Scooby-Doo is an American long-running animated franchise that was made for Saturday morning cartoons in many different versions from 1969-present. The first series, that was called Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, was made for Hanna-Barbera Productions. Hanna-Barbera made many versions like it and other shows like it until everything was made in The WB Television Network. Warner Bros. currently handles the production (making) of the show.

Though the show, people in it, and their ages have changed, the most familiar versions of the show have a talking dog named Scooby-Doo and four teenagers: Fred "Freddie" Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers. There are also some films based on the Scooby-Doo franchise like Scooby-Doo, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and Scoob!.
