallic Clown" could count as well, if only because he didn't want a monster stopping him from winning the mini-golf tournament. In the same episode, Velma goes off cowering with Scooby as her childhood fear of clowns comes to the surface.
* {{Notzilla}}: An episode has a giant monster named "Shagzilla". He's supposed to be Shaggy cursed to transform into a Godzilla parody at night ([[spoiler:Actually, it's a giant robot built by the villain of the week, and Shaggy is duped into believing he really is the monster because, while he is asleep, he is made up as the monster and placed on a Tokyo maquette.]]).
* ObfuscatingDisability: Invoked in one episode, by [[spoiler: our villain of the day, Avalanche Anderson, to prevent anyone from knowing that he was behind the Snow Creature.]]
* OnceAnEpisode: Nearly all the parodies of the old series (especially spoofing the "meddling kids" line.)
* PantyShot: Velma in "It's Mean, It's Green, It's the Mystery Machine". But you've gotta not blink or you'll miss it. (For the record, they're white as opposed to matching her skirt color as before.)
* PreciousPuppies: The Secret Six are a group of six golden retriever puppies that appear in several episodes. And they are adorable, especially when they're performing military exercises.
* ProWrestlingEpisode: "Wrestle Maniacs", thankfully unrelated to it's [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWrestlemaniaMystery cash-cow counterpart]].
* RobotClown: The MonsterOfTheWeek in "A Terrifying Round With a Menacing Metallic Clown" is, as the title indicates, a giant robotic clown. It starts out disguised as an obstacle on a mini-golf course, then comes to life to terrorize golfers. [[spoiler:It turns out to be controlled by Mayor Snipper, who specifically built it to scare people away from the golf course because he believes that golf ruined his son's life.]]
* ScarecrowSolution: [[spoiler:Counselor Gray/Toxic Terror, to protect a camp from becoming an adult resort.]]
* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Parodied in almost every episode.
* ScoobyDooHoax: Naturally, however:
** One episode plays with it; the monster ''is'' real. It's just a creature that was disturbed by the crooked plan of the villain.
** Pretty consistently, if the monster is some kind of robot or techno-terror (like hostile robot or a [[AutomatedAutomobiles Killer Mystery Machine]]), it's real. This is consistent with the occasional way-out science-fiction explanations for the more conventional hoaxes.
** Some Monsters are actually remote-controlled instead of someone riding them like vehicles or being in a costume.
** You'd think the BigBad of ''High-Tech House of Horrors'' would be some sort of hacker or [[KillerRobot Jeeves]]. However in reality, it's actually [[spoiler: S.H.A.R.I., the AI inside the House, That's right, the '''haunted house''' itself was the villain the whole time]].
** The Space Ape's infant form subverts this trope (although the adolescent and adult forms are indeed a human), as the infant version is still a living, breathing creature in disguise, just not a ''human'' in disguise.
** In a more non-monster example, in ''Homeward Hound'', the big bad's dog (which is small dog, oddly enough) is disguised as an [[EvilTwin evil version of Scooby Doo]]. Oh, and in case you're wondering, excluding a of a lack of a collar, [[PerpetualFrowner constant scowl]] and more aggressive behavior, '''[[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/scoobydoo/images/b/bf/Scooby_impostor_%28Homeward_Hound%29.png it's actually very convincing disguise]]''' Yeah, '''that''' Scooby is '''small dog in disguise.'''
* SheCleansUpNicely: When Velma gets [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1huh81_velma-s-hot_creation shoved inside a makeover machine by Daphne]]. Parodied slightly in her reaction.
-->'''Velma:''' [[UnnecessaryMakeover I feel like I'm wearing ten pounds of makeup]] and...
-->'''Sees herself in the mirror'''
-->'''Velma:''' Wow, I'm hot!
* ShipTease: There's some of this between Fred and Daphne, particularly in the Valentine's Day episode. They are the main FanPreferredCouple, after all.
* ShoutOut: The third episode of season 3 has a character named Bocephus, as in Music/HankWilliamsJr's nickname.
* StageMom: Susan Dinwittie. She's more concerned with making her FormerChildStar kids Andy and Mandy famous again than they are and neglects her other son Randy. [[spoiler:Once it's revealed she made their former van seem haunted as a publicity stunt, Andy and Mandy decide they're happy as has-beens.]]
* StalkerWithACrush: Gibby Norton, who obsesses over Velma.
* SuperOCD: Daphne.
* SurferDude: Daphne impresses one of these with her surfing in "She See Sea Monsters by the Sea Shore".
* TookALevelInBadass: Daphne Blake, surprisingly.
* TotemPoleTrench: In the episode "Gentlemen, Start Your Monsters", Jimmy and his sister Cindy wore a jumpsuit, with one on the other's shoulders.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: All Daphne needs to look identical to her cousin Danica is a wig. She says that her Uncle Julius also resembles Danica when he wears heels.
** Velma looks like her cousin Marcy's parents, especially in contrast to Marcy herself, ironically.
* TheUnfavorite: Randy Dinwittie. His mother only cares about making his siblings Andy and Mandy [[FormerChildStar famous again]] and his accomplishments mean nothing to her except when she can use his skills to improve Andy and Mandy's career [[spoiler:no matter if it's by hook or by crook]].
* WackyRacing: Fred enters the [[CoolCar Mystery Machine]] in one of these in the episode "The Fast and the Wormious". Because this is Scooby-Doo, the already bizarre race gets interrupted by a large worm monster, which turns out to be one of the racers.
* WickedToymaker: In "Toy Scary Boo", a wicked toymaker uses living toys to wreak havoc in a mall as a cover for his real crime.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Fred, Daphne, and Velma could be so mean to Shaggy and Scooby sometimes.
* YouMeddlingKids: Parodied in nearly every episode as well; instances include having twin villains say it in unison (in "The Vampire Strikes Back") and a young kid calling the gang "meddling grownups" (in "Gentlemen, Start Your Monsters"), and in "Gold Paw", the villain refers to them as "interloping adolescents". And the villain of "There's no Business Like Snow Business" called them "meddling teenagers".
* YouMustBeThisTallToRide: The episode "Roller Ghoster Ride" featured a few scenes that had a young boy being told that he was too short to go on certain rides, such as the Sky-Diving Simulator, the Slingshot, and the Rocket Coaster. Also, he was ruled out as a suspect for being too short for the costume. In the end, after the villain of the episode was caught, the boy gets to ride with Shaggy and Scooby on the food-based ride that was built for the amusement park.
* YoungerAndHipper: Basically, this is the original 1960s show retooled for the 21st century, complete with more modern and realistic settings, situations and sound effects, and a poppy punk soundtrack (included the reworked main theme by SimplePlan).
