Retroist Scooby Doo Where are You Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Scooby Doo Where are You Podcast. Today’s show is all about Scooby Doo, Where are You? I start by talking about how I watched the Show as a kid. Then I go into the history of the show, the actors who gave voice the legendary characters and touch briefly on the shows that were influenced by Scooby Doo.

I am happy to announce new a new addition to the show this week!

I would like to welcome metagirl to the crew. She is presenting the top 5 list this week and we are very pleased to have her aboard. The Retroist Podcast family keeps growing – we might need to build some new offices soon.

It reminds me I need to check on that old movie projectionist I hired, he never seems to leave the vault down in the sub-levels.

    great show, and cool graphic too. but i gotta point out that there’s a typo in “your weekly trip”

  2. The Retroist

  3. Jonathan

  4. Amelyn

    Great podcast! As always.

  5. Nice website. Scooby Doo was definitely cool. Some of the more recent stuff is pretty good too, like the cartoon movies “Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island” & “Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost” and the “real life” movies with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., etc. Keep up the nice work!

    I first discovered your site around Christmas and I have to say you just keep getting better and better! I am really enjoying your podcast quite a bit and can’t wait to see what you have next week.

    Interesting show. You’re a little off with some of your facts though. The “violent” cartoons that were being objected to weren’t the Johnny Quest type shows but the Yogi Bear type shows with slapstick comedy where characters would often fall off cliffs, get hit with hammers or get blown up.

    I also recall that Scrappy was hated by the fans when he came out, mainly because it completely changed the nature of the show. It made most of the later Scooby Doo shows unwatchable.

    If the name for Scooby was borrowed from another show then the story would likely have been created to avoid copyright issues.

    Although I don’t know if it influenced their decision, The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew were very still popular books at the time. And in some ways one could correlate most of the characters in Scooby Doo with those characters (except for Scooby Doo himself), although the personalities are very different. But the element of mystery solving is still there.

    The other day I had a LEGO store employee explain to me that the original Scooby Doo episodes were clearly superior to the heartbreaking later serial-guest-star-shark-jumps the show devolved into.

    This made my day for a couple of reasons :
    1.0 She was born around 1996. ( So : The Truth Will Out. ) ( And : Quality Lasts. )
    2.0 She had her sights on an employee-discount Millennium Falcon. ( Clearly, one of our tribe. )

    Real Media Geekdom is Transgenerational.

    Party On….Dudes.
