"Although, "A Pup Named Scooby Doo" (PNSD) failed in 1991, while they ran out of plots, but he appears almost grown-up in any way. 8 Feburary 2006

Continuity Errors[edit]

Are there any continuity errors of this cartoon show?

  • I am not sure. Maybe you should ask The Weather Channel, despite they only do weather, how would I know they be running cartoons during Storm Stories? I have to check out what is on TWC.

Age in the Series[edit]

In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, the characters, Shaggy, Velma, Fred, and Daphne are minors, and they're adults in the other Scooby-Doo stuff. --PJ Pete

Unaired Halloween episode?[edit]

Does anyone have proof about this 'unaired halloween episode' that supposedly ran on Halloween, 2006? I can't find any information about by googling, so unless someone can give some proof that it aired, I'm going to take information about it out of the article. Joltman 18:54, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Inspired by Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures?[edit]

Would this be worth mentioning at all? John Kricfalusi made mention on his blog recently that when he was working on Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures with Ralph Bakshi; A Pup Named Scooby Doo came out a year after their show aired and copied various aspects of it...

He said (as quoted from his blog):

"The show [Mighty Mouse] came out and had cartoonist humor all over it. And all kinds of "plots" that didn't follow the 12 legal ones all the regular cartoon writers had memorized. No skate boards, no celebrity cameos, no "parodies" of Spielberg movies. We did have a cheesy kid character and we made Pearl Pureheart feisty and liberal, I guess to appease the Network, but we made fun of these contrived elements all the time.

Cartoonists are basically artists with a sense of humor. We make fun of everything and everyone all the time.

The show influenced the whole TV business.

The following year, the Scooby Doo writers at HB copied the superficial elements of it and offered up A Pup Named Scooby Doo. All of a sudden they were doing things that everyone told me you couldn't do in cartoons a couple years before: "Breaking the 4th wall. Takes. Wonky backgrounds. Satire. etc."

for better or for worse reference[edit]

I believe that in one episode there is a game show known as for letter or for worse —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:47, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes that's the episode's name.-- (talk) 03:23, 9 July 2008 (UTC)


I moved the trivia section to the Scooby Doo Wiki. Why was it returned here? (talk) 02:06, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Film Adaptation[edit]

Ok so this section says that the Film Scooby-Doo: The Mystery Begins is both a prequel and a sequel. I believe that the original author must not be aware that A prequel is a sequel to completed piece of work, and has an earlier time setting. So could someone please look into this to confirm that "The Mystery Begins" is both a prequel and sequel to "Scooby-Doo, live-action movie"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:07, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

The movie is out now and it turns out it has its own history that contradicts this series. Should that section be removed or edited to mention the the contradictions like the Wikipedia entry on the movie has? (talk) 16:50, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
