Great show

My kids love it! It is an amazing adaptaion it’s not as good as scooby doo where are you but it’s less racist and so much better than the modern day ones. It is a little creepy and it’s good for kids.

Great role models

Please don't let your children watch this show.

On this show Freddy is rude, Daphne is a snob and Velma does not talk. None of this was the case on any of the other Scooby-Doo shows, where all the characters respected one another. Not only is A PUP NAMED SCOOBY-DOO an insult to the other Scooby-Doo shows, it is also the exact opposite of POPEYE AND SON (which, sad to say, got cancelled after only 1 year).
