Zoinks! Scooby-Doo is now 50 years old!
The first episode of “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” premiered on CBS on Sept. 13, 1969. Over the next five decades, the lovable animated dog and his band of mystery-solving friends became bona fide cartoon icons.
Their adventures still entertain kids (and their parents) to this day. In honor of the anniversary week, we’ve rounded up 30 funny tweets from parents about Scooby-Doo.
