“Scooby-Doo Where Are You.” the hit TV series, was developed by Hanna-Barbera from an idea by Fred Silverman, head of CBS Daytime Programming. The characters were designed by Iwao Takamoto. Though Scooby plays a prominent role in the series, he originally was created as an incidental character. Scooby-Doo first aired on television in 1969 and still plays regularly today, making it one of the longest running animated programs in TV history. The main characters are: Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, Velma and The Mystery Machine.
William Hanna and Joe Barbera, the eight-time Oscar duo, opened the doors of Hanna-Barbera in 1957. Hanna-Barbera had a major impact on television and became the most successful television animation studio in the world. It was the first studio to run an animated series during prime time while their other cartoons dominated Saturday mornings. With Bill’s comedic timing and Joe’s amazing storytelling instincts, this powerful partnership created legendary work that continues to entertain.
