A Pup Named Scooby-Doo is an animated mystery comedy series produced by Hanna-Barbera and is the eighth incarnation of the Scooby-Doo franchise. The show depicts younger versions of the title character and his human companions as they solve mysteries, similar to the original television series. The series was developed by Tom Ruegger and ran from September 10, 1988 to August 17, 1991 on ABC as well as during the syndicated block The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.


Along with most of Hanna-Barbera's production staff, Ruegger departed from the studio after the first season and Don Lusk, a longtime animator for the Disney and Bill Melendez animation studios, took over as director. A Pup Named Scooby-Doo is the final television series in the franchise in which Don Messick portrayed Scooby-Doo before his death in 1997 and one of the few in the franchise in which someone other than Frank Welker voiced the character of Fred Jones (child actor Carl Steven took on the role for this series; Welker voiced other bit roles in the series, including Fred's uncle Ed). Messick and Casey Kasem, the latter of whom voiced Shaggy Rogers, were the only two voice actors from other Scooby-Doo series to reprise their roles and both received starring credits for their work.
