Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo
ABC - Premiered 9-22-79
This newest incarnation of the Scooby gang was apparently an attempt to stop the slide of the show's ratings, although all they really
did was to incorporate a new character, Scooby's feisty nephew Scrappy-Doo, into the mix. Scrappy was indeed a scrappy little guy;
he never backed away from a fight, and indeed went looking for a tussle rathern than run from danger unlike his bigger, goofier uncle.
Like millions of other kids, however, I hated the little bastard and found his antics to be anything but amusing. I also disliked the
fact that, with this new, 'hip' character on board, the trio of Freddy, Daphne, and Velma was pushed into the background so much as to
be almost supporting characters, or even straight men, by this point; by the next season, they would be gone completely. Still, many
viewers of a certain age remember this period of the show fondly.
Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo ran for half an hour this season; the next, it comprised half of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.
