Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (originally known as Scooby-Doo – Mystery Inc.)
is the eleventh incarnation of the Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo Saturday morning
cartoon TV series and is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
19 episodes have been ordered.
This is a bit of a new take on the series. For those of
us who watched for years, there were some big surprises!
First, The parents are now in the picture! (Not necessarily based on how we knew them.)
Still an interesting take.
Second, Daphne and Fred are a bit more "open." We always
knew, but the relationship is full speed this time!
As for the characters, Scooby and Shaggy are
their classic selves! The artwork is a bit more edgy, but in a good

Scooby-Doo arrive to prove all these manifestations are simply
false, but they are unaware that the locals do not
welcome their help.
In summary, I am very happy with the outcome of this
new series. Purists will complain about how some of the facts don't line
up with the old series, but we are now 40 years down the line and the
series has to fit in with our changing culture. I think it succeeds and
am looking forward to seeing the series at length! Folks, The gang is
To The Hub!
