The Mystery Machine “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?” (1969–1972)
One of the great animated cartoons of the 1970s, “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?” ran for three years spanning the late Sixties to early Seventies. Each week the gang of Freddy Jones (“Let’s split up gang!”), Velma Dinkley (“Jinkies!”), the irrepressible Scooby Doo (“Ruh Roh!”), Shaggy Rogers (“Zoinks!”) and Daphne Blake (“Jeepers!”) got into some crazy high jinks that always ended up being a mystery of some sort. The gang traveled around in The Mystery Machine — a nondescript brand of van painted in some groovy 1970s colors replete with flower power. The plots always ended with the unmasking of some ghoulish creature masquerading around to scare off various folks intent on discovering a dark secret (often involving ill-gotten gains). The gang always came through to solve the mystery, but the real stars of the show were The Mystery Machine and Casey Kasem, well-known DJ of the popular Seventies-era “America’s Top 40” radio show and voice of Shaggy Rogers.
